Mulled wine is a really international phenomena. In the Netherlands they call it Bishop's Wine, the French know it vin chaud. Warmed wine is drunk across many parts of Northern Italy where it is usually known as vin brulé and even in Japan there is a form of sake that is both heated and spiced with ginger, it is called shoga zake. The biggest European consumers of warmed winter wine know this Christmas drink as: wino grzane (Poland), glintweinIn (Russia) and Glühwein in Germany.

Mulled wine, as the name suggests is a warm red wine with fruit, spices and sugar. Mulled wine is a lovely way to greet guests when they arrive at your home on a cold winters day or to share with the family around an open fire at Christmas. I like to use a good Burgundy to make mulled wine although any reasonable red wine can be used.
Ingredients: Serves 6
