Here's Made In Hospitality & Partnership Lead Jenna Seco's recipe for Creamy Polenta & Crispy Mushrooms you can make in a Made In Saucier. This recipe pairs extremely well with a pinot noir — Winestyr sommelier Will Whelan prefers the 2016 Mariah Vineyard Pinot Noir by Waits-Mast Family Cellars!
After more than eight years as an award-winning sports journalist, Will pivoted to the wine industry and never looked back. Now a certified sommelier and the Executive Vice President of Wine at Winestyr, he has one goal in mind: connect the best winemakers in the country directly with engaged and passionate wine drinkers. Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Will has traveled coast to coast as a cellar rat, retail shop buyer, sommelier, wine director, and distributor sales rep. When he's not popping corks, you're likely to find him seeking out life changing tacos, cheering on the Colorado Buffaloes, and waxing poetic over the virtues of antique stemware.
Winestyr gives you unprecedented access to hundreds of America's best small wineries. By cutting out traditional wholesalers and retailers and building real relationships with the people who make these amazing wines, our flagship wine club delivers authentic wines at the best possible prices to our nationwide membership.

Sitting at 2,400 feet above sea level in the remote west of Mendocino's cool climate coastal region, Mariah Vineyard offers a true expression of the noncontiguous Mendocino Ridge appellation. Waits-Mast pays tribute to that perfumed style with a wine of intense aromatics and a ripe but refreshing berry fruit set on the front of the palate. This wine is ready to drink now or anytime within the next five years.
