Here's everything you need to know about how Riboli Family Wines began, the Stella Rosa brand, and all the delicious Stella Rosa options, both wine and brandy!
How Riboli Family Wines Began
The Stella Rosa story goes back to 1917 when the Riboli family founded the San Antonio Winery, home of many, many wine brands on the market today. Over the years, four generations have made Riboli Family Wines what it is today.
Now, we all know Prohibition took a toll on the spirits industry. Many companies, both wine and liquor alike, closed after Prohibition in the 1920s. Thankfully, Riboli Family Wines survived that period of time and continued to find success for a century afterward.
Today, they have many vineyards across Rutherford, Napa Valley, Paso Robles, and Monterey.
Although the Riboli Family vineyards are in California, Stella Rosa does not come from the vineyards in the States.
Stella Rosa is imported from the top wine-producing country in the world. Italy! From the Asti region in Northern Italy, Stella Rosa is made with aromatic grapes that give Stella Rosa that distinct taste we all know and love.
When Stella Rosa Wine launched, Moscato D'Asti was the first wine to hit the market. Moscato D'Asti remains the flagship wine of Stella Rosa.
If you're looking for a wine with crisp and daring flavor or even classic semi-sweet flavors, Stella Rosa is the wine for you! They're undeniably, irresistible wines.
Stella Rosa Options
Stella Rosa has some fun flavors to choose from. They're delicious, refreshing, and bursting with flavor.
Let's get to know a few flavors in the lineup.
Stella Rosa Blueberry & Other Semi-Sparkling Wines
First, Stella Rosa Blueberry is the newest addition to the popular brand's collection. Stella Rosa Blueberry is an excellent option if you're looking for something fresh with a succulent blueberry flavor. It's a semi-sparkling wine that pairs beautifully with anything from fresh fruits to BBQ chicken.
Stella Rosa Blueberry is made from a combination of deep, dark grapes and the natural flavor of blueberry. Both flavors give you a full-bodied, rich wine with a subtle sweetness. You may automatically think that Stella Rosa Blueberry would be an overtly sweet wine, but it's balanced and approachable.
If you're fond of berries, Stella Rosa has more flavors, including Stella Rosa Blackberry, Berry, and Cranberry. And in case you're wondering, Stella Rosa Berry is a mixture of wild strawberry, blackberry, and red berry that pairs deliciously with "tuna burgers, smoked pork ribs, blueberry goats cheeses, and chocolate truffles."
If you want a more classic wine experience, Stella Rosa Black and Stella Rosa Red are great options from the Luxury Collection. Both Stella Rosa Black and Red have bright flavors and are semi-sweet and full-bodied.
Fully Sparkling Collection
If you prefer a fully sparkling option instead of semi-sparkling, there are many options to choose from.
Stella Rosa Imperiale Moscato is quite a popular item in the collection. It's bright with natural flavors of pear, peach, and wildflowers.
Stella Rosa Imperiale Pearl Lux, Black Lux, and Brachtet D'Acqui are great options if you're looking for a fully sparkling option.
According to Stella Rosa, the best way to enjoy fully sparkling wines is to refrigerate the bottle for three hours or put the bottle in an ice bath for 30 minutes! The colder, the better!
Stella Rosa makes it easy to enjoy a lovely sparkling wine without the alcohol content.
There are many non-alcoholic Stella Rosa wine flavors, so don't worry; you'll find something appealing to your taste buds. Enjoy them chilled or over ice any time of the day. They're made with fresh fruit flavors, and they're delightful!
