Better than your average ice cream float! With all this carnival excitement, we’re on an all-time sugar high and we have these Stella Rosa ice cream floats to thank. You heard us right, we’ve taken your favorite childhood indulgence and upped the ante by adding your favorite summer wines!

Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream FTW! We chose these classic flavors and mixed and matched them with Stella Black and Platinum, but there’s really no wrong choice when pairing ice cream and Stella Rosa wines, so have fun with this one!

Set up an ice cream float table with all the fixings: ice cream and Stella Rosa Black and Platinum aluminums (it’s hot out, so make sure to keep these on ice), whipped cream, sprinkles, Oreos, and gummy bears – because who doesn’t love gummy bears?!

We’re sure these floats will be a hit, so make sure you have enough sweets for all!

Not sure where to find Stella Rosa? No worries – check out our online store locator to find a retailer near you or shop online or in-store at San Antonio Winery.

Stellabrate National Candy Month with Stella Rosa Candy!

  • -

Hope you don’t have a dentist appointment anytime soon because June is National Candy Month! It’s like Halloween but instead of 1 night of sweets, you get 30 full days! This month, rather than just aimlessly feeding your sweet tooth with store-bought, pre-wrapped goodies, challenge yourself to make your own candies from scratch. If you need another boost of inspiration, choose recipes that will leave you with Stella Rosa wine-infused confectionery. Not that you need reminding, but Stella Rosa makes everything better.

Here are just a handful of ways to Stellabrate National Candy Month to get you started! Download all the recipes mentioned below, here:

Start the month with some Stella Rosa Black Lollipops. Tell us, how many licks does it take for you to get to the center?

Next, try your hand at making red wine truffles with Stella Rosa Red or Rosso. There is no secret to making a good truffle – they’re actually much easier to make than most people think!

Pick up some gummy bear molds (or any other shape molds) so you can create a beautiful assortment of Champagne gummies! Our favorite sparkling wines to use here are the Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose, Brachetto, and Prosecco, but you’ll still need just a little bit of food coloring to get the right color.

If you’re having a small get together (or just a night to treat yourself) and would like to offer Stella Rosa and chocolate pairing options, go for it! You have our recommendations, but you’re still encouraged to try your own pairings too.

You’re going to need something to wash all this candy down, and what’s a better choice of drink than a Stella Rosa-based libation? Call it the Stella Rosa Cotton Candy cocktail.

Tell us what you think and share your own Stella Rosa-infused candies and pairings! Vibe with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and hashtag your photos with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate for a chance to be featured.

DIY Time: Drink Wine, Give Your Succulents A Home

  • -

Stella Rosa is trendy, succulents are trendy, and DIY crafts are trendy. So, here’s a fun idea: how about repurposing your wine corks to create mini planters for succulents? They’re simply adorable, not to mention easy to put together. Plus, it gives you extra reason (not that you need one) to finish off another bottle of Stella Rosa – you need the cork!

Materials:
• Wine corks
• Kitchen paring knife or pocket knife
• Magnets
• Hot glue gun
• Soil
• Succulents

Let’s get crafty:
1. Drink Stella Rosa wine and collect the corks.
2. Lay out a piece of paper, cardboard, or towel to work over. This makes the cleanup process much easier and faster.
3. Use a kitchen paring knife or a pocket knife to carve out a hole in the cork. Do this by turning the knife in a circular motion. The hole should go about halfway down the cork.
4. Glue magnets to the corks.
5. Fill corks with soil.
6. Add succulent plants. Add a little more soil and pack it down.
7. Drizzle with a little bit of water.

That’s it! Now you’re free to put your new wine cork succulents onto the fridge, or wherever you had in mind, though most ideal locations would be near a window so it gets some natural light. Then sprinkle or spritz it with some water 1-2 times per week. They’re extremely low maintenance!

If you’re going to forge ahead with this DIY project (and we hope you do), keep us in-the-know on social media by following us on Instagram and Twitter and using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate on your photos.

Any wine lover knows that spilling semi-sweet sparkling red wine is almost like a heart attack.

For semi-sweet sparkling red wine lovers, it’s as bad as anything can get. Now, not only do you no longer have any red wine to drink, but now you are tasked with figuring out how to remove those red wine stains! Thankfully, we’ve got some tips that will help with the pains of semi-sweet sparkling red wine stains.

Salt

Using salt to remove semi-sweet sparkling red wine stains is especially good on carpets and rugs. First, blot out as much wine from the stain area as possible using a paper towel. Then, pour salt over the stain, completely covering it. The salt will begin soaking up some of the stain. Then, vacuum to clean up the salt!
