Wine of the Weekend

Mrs. Beachley’s Mulled Wine

Halloween is over, so we are now ramping up for the holiday season, aren’t we? Orange and black are being traded in for red and green, and rain is turning to snow – well, some parts of the province didn’t have to wait for Halloween to be over for that part. This week’s wine is a must for making cold nights cozy and for ramping up the holiday cheer. Mrs. Beachley’s Mulled Wine is a delightful blend of red wine and spices perfect for sitting by the fire or gazing through a frosted window. Bring on the holidays!

Tasting Notes: Made from a secret recipe of Californian red wines and Victorian spices, Mrs. Beachley’s blends the intensity of rich reds with the sweet spices of your favourite holiday desserts. Plum, cherry, citrus peel, nutmeg, vanilla and cinnamon are only a few of the flavour highlights.

Enjoy With: Sweet and spicy desserts like Christmas cake or gingerbread, great with strong cheeses, and perfect when warmed up and shared with friends and family.

Style: A sweet, full-bodied, fruity and spicy red wine.

Terroir/Region: Mulled wine is a tradition that dates back to the Romans heating and spicing their wines and the practice expanded with the empire. Several countries have continued the tradition: German Glühwein, Nordic Glögg, and British Mulled Wines are perfect examples. The spices used have varied by region, but most European countries have embraced a warmed spiced wine as a centuries old tradition to get them through long winter evenings.

Producer: Mrs. Beachley’s Mulled Wine is made by WX Brands in California. Using its well-established relationships with local growers and specializing in custom wines, WX makes this annual favourite by sourcing ripe, rich grapes to turn into the base wine, then blending in the holiday spices. The recipe remains a secret, and it’s one definitely worth keeping!

Availability: Mrs. Beachley’s Mulled Wine is only around for the holidays so get it before it’s gone and make sure to stock up for all those cold nights that come after January 1st!
