You scream, I scream, we all scream for Sorbet! 

Yes, that’s right. The perfect frozen dessert made from our hand crafted En Primeur Winery Series Chile Merlot, frozen berries and a dollop of fresh whipped cream! This step up from your traditional ice cream will impress everyone.

First discovered in Italy, this cool combination of tangy and tart is now an international pleasure. Best when crafted fresh, by using your hand-crafted bottle of wine, imparting notes of red cherries, strong plum, then blending the addition of garden fresh or frozen summer berries. This sorbet is a classy addition to share with others!

Check out this quick and easy summer recipe below:


1 pound of fresh strawberries, chopped

1 pound of fresh blackberries

2 cups of sugar

1 1/4 cups of dry red wine (we suggest using En Primeur Winery Series Chile Merlot)

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

1   1 inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

Whipped cream



Step 1: In a large saucepan combine the first eight ingredients. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until fruit softens and sugar is dissolved.

Step 2: Remove from heat; let mixture cool to room temperature. Remove ginger slices; discard.

Step 3: Working in batches, transfer wine mixture to a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Transfer blended mixture to a 13×9 inch dish or pan. Cover and freeze overnight.

Step 4: When ready to serve, scoop sorbet into wine glasses. Top with whipped cream and enjoy!
