1. Add ice, blackberries, and orange slices to a cocktail shaker.
2. Squeeze in juice of 1/2 orange.
4. Remove lid of shaker. Take your serving glass and insert it upside down into the shaker. Holding both the shaker and serving glass together tightly, turn it upside down so that the cocktail pours out into the serving glass.
5. Top with Stella Rosa Red or Black and garnish with an unusual-looking rambutan fruit.
Truthfully, the rambutan is just for looks, but feel free to bite into it if you are feeling a little more adventurous!
Stella Rosa Wines can be purchased at your local retailer or at San Antonio Winery in-store and online. To get into the Stellaween spirit, we poured straight from a bottle wrapped in one of our exclusive, limited edition Stellaween sleeves.

Summer is officially here and there are a few things we won’t be living without – going outside and getting some sun, spending time with friends, picnicking, and of course, drinking Stella Rosa wines. Today we are putting all these things together and sharing with you quick and easy ways to pack for the perfect summer picnic.
Stella Rosa wines have an array of flavors that will give you plenty of options for you and your friends. Pack enough to share and enjoy them chilled. From Stella Pink to Moscato Orange to Stella Rosso, Stella Rosa has you covered in sweetness and delicious flavors. View our complete collection here.
Note: Stella Minis and Aluminums fit perfectly into a picnic basket and are great for outdoor entertainment!
It’s important to pack picnic foods that travel well and aren’t too much fuss. Bite sized sandwiches, fresh fruit, easy green salads, cheese and charcuterie are tasty options.
Picnics are easy because you can have one practically anywhere. Think backyards, parks, beaches – all make great picnic spots. Just keep in mind to pack accordingly depending on the spot you select, i.e. some places don’t allow glassware so going with our Aluminum bottles is best.
You can’t possibly have a picnic without a basket, well technically you can, but why would you want to? Make sure you pack light if you plan to hike to your destination spot. Pack enough blankets if you’ll be sitting on the grass or if you get chilly. You’ll also want to pack reusable/ disposable dishware and utensils; bring containers to store your food and for leftovers. Don’t forget the music – make a playlist ahead of time and take portable speakers to enjoy your favorite tunes. Additional activities like card games, cornhole, football, volleyball etc. can also be a lot of fun.

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.

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!
