Host a Backyard Movie Night

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.

If this flavorful pairing makes you smile, be sure to share some photos with us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate. Stella Rosa wines can be purchased online or at your local retailer. Enjoy!

  • -

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!

We’re all about personal touches, which is a main reason we’re obsessing over hand lettering cards right now. Besides being fun and pretty, they just add the right amount of cheerfulness that will guarantee to bring a smile to that special friend, significant other, sister, mom, coworker, whoever.

All you need is a small box, basket, or even a nice gift bag. We added a candle, journal, and last but definitely not least – Stella Rosa. We opted for Stella Minis, but our 750ml bottles work just as well. Print out your favorite hand lettering card that is most suitable for the occasion, and complete your package with a thoughtful note. Download the PDF here.

Shameless Ways I’ve Spent My Valentine’s Day

  • -

Although we may not want to admit it, all of us have done at least a couple of these things on the most loving (or annoying) holiday of the year; Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re going out with your boo or spending your Valentine’s Day with your true love, Stella Rosa wine, be sure to enjoy yourself and indulge in these guilty pleasures!

1. Ditched my diet and ate ice cream (our favorite is Halo Top Chocolate Almond Crunch)
2. Drank an entire bottle of Stella Rosa Black wine
3. Did way too much online shopping
4. Attempted to do yoga, but fell asleep instead
5. Mastered the “smokey eye” look
6. Knitted a sweater for my cat (or dog)
7. Posted something on social media that I will later regret
8. Handed out cartoon Valentine’s Day cards to my friends or coworkers (because are you ever too old to love SpongeBob SquarePants!?)
9. Called my best friend to dish about our love lives
10. Took down my Christmas decorations (finally!)
11. Cancelled my plans so I could stay in and binge-watch ‘Friends’ on Netflix
12. Ignored my text messages because I was busy creeping on my ex’s Instagram
13. Drank Stella Rosa Moscato D’Asti wine straight out of the bottle
14. Memorized the words to ‘Baby Got Back’ (I blame this on binge-watching ‘Friends’)
15. Vowed to start running (tomorrow…or maybe the next day)

How To Create An Instagram-Worthy Charcuterie Board

  • -

And the award for best wine goes to… Stella Rosa!

Award-winning wine is just what you want when you’re tuning in to all the awards shows like the Grammys, BAFTAs, and Oscars (to name a few). To go with your wine, put together a delectable charcuterie board. We’ve got the tips right here so you create the most eye-catching, Instagram-worthy spread.

Meat
2 ounces of a meat per person. Vary up flavors and textures like a hard salami, a smoked meat, something soft like pate, and something tangy like a pineapple sausage.

Cheese
Like with meat, offer a variety of textures and styles: sharp, creamy, funky, soft, etc. Cheeses from different regions work well too.

Bread & Crackers
Keep it simple so as to not overpower the flavors of your meats and cheeses. Crackers and toasted baguette slices do just fine.

Garnishes & Condiments
Here’s where you get to add more color to your board. What do you like (to eat or just for presentation)? Mustard, pickles, nuts, olives, figs, grapes, honey, jam, fennel salad, micro greens, etc.

Get creative! Put a little thought and strategy into this so you can get a good variety – and an Instagram and Snapchat-worthy board! But, don’t overthink it either because in the end, you’re munching on these with a glass of Stella Rosa wine and that’s the most important part!

Show off your charcuterie masterpiece by following us on Instagram and Twitter and using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your caption.

Why DIY? Because Sometimes You Have To

  • -

Sweet-Red-Wine_1

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.

Stellabrate At The Top

Sweet-Red-Wine_1

As tradition goes, red wine is always favored over all others during the winter months. And so, when you’re up at Mt. High enjoying your day trip or quick weekend getaway, make sure you request Stella Rosa Rosso from the Bull Wheel, Foggy Goggle, and Big Pine bar areas! Stella Rosa Rosso is a sweet red wine – the original semi-sweet, semi-sparkling wine, actually! It’s got great strawberry and red berry characteristics.

Because this red wine is on the sweeter side, it is very easy to enjoy anytime during your snow day, whether you’re sipping on a glass during your mid-day break or at the end of your day when you can relax in front of the fireplace.
