Lemon Wine

The wine that started it all, the star of the show, LEMON! Maydelle lemon wine is made with purely lemons, never a grape in sight. Our lemon wine has been a fan favorite since its creation. Bursting with a tangy lemony scent, the lemon wine is far from tart though, reading more as a sweet lemonade.

Check out these quick recipes to enjoy throughout the season:

  • Spritzers- Grab a chilled glass, add some ice, a few ounces of our Lemon wine, and top it off with a fizzy seltzer water, club soda, fresh squeezed lemon, and slices.
  • Mix It!- A Maydelle mad scientist concoction; if you can get your hands on our Elderberry wine, mixing it in a 1:1 ratio with lemon wine will make a summer sangria!
  • In a 1:2 ratio, add our strawberry wine for a sweet and citrusy strawberry lemonade. 1 Part Maydelle Strawberry wine to 2 Parts Maydelle Lemon wine.
  • Blackberry lemonade is customer created concoction that doesn’t disappoint either; 2 Parts Maydelle Texas Blackberry wine to 1 Part Maydelle Lemon wine.
  • Lemon Cake with Maydelle Lemon Wine-:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice, about 1/2 lemon
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup Maydelle Lemon Wine

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a 9×5-inch (or 8×4-inch) loaf pan.
In a medium bowl combine the flour, baking powder, lemon zest, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using an electric mixer), cream the butter and sugar together at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 4-6 minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed.
With the mixer running on low-speed, add the eggs one at a time, then beat in the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Beat on medium-high speed until combined.
With the mixer on low, add about one-third of the flour mixture and mix until almost combined, then add half the buttermilk and mix until just combined. Repeat with another third of flour mixture and then the last half of the buttermilk, ending with the last third of the flour. Beat until just incorporated.
Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 45-55 minutes until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick comes out mostly clean with only a couple moist crumbs. Baking times vary, so keep an eye on yours.
Let the cake cool for about 15 minutes in the pan. Stir together the lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar for the lemon syrup. (1/4 cup lemon juice, about 1 lemon
3 Tbsp powdered sugar)

Carefully invert the loaf pan, and transfer the cake to a cooling rack, then brush the syrup on the cake while it’s still warm. Allow cake to cool completely.

Lime Wine

If you’re a margarita fan, you’ve made it to the right place. Our Lime Wine is made from fresh limes and juice, that’s it. Without the dryness of grape wine, this lime wine is the perfect blend of sweet and tart, paving a path to Margaritaville that will have you forgetting just how tasty tequila is (well, you can add some tequila to this too).

Our Lime Wine also makes a great Margarita Mix substitute!

Peach Wine

Blackberry Wine

From the rich soils of Far East Texas, our blackberry wine hails. Maydelle Texas Blackberry wine is a growing fan favorite, and it’s easy to see why! Sweet, tart, and a slightly peppery finish to tease the pallet. Just like a fresh blackberry straight off the vine, seeds included.

  • Blackberry Compote-
  • 2 Cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 Cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Maydelle Texas Blackberry wine
  • 1 Teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt

Combine blackberries, sugar, lemon juice, salt and the Texas Blackberry wine in a saucepan. Toss to coat and let sit for 5 minutes.

Bring berry mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until sauce has reduced and thickened slightly, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm, or refrigerate for later use. Mixture will thicken further as it cools.

Add a schmear to your favorite morning toast, or enjoy on top of some vanilla ice cream.
