Roam the Rogue Sneak Peak

Join Del Rio for the Roam the Rogue Spring Passport Tour this Saturday from 11 to 5pm.

This event is full of fun as you travel to the eight participating Rogue Valley wineries. Del Rio will be pouring three fantastic wines: Pinot Gris, Claret & Rose Jolee. This Saturday will mark the release of our 2009 Claret - Be the first to taste it on the Roam the Rogue tour. For our food pairing Jolee is wiping up a delicious dessert to pair with the fabulous Rose Jolee and the warm weather of Summer. To tempt your taste buds here is a look at the recipe:

Yogurt, Berries and Vincotto
Place 1 large tub of plain low fat yogurt in a colander lined with cheese cloth. Place in a bowl and set inrefrigerator letting liquid drain out.

Vincotto –
1 C. Red Wine
½ C. sugar
1 pinch cardamom
½ stick of cinnamon

Boil all together until it starts to coat a spoon and the water has evaporated. If it gets too thick just add a touch of water.

When the yogurt becomes firm like cheese, spoon into individual portion cups. Top with raspberries, sliced strawberries & blackberries. Top with a chocolate wafer. Drizzle the Vincotto over the whole thing. Perfect for summer, enjoy with Del Rio Rose Jolee.
