Recipe Notes

Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Iowa Nouveau

Iowa Nouveau, a light and fruity red wine, is our first wine of the season. Made entirely from grapes grown in our Iowa vineyards, Iowa Nouveau pairs well with beef and vegetable stews and soups as well as traditional holiday meals. Iowa Nouveau is best when consumed soon after purchase. Serve slightly chilled.
