Strawberries in Pinot Noir

Strawberries in Pinot Noir

The little touch of freshly ground pepper adds a surprising aroma and bite, but if you are a purist, you can leave it out.
Servings: 2 servings


  • 1 pint strawberries
  • 1 cup red wine, Pinot Noir or another red wine
  • ⅛ to ¼ cup unbleached granulated sugar, depending on the sweetness of the berries
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste (optional)


  • Trim and cut the berries in half, or in quarters if they are large. Combine them in a medium bowl with the sugar and then pour the wine over them and let macerate at room temperature for no more than 1 hour.
  • Serve in a bowl or wine glass along with the wine and, if desired, a touch of freshly ground pepper.
