Fall is about to give way to something else around here. It’s a time of year where I’m as likely to use the grill as the oven and comfort food is replacing lighter fare. Short ribs, pot roasts, meatloaf, roasted root vegetables and very soon, turkey and the whole holiday spread. The Cline Winery offers consistent, fruity wines perfect for a heartier menu. I use the Ancient Zin in my short rib recipe so it makes for a great pairing. The Pinot Noir is a classic turkey pairing and the Viognier is another really easy wine to pair with food.

Cheers,
