I’m honored to announce today that I have been chosen to be a CK Mondavi Ambassador in 2017. Over the course of this year, I have shared various other recipes like Mid-Autumn Festival Sangria Recipe and Sweet Sensations Summer Cocktail using CK Mondavi wines. I have enjoyed the relationship with CK Mondavi for their mission statement and wonderful family oriented values. Today, I’m partnering with CK Mondavi and PRÉSIDENT® Cheese to bring you my Holiday Black Cherry Wine Dip and easy holiday entertaining tips.

Easy Holiday Entertaining Tips

I am an advocate for always having appetizers for guests. Cooking can be unpredictable. While I have a time set for the meal to be on the table, it isn’t set in stone. Having a cheese platter and wine available for my guests creates a comfort level for everyone. Plus, it gets everyone around the table for fabulous conversation.

Pair Your Wine and Cheese

Since wines pair so well with cheeses, be sure to understand a bit more about what wines will do well with what flavors. CK Mondavi lists their wines with what floral and flavors each present. For example, medium-full bodied wines, such as Chardonnay and Merlot, do well with mild, medium and salty cheeses. You can easily give your guests a dance of flavor by properly paring your wine and cheeses.

Make Your Cheese Platter Stand Out

When you put out your cheese platter for your guests, be sure to add a few embellishments. Use ramekins for dips and fun holiday touch to the board. Lay out your crackers in a nice spread. Having an eye-pleasing cheese platter with fruits and easy holiday dip recipes will leave your guests asking for your secret ingredient.

For my cheese platters this year, I will be depending on PRÉSIDENT® brie and RONDELÉ® BY PRÉSIDENT®. The brie is a perfect creamy texture with Holiday Black Cherry Wine Dip. CK Mondavi is also helping you save this holiday season.

Holiday Black Cherry Wine Dip

Ingredients

  • 750ml bottle of CK Mondavi Scarlet Five
  • 1 cup sugar

Recipe

  1. Pour entire bottle of CK Mondavi Scarlet Five into a 2.5-quart saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Pour in a cup of sugar and stir.
  3. Let wine and sugar come to a boil, stirring often to dissolve sugar completely.
  4. Once dip has a syrup texture, pull from heat and let cool.
  5. When cooled, pour dip into a serving bowl.
  6. Use berries, cheese, and crackers to enjoy this dip. It will be a thinner texture from other dips to coat the berries and cheese with just enough flavor to bring out the senses.
