Gluhwein Recipe Brown Brothers

Gluhwein (Mulled Wine)

Whether the occasion is après ski, Christmas in July or a bonfire when camping in the bush, Gluhwein (Mulled Wine) is simply joy in a glass – and we think our Cienna makes the perfect blend. Enjoy!


The Wine

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle of your favourite Brown Brothers Cienna

The Rest

  • 3/4 cup water (or orange juice)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 fresh orange
  • 10 whole cloves


  1. Combine the water, sugar, and cinnamon stick in a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
  2. Slice the orange and push the cloves into the slices and place in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
  3. Pour in the Cienna, and heat until steaming but not boiling. Serve hot in mugs or jars that have been preheated in warm water (cold jars will break).
