Mulled Chardonnay

I am a hot tea drinker so the idea of a comforting mug of hot wine? umm, yes please. The mix of spices and fruits will make your house so cozy and sets a great atmosphere for a party.

Inspired by The Silent Patient, Alex Michaelides

This hot wine can also be quickly made on the stove; just follow all the instructions but simmer for 20-30 in a large pot. You don’t want to boil the liquid or the alcohol will evaporate.

Nerdy Fact

Did you know that Greeks invented mulled wine in the 2nd century? Any leftover wine that didn’t make it to the table from harvest they would dump spices in it and warm it up.

Hi friends!! I’m Jenni, The Nerdy Gourmet. I love books and I love food. Combining the two with a splash of travel has become my passion. I am a self taught cook/baker and I believe that everyone can cook from scratch! I’m here with recipes and Nerdy Tips to help along the way.  
I review books, mostly ‘read’ via audio, and I create recipes inspired by the story lines. Sometimes if I am deeply moved by a story, I will travel and try my best to experience the book- and bring you along via my blog! I provide all the photographs and content for the Nerdy Gourmet (unless otherwise noted).
