Mulled Wine made with Elkhorn Peak Pinot Noir

Makes 4-6 servings


  • 1 (750 ml) bottle of Elkhorn Peak Pinot Noir

  • 1 orange, sliced into rounds (also peeled, if you would like a less-bitter drink)

  • 8 whole cloves

  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  • 2 stars of anise

  • 2 to 4 tablespoons of your desired sweetener. Try wither white or brown sugar, honey or maple syrup.

Optional add-in: 1/4 cup brandy (or your favorite liqueur - we also like Grand Marnier)

Optional garnishes: citrus slices (orange, lemon and/or lime), extra cinnamon sticks, extra star anise


  1. Add wine, brandy, orange slices, cloves, cinnamon, star anise, and 2 tablespoons sweetener to a large saucepan. Stir briefly to combine.

  2. Simmer. Cook the mulled wine on medium-high heat until it just barely reaches a simmer. (Avoid letting it bubble — you don’t want to boil off the alcohol.) Reduce heat to low, cover, and let the wine simmer for at least 15 minutes.

  3. Strain. Using a fine mesh strainer, remove and discard the orange slices, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and star anise. Give the mulled wine a taste, and stir in extra sweetener if needed.

  4. Serve. Serve in mugs, topped with your favorite garnishes.
