When planning for the holiday season begins for us here at Ridge, one thing we always look forward to is the process of creating our annual Holiday Feast Gift Pack. We enjoy immensely, working with our long-time catering partner Jessie Mcquarrie, chef, owner and operator of Feast Catering, to see what sort of culinary inspiration he has up his sleeve to pair with our wines for the holiday season.
We also have a great time testing, tasting and finally, photographing the final dishes and seeing the Holiday Feast Pack come to life before our eyes. Especially rewarding for us is the feedback we receive from customers recounting a successful dinner party they had, because of the beautiful dishes they created utilizing the Holiday Feast Pack recipes and how they paired wonderfully with the Ridge wines.
Included in the pack are full recipes of holiday-themed dishes with Ridge wine pairings, all encased in a beautiful wood box.
In addition to the Holiday Feast Pack planning, we also enjoy scouring the Ridge cellar as well as the year’s current releases, in order to come up with ideas and combinations of wines that ultimately become our gift packs for the holiday season.
From the passionate home chef or crazy enthusiast, to the serious collector or wine newbie, our holiday offerings are meant to appeal to a broad range of people, who although have different palates and tastes, do share one thing in common – an appreciation of good wine and a good time.
Please enjoy some of the photos of the dishes from this year’s Holiday Feast.
