Mulled Wine From America's Oldest Winery


"Sweet, red wine with a saucy, sweet, tart, spicy taste. Just heat, then wait for the pungent and tantalizing aroma that will make any day a holiday," said Winery notes of today's pick, from the Empire State, of course — Brotherhood Holiday Spiced Wine. Today's other pick, Casa Larga Vineyards' Cab-Merlot, comes from even closer to home, the town next door, despite the winery's un-American name and motto: "Experience an Italian way of life." Returning downstate, it is interesting to note that Brotherhood Winery "remained in operation during Prohibition as it produced sacramental wine for the Catholic Church."
