This past weekend we held the first wine tasting event we ever held in January and it went very well. We invited people to catch a break from the bitter cold of the Winter by enjoying a FREE wine tasting event at Adirondack Winery! We were delighted at the turnout we had, especially on Saturday! Thanks to all who came!
For this event, we prepared four of our wines (two reds and two whites) with mulling spices in crock pots, which filled the winery with irresistable warm spice aromas. We also hand-made chocolate chip, sugar and gingersnap cookies to go along with the mulled wines and people seemed to really enjoy it.
Below is our mulled wines that we did w/ pairing suggestions…I’ve also posted the mulled wine recipes we borrowed because I thought people would enjoy having them.
Prepare for your friends one evening, or enjoy mulled wine by the fire after you’ve been skiing or sledding, etc….
