Aurora Cellars' Mulled Wine
By Anna Faller | Nov. 18, 2023
Celebration is the name of the game at Aurora Cellars in Lake Leelanau, where boutique wines and picturesque views are a haven for weddings and special events. As for a celebratory beverage? We’d go with a steaming-hot mug of Mulled Wine. A fresh take on the cold-weather classic, the winery’s version features estate-grown Medium Sweet Riesling (2018) steeped in a blend of fragrant spices—think: allspice, cinnamon, and clove—all sourced from Suttons Bay Trading Co. The result is a sweet-apple palette, balanced by a dry-spiced finish. Each pour is served in a branded mug and topped with a citrusy kick of fresh orange. Pair one with a house charcuterie board, and you’ll really have something to celebrate! (Psst—you can also snag your own spice pack to play with mulled beverages at home!). Snuggle up with a mug ($12) at Aurora Cellars tasting room at 7788 E. Horn Road.
