At Home With Our Family - Debbie’s Bolognese - Home & Family

Debbie is making her famous Bolognese sauce to enjoy while watching Christmas in July movies! She’s pairing it with a bottle of new Hallmark Channel Wine – what goes better with dinner and a Hallmark Channel Original Movie than a glass of Jingle Cabernet or Joy Sauvignon Blanc!? You can even serve them in Hallmark Channel glasses!

The wine and glasses make perfect gifts! To order the wine visit and you can find the glasses at or your local Gold Crown Store.
