Harvest Spiced Punch

Harvest Spiced Wine Punch

Oh man, Thanksgiving was awesome this year!!

We really enjoyed our 4-day weekend!! It was great to relax, spend time with family and friends, and, of course, eat great food and drink awesome drinks.

Harvest Spiced Wine Punch-1

I made this Harvest Spiced Punch with the Harvest Spiced Red Blend from Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi with us to our Thanksgiving celebration at my sister-in-law’s house.

Plus, I brought the cutest aprons with us too!

All of this fun cheer was because of Robert Mondavi. Yes!!!

I love sangria so I was eager to give this Harvest Spiced Punch a try. And I gotta say I really liked it. We all really liked it. That pitcher was dry by the end of the night.

The rich, wine blend is perfect on its own at room temperature, chilled in this punch, or warmed as a mulled wine.

Plus, it just looks pretty.

This would be awesome to make for a holiday party as you can make a really big batch by doubling or tripling it. It will make your party prep and time really enjoyable as making the punch is very quick and then you don’t have to worry about making drinks for your guest during the party. It’s fantastic when you can sit back and relax during your own party, no!?!

Lastly, it’s really affordable too!! Bottles are $5.99-7.99 making this punch very affordable for a large crowd. Save some money for your gift giving!

My mom is coming up before Christmas so I know I’ll be making a batch for us to enjoy during her visit.

Or we can just toss a bottle in a pot with cinnamon sticks, orange slices and cloves to warm for a cozy mulled wine.

The Taggarts!

It was fun taking this picture with my Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law, in our aprons from the Woodbridge Harvest Wine Set, a limited-edition kitchen set including a matching apron, pot holder, and wine tote. The autumnal design with beautiful leaves is inspired by the new Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Harvest Spiced Red Blend wine.

The set will benefit AmpleHarvest.org, a national non-profit organization that helps food pantries provide fresh fruit and vegetables from local gardens to families in need. For the sale of every Woodbridge Harvest Wine Set this holiday season, Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi will donate all proceeds (estimated at $35.00 per set) to AmpleHarvest.org, helping feed American families in need.

Even Price enjoyed the apron! ha!!

I jokingly put it on him but he actually enjoyed it as he pointed out that it was a nice thick canvas material, as opposed to some other aprons are just thin cotton. He liked how this felt like it has some substance to it.
