Maple Falls Mulled Wine November 22nd, 2017
Mulled wine originated in the Roman
times, when the Romans would heat wine
to defend their bodies against the cold winter.
As they conquered much of Europe, their love
for mulled wine spread across their empire and
the regions they traded with.
As its popularity continued to grow throughout
the middle ages, they began to mix heated
wine with spices because they believed it would
promote health and avoid sickness. They would
also use herbs and flowers as natural sweeteners
to make unpalatable wines taste much nicer.
This aromatic, fruity and spicy mulled
wine is rich in orange, lemon and hints of
red berry fruits balanced with traditional
spice aromas of nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.
Delicious served warm (please don’t let it boil)
for a traditional infusion or cold as an ideal
base for a seasonal punch.
