Eating healthy in the new year doesn’t mean depriving yourself of all things. For us, this especially means wine.
There are even some health benefits to drinking our favorite bottles: wine has antioxidants, which can boost your immune system and can lower cholesterol, just to name a few.
The whole experience of wine is only amplified with a great meal. So, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite recipes to pair with Twelfth Night wines.
Slow cooked Bolognese with Sweet Potato Spaghetti
This classic meal is made paleo- friendly by substituting pasta with currently popular sweet potato noodles. Almost any type of vegetable can be substituted if you wanted a truly low-carb option (we love zucchini noodles). This easy meal can be enjoyed with most red wines, like our Twelfth Night Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir can help to raise good cholesterol while lowering bad cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Turkey Meatballs with Slaw Dressing
This salad is chock full of great nutrients with a mix of fruits, veggies, cheeses, and also good fats. This is what they mean when nutrition experts tell us to “eat the rainbow.” It will leave you feeling full, satisfied, and excited to cook the recipe over and over again. Pair with a zesty white wine like our Twelfth Night Sauvignon Blanc, which contains antioxidants and won’t leave you feeling awful the next day.
Paleo Chicken Tortilla Soup
Perfect for chilly weather, this chicken tortilla soup is free of gluten and dairy, and is still extremely satisfying. The best part about it is its simplicity. Put it all in a pot and let it sit for 2 hours worry free and pair with our Twelfth Night Riesling. This will complement the spiciness and bring out distinct lime flavors and fruity accents. White wines like Riesling can act as an anti-inflammatory to possibly reduce the pains of arthritis and osteoporosis.
These mini pizzas are fun to make and fun to eat. Top them with a low-fat cheese or vegan cheese, and in-season vegetables for a filling dinner. This low-carb dish tastes even better with a drizzle of balsamic and a glass of our Twelfth Night Pinot Noir Rosé. Rosé is not just for summer either. You can enjoy it all year round!

It’s been quite the year for us at Twelfth Night Wines! 2017 was all about growth and good wine. We bottled delectable new wines, expanded to new stores, and spread our name at charitable events and fundraisers. Twelfth Night has remained committed to community and creating the highest quality of wine possible. We would like to thank all of those who have helped us become what we are today. Read more about our recent adventures below and have a happy new year!
It was a beautiful day for a harvest this year. In Central Otago, the sun was shining as our team carefully picked beautiful bunches of ripe Pinot Noir grapes to be trucked off to the winery for processing. Our harvest crew hailed from all over the world and as usual there was a spirit of fun and camaraderie in the vineyard. For a detailed look at our experience harvesting, check out this video
Introducing new wines
We have some brand new varietals to add to our ever-expanding wine list. This year we introduced a Pinot Noir Rose and a Late Harvest Gewurztraminer. Twelfth Night now offers five different wines including a Sauvignon Blanc, a Riesling, and Pinot Noir. Whether you’re lounging at home with the kids or hosting a dinner party, we think you’ll be able to find something tasty that suits your mood!
Expansion to new stores
Twelfth Night is now being sold in more stores across the United States. In 2017 we expanded to three additional states including North Carolina, Florida, and Indiana. We couldn’t be more excited to keep introducing our quality product to as many people as possible.
Charities and festivities
We have become quite good at multitasking, simultaneously pouring wine, meeting new people, snapping photos, and helping others. We were proud and thankful to attend many charitable events this year. It was our fourth year supporting the WGBH Food & Wine Festival, our second year supporting We Can at the Wequassett Resort in Cape Cod, and our first year at various other important fundraisers. We believe that food and wine is a great way to bring people together.
In Store Wine Tastings
If you were in Boston at all this year, it is possible you may have tried some of our wines in a local store. From the Brookline Liquor Mart in Chestnut Hill to Pemberton Farms in Cambridge to Baccos Wine & Cheese in Boston, we got around. We love talking to new people (wine connoisseur or not). If you happen to run into us in the future don’t be afraid to ask questions, we’ll be sure to give out a generous pour!
It's safe to say 2017 was a great year for Twelfth Night. Lucky for us, every year is a year in wine. Check out our time at one of our favorite times favorite festivals!...
