What’s not to love about wine? It’s the perfect aperitif, it complements food, assists digestion and it’s just great to share with friends. On top of this, it adds delicious flavour to all types of culinary dishes. To demonstrate how versatile it is, we’ve rounded up three tasty desserts where wine is the key ingredient.
Run by the Grier family for 35 years, Villiera, situated in the Stellenbosch winelands, is known for its award-winning Cap Classique sparkling wines and other distinctive varieties. Their portfolio includes the highly-acclaimed Tradition MCC, the environmental “Down to Earth” range, the flagship Monro, a Merlot and the zenith of their winemaker’s craftsmanship, The Clan which has just been released.
When making the following desserts, you can use Villiera’s Cabernet Sauvignon in both the Pancake Stack with Pears in Red Wine and the Pears poached in Red Wine. Try their Down to Earth red in the Spicy Pear Panna cotta with Red Wine Syrup. Accompany them with a glass of Villiera’s MCC sparkling wines.
