  • Pedroncelli Mulled Wine

    Gary Gross, our Tasting Room Manager, developed this recipe for one of our events. We think it is a great addition for fall, winter or holiday gatherings.

  • Perfect Chocolate Truffles

    These truffles are meant to look like the real thing--small, irregular mounds instead of perfectly spherical balls. If you decide to omit the liquor flavoring, reduce the chocolate from 9 to 8 ounces. Cooks who favor the microwave can melt the chocolate at 50 percent power for about 3 minutes. The ganache mixture is quite forgiving. If it cools too much in step 1, place the bowl in a larger pan of warm water and stir the mixture until it has softened and warmed up. If this overwarms the mixture, cool it again as directed. The same flexibility applies if you overwhip the ganache by mistake. Simply warm it over the hot water bath, cool it, and whip it again. One person alone can dip and coat the truffles, but the process is easier when there's a second person to roll the coated truffles in cocoa and lift them onto a clean pan.
