It’s that day of the week again! That’s right, Wine Wednesday. You will recognize the winery because I featured another one of their products in the last Wine Wednesday. When I was at the Wine & Spirits store, I already knew I was going to pick up a bottle of the Spiced Apple. I saw the bottle of Holiday Spirit on the shelf next to it as I was contemplating the next wine I would feature, and I just couldn’t resist. Especially with the snowmen winter scene on the bottle label.
The Wine: Chaddsford Winery Holiday Spirit
Price: $10.99 (this is the regular price)
Bottle Description: Robustly red, sweetly spiced, as comforting as a glowing fire on a snowy night. A perfect companion, whether you’d rather be wassailing or just slowly savoring the aromas of cinnamon and cloves. To transform winter chill into holiday cheer, gently warm and serve with your most cherished traditions.
About Chaddsford Winery: Founded in 1982 by Eric and Lee Miller, this winery is located in the Brandywine Valley, and is Pennsylvania’s largest winery. They pride themselves on making locally sourced, quality wines for people to enjoy. Their selection ranges from dry varieties, artisanal treasures, and the “fun and easy to drink” selections.
Impressions: Another wine that will be a staple in my house this winter. I love hot wine, and it makes the house smell wonderful. This wine is more robust and slightly heavier than the Spiced Apple, and the flavor profile reminds me slightly of blackberries. The cinnamon and cloves also make themselves know. It doesn’t remind me much of the traditional Glühwein served at German Christmas markets, but I really enjoyed the sweetness of it.
Note: Any wines from Chaddsford Winery are currently only available in Pennsylvania. So it’s a perfect excuse to come visit.
