Pinot Noir Wine Butter


  • 1 cup salted homemade whipped butter (recipe below)
  • 3/4 cup Cambria Benchbreak Pinot Noir
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary

Homemade Whipped Butter

  • 1/2 quart heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (up to 3/4 teaspoon, to taste)

Whipped Butter Preparation

  1. In food processor, mix butter until cream turns to consistency of cottage cheese and starts to separate from buttermilk, about 3-5 minutes of constant mixing. Strain butter from buttermilk.
  2. Use wooden spoon to knead butter in water (just like dough) to remove all remaining buttermilk. Drain and repeat until water is clear.
  3. Remaining whipped butter is ready to serve or for adding flavoring ingredients.


  1. Fill shallow saucepan with wine and simmer until consistency becomes syrupy (reducing to about 1/8 cup).
  2. Let syrup cool completely.
  3. Add syrup and rosemary to whipped butter and mix. Serve chilled.
