Wine of The Month


Prairie Pumpkin

This seasonal favorite is like pumpkin pie in a glass! Serve chilled, or warm it in your crock pot with a cinnamon stick for a hot-spiced treat!

$12.99 or $11.04 cs

Wine Club Members-

Remember your additional 5% off the wine of the month!


Try our sweet Prairie Pumpkin with a savory Butternut Squash Cheesecake!

We love this recipe from Paula Deen.

Just substitute butternut puree for pumpkin, and gingersnaps for graham crackers!


For extra savory goodness, top it all off with some maple-candied bacon!

- 1 lb of bacon, cooked & cumbled

- 1/2 cup of pure Maple Syrup

Reduce the maple syrup over medium/low heat until it is almost caramelized. Carefully pour over the bacon crumbles and toss to coat evenly. Spred over a foil-lined baking sheet in a single layer and let cool. Crumble and sprinkle over everything!
