Swedish Hill Glogg

      Winter has arrived in Western Pennsylvania and if its “Opening Act” is any indication of what is to come we can expect a long, cold and snowy season.  When I think of a summer wine I naturally think of Rosé and when I think of a winter wine my attention turns to Glögg.  Swedish Hill Winery, in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Region, makes an outstanding spicy and aromatic Glögg ($10.99) flavored with extracts of cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and ginger imported from Sweden.  Glögg is served warm and for a traditional Swedish touch Swedish Hill Winery provides this recipe on their website: 1 bottle of Glögg, 1/2 cup raisins, 1/4 cup maraschino cherries, 1/4 cup slivered almonds and 1 sliced orange.  Heat-do not boil-do not use aluminum pot-can use crockpot on low setting to heat wine. If you want to make your Glögg from scratch there are lots of recipes available online.

  1. Thanks! Another wine to look for…

  2. I’m from Norway and grew up drinking glogg. Now I like to use it as a welcom drink around Christmas time, and I usually add raisins and slivered almonds. Sometimes I also spike it with vodka, just to liven up the party a bit lol.
