Raspberry & Brie Cups

Indulge in a simple, sweet, and tangy symphony of flavor that combines rich, creamy brie with vibrant, sweet notes of raspberry preserves, encased in light and fluffy phyllo dough. Pair these exquisite little bites with the Ryan Patrick Reserve Crescent Cuvée.

Raspberry & Brie Cups

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a couple of baking
sheets with parchment.
2. Arrange phyllo cups on baking sheets. Place one
slice Brie cheese in each cup. Top with 1/2 teaspoon
raspberry preserves.
3. Bake in the preheated oven until Brie is melted, about
7-8 minutes. Do one pan at a time.
4. Optional: for presentation, put one raspberry on top of
each cup before serving.
• 2 (8 ounce) wedge Brie cheese, rind removed, cut into
1-inch slices
• 30 frozen phyllo tart cups (usually found in frozen food
sections of grocery stores)
• 1 cup raspberry preserves
• Optional: Raspberries for presentation

Estates Cabernet Sauvignon & Charcuterie


Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Aromas of black cherry, dark roast coffee, and vanilla. Ripe dark fruit flavors follow, speckled with plentiful barrel accents. A lovely sense of acidity ties it all together into a rich, full mouthfeel. 

Sourced from our Clifton Hill, Northridge, Purple, Sage, and Ravenscliff vineyards. 

We suggest pairing the Estates Cabernet Sauvignon with a hearty charcuterie board. 

With exception to the wine, all charcuterie ingredients were sourced from The Cheesemonger's Shop.

Featured Wine
Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
Oakwood Smoked Gouda | Cheeseland
This cheese is naturally smoked with real Oakwood chips using a cold smoke technique - no artificial ingredients, flavoring, or processing are used! It's creamy, smooth, mellow and lightly smoky. The smoky and creamy nature of the cheese brings out the oaky character of the Cabernet, while softening the intense tannins. A dreamy pairing. 
Old Amsterdam | Westlan
A premium aged gouda cheese that pairs beautifully with the rich tannins and slight hint of fruit that our Cabernet displays on the palate. 
Humbolt Fog | Cypress Grove
Paired with our Cabernet, the wine and cheese balance each other out perfectly creating a smooth and velvety mouthfeel, and an earthy flavor.
Uncured Smoked Pork Shoulder Buckboard Bacon | Salt Crafted Meat Co.
Garlic Stuffed Green Olives | Santa Barbara Olive Co.
Organic Sea Salt Mediterranean Baked Crackers | Firehook
Balsamic Caramelized Onion Chutney | Snowdonna Cheese Company

Happy Charcuterie Making!
