wine and food pairing

Happy New Year! All of us at Goosecross wish you a happy and healthy 2011! On these cold winter days we always turn to comfort food – the kind that warms us from the inside. Colleen developed the recipe for these slow-cooked short ribs to warm your kitchen and your heart. The fork-tender short ribs with […]


How about something just slightly exotic for Mother’s Day this year? That’s our Napa Valley Viognier with its heady stone fruit, floral and spice aroma. And, this oh so easy to prepare entrée, with a slight Asian accent, offers a beautiful yin and yan of sweet and savory flavors as the perfect complement. Toss together […]

2007 Yountville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

by David on March 22, 2010

New release: What a vintage! As Geoff, our Winemaker, says “On a year like this, the best thing for me to do is try to stay out of the way and let the fruit do the talking.” A spring, summer and fall of warm, sunny days and cool, foggy nights adds up to ripe, luscious […]


As the days get warmer and longer it makes a nice change to enjoy some lighter fare. Colleen’s new recipe brings together a delicious melange of your favorite flavors – the zesty lemon makes a great counterpoint to the rich, buttery olives.

Just Released! 2008 Goosecross Viognier

by David on September 28, 2009

Viognier may be shy bearing and difficult to press but the payoff is gorgeous stone fruit and flowers! We’re talking fresh peach, nectarine, honeysuckle, grapefruit and something slightly tropical like pineapple – absolutely delicious! Hear all about it! Viognier and food: Bone dry, with all the body and weight of a Chardonnay, it makes an […]
