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.
