This week while visiting wineries in North Carolina, we met Amy and Michael Helton, owners of Hanover Park Vineyard. They are professional artists and teachers. After a long honeymoon in France, they decided to start their own winery. The Hanover Park Vineyard is located in an 1897 farmhouse. Amy enjoys cooking and has created numerous recipes. She easily cooks for two or crowds. Check out one of Amy’s recipes below.
Enjoy with your favorite rice dish and steamed broccoli with garlic and oil.
- Sauté ½ a chopped onion in 3 teaspoons of olive oil over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes.

- Add ¼ cup Viognier and let reduce down a few minutes.

Cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
