Pumpkin spice and wine that pairs nice (we couldn’t resist the rhyme). Join us as we take a look at fall’s favourite flavour and the wines that pair well with it.
What Makes Up “Pumpkin Spice”?
With its building popularity, Pumpkin Spice has become a seasoning that can purchased but it didn’t start out that way. The foundation of the mixture is a combination of 4 to 5 spices. Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, all spice and clove. A quick 5 minute recipe (Pumpkin Pie Spice – The Pioneer Woman) and you’re ready to go.
Sweet Spiced Roasted Butternut Squash Soup (Vegan)
This soup has all the heartiness and spice of fall with a dash of Pumpkin Spice in the recipe.
Spicy Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili
The spice sets off the acidity of the tomato and the heat of the chili flakes. A perfect Sunday football or movie watching meal.
Pumpkin Spice Pork Tacos with Chipotle Slaw
The recipe you’ve been dreaming of to bring on Taco Tuesday Fall Edition.
We couldn’t decide on just one recipe to highlight Pumpkin Spice. Instead here are 35 for everything from cupcakes to crisps. Lattes to pretzels, muffins, breads, cakes and everything inbetween.
As for wine with dessert, always try to match or go one up on the sweetness level. We would recommend:
Experiment in the Glass
Ultimately if you like how a wine pairs with the food you’re eating, that’s what matters. If you’re experimenting with some Pumpkin Spice pairings, a starting point may help. Here are some varietals that can pair well with the combined spices and fall fare.
Cheers & Happy Pumpkin Spice Season!
