Game Day Finger Foods

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!

10 Reasons to be Thankful for Stella Rosa Wine

Picnicking with Stella Babies

  • -


We’re ready for the cooler temps and plan to take full advantage of the season change.  Get outside and enjoy the weather and company of your friends and family and host a fun autumn picnic with Stella Rosa Babies!

Here are a few tips to help you step up your picnic game:

  1. Pack enough Stella Babies to go around. Your friends will not be happy with you if there isn’t enough Stella Rosa to sip on, so make sure you pack the ice bucket and chill enough of these babies!
  2. Snacks, snacks, and more snacks.  If there’s one thing we love it’s wine, but food is a close second, so don’t forget the yummy that will pair well with the delicious flavors of Stella Rosso, Berry, Pink, Moscato, and Prosecco.
  3. Location, Location, Location. Nothing will ruin the moment more than not having the right picnic spot, so choose wisely.  Find a park that isn’t close to the highway so the loud traffic noises don’t ruin your catch up time with your friends.  Make sure to check the weather and choose a day that isn’t too cold, too hot, or forecasted to rain.
  4. Don’t forget the essentials. Corkscrew, blanket, food and Stella Rosa are musts, but a small portable speaker to play your favorite music is always a good idea too.


Follow these simple steps and you’re well on your way to hosting the perfect fall picnic.  Find Stella Rosa at your local retailer or shop online or in-store from San Antonio Winery.

Wine On The Go

  • 2


Stella Rosa’s newest and most convenient way to enjoy refreshing ice cold wine on the go is the 8.5 oz. aluminum single serving bottles. The smaller size bottle allows the wine to become colder faster than a full-size bottle and has a screw-off top, making it the perfect wine on the go! It’s perfect for parties and weekend adventures.

Go and pick up the single serving size aluminum bottles in Black or Platinum flavors for your next party and look for new Stella Rosa wine flavors to be introduced in the aluminum single serving bottles at San Antonio Winery or your local retailer. Wine on the go has never been so easy or so fun!

Share your Stella Rosa ‘wine on the go’ picture on Instagram using #GoStellaRosa and you may be featured on the official Stella Rosa Instagram page! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube for special offers, recipes and the newest Stella Rosa info!

Expect The Unexpected With A Different Breed of Red Wine

  • -


At Stella Rosa, we are all about being bold, innovative and standing out from the crowd. This belief started nearly 15 years ago when we introduced our delicious and refreshing semi-sweet sparkling wine to the world, proving that wine can be fun, unique and sexy. Since then, we have introduced a total of 10 amazing flavors to our L’Originale lineup as well as six Imperiale champagne-style wines. The Stella Rosa wine collection continues to grow and has won multiple gold medal awards.

Although Stella Rosa Rosso is known as the classic Stella Rosa flavor, it’s anything but an ordinary red wine. In the past, red wines were only known to be dry and flat, but the Rosso changed all of that. Stella Rosa Rosso is a lightly sparkling and sweet red wine, bursting with flavors of ripe strawberry and red berry. It is best served chilled and goes with savory cheese, spicy Italian cuisine, or decadent chocolate deserts. Stella Rosa Rosso can even be enjoyed all by itself. The Rosso is in a class of its own, standing out against ordinary red wines.

What’s best is that Stella Rosa Rosso is available at stores nationwide or at San Antonio Winery so you can enjoy the unique taste of Rosso sweet red wine today. So instead of getting ordinary red wine, dare to be different and grab a bottle of Stella Rosa Rosso. Let us know how much you love Stella Rosa Rosso by sharing a photo on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter page, #StellaRosa. Visit our new site, for more info.

We’re at the end of August and you don’t want to miss the chance to partake in the national celebration of the one thing that’s just as pleasurable as wine – romance. August is National #RomanceAwarenessMonth. Sometimes we need a reminder to treat that special someone a little extra special. Wine has always been part of the language of romance and our wine in fact originates from the land of romance, Italy.

Why DIY? Because Sometimes You Have To

  • -


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.

Moms deserve recognition at the very least once a year, but coming up with a unique gift can be a challenge.  This year, no need to worry because we have the perfect way to make the moms in your life not only feel special but love you even more for such a beautiful gift.

Stella Rosa has been crafting exquisite flavored wines for 100 years, so you know your mom will enjoy any bottle you choose from our semi-sweet line of red and white wines.  Add some sparkle to her day as our wines have a slight bubbly-fun to them.

Stella Berry, she’s the best friend wine; always lovely, compatible, delicious, and makes you smile – just like moms.  Her vibrant magenta color is inviting and friendly, a sure mom-pleaser.

Pair this sparkling delight with Farmgirl Flowers to rack up some serious presentation points.  These flowers are grown in San Francisco, picked and arranged at optimal freshness and placed in a distinctive burlap wrapping.  Flowers are the way to a mother’s heart, but this year she’ll really feel wonderful with this extra unique purchase.

This gorgeous combo will have your mom enjoying her gift for weeks following the special day and you’ll be supporting California businesses in the process which has to make you feel good too! What a way to celebrate a thoughtful holiday.

We’d love to see how happy these gifts make you and your mom, share your Stella Rosa Mother’s Day photos with us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter by using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate!
