sliders recipe
Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi

These delicious grilled portobello mushroom “burgers” are made by sandwiching two portobellos together with cheese and Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce onions!

Pair With: Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon


  • 6 large garlic cloves

  • 2 medium red onions, thinly sliced

  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus ½ cup olive oil for the dressing

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce

  • 1 tablespoons clover honey

  • 8 medium Portobello mushrooms

  • 10 ounces whole milk mozzarella cheese, cut into 12 slices

  • ½ cup finely grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the grill. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  2. Roast the garlic: In a small bowl, toss the garlic cloves and onions with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and salt. Spread the onions on one end of a baking sheet and the garlic on the other. Place in the tray in the center of the oven. Cook until tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 20-25 minutes.

  3. Make the dressing: “Mash” the garlic cloves and whisk them vigorously together with the balsamic vinegar, Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce, honey and ½ a cup of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Grill the mushrooms: In a medium bowl, toss the mushrooms in the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt. Place them, stem side up, on the hottest part of the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes, you may see liquid starting to emerge from the stem area. Turn on their second side and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Transfer them to a tray and place in the center of the oven. Cook for an additional 12-15 minutes until they are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife.

  5. Make the sliders: Arrange four mushrooms, stem side up, on a baking sheet. Top each with 3 slices of the mozzarella cheese and some of the cooked onions. Season with salt. “Sandwich” the cheese by topping each with another mushroom. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Place the tray in the center of the oven and bake until the cheese melts, 5-8 minutes. Remove from the oven, slice in half and drizzle with the dressing.

Oven-Baked Woodbridge Wine Chicken Wings

The chicken is brushed with butter and paprika then baked. The Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce is boiled, reduced, tweaked and then used as a glaze over the chicken after it is finished baking. YUM!

Pair With: Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

Servings = 4-6


  • 2 cups Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon

  • ¼ cup clover honey

  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar

  • 3 tablespoons Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce

  • ½ cup sherry vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 scallions, white and green parts both, cut into thin rounds

  • 1 pound (about 16 pieces) chicken wings

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 2 teaspoons hot paprika

  • The juice from 1 large lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  2. Make the honey glaze: In a large skillet, reduce the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon over medium heat until there is only about ¼ cup liquid. Pour the wine into a medium bowl to cool. In the same skillet, bring the honey, garlic, dark brown sugar and Woodbridge Wine ‘Cue Sauce to a simmer. When it starts to foam and turn light brown, remove the skillet from the heat and pour in the sherry vinegar. Return the skillet to the heat and allow it to simmer until it becomes like a light glaze, 12-15 minutes. Stir in the black pepper and scallions and pour it over the red wine in the bowl. Whisk to blend. Taste for seasoning.

  3. Prepare and cook the chicken wings: Cut each chicken wing at each joint so each wing is cut into 3 parts. You will have 36 pieces including the wing tips. Season them with salt. In a small saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the paprika. Put the wings on a sheet pan and brush them with the melted butter mixture. Bake them for 5-8 minutes. Turn them on their second side and brush with the remaining butter mixture. Then, put the tray under the broiler and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes or until fully cooked.

  4. Finish the dish: Toss the chicken wings in the honey red wine glaze and squeeze the lemon juice over them.
