The Best Peach Wines of the Season!

One of the best times of the year in the Midwest is definitely peach season! Whether you’re picking some up from your local farmers market or spending a day picking your own at Eckert’s Family Farms, it’s a great time of the year for all–so it makes sense that peach wine would be so popular here too! 🍑

Here are some of my favorite peach wines made by amazing Midwest wineries!

DIY Mini Wine Bottle String Lights

Create your own fun mini wine bottle string lights that will light up any occasion!

Here’s what you will need!

• Plastic mini wine bottles with screw caps (available at most liquor and grocery stores in singles and 4-packs)

• String lights with attachable/detachable bulbs (here’s an example! bit.ly/2JUbG6P) **bulbs should be no larger than 0.7” or they won’t fit inside of bottle neck

• Hand drill with 16/34” drill bit

Step 1. Go get some tacos, drink the wine, feel real fine.

Step 2. Remove the wine bottle labels. Soaking them in warm soapy water usually does the trick!

Step 3. Make sure there is no liquid left in the bottles!

Step 4. Safely drill a hole (I used a 13/64″ bit) in the screw cap of the bottles.

Step 5. String each individual light into each screw top hole, then secure the bulb onto the light.

Step 6. Screw each cap back onto each wine bottle and voila! You have a fun string of lights any wine lover would be proud to own!

Missouri Wobbles and Wine!

On October 6, 2018 the annual Missouri Wine Wobble took over Cedar Lake Cellars ! “Will run for wine” is a common phrase in the wine world and with the Missouri Wine Wobble, you really can run(or wobble) and be rewarded with wine! 🙌🍷👟

The Missouri Wine Wobble has a little something for everyone! (Even people like me who can’t stand running🤣) Not up to running an entire 5K? Then sign up for the 1K Taster’s Trot! Feeling like you have some energy to burn? Sign up for both the 5K AND 1K races and get extra wobbly! It really is a blast for everyone!

Once you’ve picked which race is right for you, prepare to “wobble” thru the vineyards stopping every so often for a wine break!

Once you’ve finished your race, there is more wine and whiskey (and water) waiting for you to enjoy! Races over? Now it’s time to party! The after party will sure to keep that wobble wobbly!
