Pairing a Wine and other Foods with Super Bowl XLV

So much of the country is covered with snow, have a couple of mulled wines available for your Super Bowl Sunday guests. If you are looking for a hot wine beverage that’s different than the traditional mulled red wine try the Mulled Peach Cobbler recipe.

Hot Peach Cobbler in a Mug


1 bottle Carlson Peach Wine
4 – 6 T pure maple syrup
1/4 t cinnamon
1/4 t vanilla

1. Add wine to a non-aluminum pan.
2. Add all other ingredients and heat. Do not boil.
3. Serve warm and enjoy.
Adjust to taste.

Barrington Cellars Cincinnati Chili


1 pound lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1/2 cup Barrington Cellars Baco Noir
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Note: may substitute a dry red for the Baco Noir.

1. In a large saucepan or soup pot, brown the beef with the onion over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until no pink remains in the meat.
2. Drain off any excess liquid, then return the saucepan to the stove and add the remaining ingredients; mix well.
3. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
TIPS: This type of chili has the mole (pronounced “moe-lay”) flavoring that is popular in traditional Mexican cooking. And to make it authentic Cincinnati-style chili, serve it up over spaghetti and sprinkle finely shredded Cheddar cheese over the top.
