Tis’ the season for sweets! And since wine is always in season, it’s only fitting that this month we bring you a desserts and wine pairing guide to get you through those holiday cravings. Follow along as we pair some of our holiday favorite with some of our favorite Stella Rosa wines.


Brownies
– Edge pieces only please! Freshly baked fudge walnut brownies – Fudgy in the middle and chewy and delicious on the outside sure pair well with Stella Rosa Moscato d’Asti’s refreshing tastes of peach and nectarine.

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.

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 makes the best red sweet wine, not unlike regular wine, is the balance between a sweet, full, grape taste and level of acidity. The acid gives that little zest or sparkle you taste when you finish off a good semi-sweet red wine.
