Dry Creek Peach Sauce
Here in Dry Creek Valley, the Sullivan family own & run a small organic stone fruit orchard called Dry Creek Peach & Produce. They are renown throughout the county for the best peaches, nectarines, plums and alike. Since peaches are at the height of their season right now, this was the perfect accompaniment to finish the dish and it pairs beautifully with the Sauvignon Blanc!
4 Dry Creek Yellow Peaches (peeled and quartered )
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc
Put all of the ingredients in a pot and cook on medium low heat till you can mash the fruit with a fork. Set aside.
