Drunken Oranges Paired with Hans & Lena Pinot Gris

This Memorial Weekend we are offering a sneak peek of our 2017 Hans & Lena Pinot Gris. For 2 days only you’ll get to sample the 2015 & 2017 Late Harvest style Pinot Gris. Make sure to check out the video above of our bottling of the 2017 vintage.

This past weekend I made drunken oranges for a dinner party and they were delicious!! This is a super easy recipe that I hope you’ll try.

Ingredients

  • 8 oranges
  • 1 bottle Hans & Lena Pinot Gris
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons diced mint
  • 2 tablespoons powder sugar

 

Directions

  • Peel oranges and break or cut into pieces or wedges, and place into a mixing bowl.
  • Pour the bottle of Hans & Lean over oranges.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or over night.
  • Place a mixing bowl in the freezer for at least 20 minutes to get cold for making whipped cream
  • Right before serving pour heavy whipping cream, sugar and mint into the cold bowl and whisk on high speed until medium to stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.
  • Spoon oranges into serving bowl, sprinkle with cinnamon & nutmeg, and top with whipped cream.
  • To make it a complete pairing you can serve a small glass of Hans & Lean Pinot Gris to sip while enjoying the dessert.

2017 Rosé voted Top 25 Rosés of 2018 By Vinepair.com

We are excited to announce our 2017 Rosé was featured in VinePair.com The Best 25 Rosé Wines of 2018! We were one of only 3 Oregon Rosés to make the list.

Selection Process:
“To determine our list of the 25 best rosés of 2018, we released an open call for submissions, scoured wine shops, and gathered a panel of beverage industry experts to taste as many pink wines as humanly possible. We opt not to taste blind, figuring modern consumers rarely shop without considering prices. This led to some tough decisions, like eliminating Garrus, Whispering Angel’s top-tier offering, from our ranking. Although our panel found it subtle, sophisticated, and undeniably tasty, we couldn’t justify its $104 price tag.”
