These Wine Poached Berries with Mascarpone Cream are an easy but impressive dessert perfect for any occasion. This recipe literally just takes 10 minutes to prep!
Hey you guys… Happy Saturday!! It is a long weekend for many of us.
We’re very excited because my mom is arriving this upcoming Monday. She is going to stay with us for three months and we couldn’t be happier. When you live so far away from family you really appreciate any opportunity you have to be with them. For my two youngest kids, Matthew and Victoria, this is going to be a whole new experience. They don’t really know how is having grandma. I mean we video-call her all the time but it’s not the same. Plus, this also is going to be a great opportunity for them to practice their Spanish.
I’m sure we are going to be cooking a lot together so expect to see many Venezuelan traditional dishes in the near future. I usually don’t want anyone in my kitchen when I’m cooking, just because it’s so tiny, but I can make an exception for her.
If you want to kick off this long weekend with a bang you need to try this Wine Poached Berries with Mascarpone Cream!!!
This delicious and indulging dessert is literally ready in just 10 minutes! Yeap… It’s a impressive but fast dessert. The berries are gently cooked in red wine, which gives them an elegant and rich flavor.
For this recipe I used Woodbridge Cabernet Merlot. This wine combines some of the best attributes of both varietals, resulting in a delicious, smooth, full-bodied blend. Merlot’s lush, plummy aromas and silky black cherry flavors complement the Cabernet’s structure, with hints of vanilla oak and mocha adding just a bit of spice. Do I need to say something else? Simply amazing!!

The warm berries and syrup are great alone—without the mascarpone cream—or with whipped cream. I cannot stop thinking about how many different ways we can use this berries. The obvious way would be over pancakes or waffles. But if you want to start thinking about the holidays coming up… what about over vanilla ice cream for a bloody dessert for Halloween? or even as a sauce to pair with your turkey on Thanksgiving!!
Any way you decided to serve them you’re going to want to lick the bowl!!
- 1 cup Woodbridge Cabernet Merlot
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups mixed berries
- Mascarpone Cream:
- 1//2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
- 2 1/2 tablespoons honey
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the wine, and sugar. Bring to a simmer. Add the berries and bring back to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the berries are just tender, about 5 - 8 minutes. Pour into another bowl so the berries don't overcook.
- Whip the cream with a electric mixer in a cold bowl until fairly thick. Stop the mixer and add mascarpone cheese; continue whipping until thick and peaks form. Add honey and mix until incorporated.
- Serve the warm berries and syrup in bowls or jars, topped with a large dollop of the mascarpone cream.
