When it comes to Easter, the perfect celebration always includes a lot of great food, eggs, faith, and spirits in my family, and by spirits I mean alcohol. Mimosas, beer, cocktails, we love enjoying them all with the people we love the most in this world. To make this Easter even better, I just found the perfect thing to add to this year's part menu...wine slushies!

Caledonia Winery Is Hosting a Pop-Up Event This Easter Weekend

When it comes to wine, I am far from being an aficionado, but nothing screams Spring or Summer more to me than wine slushies. If you've never been to McEachran Homestead Winery before, which happens to be the only winery in Boone County, this Saturday, April 16, will be the PERFECT time to check it out! Here's why...

Live music, wine, and tacos?!? Count me in!

Besides having a great variety of wine slushie flavors available this Saturday, this event at McEachran Winery will be a great place to take out-of-town family and guests for a wonderful afternoon of fun.

McEachran Winery also has a full list of bottled wines to take home and enjoy on Easter. Current wines available include:

  • Edelweiss: "Soft white with citrus notes"
  • Marechal Foch: "A medium-bodied semi-sweet red"
  • Triple Berry Wine: "Fruit wine blend of blueberries, red raspberries and blackberries"
  • Peach: "Light-bodied, refreshingly sweet"
  • Spice – "Our delicious mulled wine (served warm or cold)"
