The Recipe How-To

Step 1: Prep the Peaches

First things first, prepare the peaches! To do this, the peaches need to be peeled and sliced. Start by washing your fresh peaches, then use a sharp knife to cut them in half along the natural seam. Twist the two halves to separate them and remove the pit. Once you have removed the pit, use a paring knife to gently peel away the skin.

Once the peaches are peeled and sliced, place them in a bowl and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar. Use a spatula or spoon to toss gently and coat the peaches evenly.

Step 2: Add Wine and Vanilla Pod

Next, it’s time to add in 1 cup of dry white wine to the bowl of sugared peaches. For best results, something dry like a cabernet, pinot noir or chianti will complement the sweetness of the fruit without creating a jammy taste.

After adding in the wine, split a vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the seeds with a knife. Add both the pod and seeds into the bowl with your sliced peaches.

Toss everything together gently until thoroughly mixed.

Step 3: Chill and Serve

Once everything is mixed together in your bowl, it’s ready for chilling! Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.

When ready to serve, you can enjoy this mixture on its own as poached peaches in white wine or as part of a larger cocktail like sparkling peach sangria or peach nectar wine spritzer. If you are looking for a more potent drink,you can mix it up with peach liqueur or schnapps recipes using white wine like sangria peach schnapps.

There are many ways to enjoy this delightful treat- straight out of a dessert dish or layered over ice cream or pound cake after it is chilled. The possibilities are endless, so let your imagination run wild!

Substitutions and Variations

One of the best things about the White Wine Peaches recipe is its adaptability. Depending on personal preferences or what you have on hand, there are several substitutions and variations you can try.

Wine Substitutions:

If you don’t have any dry white wine, you could use other white wine varieties such as Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. You could also experiment with a red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, but be aware that it will drastically change the taste of the final product.

Sugar Substitutions:

Confectioners’ sugar can be replaced with granulated sugar if that’s what you have available in your kitchen. If you’re looking for a healthier option, try using honey or maple syrup instead of sugar.

Fruit Substitutions:

While peaches are the star of this recipe, other fruits can be added or substituted to create different flavors. Strawberries or raspberries are excellent options, as their sweetness will complement the dry wine nicely. You could also try adding mango or pineapple for some tropical flair.

Alcohol Variations:

The White Wine Peaches recipe is already quite boozy, but if you’re interested in an extra kick of alcohol, consider adding peach schnapps or triple sec to the mix. Alternatively, skip the wine altogether and make a non-alcoholic version by substituting sparkling peach juice for the white wine.

Overall, don’t be afraid to get creative and switch things up with this recipe! It’s hard to go wrong with juicy peaches and delicious white wine, so feel free to experiment and find your own perfect combination.

When it comes to serving and pairing these delightful white wine peaches, the possibilities are endless. This recipe can be served as a light and refreshing dessert or even as an appetizer for a summer party. The sweetness of the poached peaches perfectly complement the dry white wine.

For those looking to make this recipe a little more exciting, try adding some sparkling peach juice or peach liqueur to create a delicious sangria white wine peach. The fruitiness of these additions will enhance the flavor profile of the dish.

If you’re looking for a classic pairing, I recommend pairing this recipe with a crisp and refreshing dry white wine such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or Pinot Grigio. These wines have a perfect balance of acidity that will cut through the sweetness of the poached peaches.

For those who tend to steer away from sweeter, jammy wines, I suggest trying something with a bit more structure like Cabernet, Pinot Noir or Chianti. These wines compliment the sweetness of fruit beautifully and won’t overpower your dish.

These white wine peaches also make for an excellent base for cocktails! Try blending them with strawberry or other fruit for delightful slushies that’ll almost feel like a healthy dessert. Alternatively use them in white sangria recipes by adding triple sec or peach schnapps, and finish them off with some sparkling water for decadent spritzers.

In conclusion, these white wine peaches offer endless pairing opportunities, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different combinations until you find the perfect match that suits your taste buds best!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

This white wine peaches recipe can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. Simply combine the peaches, sugar, and dry white wine in a bowl, cover it tightly with plastic wrap or a lid, and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours before serving.

If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The poached peaches will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge, but keep in mind that they will become softer and more delicate as they sit.

When reheating the peaches, gently warm them over low heat on the stove or microwave them for about 1 minute. Be careful not to overheat the peaches or they’ll become mushy.

This recipe is not suitable for freezing as the peaches may become mushy when thawed. If you need to make this recipe ahead of time, consider making the sangria separately and chilling it until you’re ready to serve. Then add the sliced chilled peaches right before serving.

Overall, the make-ahead and storing options for this white wine peaches recipe make it a practical choice for hosting social events or family gatherings.

Tips for Perfect Results

When making white wine peaches, there are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind to ensure the best possible result. Here are my top tips for perfecting this delicious recipe:

1. Use a dry white wine: When selecting a white wine for this recipe, choose a dry white wine that is not too sweet. A dry white wine will balance out the sweetness of the peaches and sugar in the recipe.

2. Add some peach nectar or schnapps: To intensify the peach flavor, consider adding some peach nectar or peach schnapps to the recipe. This will give an extra boost of flavor that complements the white wine perfectly.

3. Chill your peaches: For optimal results, chill your peeled and sliced peaches in the fridge for at least an hour before mixing them with the wine. Chilled peaches will hold their shape better and won’t become too soft when mixed with the liquid.

4. Experiment with different wines: While I recommend using a dry white wine for this recipe, feel free to experiment with different types of wines as well. A dry cabernet, pinot noir, or chianti can also complement the sweetness of the fruit.

5. Don’t overmix: When tossing the peaches and wine together, be sure to toss gently and not overmix. Overmixing can cause the peaches to break down too much and create a mushy texture.

Follow these tips, and you’ll have a delicious batch of white wine peaches that everyone will love!


Before concluding this recipe article, I would like to answer a few frequently asked questions about this white wine peaches recipe. Below, I’ve addressed some common queries that might arise during or after making the dish.

What white wine goes with peaches?

As a sommelier, I have noticed that Muscat, Riesling, Albariño, Viognier, warm-climate Chardonnay and South African Chenin Blanc are often associated with a peachy flavor. However, sometimes you may want to stray away from peachy pairings, according to Alexandria Brashears, a fellow sommelier based in Atlanta.

What wine is best for peaches?

For a perfect pairing with fruits, my go-to recommendation would be dry wines such as cabernet, pinot noir, or chianti. While some people may prefer jammy wines, I usually avoid them as they can be overpoweringly sweet. It’s all about personal preference, so feel free to choose whatever suits your taste buds. To add a nice touch, slice the peaches into wedges and mix them with sugar to bring out the flavors.

How many peaches does it take to make 5 gallons of wine?

For those looking to make peach wine, a recipe that calls for 12.5 pounds of peaches, 4.4 gallons of water (which is around 16.5 liters), and 10 pounds of sugar could be a great starting point.

Should I peel peaches for wine?

When it comes to making peach wine, there appears to be a debate about whether or not to keep the peach skin on. The rationale behind leaving the skin on is to enhance the color of the wine. However, others opt to peel the skin off since it does not contribute much juice, and the thickness of the skin may obstruct the water lock.

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the white wine peaches recipe is the perfect summer treat for any wine lover. With its delicious combination of fresh peaches and dry white wine, this dish is sure to impress your guests at your next gathering. It’s a versatile recipe that can be adjusted to suit your taste buds by switching out the type of dry white wine or adding different fruits and spirits.

If you’re looking for a refreshing drink, consider making a peach sangria with this recipe. Or, for something sweeter, try adding peach schnapps or triple sec. And don’t forget about wine spritzers and slushies – both of which can be made using the same basic ingredients.

In short, whether you’re looking to serve this dish as a dessert or a beverage, I recommend giving this recipe a try. And if you’re not typically a fan of dry wines, I recommend trying it with sweeter fruits like strawberries or adding a touch of confectioners’ sugar to complement the sweetness of the peaches.

So go ahead and experiment with different variations until you find the perfect combination that works for you. With so many possibilities, there’s no wrong way to enjoy this delicious dish. Cheers!
