Woodbridge Caramelized Onion Dip

Makes: 4 to 6 appetizer servings


3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion, sliced into half rings
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons chives, chopped

Melt butter over medium-low heat, and then add onions, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Slowly caramelize the onions by letting them sit for about 3 minutes and then stirring. Do not allow the onions to burn. If the pan gets too dry, add a small amount of water.

When the onions are a rich brown color (about 30 minutes), add the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, and cook for another 3 minutes or until the wine is completely absorbed. Remove from heat.

Add cream cheese, sour cream and yogurt to the bowl of an electric mixer, and beat until smooth on medium-low speed. Turn the mixer down to the lowest speed, and add the onions. Add seasonings to taste.

Garnish with chives, and serve at room temperature.

*Entertaining Tip: Make dip up to two days in advance, reserving a tablespoon or so of the caramelized onions for garnish. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving to bring to room temperature. Pair with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon.
