What’s peachy, boozy, and delicious all over? This Sumac Ridge Pinot Grigio Lemon Pie with Poached Peaches + Cream recipe that I’m about to share with you. Seriously, it’s drool worthy.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were invited to visit The Pie Shoppe in Vancouver, BC for a media night and to make this exact pie. The Pie Shoppe has such a great atmosphere and we were able to connect and learn together.
We learnt that different groups come in for workshops and it’s always fun to see which types of people create the best pastry crusts. Ha! I was pleasantly impressed with both mine and James’ creations and even more impressed with the end result.
Sumac Ridge Estate Winery and The Pie Shoppe have created the ultimate collaboration just in time for Thanksgiving. This pie was hands down the BEST pie I’ve tried. When you get a taste of it, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
Thank you to both The Pie Shoppe and Sumac Ridge for letting me share this recipe today. However, if you are not interested in baking but you still want to the pie, head into The Pie Shoppe (1875 Powell St.) from Sept. 23-Oct.13 to purchase the limited edition pie. After Thanksgiving, the pie will be available for special order through The Pie Shoppe.
