Grandma is never short on new finds to sip by the fire.  What Grandma drinks, she shares…with you!

Go, Choochie*!

Rojo Dulce is a sweet red table wine found at Specs and World Market (seasonally at WM, starting in September) and sells for $10-ish a bottle.


I know some of you just rolled them red wine-lover eyes back into your head, while wrinkling your nose, but hear me out.

#1) Just because a delicious adult beverage is inexpensive, doesn’t mean it’s awful.  I think we all remember the Barefoot Bubbly Review. I’ll remind you that I have a few bottles on hand at all times. Yep. That good.

#2) Sometimes you get more than what you pay for.  I think we all remember the Vodka with bonus Mason Jars. (the horror!)

Enter Rojo Dulce:

What Grandma Drinks

It’s not only delicious, it’s like the vineyard produced it with my birthday in mind (Dia de Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead).  Isn’t the packaging fun!

I first had it with friends (actually mostly Boy’s friends) during a college football game party.  WHAT?!  Don’t looked so shocked; we are a civilized people, people.

To tell you the truth, I almost declined to taste it because red wines and I have a history of not getting along.  Most of them are too dry for my liking and while I want to love them, I end up talking behind their backs and expressing my distaste to anyone who will listen, complete with the wrinkled-up face some of you made earlier.

But this wine changed my mind and my heart.  It’s red.  It’s sweet.  It’s perfect.

Oh, Rojo Dulce, how I love thee.

When you’re in need of a fun desserty red, snag you a couple of bottles.

You can thank me by unscrunching your face and enjoying a glass.



* My grandmama name for the time being.  Yes.  I know.  Let’s hope Sweet E changes it STAT!
