There is something about summer and grilling that go hand in hand. I often cook while I’m at work (If you follow me on Instagram you see my work dinners almost everyday) and it’s almost always on the grill. Sadly, at home we do not have a grill. Le sigh.

Luckily I have a grill pan so I decided that it was high time I took advantage of this and grill up something delicious! My kitchen has been overflowing with fruit and vegetables and earlier this summer peaches were taking over my kitchen! I decided to grill them up, cover them in a sweet delicious sauce and have a glass of wine. The perfect summer dessert!

Earlier in the summer I was contacted by the fine folks at 14 Hands Winery and they offered to let me try some of their delicious wine. They asked if I could pair it with something grilled and I was totally up for the challenge! I read about each of their wines and while they all sounded (and are!) delicious I had to go with the white blend to pair with the peaches. The description totally sold me!

“intense aromas of peach compote with tropical and floral nuances. On the palate, flavors of fresh apple, pear and melon are balanced by juicy acidity and ends with a bright, vibrant finish.”

It was by far the best choice! The sweetness of the grilled peaches paired perfectly with the Hot to Trot White Blend!

Also, because the peaches were not naturally sweet enough, I decided to make a quick sour cream brown sugar sauce. This sauce is an adaptation from a dip I had years ago on strawberries. Except when I had it then I just dipped the berries in sour cream and rolled it in brown sugar. This time I combined it all to create the mother of all fruit dips/sauces.

    I don’t have a grill yet either but did set up an electric Cuisinart grill/griddle and only tried it once. I certainly am looking forward to more grilling. The peaches sound great, i like your sauce!
