August 28th is National Red Wine day, but it’s always #WineTime here at ROW DTLA. Read on to discover all the fun red wine finds, gift boxes and a guilt-free wine-infused dessert at the Collective!
Rapp Red Wine Frojo Sorbet
Frojo. A combo of “frozen” and “rojo” (“red” in Spanish) is about to level up your brunch game. Rappahannock Oyster Bar’s newest addition to its menu—the red wine Frojo sorbet—is a blend of Jardesca Red Apertivo, strawberries, honey and rose water that’s so good, it may just ruin traditional sangria for you forever. Served up dessert-style as a smooth sorbet, this icy cool treat is equivalent to one glass of red wine. So yes, you can definitely have two servings.
And while you’re indulging Frojo-style, don’t forget to pair one of Rappahannock’s signature lobster rolls with some healthy sips of Bonterra’s canned Young Red—an aromatic blend of red roses, fresh fig, berries and orange peel.
