With the weather warming up, St. James Winery has the answer for the perfect tropical escape! Our new, year-round fruit wine was a past customer favorite seasonal wine selection, Mango! This sweet wine is made from 100% pure, ripe mangos with no added artificial flavors or colors. 

St. James Winery Mango is a great wine to enjoy chilled during the hot months of summer. It’s a great addition in many drink and food recipes too. A favorite drink recipe at our St. James campus is our Mango Wine Slushie. You can find our refreshing wine slushies in The Gardens, located between the Winery and Public House Brewing Company’s St. James Taproom. While this delicious wine slushie can be found in The Gardens, you can make it in the comfort of your own home. This recipe works great with any of the St. James Winery fruit wines.

Find St. James Winery Mango and our other fruit wine in our Tasting Room or in a store near you to beat the heat this summer!

St. James Winery Fruit WInes

St. James Winery’s innovative line of fruit wines are the perfect complement to a summer meal.  And with all the fresh fruits in season, the only difficulty is deciding what to cook!

Here are a few delicious ideas:

Not only do our fruit wines taste great in food, they are delicious when savored all by themselves.  At the recent LA Wine Competition wine judges awarded five of our fruit wines scores of 90+, including Peach which won Best of Class!

St. James Winery at Los Angeles Wine Competition

Eight St. James Winery wines received 90 points or better, including two 97 point ratings, at the 2013 Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition, held May 15 and 16 at the Los Angeles County Fair. The LA Wine & Spirits Competition uses a 100 point rating scale for gold medal winning wines.

Best of Class winners were:

  • 2012 Vignoles (97 points)
  • Friendship School White (97 points)
  • Peach (91 points)

Other gold medal award winners include:

  • Cynthiana (92 points)
  • Blackberry (90 points)
  • Blueberry (90 points)
  • Mango (90 points)
  • Raspberry (90 points)

“Our 2012 Vignoles is absolutely amazing! The exceptional quality of the wine is thanks in part to last year’s drought. The lack of rainfall resulted in pristine Vignoles grapes,” said Peter Hofherr, CEO of St. James Winery. “Our Friendship White Wine is another wine that has traditionally done well for us, and over the years it’s won quite a few Best of Class awards in wine competitions.”

“It was also gratifying to see our fruit wines continue to be standouts in wine competition, too. This year at Los Angeles, Peach led the way with the Best of Class award,” Hofherr continued, “but Blackberry, Blueberry, Mango, and Raspberry were close behind with gold medals of their own. In fact, all 16 wines St. James Winery entered in LA, won medals, and half of those were gold medals.”

St. James Winery is the largest and most awarded winery in Missouri. Founded by the Hofherr family in 1970, St. James Winery celebrating more than 40 years as a family owned and operated winery, St. James Winery wines are sold in 19 states and is online at www.stjameswinery.com.

St. James Winery Mango Wine

Feeling the need for a beach getaway but no vacation time on the horizon? Running a little short on Vitamin “Sea”? For a tropical taste treat, grab some St. James Winery’s Mango Fruit Wine, it’s the next best thing to a vacation in the sun.

“Now that the days are getting longer and the countdown to summer is on, it’s time to enjoy Mango Fruit Wine,” said Peter Hofherr, CEO of St. James Winery. “Better hurry though, our Mango wine is a seasonal selection and only available for a limited time.”

Like all other St. James Winery fruit wines, Mango wine makes a delicious wine cocktail. This weekend for Cinco de Mayo try a Mango-Rita. For on the rocks drinks grab a big pitcher and mix a bottle of St. James Winery Mango wine with seven ounces of tequila and a half cup of chopped fresh mango. Add the juice of a lemon and a dash of lime juice and serve them up in salt-rimmed margarita glasses with a snip of mint.

For food and wine pairings, Mango wine goes well with either sweet or salty (or both!) It’s terrific with angel food cake or orange pound cake and tasty with chili spiced nuts or garlic bagel chips. Or try layering flavors: slice fresh mango off the sides of the seed, leaving the peel on. Sprinkle the top of the fruit with raw sugar and broil until the sugar caramelizes. Scoop the warm fruit from the peel and enjoy with a glass of mango fruit wine. Mango fruit wine also makes a delicious smoothie by blending equal parts fresh mango, mango fruit wine, and ice, then adding raw sugar to taste.

St. James Winery Mango Wine can be found wherever St. James Winery wines are sold. Look for the mango sunshine label or order online right now!  And with Mother’s Day coming up, why not share the Mango Wine love with Mom — she’ll thank you for it!
