Winter Entertaining at Home

easter-entertaining

Winter is often the time of year for gathering family and friends and entertaining at home. Whilst we love our time spent out at restaurants, there’s often nothing finer than sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying a home cooked meal, especially if you’ve got a cosy log fire to bask in the warmth of. With more social distancing regulations of 2020 coming into play, there’s never been a better time to gather your nearest and dearest and cook up a storm. Chiara Bailey shares some of her top food and wine matches to ensure a memorable night of food and wine festivities!

How to match your cheese and wine

wine-chocolate-pairing

Cheese and wine parties may well have been consigned to the 1970s history books, but there is much to be said for this convivial combination. Who can resist a lavish platter of beautifully crafted cheeses, whether at the end of a celebratory meal, as an appetiser, or just as an excuse to open a bottle of wine and enjoy with friends? Matching your cheese with the right wine can sometimes be a challenge – it isn’t always as simple as sticking to your favourite red or white. Just as with any other food and wine matching, partnering wine and cheese comes down to a few key elements such as fat, moisture and salt content, texture and flavour complexity, so here’s a brief overview of which styles of cheese and wine work best together and why. You may even be surprised by some of the conclusions.

The intriguing tale of how Brown Hill wines got their name

wine-chocolate-pairing

Many people ask how Brown Hill got its name, and the story behind our wine labels. It’s a tale that begins in Kalgoorlie, of all places, some 830km east of Margaret River, in WA’s Goldfields-Esperance region – and not exactly known for its grape growing! The seed behind Brown Hill wines started from family roots deeply planted in the Goldfields, which now flourish in our vineyard in Margaret River.
