Warm up this Winter with Harvest & Soul-Catering & Events Mulled Wine
Sweet, spicy and soul warming, Mulled Wine is a true winter favourite.

The addition of spices over the years was said to promote health and boost immunity during the winter months. These days, Mulled Wine is a popular addition to all kinds of winter events (and is a Harvest & Soul- Catering & Events team favourite!).
Served for pre-dinner drinks with a decadent cheese board or roasted chestnuts and garnished with cinnamon sticks and slices of orange, Harvest & Soul- Catering & Event's delicious Mulled Wine is the perfect addition to winter parties.
