This Raspberry Baked Brie is sweet, savory, and perfect for entertaining during the holiday season. It makes an easy and impressive appetizer with minimal prep time!
Decorating the Christmas tree, wrapping presents, making cookies, parties, shopping, get-togethers, more wrapping (oh, the wrapping). It’s never ending, right?
That is the joy of the holiday season, friends! It’s busy and goes by in the blink of an eye, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Except maybe to slow down the time just a little.
I look forward to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season every year, except for the wrapping part. That, I can definitely do without. It often looks like a five-year-old wrapped gifts when I attempt it, so I just leave that all to the hubster, or stuff my gifts into pretty gift bags. I’m obsessed with those, no joke!
But the hubster and I have a pretty good system worked out though, as he doesn’t mind wrapping and I thoroughly hate it! So I assemble the gift, get it ready, write out the name tag, and then pass it over to the hubster to wrap. Not a bad deal, right?
When it comes to parties and get-togethers, it’s all me. I love thinking of the perfect appetizers or dishes to serve that capture the flavors of the season. And every year I challenge myself to make a new and unique dish that will a favorite of everyone.
So when I had the opportunity to try Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine, I knew this Raspberry Baked Brie would go along perfectly with it. If you’ve never heard of Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards before, then you’re in for a special treat. It’s Carneros’ original sparkling wine house, which was founded and owned by the Ferrer family of Spain.
And that’s why this Raspberry Baked Brie and Sonoma Brut sparkling wine from Gloria Ferrer make the perfect combination. This sparkling wine has a delicate pear and floral notes, with hints of almond. It makes a delicious complement to enjoy with this appetizer.
