Celebrate Hot Dog Day the Right Way - with WINE!

Did you know that July 19th is Hot Dog Day and that the entire month of July is hot dog month? There's nothing better than a delicious hot dog cooked up on the grill, and the only thing that makes it better is serving it with a glass of delicious wine. If you want to add a bit of sophistication to your hot dog today, here are a few of the most popular American hot dog styles and the wine we suggest pairing with them!



Grilled Reuben Dogs from Kansas City

This dog hails from our own state, so it definitely needs a great Missouri wine to be paired with it. It's a classic dog that is topped sky high with corned beef and swiss. Then topped some more with caraway, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island Dressing. Because of the lighter styles of saurkraut and the Thousand Island dressing, along with the Swiss cheese, we think that our Vignoles wine would pair perfectly and that it's Mid straw color with olive green tone and flavorful bodied, peach, melon & citrus flavors would match exactly.

"Bulldog" Hot Dogs from Atlanta

In the Atlanta area, they like to top their hot dogs with a creamy, crunchy slaw. You can also add some spicy chili and mustard under the slaw for an extra boost of flavor! We think that our Chardonel would pair wonderfully with this dog. The light to medium straw color blends with the coleslaw, and the medium body, and fruity - toasted oak flavors balance out all of the flavors.

Chicago-Style Hot Dog

This may be one of the most popular styles of hot dog around, but that doesn't change that the iconic blend of flavors is absolutely delicious. A Chicago dog is topped with fresh tomato, big spears of pickle, hot peppers, sweet onion, and a vivid green relish. We think that our Syrah would pair wonderfully with the flavors in a Chicago dog. The aromas of currant, blackberry, and black pepper, along with the subtle vanilla oak is a great combo for this classic.

Sonoran from Tucson and Phoenix

The area is famous for this hot dog! It's first wrapped in smoky bacon, then topped with pinto beans, onion, mustard, mayo, and chopped tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. We're thinking that our Spring Red would taste delicious with this dog. The semi sweet flavor would pair well with spice in this dog. plus the velvet finish and hint of black cherry would be nice as well.


Pair Your Wine Right!

Ice Cream & Wine Pairings to Keep You Cool🍷🍨

If you haven't noticed - it's hot out there! Summer came in hot and heavy, the temps rose fast, and they've stayed that way for a while now. We may not see a break in sight yet - but that doesn't mean we can't make the most of summer! Here are a few different types of wine you'll want to stick in your fridge before raiding the freezer for your favorite ice cream!


Ice Cream & Wine Pairings to Keep You Cool!

Nestle Drumstick - Chardonel

A little bit of chocolate, some salty peanuts, and fresh vanilla ice cream are the perfect combination on a hot and sunny afternoon. Of course, if you want to make it better, you'll pull out a bottle of Seven Springs' Chardonel to pair with your Drumstick! Our medium-bodied wine pairs perfectly with this type of ice cream because of the fruity, toasted oak flavors.

Snickers Ice Cream Bar - Syrah

There's something summery about snickers anyway, but when it's in ice cream form - now we're talking! Pair that with our Syrah wine to get the perfect combination of chocolate, with a little bit of current and blackberry, black pepper, and a very subtle vanilla oak finish. The flavors will be divine.

Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich - Spring Fling

It's like the summer days when you were a kid - except skinny ... because the biggest difference in the last 20 years is our metabolism! The best part is, you can now pair your favorite childhood ice cream snack with wine - our Spring Fling wine to be exact. This light, white wine has subtle hints of fruity, citrus, and lychee flavors that complement the rich chocolatey tones in the ice cream.

Creamsicle - Dry Vignoles

There's something about a creamsicle that screams summer. Whether it's the citrus flavors, the cold ice cream bar, or maybe a combination of both. Pair that with our Dry Vignoles, and find a magical combination! The dry wine works wonders with the sweet creamsicle, and the aromas of tangerine and oranges, plus the crisp vibrant acidity precedes a long and refreshing finish.

Klondike Bar - Spring Red

What would YOU do for a Klondike bar? Drink Spring Red of course! This really is a no-brainer, but the rich chocolate and ice cream pairs wonderfully with our semi-sweet red wine. The hints of black cherry works wonder with the Klondike bar, and the velvet finish is perfection.


Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Bar - Blushing Springs

Looking for a delicious summer treat? Strawberry has a magical way of saying "hello summer," and you want to know what else loves summer? Blushing Springs Wine is the perfect way to enjoy the summer because it's a refreshing sparkling wine! Plus, the sweet berry aromas and the semi-sweet finish will pair wonderfully with this ice cream.

Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia - Norton

Ben & Jerry's, it's basically everyone's best friend - but when you combine it with our Norton, you'll find that you have the best friend group ever! Our Norton wine has a deep plum color, which will pair deliciously with Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia,  and the full-bodied, spicy smooth persistent finish will be superb.

Edy's Mint Chocolate Chip - Moscato Sparkling

Finally, a fan favorite when you're looking for a wine that will aim to please, Edy's Mint Chocolate Chip. If you want to pair the perfect wine with it, try our Muscato Sparkling. It's a light wine with a small hint of fruity and citrus flavors. They will bring out the warm chocolate notes in the ice cream, and the sparkling aspect will be a perfect mix for summer.


Cool Off at the Winery!

Our Missouri winery has the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks, and it's cool and refreshing - waiting for you! We also have a really fun summer surprise up our sleeve for you, too.
