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.

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.

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.

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!

Wrapped in Love: Wrapping Paper for Stella Rosa Minis

  • -

img_0073_edited

Filled with small but handy trinkets, gag gifts, small tokens, and other goodies, stockings are perhaps our favorite gifts to open on Christmas Day. As great as it would be, a full-sized bottle of Stella Rosa is too large and too heavy for stockings. But luckily enough, our Stella Rosa minis are the most adorable and the perfect size! And this year, we created fun, custom wrapping paper just for these Stella Rosa minis.

Download and print our custom wrapping paper here:pdf-icon

We know wrapping wine bottles are a bit tricky because of the shape of the bottle, but with our custom wrapping paper, it really couldn’t get any easier. Just cut along the designated lines and tie it around the neck of the bottle with a ribbon or bow!

img_0066_edited

Half the fun is wrapping the Stella Rosa bottle and placing it in your loved one’s stockings (while enjoying your own glass of Stella Rosa and all your favorite holiday sweets); the other half is watching your loved ones light up with joy when they open the gift!

Spread the holiday cheer by sharing your Stella Rosa holiday photos with us on Instagram using #StellaRosa and #Stellabrate in your caption. The Minis are available in the Rosso, Pink, Moscato, Prosecco, Berry, and Peach flavors, and can be purchased at San Antonio Winery in-store. You can also contact your local retailer to check if they’re in stock.

From us at Stella Rosa, we wish you a wonderful Stella Rosa-filled holiday season!
