Armed with a tiny bit of knowledge, you can pair our wines and with your favorite fall foods like a pro.

With more than twenty varieties and a versatile range of wines, it’s easy to find the perfect combination for all your favorite fall foods from our lineup. 

  • Petite Pearl – Sweetened with a hint of honey, Petite Pearl works perfectly with cured meats, chargrilled beef, and other big, hearty flavors. 
  • Reserve Red – Aged in oak barrels with a deep, rich flavor of spice and tannins, Timber Hill Reserve Red plays nicely with red meats, roasted fall root vegetables, and hearty autumn beef stews.
