Thank you to Mizkan Holland House for providing me with product in exchange for this honest blog review. All opinions are 100% my own.

I have always shied away from recipes that call for cooking wine. My reasoning is, I don’t drink wine, therefore I don’t know which wines are good to cook with.  Holland House made cooking with wine easy for me…and everyone like me. Holland House cooking wines come in five types- Marsala, Red, Sherry, White, and White With Lemon. Each bottle of cooking wine gives you suggestions as to which dishes it would be best in. This helps me so much!


I decided to make my family a pot roast. I chopped my veggies and put them in the bottom of my crockpot. Then I took my thawed roast, heavily seasoned it with salt and pepper, and placed it into a screaming hot pan with a little bit of extra virgin olive oil. Doing this seared the meat, helping to hold in the juices. Once my roast had been seared on all sides, I placed it in the crockpot on top of my veggies and set it on low heat. I chose to finish the dish with Holland House Red Cooking Wine. I didn’t want to over-do-it with the cooking wine. I used 1/3 cup and I simply poured it all over the roast. I locked down the lid on my crockpot and went about my day. That evening we came home to the best aroma. Our dinner smelled amazing! As we all sat down at the table, I heard nothing but compliments on the meal. The roast was moist and the veggies were perfectly cooked. Cooking with Holland House red wine enhanced the flavors of our meal.


I look forward to trying all of the other Holland House cooking wines. I think I will use the white wine with lemon in my next seafood pasta dish.

    I’ve used Holland House cooking wine for years. It’s super handy to have in the cupboard; the only caveat is that you need to reduce the amount of salt you use in the recipe because the wine itself is pretty salty (I think they add the salt so that it can’t be drunk straight, as wine.)

    I have tried this red cooking wine and I love using it. It would be nice to try the different types and learn how to cook with them also.

    The red cooking wine would be super versatile and would probably add a lot of flavor to my dishes!

    I’ve used the red and white cooking wine since I would have no clue what to get at the liquor store. I don’t drink so my use is strictly for cooking. They have so many choices at the store, it’s just easier to get this wine to always have on hand.
