Christmas in your mouth!
A warm blanket around your heart!
Bonfire is taking Southern Alberta by storm, and it is warming hearts and melting colds. It is a traditional European winter wine but also warms you up on cool summer nights. Bonfire is pre-mulled, so the only thing you need to do is warm the wine in either a pot or microwave. It is crafted from black currants, saskatoons, cinnamon and cloves. The berry notes make it a great base for a perfectly balanced mulled wine and provide a much smoother finish than the traditional mulled wine made with grape wine due to the absence of tannins. Drinking it will make you feel like Christmas, no matter which time of the year. It will warm you to the bone after a day of skiing, hockey, tobogganing, ice fishing, or around the bonfire on cool summer nights. The perfect wine for Alberta winter and summer camping enjoyments.
The key in making a spectacular mulled wine is to expose to wine only for a short period to heat in order to not loose most or all of the alcohol. Therefore we suggest to warm Bonfire up in a pot on the stove or the microwave to just before the boiling point and either immediately serve it or keep it warm in a thermos. This allows you to maintain most of the alcohol while providing you with an extra-ordinary warm and soothing red wine sensation.
Serve hot & enjoy!
Keep warm in a thermos.
And in case you would have anything left, put it in the fridge and whenever you feel like it, pour some in a cup and warm it in the microwave.
Bonfire pairs great with Alberta weather winter weather and summer nights.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
Thank you for making such a lovely mead! I didn't know what to expect from Alberta's Wild Rose but it was a wonderful bottle of wine! The flavour, the colour, the pure ingredients, fantastic!!
Shelley Smith, customer
Shared our first bottle of Dande this past weekend, and it was perfect! Dry enough for my husband to enjoy, but the underlying sweetness of the honey was just right for me. Wonderful experience, sharing and savoring our lovely mead wine. Might have to make this a Friday night tradition!
Tara Petersen, accredited Sommelier of the International Sommelier Guild
At first I was a bit skeptical when asked to profile the meads, but what a wonderful surprise it was to find local wines of such quality. Both Dande and Alberta's Red are well-structured and balanced wines with perfect acidity and an outstanding length. They are very food friendly, but can also be enjoyed all by themselves. And even though they are both dry, you can smell and taste the honey, it's almost like you can taste the sunshine and the flowering fields. These are wines that we Albertans can be proud of.

Visiting Spirit Hills is like visiting a quality winery in Sonoma or the Napa Valley. The visit will transport you to a different world and the wine will entirely amaze you and inspire you.
