This post is a sponsored post by Whole Foods Markets. All opinions expressed are my honest opinions, and you can read our full disclosures here.

Of the four seasons, fall is my absolute favorite. The rich colors, the warm aromas, the cozy feeling of your favorite sweater, the overwhelming theme of gratitude, all the fall flavors. There is even an entire holiday dedicated to three of my favorite things – family, food, and football. It is a season that speaks to my soul. Not to mention, it includes my birthday! I guess my love affair with fall was just meant to be.

Sweet Plum BBQ Ribs & Pinotage

Sweet wine pairings can be some of the most intimidating, especially for those who aren’t a big fan of sweeter wines to begin with. Describing a wine as sweet often brings up images of dessert reds or cheap blends you drink when you are a young college student just trying to have glass after finals. The truth is that some pretty amazing, complex, and delicious flavors can come from a food and wine pairing with the right level of sweetness and balance. These sweet BBQ ribs with this delicious Pinotage will show you just that!

Am I the only one who struggles with the menu during summer time? I am always so inspired by the bright colors of the in-season produce and the crisp taste of a chilled wine at a BBQ, but the thought of cooking when it is already 100 degrees outside doesn’t usually get my juices flowing. Casualty of California living I suppose. This bright Grilled Chicken Scampi paired with this citrusy Pinot Grigio throws that out the window.  Read more “Grilled Chicken Scampi & Pinot Grigio”
