Wrapped in Love: Wrapping Paper for Stella Rosa Minis

  • -

img_0073_edited

Filled with small but handy trinkets, gag gifts, small tokens, and other goodies, stockings are perhaps our favorite gifts to open on Christmas Day. As great as it would be, a full-sized bottle of Stella Rosa is too large and too heavy for stockings. But luckily enough, our Stella Rosa minis are the most adorable and the perfect size! And this year, we created fun, custom wrapping paper just for these Stella Rosa minis.

Download and print our custom wrapping paper here:pdf-icon

We know wrapping wine bottles are a bit tricky because of the shape of the bottle, but with our custom wrapping paper, it really couldn’t get any easier. Just cut along the designated lines and tie it around the neck of the bottle with a ribbon or bow!

img_0066_edited

Half the fun is wrapping the Stella Rosa bottle and placing it in your loved one’s stockings (while enjoying your own glass of Stella Rosa and all your favorite holiday sweets); the other half is watching your loved ones light up with joy when they open the gift!

Spread the holiday cheer by sharing your Stella Rosa holiday photos with us on Instagram using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your caption. The Minis are available in the Rosso, Pink, Moscato, Prosecco, Berry, and Peach flavors, and can be purchased at San Antonio Winery in-store. You can also contact your local retailer to check if they’re in stock.

From us at Stella Rosa, we wish you a wonderful Stella Rosa-filled holiday season!

Moscato In A Bowl? The Next Best Thing To Moscato D’Asti In A Glass

  • -

Moscato-Dasti-Recipes_1

With the colder weather, it’s easy to pass up on the cold wine option. Moscato d’Asti is a delicious semi-sweet wine made from the Moscato di Canelli grape in Italy. It is sweet, but not overly sweet, and has the perfect amount of bubbles. This wine is the perfect aperitif and pairs great with light meals, but today, we’re going to share with you some dishes that you can include the delicious wine into.

Here is the menu:

As an aperitif, a glass of Moscato d’Asti.

Italian wedding soup with meatballs and pepe noodles

For our main course, pearl barley soup (made with a splash of Moscato d’Asti). The simplicity of the barley and vegetable soup with the hint of flavor from the Moscato d’Asti is perfection in a bowl, and warms up any heart on a cold day.

About Dry Wines And Food Pairings

  • -

Dry-Wines_2

Do you really know what a dry wine is? What makes a dry wine dry?

A dry wine is a wine that has no residual sugar; a dry wine is not sweet. During the fermentation process, yeast consumes the sugars of the juice. In making sweet wines like Stella Rosa wines, for example, the fermentation process stops before the yeast consumes all the sugars. In making dry wines, the fermentation process runs until all the sugars are gone.

What a curious Summer it has been for us here in Southern California. Yeah we’re spoiled with like, 300 days of sun each year and we freak out when the temperature drops below 70 and the rain comes down on us, which it has quite a lot this Summer (though unfortunately not nearly enough to alleviate our drought problem). But now that we’re finally getting some 90+ degree weather, we’re desperate for some ice cold drinks. Make that ice cold cocktails, because alcohol makes everything better.
