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.
Today we are putting together a lovely little gift package with a few of our favorite things and gifting them to those special people in our life. What better way to show someone how much they mean to you than with a few thoughtful words and Stella Rosa wine?! We sure can’t think of a better way!
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.

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!
We love games and we love when it even more when it involves wine, so gather a few bottles of your favorite Stella Rosa wine and challenge your friends to a Blind Wine Tasting! You only need a few items to host this event and with 13 different Stella Rosa flavors to choose from, you can certainly test everyone’s palate. Cover the bottles with bags, number them for your reference, and let the fun begin!
Step 1: Determine how many people are coming and how many bottles would be needed. If you’re hosting a large party, have your guests bring 2 bottles of Stella Rosa, one can be used for the game and one can go in a stash as the prize for the winner.
Step 2: Cover the bottles with material. Download Stella Rosa’s Blind Wine Tasting sheets to record the secret list of the number associated to the bottle
Step 3: Set out your cheese and cracker plates
Step 4: Hand out the Blind Wine Tasting sheets with pens to all your guests, and get to sipping!
The best way to show off your great hosting abilities is to show us pictures on our social media pages. We look forward to seeing how your Blind Wine Tasting turned out! Share with us on Facebook or Instagram and use #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your captions.
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.
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.
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!
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.
The big game is this weekend and we can’t wait to spend time with good friends, while eating delicious food and drinking great wine, and let’s not forget commercial watching! That’s right, for this Super Bowl 50 we will be tuning in and enjoying it all with our Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria (a sister brand of ours) in hand.
There are definitely no rules when it comes to appreciating a good game with a great glass of wine, so get your Stella Rosa and Bodega Sangria ready because we are pairing our most favorite sweet wines and sangria with our most favorite Super Bowl eats!
Happy National Chocolate Cake Day! As if we really needed an excuse to indulge in all things sweet. We are not questioning anything because this is a “holiday” we can really get behind. There is no shame in pairing a few of your favorite treats, and it’s pretty obvious chocolate and wine are our faves. Today we are treating ourselves to a little chocolate cake and Stella Red – ok we lie, maybe a lot of chocolate cake and a lot of wine.
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.
Racing down the slopes at Mt. High is a pretty sweet thrill, but capping it off with some Stella Rosa wine in between takes or at the end of the day is the frosting on top of it all. Your favorite semi-sweet wines of Stella Rosa are being served at Mt. High all season long! Just go to Big Pine, Foggy Goggle, or the Bull Wheel areas of the resort and ask for Stella Rosa Rosso or Stella Rosa Moscato d’Asti – both popular flavors will be sold. Sister brand Bodega Sangria will also be available at all three locations!
Still writing your last minute holiday shopping list? We just made your list much easier: semi-sweet wines are the perfect addition to your holiday meal! Whether you are in charge of appetizers, the main course, side dishes, or dessert, semi-sweet wines pair with everything!
Macarons are one of our favorite desserts. We love the chewy texture and taste from the crisp little cookie and can’t get enough of the soft creamy filling. Today we are helping you pair these popular sweet French confections with Stella Rosa for a truly delicious and special experience.
