Picture from:

Ice-cream and wine, two of life’s greatest pleasures, combined in a glass? It sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? Well, it’s time to bring that dream to life with the innovative and deliciously decadent Ice-Cream Red Wine Float!

Before you raise an eyebrow at this unconventional pairing, we assure you, it’s a match made in heaven. The creaminess of vanilla ice-cream wonderfully balances the tannins of a robust red wine, and the result is a delectable dessert that you won’t forget. And our choice of wine for this treat? James Charles 1913, of course.

Why James Charles 1913?

Our 1913 Bordeaux Blend is a harmonious blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot that carries lush notes of dark fruit and subtle tannins. These elements create the perfect foil to vanilla ice cream’s sweetness, resulting in a sophisticated and refreshing treat that’s absolutely delightful.
