Winter Wine and Food Pairings

Winter Wine and Food Pairings

The winter season brings sweater weather with chilly temperatures and cold nights. Though it may not get as cold in San Luis Obispo as other parts of the country, we’re happy to wrap ourselves in a comfy blanket when the temperature dips and stay in with a home-cooked meal, crackling fire and a bottle of wine.

For the next chilly night that you decide to stay cozy at home, consider preparing these delicious recipes that will satisfy your appetite and warm your soul.
