We are obsessed with this post on The California Wine Club’s blog pairing wine with holiday cookies! From the opening line “Why should milk have all the fun?” to the fact that The California Wine Club actually has sound reasons for their suggested pairings, we were hooked. And then to reel us in, they created this great holiday cookie wine pairing chart. We are almost as impressed with this post as we are with their wine offerings. How fun would it be to gift a plate of yummy homemade cookies with the perfectly paired wine or better yet, 3 months worth of wine (use code AFSHIPFREE15 thru the end of the year to get free shipping!)

Cookies & Wine Holiday Party
Now that you know what you are serving, why not host a cookie exchange party! All you need is a fun invitation, a few decorations & and the basic rules. Ask every guest to bake 2 dozen of their favorite holiday treat. Buy some festive holiday cookie boxes and set them out on a table. Line them with wax paper. Have a separate table for all the goodies. Set out all the treats and let each guest take 2 dozen of mix and matched goodies.
And don’t forget to have lots of extra wine glasses on hand to pair your favorite holiday cookies with wine! !
Happy Holidays & Party Hearty!
