Sugar cookies – Who doesn’t love fall shaped cookies?! We are all about sugar cookies especially and enjoying them with Stella Rosa Imperiale Brachetto. Lightly sparkling and sweet makes this the perfect cookie companion.

Cheesecake – We like our desserts classic, creamy, and rich, so there’s no surprise that we love a good cheesecake to satisfy our sweet tooth. Pair it with our delicate and crisp Stella Rosa Pink for a sparkling good time.

We’re at the end of August and you don’t want to miss the chance to partake in the national celebration of the one thing that’s just as pleasurable as wine – romance. August is National #RomanceAwarenessMonth. Sometimes we need a reminder to treat that special someone a little extra special. Wine has always been part of the language of romance and our wine in fact originates from the land of romance, Italy.

Why DIY? Because Sometimes You Have To

Sweet-Red-Wine_1

Not all of us are crafty or even want to be, so DIY isn’t our thang but if it means the difference between saving your furniture or having to buy a new couch…well you’ll want to arm yourself with these handy DIY tips.

It’s the curse of the white fabric. After many unpleasant experiences of walking around half the day sporting unwanted sweet red wine stains and asking people for Tide pens, I’ve concluded white is a magnet for stains. Sadly, it’s not just limited to shirts either; we must be cautioned around all white fabrics. The latest victim, my friend’s brand new pristine white linen couch, yikes is right. Nothing puts a halt on the red wine and dining fun like a spilt drink.

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.
