You Can Now Buy Jalepeno-Infused Wine

Here's where you can get it.

First, we had jalapeno margaritas. Then, we had jalapeno Bloody Marys, and jalapeno craft beers.

And now? We have jalapeno-infused wine.

Yes, finally! If you love your wine a little sweet and a little spicy, then this is going to be your new favorite wine. The wine comes from Galena Cellars, a winery in Galena, Ill., which was named best winery in the state of Illinois by Yahoo! Travel in 2016.

Galena Cellars has more than 40 varieties of grapes and produces 60,000 gallons of wine annually, but it’s their jalapeno wine that has people talking right now.

Galena Cellars

The white wine is infused with serrano and jalapeno peppers, giving it a slightly spicy kick. Galena Cellars says it’s perfect served chilled with appetizers like cheese and crackers, or used as a base for another cocktail that packs a spicy punch, such as a Bloody Mary:

If you want to try Galena Cellars Jalapeno Wine but you don’t live in the area, you can purchase a bottle online. The cost is $15.99 before shipping.

If you are considering making an order, you might also want to check out some of Galena Cellar’s other unique wines. The also offer Rhubarb Wine ($14.99), Peach Wine ($14.99), Blackberry Wine ($14.99) and Spiced Apple Wine ($14.99). How perfect does that last one sound for fall?

Galena Cellars isn’t the only winery that has delved into jalapeno-infused wines.

Potter Wine

Potter Wines, for example, sells Jalapeno Wine, Chipotle Jalapeno Wine and an incredible concoction known as Jalapeno Wine Lemonade (which also comes in Strawberry and Watermelon flavors). As the name suggests, this unique drink is made with jalapeno wine and lemonade. (Really, that’s not a far cry from a sangria-like wine mix that’s popular in Spain and Uruguay.)

And some of these beverages have inspired the makers to give them names that are, well, a little edgy!

Art + Farm Wine

Take, for example, St. Mayhem’s habanero and chili-infused Sauvignon Blanc, which has a rather sassy name: SPCY LIL FKR. You can order four 250-ml cans for $24 online.
