If there’s one thing I think we can all agree upon here, it’s that coffee is life. Especially when you’ve been wrangling kids since 6 AM and need to make it through the day with both eyes open. Of course, when it comes to coveted beverages, wine also deserves a special shout-out for providing us with some much-needed chill at the end of a long, hard day.

But what if I told you that you could soon have both of your favorite bevvies at once? As in, right in the same glass.

Thanks to Apothic Red Wines, a wine infused with cold-brew coffee will be coming to a glass near you this weekend, with its release of Apothic Brew on April 1.

Yep — HAPPY EASTER, FOLKS!

“Apothic is no stranger to creating interesting new blends — from the launch of the distinctive category leader Apothic Red to our smooth Apothic Crush and our most recent hit, Apothic Inferno, a red blend aged in whiskey barrels,” said Christine Jagher, Apothic’s Director of Marketing, in a press release from the company. “We’ve always sought to break the mold to bring our fans products w e know they w ill love. Apothic Brew is a game changer that offers the best of both worlds — cold brew and wine — and I can’t wait for people to try it.”

Um, I can’t wait to try it, either.

Granted, some beverage combos aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. (I mean, a few years back I tried the Diet-Coke-and-wine trend people were talking about, and it was a pretty sad letdown.) But hey, so far 2018 has blessed us with Girl Scout cookie-flavored Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, so let’s not knock it ’til we’ve tried it.

According to the company, cold brew coffee utilizes “more coffee grounds than traditional coffee, requiring a significantly longer and more delicate steep” — which apparently is what helps give it that “smooth texture” And when combined with a lush red wine, “the result is a taste that captures the smooth mouth feel and velvety chocolate notes of cold brew with the juicy blackberry characteristics of a dark red wine.”

SIGN ME UP.

“Last year during the long hours of harvest, I joined the cold brew craze myself,” said Deb Juergenson, Apothic Winemaker. “Quickly, I realized that many of the characteristics in cold brew coffee and red wine naturally complement each other. This led us to experiment with a few blends, eventually leading to the seamless creation of Apothic Brew, which brings together red fruit notes and subtle mocha essences of cold brew.”

Apothic Brew may only be available for a limited time (boo) beginning April 1, but it’s worth checking out if you’re into coffee and wine (and let’s be real — who isn’t?). Find a retailer near you.
