Aldo Sohm’s Mulled Wine

When the wine director of the Michelin three-starred restaurant Le Bernardin shares a wine recipe, you know it’s going to be good. Sohm oversees a wine collection of 15,000 bottles made up of 900 wine selections. He is also the face of Aldo Sohm Wine Bar, a casual, convivial spot just steps away from Le Bernardin where guests can enjoy his approachable, meticulously crafted wine list.

Here, he details what goes into his favorite mulled wine recipe, the perfect cozy beverage for the fall season. The taste is delicious and your home will be filled with the fragrant scents of autumn.
