Turn your holiday meal leftovers into an easy dish that you can enjoy any time and pairs great with von Stiehl Cranberry Wine. Each bottle of Cranberry wine is jam-packed with cranberries. In fact, if you like dry red wines, you need to give this one a try, you might be surprised at how much you enjoy it. The cranberries in this wine come to us from Wisconsin Rapids and are hot-pressed to extract the most color and flavor. The cranberry juice is then fermented in stainless steel to create a more intense, tart, but balanced wine. This is why von Stiehl Cranberry wine is a special treat with your holiday meals and leftovers.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups shredded chicken or turkey
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 cup firm red grapes, cut in half
