Strawberries and Wine

I was so excited to hear that Grocery Outlet had opened a store close by.  Friends have told me about their great prices on organic produce and brand-name groceries. So you could only imagine that I was over the moon excited about their 20% off wine sale which runs from today, November 1st through the 7th.

Now that it is officially the holiday season I know the Grocery Outlet wine sale is the perfect time to stock up on all the wine I will need for the next 2 months of holiday festivities (parties, gift giving, and recipes).

I discovered the most amazing wines at Grocery Outlet. Here are just 3 of the selections I brought home with me. Handcraft Dark Red, Diama Extra Dry Prosecco, and John Osborn Napa Chardonnay.  While I was talking to a sales associate I learned that the wine buyers for Grocery Outlet are industry experts and live in Napa Valley.  So they know their wines!Strawberries and Wine

After picking out my wines I also picked up a couple of packages of beautiful plump strawberries, a round of brie cheese, and a box of crackers.  I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but the strawberries looked way to delicious not grab a couple of packages.  And the brie? How could I not when the price was so great?

On my way home I remembered my parents having a party when I was young.  My dad realized that he didn’t have enough red wine to go around so he added puréed fruit to the wine to stretch it a bit.  It was a huge hit with their guests and everyone wanted the recipe.

You can blend it all the way smooth, but I like the bits of strawberries.
