Yummy ! Wine Ice Cream…

 

Looking around the ice cream cooler recently in our local Byrne Dairy store, I came across Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream.  My first thought was  ” Wow ! What took them so long ? ”  After all, I live in the middle of the Finger Lakes Wine area, the second largest wine-producing area in the US.

I have had home-made wine flavored sorbet in a restaurant for dessert before, but have never seen mass-produced wine ice cream.  

Of course I had to visit Mercer’s website and found out they have been in business for many years, developing from many other companies and names.  They began a little North from my location and that may be why I had never come across this company in the past.

Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream is available in the following varietals:

When I visit ice cream stands this summer, I will be on the lookout for wine flavored ice cream.  The more I think about it, the more I believe that every home-made ice cream stand in the Finger Lakes should be selling at least one type of wine flavored ice cream.  

I did find that one of my favorite ice creams stands is making many, many flavors of Wine Sorbet.  I only remember one.  So here is the list from Cayuga Lake Creamery

    Mary,

    I like wine and I like ice cream. But not the two together. It’s just my preference but I know that this combo is enjoyed by many folks here in the Finger Lakes.
