Great Chaddsford “Drink” Recipes

There are all kinds of ways to enjoy Chaddsford wines and the Drink of the Month is a fun way to experiment with different recipes. Each month will feature a new seasonal concoction served in a fun wine glass or mug-in the warm Spring and Summer months we’ll mix up cool, frozen slushies and punches and in the cold Fall and Winter weather months it will be all about steamin’ hot mulled wines.
