August’s Wine of the Month: Dastardly Dragon Fruit

August’s Wine of the Month: Dastardly Dragon Fruit

Wine from a cactus? Really! Dragon fruit, also known as pitaya, is the fruit of a species of cactus native to Mexico, Central and South America, and it’s the main fruit in our August wine of the month.

The dragon fruit is mildly sweet — it’s not going to make you pucker up — but when paired with the flavor of raspberry and White Shiraz wine, it creates a tartly sweet wine perfect with vanilla ice cream or as a lazy, August day treat to while away the last few weeks of summer. Get yourself a bottle or two: Buy one, get one half off all August-long.

Also, the dragon fruit reminds me of a fascinator a British Royal might wear. What do you think?
