St. James Winery Peach Wine

Who needs Love Potion #9 when you can whip up a Love Potion Made With Wine from St. James Winery?

It’s even better because it’s made with our Peach Wine, which just won double-gold at the 25th Annual Florida State Fair International Wine Competition!

Fill a tall Collins-style glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker mix equal parts

Pour the combined wine, vodka, and juice over the ice, then top off the glass with sparkling water or club soda.  Garnish with a slice of peach or a sprig of mint. And because it’s so simple, this also works great made by the pitcher.

Where did January go? It’s hard to believe the first month of the year is almost history and Valentine’s Day right around the corner.

Use the next couple of weeks to get a little bit of a head start on your Valentine plans for with bottles of St. James Winery’s sparkling wines.

  • St. James Winery Sparkling Blush has been a winery favorite for years! It’s a zesty fruity sparkling wine with flavors of butterscotch, candied apples and fruit salad.
  • St. James Winery Sparkling Moscato is an incredibly fruity and intensely floral sparkling wine with hints of honeysuckle on the nose and flavors of peaches and apricots.

For sparkling wine and food pairings, here are a few fast and easy suggestions:

  • Find a beautiful place, then fill it with chocolate truffles or chocolate dipped fruits.  If you’re feeling really energetic, try a chocolate fountain and with strawberries, raspberries, banana, or black cherries.
  • Serve a fruit or chocolate topped cheesecake with sparkling wines and let the bubbles balance off the sweet, heavy cheesecake.
  • Show off the beautiful bubbles with a flute glass, then float strawberries or raspberries in the wine as a garnish.

Just remember, our sparkling wines are only available online or in our Tasting Room, so unless you’re traveling to St. James in the next couple of weeks, order now if you want to have these on hand in time for Valentine’s Day!

When it’s time for a party to spice up a bleak mid-winter weekend, think 1.5 liter bottles from St. James Winery. Three of our most popular wines –Velvet Red, Velvet White, and Pink Catawba — are all available in the 1.5 liter size.

Stir up a punch bowl full of deliciousness and still have plenty leftover to enjoy! Here are three great recipe ideas to try:

Remember, when these recipes call for a “bottle of wine” it’s a 750ml sized bottle. So use half for the punch and save half for your guests who would like to enjoy a glass of wine.

Look for the 1.5 liter bottles of St. James Winery Velvet Red, Velvet White, and Pink Catawba in your favorite grocery or liquor store!


With winter weather staying cool outside, now’s the time to keep things cozy inside. Turn on the oven and create something warm and wonderful using St. James Winery’s fruit wines.

Pastry crust baked with cinnamon and sugar is delicious with a Blackberry Compote featuring our Blackberry Wine.

Try Raspberry Wine for a burst of berry flavors for a twist on the traditional Fruit Wine Cake.

Super-simple goodness: a dollop of ice cream on a slice of pound cake, topped with warm Reduction Sauce made with our Blueberry Wine.

Warm and toasty, our Baked Brie & Cherry Puff combines brie, honey, pecan, cherries, and Cherry Wine in a warm and creamy treat.

Peach Wine is the star in our Praline & Peach Wine Cobbler, which gets even better when served with a scoop of ice cream!

Fruit Wine Crepes made with our Strawberry Wine are perfect for an elegant dessert or decadent brunch.

St. James Winery reminds all our customers to please drink responsibly on New Year’s Eve and every evening during the coming year. If you’re hosting a party this New Year’s Eve, remember these helpful tips.

  • Don’t offer another drink until the the first one is completely gone.
  • Offer a variety of non-alcoholic drinks (think St. James Winery’s Sparkling Juices!)
  • Close the bar in advance of the end of the party, the serve a substantial snack.
  • Make sure there’s a designated driver (or drivers!) on hand.
  • If guests at your party have indulged just a little too much, don’t let them drive themselves home. Let them stay over at your house or call a cab.

Weekends in October are made for college football, corn mazes & carving pumpkins, and lazy walks through the woods.  Cooler days also make it more fun to heat up the oven and make your house smell like home.

At St. James Winery our signature  Blackberry Wine Cake is a perennial fall favorite.  This cake is an eye-catcher on the table with its jazzy purple color. The sweet buttery blackberry glaze make it a sure-fire winner.

Why not try switching out the Blackberry Wine for one of St. James Winery’s other fruit wines?  This cake is delicious as a BlueberryCherry, Peach, Raspberry or Strawberry Wine Cake!  Simply match the wine and gelatin flavors.
