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.

Stellabrate Cinco de Mayo

  • -

We’re big fans of Mexican food so when Cinco de Mayo rolls around we get really excited planning out our food and drink options. Today we’re getting you ready for your Cinco de Mayo celebrations and turning them into stellabrations. If tequila isn’t really your thing, don’t worry because we’re pairing your favorite Stella Rosa wines and sister brand Bodega Sangria with our top food picks for the big fiesta.

First up, we’re teaming up with our sister brand, Bodega Sangria and making a fun and festive sangria bar because ice-cold, fresh and fruity sangria goes hand in hand with Cinco de Mayo festivities. Top your drink with plenty of fruits and ice and get ready to dig in.

Second up, the best party food on the planet – nachos. You can’t go wrong with this snack food. It goes with everything and pairs perfectly with Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria wines. Have fun with this one. Add all your favorite toppings and keep in mind, bigger is actually better in this case. Have enough space to lay out all the chips and toppings and you’ve got yourself the perfect dish to feed a large crowd.

Stock up on chips, salsa, and guacamole because you’re all set to stellabrate with Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria wines (purchase Bodega Sangria here). Share with us all your Cinco de Mayo celebrations by tagging us in your photos on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate.

Purchase Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria at your local retailer or shop online from San Antonio Winery.

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.

The Slice Is Right!

  • -

Pizza is life. *Mic drop*

Anyone who disagrees is not living right – they must have a pizza their soul missing and we hope they find it very soon.

For the rest of us right-minded individuals: if there is any way that the pizza-indulging experience can get any better, it would be by having some Stella Rosa wine to drink on the side. So what if pizza and wine together isn’t the norm? It’s delicious, it’s casual, it’s got no frills, and it’s going to make the others salivate in jealousy and awe.

*Drum roll please*
We present to you – the ultimate guide to pairing Stella Rosa wine and your favorite pizzas:

Runner-up pairings: Mushroom & onion pizza with Stella Rosa Rosso, Margherita Pizza also with Stella Rosa Rosso, and BBQ Pizza with Stella Rosa Brachetto.

Stella Rosa wines can be purchased at your local stores or at San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles, Ontario, and Paso Robles. Online purchases of Stella Rosa wines are also an option – just go to SanAntonioWinery.com.

Now that you’ve got your wine, put in that call for pizza delivery! Share your pizza party photos with us on Instagram and Twitter with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate.

Host a Backyard Movie Night

  • -

Hosting a movie night shouldn’t be challenging as long as you have the right essentials to make it a great time. With that said, the perfect party will have plenty of popcorn, desserts, and lots and lots of Stella Rosa wine. Here’s everything you need to throw the coolest backyard movie night this season that will work well into the summer.

1. Backyard – This one’s a given. Make sure you have plenty of space to lay your blankets and pillows out, preferably near a white wall (white sheet will work too).
2. Projector – If you don’t already have one, ask a buddy to loan you one for the night, or check Amazon or Craigslist for good deals. If these aren’t the best options for you, Google search some places near you that rent them out for a day for a minimal fee.
3. Pick a flick – Know your audience and choose a movie that everyone can enjoy. You really can’t go wrong with comedies!
4. All the treats – Probably the most important one because what’s a movie night without treats? A boring one that we would definitely pass on, that’s for sure!

Since we’re all about snacks, make sure you fill your set up with Stella Rosa wines – we went with Stella Minis and added straws to make things simple. Don’t skip the sweet and savory combos of popcorn and desserts. A variety of flavors will give your guests plenty of options.

Keep an ice bucket on hand to keep your wine nice and cold. Refill your bar cart as the supplies start to run low, your guests will appreciate it. You’re all set to host a fun filled movie night with Stella Rosa wines!

Find Stella Rosa wines at your local retailer or shop online or in-store from San Antonio Winery.

Macarons and Stella Rosa Wine are the Perfect Duo

  • -

If you know Stella Rosa, you know our wines are bursting with flavor. They’re lightly sparkling and refreshingly sweet, just the way we like it. We’re also particular about our desserts, because what makes wine taste even better? When it’s paired with something equally delicious!

Macarons are not only delicious in every bite, but they also come in an array of flavors. We paired our award-winning Moscato Rosé these delicate treats and it is an experience you won’t want to pass up.


Stella Rosa wine and macarons also make for a beautiful display the next time you’re hosting friends and family at your place. Stella Minis are the perfect size for these handheld desserts, making it the cutest mid-afternoon or after dinner ensemble.

The wait is over – your guide to pairing those undeniable Girl Scout Cookies with your favorite Stella Rosa Wines is here! As if one or the other on their own wasn’t addicting enough… Try out our pairing recommendations below – consider it the 21+ way to enjoy Girl Scout Cookies.

Lemonades & Stella Rosa Moscato d’Asti, on the rocks

A zesty lemon shortbread cookie and a glass of Stella Rosa Moscato d’Asti on the rocks is picturesque of a warm Summer beach day. Oh we long for those days…

Thin Mints & Stella Rosa Rosso, chilled

Thin Mints are neither too chocolate-y nor too minty. They’re just right. Just like how Stella Rosa Rosso, chilled, is just right.

Trefoils & Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose

We hate to love shortbread cookies because of their buttery richness. Wash each bite down with a sip of Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato Rose and suddenly you won’t feel so guilty anymore!

Savannah Smiles & Stella Rosa Imperiale Prosecco

Savannah Smiles cookies are lemon-flavored and coated in powdered sugar. They’re melt-in-your-mouth goodness and are enhanced even more with Stella Rosa Imperiale Prosecco.

Toffee Tastic & Stella Rosa Peach

Sweet, buttery and sprinkled with tiny bits of toffee, Toffee Tastic cookies and Stella Rosa Peach go quite well together; it’s a delightful surprise.

Cranberry Citrus Crisps & Stella Rosa Imperiale Orange Moscato

It’s in the name – the light orange finish of Stella Rosa Imperiale Orange Moscato will complement the cookie’s citrus-y kick. Party in your mouth!

Caramel Delites/ Samoas & Stella Rosa Imperiale Brachetto

These chewy cookies are all about caramel, chocolate, and coconut – that’s a lot of flavor. The best Stella Rosa to stand up to all those flavors? Stella Rosa Imperiale Brachetto.

Peanut Butter Patties/ Tagalongs & Stella Rosa Black, chilled

Enjoy a glass of chilled Stella Rosa Black. This wine’s pronounced blackberry and blueberry flavors will go great with these peanut butter cookies. It’s almost like a peanut butter and berry jelly combo!

Do-Si-Dos & Stella Rosa Platinum

Oatmeal on the outside, creamy peanut butter on the inside. Do the Do-Si-Do with Stella Rosa Platinum and discover a newfound joy.

We know what you’re thinking – “WOW.” Yeah, Stella Rosa wine and Girl Scout cookies go together dangerously well. So with that said, enjoy!
