Dessert Wine. Literally.

This may very well be the Holy Grail for wine lovers with a sweet tooth. I’m talking about Wine Cellar Sorbet, a company out of New York that’s churning finished wines into delicious treats. The wines used in each sorbet are hand selected by the company’s “Sorbet Sommelier” (Um, do you think they’re hiring?).

Current flavor offerings include:

•Champagne N.V. California
•Riesling 2005 New York
•Rosé N.V. New York
•Sangira Rojo N.V. Spain
•Pinot Noir 2005 New York
•Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 California

Unfortunately, Wine Cellar Sorbet isn’t sold in Chicago (yet), but you can have your order shipped overnight on dry ice. Available in packs of 4, 6 and 12. Just don’t overdo it—the sorbet contains up to 5% alcohol by volume.
