Highlights: Mulled wine is as much a part of the cold season as snow and Christmas markets. When preparing or heating it, however, you should make sure that it does not boil. Mulled wine has a very strong flavor that you might otherwise notice in your tea and other beverages for a long time. The German Wine Institute points out that excessive heat causes the fine fruit aroma to be lost. In addition, the alcohol begins to evaporate at a temperature of 78 degrees.

Mulled wine is as much a part of the cold season as snow and Christmas markets. When preparing or heating it, however, you should make sure that it does not boil.

With the onset of cold, the desire for a special hot drink often increases: mulled wine. Snowfall, freezing temperatures and Christmas markets are inextricably linked to the famous hot wine. But the winter drink can also be prepared in your own four walls without any problems.

However, many shy away from preparing mulled wine themselves and instead fall back on the ready-made variants from the supermarket. Then it's just a matter of opening the bottle or tetra pack, decanting the wine and heating it. While most mulled wine enthusiasts use a pot for this, some wonder if there isn't a faster method – with a kettle, for example? After all, cooking pasta in the kettle should also work.

The basic answer is yes, you can – but it's important to note that mulled wine is not allowed to boil. The German Wine Institute points out that excessive heat causes the fine fruit aroma to be lost. In addition, the alcohol begins to evaporate at a temperature of 78 degrees.

Reheating mulled wine in a kettle: this is how it works

As the name suggests, the kettle is primarily intended for boiling water. Theoretically, however, other liquids can also be heated in it. However, the device is only suitable for mulled wine under certain conditions:

  • Mulled wine should not be cooked under any circumstances. If you have a modern kettle with temperature control, set the temperature so that it does not exceed the 100-degree mark. Around 70 degrees is ideal.
  • You can also heat the mulled wine in a conventional kettle without a temperature regulator. However, be careful to always stand by so as not to miss the right time.
  • Clean the kettle thoroughly after use. Mulled wine has a very strong flavor that you might otherwise notice in your tea and other beverages for a long time.

If you follow these simple rules, you can actually heat mulled wine in the kettle, saving yourself some time and work with the pot.
