Recipe Tips

Fondue is typically made from cheese, white wine and savory seasonings into which French bread is dipped. Here, the cheese is used as a dipper for this richly flavored fondue. Try dipping pieces of fruit, gingerbread or angel food cake as well as cheese into this shiny, berry-colored syrup.

love this recipe...I have made it several times. I use the Cabernet Sauvignon. I do cut back on the sugar just a tiny bit. I love the flavor of this dip with swiss cheese, it is great with other cheeses and bread or crackers. Just the best and a unique appy to take to a get together. I have made this the day before and keep it in the refrigerator. this works well and saves time. try it you won't be disappointed.

We served this for a Halloween cocktail party as a "blood red" dip for sharp cheddar cheese & fruit. I will make this anytime during the fall/winter season. It was delicious, unique & easy to make. I used Merlot & organic sugar, and increased the ingredients by 50%. It was served in small batches to keep it well chilled. It is also nice drizzled on a plate for cheese cake or a little on ice cream. My guests were impressed that I did a "wine reduction" so they must not realize how easy it was :-) !!
