The holidays are a time when family and friends gather – this year, give the gift of food. Some of the best memories and meals come during these moments. This means that you’ll probably be spending a lot of time in the kitchen in the coming weeks preparing various meals and baked goods.

If you’re looking to bring something new to your holiday table, we have a great recipe for you to try: Pumpkin Bourbon Cakes. Make sure to pair this delicious treat with our bourbon barrel-aged Gold Rush Red. This blended, bourbon barrel-aged wine subtly enhances the bourbon flavor in the cake.

Check out the recipe and bring this delicious gift to your next holiday gathering.
