Mulled Wine is a wonderful warm beverage that is traditionally served during the winter months, especially Christmas time. This simple recipe is sure to become a tradition in any home! 



  • Bottle of your favorite Lodi red wine

  • Spices – 4 Cardamom pods, 1 cinnamon stick, 3 star anise, and 4 whole cloves

  • 1 Orange – zested and cut up

  • 1 Apple - diced

  • 1 teaspoon Sugar


  1. Pour wine into sauce pan.

  2. Add spices, orange zest, cut up orange, diced apples, and sugar to the wine.

  3. Lightly simmer for 10-15 minutes. Do not boil: this could make the alcohol burn out and could give the wine a burnt caramel taste.
