Holiday Mulled Wine

Mulled wine might be the perfect cold weather comfort drink.  It's warm and spiced the way a good hot cider is, but with the added flavor complexity that you can only get from really good wine.  The best part is, it's incredibly easy to make.


1 Bottle Shorty’s Bistro Red Wine

1/3 of a Bottle Limited Reserve Port

3/4 of a Cup Brown sugar                       

2 Sticks of Cinnamon               

3-4 Cloves                                   

2 Orange Wedges                   

1 Pinch of Allspice                             

1/2 Pinch of Nutmeg                                 

Combine all ingredients in large crockpot, turn to medium or low heat, and heat for at least one hour.  Remove the orange wedges before serving, and enjoy.  If you aren't serving that day, be sure to strain spices before storing. Be sure to refrigerate, but don't freeze.

Previously a wine club exclusive, our Castelletto Sangiovese is now available to everyone for tasting and for purchase.

2013 Dolcetto (Red) Award Winning Wine!Retail Price: $35 per bottle, Wine Club Price $28 This award winning wine has two medals - a bronze at the Toast of the Coast Wine Competition, and a silver at the Riverside International Wine Competition! The table wine that’s fit for a Queen, a bottle of Dolcetto was given as a gift to Queen Anne of England as coronation gift. This is Mount Palomar’s first and limited release of Dolcetto, a wonderfully deep varietal from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy. Though this wine can benefit from extended bottle aging, the tradition is to bottle it earlier than other reds to preserve the bold fruit essence.  The nose is full with scents of cherry, blackberry and hints of rose, and it has a bright taste with currants and blackberry balanced by a firm tannin structure.
