      Appetizers Made Easy & A Free Download!

      Turkey might be the star of the show at the dinner table on Thanksgiving, but that doesn’t mean your appetizers can’t pack a punch, too! 

      Providing apps and starters is a balancing act. You want your guests to have something delicious to snack on before the main course comes out, but you also still want them to reserve an appetite for dinner. We’ve lined up three appetizer options that are the perfect blend of light and delicious. And the best part? You can pick everything up right in store!

      Spinach artichoke dips are always a great route to go for appetizers. Our River Valley dip mix is so easy - just add cream cheese! Paired with our Isola crostini is the perfect light bite for your guests this Thanksgiving!


      Bruschetta has never been so good! The spicy olive bruschetta is a great take on an old favorite. Served with our Isola bruschetta for a perfect blend of flavors!
      Chips and salsa are a crowd pleaser for a reason. Pair River Valley Ranch's heirloom tomato salsa with Masa Uno's chips and you've nailed the simplest appetizer with bold flavor!



      Wine Pairings for the Thanksgiving Table

      Wine Pairings for the Thanksgiving Table

      Thanksgiving is almost here, and while you've probably got the main dishes planned for, we're here to be your wine pairing guide as you serve up some amazing meals. 

      Wine, when done right, can be the best addition to any gathering. Thoughtful pairings enhance already delicious dishes. So, here's a little guide on wine pairing for the Thanksgiving table.

      Start your pairings with a table wine. A wine like this should be a balance of sweet and dry flavors. You'll please a number of palates, and it will compliment both side dishes and main courses. Our recommendation: August Hill's Berlyn, can be served chilled or at room temperature.


      Once the turkey is carved, uncork a specialty wine meant for the main event. Try a wine with a bolder flavor or some bubbles that not only might be something new for your guests, but will wow them with its compatibility your main dish. Our recommendation: August Hill's Cranberry Infusion, a bubbly take on a traditional Thanksgiving duo.


      And finally, to round out your wine pairings for the meal, finish with a classic moscato. The sweet and light flavors pair best with desserts. Our recommendation: August Hill's Moscato, served chilled - perfect with fresh slice of pumpkin pie.

      Halloween Grazing Board - Sweets and Treats!

      Halloween Grazing Board - Sweets and Treats!

      Let's be honest, some of the best parts of Halloween are all the treats! But, we're leveling up our candy game with a grazing board this year.

      Grazing boards are perfect for gatherings both large and small. Essentially, they are platters with small bites. They can be traditional appetizers, fruits, or even veggies. But, in the spirit of Halloween, we're going all out - sweet style! And the best part about this grazing board? The kids will love it, too!

      Building your board is easy- grab your favorite salty and sweet treats and a platter or serving board (we have some dreamy serving boards in the store that you might just have to snag for this)! Then arrange your snacks however you want. Our favorite way is to have a balance of salty and sweet, organize items abstractly, and cover the board entirely.

      Here are some fun ideas to put your grazing board to use:

      -Having a Halloween get-together? Plan ahead and put a small grazing board together. Everyone get's their candy fix and can spend some time together, too!

      -Host a movie night after Halloween. Put all that extra candy to use with a grazing board full of salty and sweet options that are sure to meet everyone's snack fix.

      Happy grazing!
