Festive Cookies and Wine Pairing
Here in the Ruby Hill family, it’s time to bust out that box of tried and true recipes, put on an apron, and enjoy escaping the winter weather while baking something beautiful. Of course whenever we’re in the kitchen we like to find delightful wine pairings for each recipe, and Christmas cookie baking is no exception. Below, we’ve listed 3 of our favorite recipes for this time of year, as well as the wines we like to enjoy alongside them!
Peppermint Mocha Cookies with Peacock Patch Zinfandel
These cookies deliciously wrap together some of the best flavors and textures of the season. Fudgy chocolate meets peppy peppermint and a little zap of coffee in these amazing cookies. When it comes time to enjoy these with a glass of wine, we love the profile of rich fruit jam in our Peacock Patch Zinfandel alongside these cozy cookies.

Buttery Sugar Cookies with Jewel Collection Chardonnay
Whether you enjoy them plain, dip them in chocolate, or see which family member can make the most elaborate design, sugar cookies are a holiday staple. Our favorite tip for this recipe is to use the highest quality butter you can find for the best flavor. We like these cookies alongside the refreshing and light cream notes of our Jewel Chardonnay.

Ginger Spice Cookies with Reserve Petite Sirah
These cookies are a kaleidoscope of beautiful warming spices—just one bite warms you from head to toe with festive cheer. We like to add some colored sprinkles in with our sparkling sugar to capture this colorful season. When a cookie has this much personality, it’s perfect for pairing with the deep boldness of our delicious Reserve Collection Petite Sirah.
