December 2020 Pairing

Our theme this month is Holiday Wines. There’s no question that the holiday season is upon us and that it is vastly different this year. Whether you’re celebrating Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, Festivus, or a bit of all four, you’re probably thinking about holidays of the past and missing friends and family.

Whatever your holidays look like this year, we’ve chosen some spectacular wines that we hope will bring a little joy to your home during the season of lights.!

And we're thrilled to partner with Pix Patisserie and their extraordinary executive pastry chef, Cheryl Wakerhauser, to bring you delicious sweet treats to pair with your wines! Have you checked out their Pix-O-Matic vending machine yet? Open 24 hours, the machine has a wide selection of their most popular desserts ready for contactless pick up!

Once you've got your wines in hand, you can call ahead to order or just stop by Pix Patisserie and use their Pix-O-Matic machine to order these amazing treats.
