DI-Wine: Bottle Dispenser

September 26, 2023

Want a new kitchen gadget utilizing wine bottles? Check out the DI-Wine Bottle Dispenser.

Supplies:

  • 1 Wine Bottle
  • 1 Stopper Spout
  • Olive Oil or Dish Soap

Directions:

1. Enjoy a bottle of your favorite Missouri wine with your friends!

2. Rinse your bottle with dish soap and hot water.

3. Remove the wine label and allow the bottle to dry! This can be a fairly tedious step, but we did the work for you! Here are the 3 easiest ways to remove a wine label:

  • Use baking soda:
    • Add 5-10 tablespoons of baking soda to a bucket of warm water
    • Soak the bottle in the mixture for 30 minutes
    • Use a utility blade to gently remove the label
  • Use steamer:
    • Fill the steamer with water and turn it on
    • Hold the bottle over the steam to loosen the adhesive 
    • Use a utility blade to remove adhesive from the bottle
  • Use OxiClean:
    • Fill the bucket with water and 1/4 cup of OxiClean
    • Submerge the wine bottle in the mixture 
    • Soak up to 8 hours
    • Use a utility blade to remove the wine label and adhesive 

4. Fill the clean bottle with your choice of dish soap, olive oil, or anything else you frequently use in the kitchen!

5. Put a spout into the neck of the bottle.

6. (OPTIONAL) Paint your wine bottle dispenser to match your kitchen décor and coat it with Mod Podge!

Game Plan: Celebrate the Wine Way

September 21, 2023

Down, set, hut. It’s officially football season and we are kicking off with all you need to celebrate when your team is on the road. Hosting a fun celebration to watch your team play an away game is the perfect opportunity to try new recipes, make fun wine tails, and pair delicious snacks with wine!

We all know here in Missouri, we love football. Well, football and of course wine too. But even more than football and wine, we love food! Hosting a football season soiree is a great time to try out new recipes and feed a crowd. We have gathered three recipes for you to serve at your next football function: Catawba Pulled Pork, White Wine Carnitas, and Vidal Blanc Chicken & Cheese Dip.

Wine-tails are a great way to serve your favorite Missouri wine in a unique way. Wine-tails can be enjoyed for any occasion, but we picked these as the perfect drinks to share with your friends during football season: Wine-Rita’s, Concord Daiquiri, Vidal Blanc Punch.

We have the perfect Missouri Wines to pair with your go-to football snacks. Our game day snacks range from sweet to spicy dishes, all with their own wine varietal to pair with.

Jalapeno Poppers + Vignoles

Veggies & Humus + Seyval Blanc

Sliders + Chambourcin

Pulled Pork + Concord (mix in some delicious Missouri BBQ sauce too)
