T'was the week before Christmas, and everyone is manic

There's still shopping to be done, creating a panic.

So relax, call Baskets by Bonnie and you'll be just fine.*


We are now in the home stretch of our holiday festivities.
We have some fun new wines we recently discovered from Canopy Management / Wine Sisterhood. These bottles can be added to a basket or purchased as a stand-alone gift.

For Women Who Wine

Wine Sisterhood
The Wine Sisterhood was founded in 2007 by Terry Wheatley, Mary Ann Vagrin and Natalie Wasson, of Canopy Management. This online community is a place where women can converse about wine, food, travel, style and entertaining. Currently the "Sisterhood" has over 197,000 FaceBook Fans, as well as a presence on Twitter and Pinterest.

Canopy Management's mission is "to make wines with an original story to tell" and includes brands such as Middle Sister, pro.mis.Q.ous, Monogamy and Purple Cowboy.

We had the chance to taste these wines recently at a Holiday Trade Show. While we thoroughly enjoyed all their wines, there were three that really spoke to us.

Middle Sister Mischief Maker Cabernet

The Story
Middle Sister Mischief

Have you ever dated brothers? Worn leather pants to a wedding? Paired white wine with red meat? Then you just might be a mischief maker. You keep us up after bedtime on a school night. You change your hair color like most people change their socks. You make lives more complicated, but less boring. You'll be in the stories we tell our grandchildren. You love trouble. And we love you.

Winemaker Notes:

 what's in it? 

80% Cabernet Sauvignon
20% mixed Red Varieties 

 how was it made?

Warm ferment at 75F for extraction of color and character.

No oak.
smells like...
...plums, berry jam, and dried herbs.
tastes like...
...summer berry jam and finishes with a touch of cocoa.
yummy with...
Grilled Steak, BLT Sandwich, Roasted Lamb, Mac and Cheese.

 A Spicy & Scandalous Vino 
Promisqous Red

The Story: Are you ready to mingle? A daring dalliance of irresistible red varietals.
Grew up in (and this explains a lot) 100% California (42% from Lodi, the next new hot appellation)
Promiscous Red

Winemaker's Notes

This is why we are so darned  attractive-Fermentation-warm and long. Mixed frequently for extraction of color and dark fruit characters-to maximize our sensuous varietal nature.


15% barrel aging-to underscore our dark and mysterious personality with a little wood.


Ripe red and dark berry fruit, slight black pepper/white pepper, creme de cassis.


See above. 90% of what we taste is what we

smell. And that's a fact.

Alcohol 12.1%


Food Pairing, Suggestions:

Meat. Grilled. Roasted. Pan-seared. Game that you've hunted yourself. Burgers. Pizza. Wild salmon. Pasta with a lot of mushrooms or sausages. When you're in a red wine mood and want to drink a red wine that's not so ridiculously serious.

Practice safe sipping.

Appetizers to get the party started 
The folks at Robert Rothschild Farm have incorporated their products as key ingredients in some easy to prepare recipes that are featured on their website. We thought we'd share two of these which would make nice appetizers to serve at your next gathering.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Dip

A wonderful dip for parties which includes sour cream, mayonnaise, ham, chicken, swiss cheese and Anna Mae's Smoky Mustard.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix together the sour cream, mayonnaise, Anna Mae's Smoky Mustard and pepper. Spread dip on bottom of 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle diced ham on top of dip. Spread shredded chicken over the diced ham. Finally, spread the shredded Swiss cheese over the shredded chicken.

Place dip in oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. Serve warm with tortilla or pita chips.




Hummus Pizza
