Strawberries And Red Wine

 

Strawberries and Wine

I was so excited to hear that Grocery Outlet had opened a store close by.  Friends have told me about their great prices on organic produce and brand-name groceries. So you could only imagine that I was over the moon excited about their 20% off wine sale which runs from today, November 1st through the 7th.

Now that it is officially the holiday season I know the Grocery Outlet wine sale is the perfect time to stock up on all the wine I will need for the next 2 months of holiday festivities (parties, gift giving, and recipes).

I discovered the most amazing wines at Grocery Outlet. Here are just 3 of the selections I brought home with me. Handcraft Dark Red, Diama Extra Dry Prosecco, and John Osborn Napa Chardonnay.  While I was talking to a sales associate I learned that the wine buyers for Grocery Outlet are industry experts and live in Napa Valley.  So they know their wines!Strawberries and Wine

After picking out my wines I also picked up a couple of packages of beautiful plump strawberries, a round of brie cheese, and a box of crackers.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but the strawberries looked way to delicious not grab a couple of packages.  And the brie? How could I not when the price was so great?

On my way home I remembered my parents having a party when I was young.  My dad realized that he didn’t have enough red wine to go around so he added puréed fruit to the wine to stretch it a bit.  It was a huge hit with their guests and everyone wanted the recipe.

You can blend it all the way smooth, but I like the bits of strawberries.

    What a delicious drink! So perfect for the holiday season. I love your images – I want to pull one of your glasses filled with strawberries and red wine straight out of my computer screen!

    What an awesome idea! It looks better than actual wine to me! Also, another great idea, buy lots of wine and give it as gifts, so easy yet absolutely brilliant! I’m sure no one will complain! 😉

    This is really interesting. Not like I need an excuse, but this gives me a great excuse for having some red wine tonight. I am going to grab some strawberries from the store and then do this “research”. 🙂

    I love red wine, so any type of recipe that offers a new way to have it is a great find! I’ve added many things to wine, but never a fruit puree. I will try this the next time I get my hands on fresh fruits!

    I’ve never heard of Grocery Outlet before, but it sounds awesome! I’m not a huge wine person, but adding in some strawberries might just do the trick for me, thanks for the wonderful idea!!
