Warm Up Your Winter in Lodi, California

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.
  4. Pour into your favorite glass mugs and enjoy!

Not the recipe making type? No problem. Head to downtown Lodi and grab a glass of mulled wine from the Weibel Family Tasting room. Cozy up next to the fireplace in this intimate tasting room located in the heart of downtown Lodi. The warmth of the interior decor and welcoming staff will have you keep coming back for more.
