Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Candleglow®

White Candleglow® White is a new, dry, fruity wine with pineapple, pear, melon, and apricot notes on the nose and palate and a finish that hints of green apple. This wine is made from a blend of La Crescent, Brianna, and Edelweiss grapes grown in our Mahaska County vineyards.
