Game Day Finger Foods

  • -

Sundays are family days and by family days we mean gathering at one’s home, piling our plates with food, filling our cups with alcohol, and shouting at the television. We’re watching football of course! It’s important that the team we root for wins (obviously) but it’s nearly as important to have good food and drink to last the afternoon. Each week we try and change up our game day bites but as for our sips, we’re loyal to our tried-and-trues: Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria. That being said, take a peek into what’s on our menus for the next few weeks!

The 7-Layer Dip That’s All Yours
Skip the large serving bowl and serve the 7-layer dip in individual ramekins. No more fighting for the bowl!

Spinach & Artichoke Dip
If you ask us, this is your serving of vegetables, so dip away! We particularly like Alton Brown’s recipe, which you can find here.


Creamy Potato Salad with Bacon
This potato salad beats all others for so many reasons: 1 point for ‘creamy,’ 2 points for ‘with bacon,’ 3 points for the fact that this is Chrissy Teigen’s recipe! Get the recipe from her cookbook, Cravings.

Deviled Eggs
If anyone knows a mean deviled egg, it’s Giada De Laurentiis. Made to perfection, get the recipe by clicking here.

Bacon-Wrapped Onion Rings
The name says it all – we’re sold. Get the recipe by clicking here! Oh, did we mention there’s Sriracha in the recipe? Perfect.

King Sliders
Sliders are the way to go, especially when you’ve got a ton of other food to snack on. The best bread: King’s Hawaiian. Slice each roll in half and give it a light toast, then pile on your typical fixings.

Chicken and Waffles Sliders
Whether you make waffles from scratch and fry your own chicken, or cook frozen waffles and pick up fried chicken from the store, these will be a hit. Don’t forget the maple syrup!


Island Ahi Tuna
Think poke. But loaded with the goods like mango, onion jalapeno, lime, chili, and so much more. We’re going straight to a woman who knows a little thing or two about preparing game day food – Ayesha Curry. Get this recipe in her book, The Seasoned Life.

DIY French Bread Pizza
Put out various pizza toppings like cheese, tomato sauce, olives, mushrooms, onions, pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, peppers, etc. You may need to cook some of these before hand. Then slice open some bread and let each person create his or her own mini pizzas. Pop these in the oven at 350* for about 8 minutes to let the cheese melt and bread crisp up a bit.


Chocolate Dipped Strawberries
Take your basic dark chocolate dipped strawberries to the next game by piping on white frosting or melted white chocolate so that it looks like a football.

That should hold us over for the remainder of the football season but you can bet we’ve got these on hand for all other sports’ viewing parties! We’ve got enough food, but we always make sure to have more than enough Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria! We’re ready to eat, drink, and watch the game!

Wrapped in Love: Wrapping Paper for Stella Rosa Minis

  • -

img_0073_edited

Filled with small but handy trinkets, gag gifts, small tokens, and other goodies, stockings are perhaps our favorite gifts to open on Christmas Day. As great as it would be, a full-sized bottle of Stella Rosa is too large and too heavy for stockings. But luckily enough, our Stella Rosa minis are the most adorable and the perfect size! And this year, we created fun, custom wrapping paper just for these Stella Rosa minis.

Download and print our custom wrapping paper here:pdf-icon

We know wrapping wine bottles are a bit tricky because of the shape of the bottle, but with our custom wrapping paper, it really couldn’t get any easier. Just cut along the designated lines and tie it around the neck of the bottle with a ribbon or bow!

img_0066_edited

Half the fun is wrapping the Stella Rosa bottle and placing it in your loved one’s stockings (while enjoying your own glass of Stella Rosa and all your favorite holiday sweets); the other half is watching your loved ones light up with joy when they open the gift!

Spread the holiday cheer by sharing your Stella Rosa holiday photos with us on Instagram using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your caption. The Minis are available in the Rosso, Pink, Moscato, Prosecco, Berry, and Peach flavors, and can be purchased at San Antonio Winery in-store. You can also contact your local retailer to check if they’re in stock.

From us at Stella Rosa, we wish you a wonderful Stella Rosa-filled holiday season!

movemadness

The air is crisp outside so we’ve haven’t been doing much except cozying in. It’s the happiest time of the year and if we could drag on the cheer and merriment any longer, we would… And we can! To us, there’s nothing wrong with watching holiday films after the holidays are over. It’s like the Ghost of Christmas Past. So won’t you join us? You bring the popcorn, we’ll open the Stella Rosa – we’ve got 12 holiday movie favorites and classics to get through!

1. Film: Home Alone | Drink: Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti
Hopefully you won’t be home alone this holiday; this is a must-watch holiday movie that keeps delivering the laughs. The must-have Moscato D’Asti is for your extra enjoyment!

2. Film: Elf | Drink: Stella Rosa Platinum
This elf would probably enjoy the green apple and vanilla flavors of Stella Rosa Platinum; enjoy his favorite wine pick as he wrecks havoc all over the Big Apple.

stellarossomini

3. Film: It’s a Wonderful Life | Drink: Love, Stella (cocktail)
Bring color to a classic black and white tale with a new twist on a classic wine. Stella Rosa Rosso is a traditional red berry flavored wine that when poured over ice and blood orange slices, it radiates beautiful color and flare. Add a rosemary sprig for a Christmas decorative garnish.

4. Film: A Christmas Story | Drink: Stella Rosa Peach
Little Ralphie keeps being told that BB guns are dangerously fun, much like Stella Rosa Peach is. Full of sparkly peach and sweet honey, have a few bottles handy to share with company.

5. Film: Serendipity | Drink: Stella Rosa Pink
Fun, flirty, and young – 3 words that describe both Serendipity and Stella Rosa Pink. Enjoy this heart-warming story and heart-pleasing wine and create sweet holiday memories with your special someone.

7. Film: Love Actually | Drink: Stella Rosa Imperiale Brachetto
Love is in the air! Enjoy this feel-good movie with a loved one while sharing Stella Rosa Imperiale Brachetto, an Italian wine wrapped in raspberries and rose petals. It’s sure to bring the romance alive.

8. Film: The Nightmare Before Christmas | Drink: Stella Rosa Black
Jack Skellington would definitely choose Stella Rosa Black for its dark and mysterious qualities that are enjoyable year-round (bright and shiny holidays aren’t for everybody). Sip your way through Christmastown for the ultimate eerily fun experience.

9. Film: The Holiday | Drink: Stella Spice (cocktail)
Making the right choice is about taking a chance and the women in The Holiday do just that. Don’t miss out on finding your Mr. or Mrs. Right to spice up your holiday season – start with our Stella Spice cocktail!

polarexpress_stellaberry

10. Film: The Polar Express | Drink: Stella Rosa Berry
Joyful train rides to the North Pole and discovering the wonders of life are the perfect ways to describe Stella Rosa Berry, whose semi-sparkling wild berries characteristics pairs perfectly with the bubbly adventures of The Polar Express.

img_7830

11. Film: Charlie Brown Christmas | Drink: Hot Cocoa (cocktail)
A Charlie Brown Christmas is a classic we grew up with – tales filled with hope, happiness, and cheer create a warm holiday recipe. The best drink to pair with that is none other than another classic – hot chocolate! Add some Stella Red to our Hot Cocoa recipe for that adults version you’ve been longing for.

12. Film: The Grinch | Drink: The Grinch (cocktail)
The Grinch is sour, sweet, and green. We’re talking about the movie character and this holiday drink to enjoy while you’re watching the movie! In a shaker, combine 2.5 oz. of Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti, ice, 1 oz. Midori melon liquor, 1 oz. vodka, and 1 oz. lemon juice. Strain into a glass, top with Stella Rosa Imperiale Prosecco, and garnish with a lemon slice. Enjoy!

Feeling Thankful…And Hungry!

  • -

moscatopie

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. It’s that special time of the year we get a break from our hectic schedules and can reconnect with friends and family while devouring our favorite comfort foods.

Although we love traditional favorites, the best Thanksgiving menu includes both classic family recipes and dishes with a modern twist. Feast your eyes on some of these Thanksgiving food and wine pairings featuring Maddalena Wines, San Simeon Wines, Stella Rosa, and Bodega Sangria!

Stuffing & Maddalena Pinot Grigio

A light white wine like Maddalena Pinot Grigio has the perfect flavor profile to elevate the rich and savory flavors in a buttery stuffing, allowing the strong array of spices and herbs to come through. When pairing wine with foods, it’s important to make sure that the flavors complement each other. Stuffing has such a distinct flavor that when selecting a wine to pair with it, we wanted to choose a wine with a delicate flavor, making Maddalena Pinot Grigio the perfect fit.

Classic Mashed Potatoes & Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose

moscatomash2

This pairing had us at mashed potatoes! But to add some finesse to our childhood favorite, we added Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose and fell in love all over again! Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose gives some pep to the mashed potatoes’ step with its notes of apricots and wildflower. The fizz in Imperiale Moscato Rose left us wanting more!

Pecan Sweet Potato Casserole & San Simeon Chardonnay

The bright fruit flavors of San Simeon Chardonnay pairs nicely with creamy sweet potato casserole. We made a salted pecan crust for our sweet potato casserole, bringing out even more of the toasty vanilla flavors in the wine.

Truffled Mac and Cheese & Stella Rosa Rosso

A hearty dish like Truffled Mac & Cheese requires a sturdy, distinct wine to pair with. And that perfect wine is Stella Rosa Rosso. It brightens up the nutty truffle flavors and mellows out the zingy cheesy goodness.

Glazed Maple Carrots & Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti

The most delicious and easiest way we like to eat our veggies is with Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti! We used fresh carrots and marinated them in maple syrup and cinnamon until they were soft. Moscato D’Asti has notes of honey, pear, and apricot, creating a nectarous flavor combination.

Buttermilk Cornbread & Maddalena Muscat Canelli

The deliciousness of crumbly buttermilk cornbread paired with semi-sweet Maddalena Muscat Canelli is a flavor we are thankful for!  The mild sweetness of the cornbread and wine creates a smooth, delicious, and refreshing fusion of flavors.

Corn Pudding & Bodega Sangria

We couldn’t leave Bodega Sangria out of the Thanksgiving mix. Bodega Sangria cut the hearty creaminess of the corn pudding nicely, leaving room for our palate to taste our favorite sangria that bursts with notes of fresh citrus fruit and cinnamon.

Pumpkin Pie & Stella Rosa Peach

stellapeach

Our Thanksgiving dinner was so delicious, we almost thought of skipping dessert, but we just couldn’t bring ourselves to leave out the classic Thanksgiving indulgence, pumpkin pie! When selecting a wine to pair with it, we began thinking of the robust pumpkin filling on the bed of flakey, buttery crust. Stella Rosa Peach brought out the nutty and slightly sweet flavors of the pumpkin and paired nicely with the creamy whipped topping.

Apple Pie & Stella Rosa Platinum

Okay, we know we already had pumpkin pie, but we figured, what’s Thanksgiving without apple pie!? And Thanksgiving is the time to indulge in our favorite foods, so we added one last pairing to our Thanksgiving menu: Apple Pie and Stella Rosa Platinum! Stella Rosa Platinum has a semi-sweet taste and wraps your palate in luscious notes of green apple and vanilla, the perfect complement for a slice of apple pie.

We have a lot to be thankful for, but most of all, we are thankful for all of you, our supporters! And because we are so thankful, we are giving away online promo codes for our wine! Follow Maddalena Wines, San Simeon Wines, Stella Rosa, and Bodega Sangria on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to be the first to know about November and December’s giveaways and holiday specials!
