“Winter White, Holiday Red or something else instead” David shares ideas on how to get the most out of your holiday wine and food pairings. When fall rolls in, our taste in wine changes gradually, but before too long, the whites are all but gone and the heartier reds take their place. The exceptions are roses and bubbly which pair perfectly with a wide variety of dishes that are nearly always found on the celebratory table. Get your pen and paper out because you’re going to learn everything you need to know about food and wine pairing over the holidays from certified foodie and wino David Wilson.
Next, David talks with Trip Middleton of Boxxle…. about their new product which changes the way that you can enjoy your wine in a much longer time span… Box wine has come a long way since it was originally introduced and you can now find some pretty amazing wine in a box. And it just keeps getting better — each year, more vintners introduce box wines to their collection. Why? Because like us, they appreciate the box’s benefits — it keeps their product fresh, packs some incredible environmental benefits, and lets us all pay for the wine, not the bottle.
With Boxxle, you still purchase your favorite 3 liter Bag-in-Box wines or try a new one, bring the wine home and place the interior bladder into Boxxle. Boxxle raises the wine up, allowing the spigot to be above your glass, and automatically compresses the bag so you get the most from your favorite wines, all in an attractive countertop dispenser.
