Many of us are cooking at home. We are learning, creating, and wine pairing. One of our favorite ways to discover recipes and match with a bottle of wine are recipes from wine country. Many wineries provide fantastic recipes on their Websites. We will start with the Napa Valley and see which dishes are worthy of a try in your home. These are just a few of the wineries in the Napa Valley that post recipes from their resident chef or family members. It is a terrific resource for foodies, home cooks, and wine lovers. If you like a recipe, why not order some wine from the winery’s online wine shop. Treat yourself; you deserve it!
