Blueberry – Sweet and all blueberries; enjoy with cheesecake, ice cream or sorbets

Montmorency Cherry – Sweet, with a tart cherry kick; fabulous with dark chocolate (500ml bottle)

You'll get to try their “Libby’s Holiday Rose” Mulled Wine while you are at the open house, made with their Mountain Rose wine. Buy a bottle while you are there and you can make it for the holidays!

1 large orange, sliced and cut into quarter sections
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
