Peaches in Red Wine

This is another classic Italian dessert. Fruit and wine. Basic, simple and delicious. You can of course use an Italian red wine but a Pinot Noir or Merlot or other sweeter red wine works just as well. It’s your choice. You can make it Tuscan style by adding a vanilla bean and ¼ cup roasted whole almonds to the mix!


½ cup sugar

1 bottle Italian red wine of choice (a sweeter one is good but whatever you have is fine)

6 ripe white or yellow peaches


1. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar and wine and stir until sugar is dissolved.

2. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits (peeling is optional). Cut the peaches into slices. Stir them into the wine/sugar mixture. Cover and let stand for 2-3 hours.

3. Scoop the peaches and wine into wine glasses or short beverage glasses.

Serves 6
