Peach Wine- August’s Wine of the Month

Posted on:

Hello and Happy August!

We hope everyone is enjoying their summer months!  Things are bustling at the winery and brewery, as we are in full summer mode.  The new grape plants (our babies), some of which have been planted on the right hand side as you drive up the lane, are looking beautiful.

Peaches are plentiful this time of the year  – and the scent and taste of a ripe peach are one of our summer foods that I think most of us look forward to, along with other summer time favorites .  We thought that all of you might enjoy a few recipes with peaches and wine for you to try at home.   Don’t forget our blog from Father’s Day, which includes the recipe for one of my dad’s favorite desserts – my mom’s Peach Torte!

Peach Salsa

6 ripe peaches, peeled and diced into small pieces

1/2 cup tomatoes, diced small

1/2 Jalapeno, seeds removed, diced into very small pieces

1/3 cup chopped Cilantro, very loosely packed

2 tsp finely chopped Onion

2 tsp. Sugar

1 Tbsp. Olive oil

1 tsp. Red wine vinegar

Juice of 1/2 Lime

1/4 cup Peach Wine

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Mix first six ingredients together.  Drizzle olive oil over top, mix and add remaining ingredients.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve alone as a side salad, or with chips as a salsa.  Enjoy!

 

 

Peaches Tortellini 

1 package cheese Tortellini (I used “Rana” Tortelloni cheese “delicato” from Weis Markets)

1 bottle plus 2 cups peach wine

1/2 cup pesto

7 ripe peaches, diced, skin on

Salt and pepper to taste

 

Pour one bottle of peach wine into pot for cooking pasta, then add water to this pot, enough to cook the pasta.  In a separate small pot, cook 2 cups of peach wine over high heat until it is reduced so that only about ½ cup of wine remains.  Cook pasta according to directions.  In a medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients.    Add hot pasta and reduced peach wine.  Stir, season as desired and enjoy!

 

Peach Frappe

2 ripe Peaches, cut into slices, skins removed, frozen

1 cup French vanilla ice cream

1/2 cup Peach wine

 

Place ingredients in a blender and mix, or, use an immersion blender.  Enjoy for a lovely summer adult beverage!
