Here we the 4th of July holiday!  Why is it that summer always seems to pass so quickly?  The grapes are sure getting there, soaking up the sunshine and sweet summer breezes.  Still a few months away from harvest, these babies need a bit more time to languish on the vine.  Here's to doing some languishing of our own this week...

Yesterday was Canada Day for our buddies to the North!  Often referred to as Canada's "birthday" the holiday is celebrated much like our Independence Day this week:  lots of food, drink, parades and fireworks!  And, it seems like, much Bogle wine in the province of Alberta. 


Dear Bogle:    

  We were skiing in Banff, Alberta Canada at the end of February and went to one of the best restaurants, The Salt Lick, for a nice steak dinner. And to our great surprise they had two of our favorites on their wine list. Phantom and Petite Sirah.

   Well, we had no choice but to have a bottle of each.  We were at the restaurant for some time to enjoy our wine.

Now that's what we call après ski!  Thanks so much guys...that dinner looks delicious!

ESSENTIAL burger...
Anyone see a theme here?
Last month we shared a recipe for ESSENTIAL barbecue sauce. We heard from many of you that it was finger-lickin' good! This month we've been trying our ESSENTIAL with a few burger recipes...and we thought you'd like this one! Just in time for the 4th!!                                 (Makes 4 Bogle-sized burgers!)

1 1/2 lbs ground beef, your choice

1/2 cup Bogle ESSENTIAL RED, divided

1 sm onion, chopped

2 cloves, grated

1 T. Dijon mustard

½ tsp salt

½ tsp black pepper

4 Kaiser or brioche buns, sliced & toasted

1 ripe tomato, sliced

4 slices bacon, cooked and crisp

4 slices smoked Gouda cheese

Cooking instructions:
  • Heat a small skillet over medium high heat.  Add some olive oil or butter.  Sauté the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, until translucent. 
  • Add 1/4 cup ESSENTIAL, and allow to cook down and caramelize, about another 15 minutes. Stir frequently.  Remove from heat, allow to cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, onion mixture, mustard, salt, pepper and remainder of the wine. 
  • Mix by hand until just combined.  Separate into 4 patties. 
  • Grill the patties on your choice of charcoal or gas grill, or you can use a grill pan or broiler.  (We prefer the taste of the charcoal...but to each his/her own!)
  • Make sure to cook until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Just before taking off the grill, top each with a slice of Gouda. 
  • Build the burger!
    • On your buns, layer the hamburger pattie, the bacon and tomato.  Add any other condiments you would like.  (I'm a purist...nothing else for me!)
  • Serve with baked sweet potato fries and chilled watermelon...that's a party on the plate!

The red wine flavors will permeate the burger, and you can echo them with any of our reds.  That ESSENTIAL will be a knock out though!  Enjoy!!
