Had to google gluhwein. Thanks for sharing will need to try that out.
No problem. Any recipe you can find is probably good, I use oranges, cloves, cinnamon sticks, and sometimes nutmeg or allspice. Just make sure you don't boil it, and serve it nice and hot. It's one of my favorite things in the winter.

Look around where you live for umm, low class Italian Restaurants. I found one around me that only poured Carlo Rossi wines by the glass and they would save me all of their empties. They would only go through maybe one or two a week, but that adds up in your collection over time.

The only sad part is when you try to get her to drink MORE. (not there yet...we will see how my single gallon batches go)
Do you ever make her cider?

I use the Carlo Rossi Sangria as the base of my sangria. Add some fruit, sugar and a bunch of brandy, both plain and flavored (i.e. blackberry, peach)). People love it.

I can only stomach the burgundy, but I have a ton of jugs now!

I use the burgundy in spaghetti sauce (it's great), and in my famous "sweet and sour meatballs"- the kind without pineapple, similar to a sweet BBQ sauce.

A #6 stopper fits well, I have enough jugs that I store star-san in one of them!

Yes, cider was a big hit!!! Second batch in the primary and taking it's sweet time. She liked the cider better than Carlos Rossi (like that's a compliment...), but it's a great alternative for a gluten-intolerant.

This will be my second batch of cider, so I got more creative with 2 cinnamon sticks. I stay with a simple recipe. Apelwein is on the list as well.

Also doing a Mead, but that's probably one year away from being ready.

Bought a jug of Carlo Rossi back in October while on a two-week road trip in the US. Wasn't easy but finished it before flying to New York with it. From NY I returned to Israel with another gallon jug (not Carlo Rossi) and a 3 gallon carboy in a duffel bag. The looks they gave me at the security checkpoint.

Took a picture of it (for some reason) on the trip's first night, in a cabin near Bryce Canyon, Utah.

Oh, by the way, here's what the two jugs are doing at the moment: fermenting an experimental batch of the Bee Cave Hefeweizen recipe with two different dry yeasts (the Carlo Rossi is on the left).

I go to whole foods and buy empty 1 gallon cider jugs from the juice bar for the $0.25 deposit. I have at least 10 of them with random fermentations going.
