Cookies and Corks
A Valentine’s Day spent with good friends can be just as memorable as those shared with a significant other. Offering a delicious alternative to the traditional roses and chocolates for the years spent with a group, Cookies & Corks and a bottle of wine is the perfect replacement that can be enjoyed by everyone. With carefully selected ingredients that pair perfectly with red, white or sparkling wines, each box contains 15 cookies of three decadent flavors and includes a pairing chart on the box.Some of the delicious combinations include:

  • Coastline Pinot Grigio paired with Apricot Sage: The sweet apricot and bitter herb give the wine complexity while the wine’s citrus acidity makes the pairing taste refreshing.
  • Sweet Gewurztraminer paired with parmesan thyme and white cheddar rosemary: Sweet styles of Gewurztraminer make a perfect pairing with the salty and herbal notes of these two cookies.
  • Clos Du Val Chardonnay paired with Ginger Molasses: The wine is smooth with light citrus peel flavor which pairs beautifully with ginger and nice body from oak aging (without oak flavoring) that helps it stand up to the cookie’s bold spice.
