Fall Flavours
Wine Pairings For Your Favourite Fall Dishes

Nothing says Fall like butternut squash. We love this sweet vegetable in all of its variations, from creamy soup to fluffy gnocchi. Try these autumnal recipes with our selection of delectable wine pairings.


Winter Squash Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage
paired with Southbrook Triomphe Chardonnay 2016
VINTAGES#: 172338  SHOP»»
"Fruit for Ann Sperling's Triomphe is a Saunders (Beamsville Bench) and Laundry (Lincoln Lakeshore) joint, dealt a wild ferment and usually large format neutral oak. This is more reductive than previously noted in 2015, i.e. it has maintained its extreme freshness and youthful gaze. It's also effusive and built with more flesh and caramel barrel addendum so it would seem that bigger and riper fruit meant the necessity of extra sheathing. Drink 2019-2022." Score: 89.

Mushroom, Butternut Squash & Gruyère Tart
paired with Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
VINTAGES#: 278358  SHOP»»
"Fleshy and inviting, showing layers of cassis, raspberry and blackberry paste inlaid with anise, singed apple wood and mint notes. Nice charcoal frame on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023" Score: 92

Gingered Butternut Squash Soup with Spicy Pecan Cream
paired with E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2016 (Viognier Blend)
VINTAGES#: 290296  SHOP»»

"The normal blend of Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Blanc tastes like a mini-Condrieu with its white peach, apricot, spice and citrus aromas and flavors. This medium-bodied, elegant, yet textured beauty over-delivers and will keep for 2-3 years." Score: 90.

Roast Chicken with Butternut Squash
paired with Muga Reserva Tempranillo Blend
VINTAGES#: 177345  SHOP»»
From Spain's famed Rioja region, this ready-to-drink, Tempranillo-based blend features oodles of rich blackberry, cherry, woodsmoke, cedar and vanilla. Serve it alongside rotisserie chicken and roast potatoes or duck confit.

Braised Pine Nuts with Butternut Squash
paired with 
Mas des Bressades Cuvée Tradition Rosé 2017

VINTAGES#: 950576 SHOP»»
"One of the darker, more traditional-styled rosés from the region (where the trend has been toward lighter and lighter-hued wines), Mas des Bressades' 2017 Costieres de Nimes Rose Cuvée Tradition is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Cinsault. It remains a standard-bearer for the region, showing plenty of texture and complexity. Subtle floral and dried spice notes accent berry fruit, it's medium-bodied and silky, finishing long, refreshing and stony. And the price remains a bargain. What more could you want?" Score: 91
- Joe Czerwinski for Robert Parker, @Wine_Advocate 


Butternut-Squash-and-Sage Wontons
paired with 
Bailly Lapierre Réserve Brut Crémant de Bourgogne

VINTAGES#: 991562 SHOP»»
"Ripe and soft, impressively rich, with tight citrus minerality. Score: 91.
