Mulled Wine

By kpaul830 | Dec 19, 2019

Every year as the weather gets colder, Evelyn’s starts cooking up our popular Cranberry Mulled Wine. It is a favorite and we get asked often for our recipe. We don’t have secrets at Evelyn’s, so we thought we’d share! First of all, a little background on the origins of Mulled Wine. Mulled wine, or spiced…

The Shop Local Life

By kpaul830 | Feb 19, 2019

Before I owned Evelyn’s…I was one of those locals who seldom went downtown or thought about whether I was buying from a local business or not.

South of the Track

By kpaul830 | Nov 14, 2017

A week or so ago, a new customer stopped by to have some wine and dinner.  During our conversation, he mentioned that he seldom went “south of the track.”  What?  I hadn’t heard this before.  But, I’m guessing there are a lot of people who don’t venture south of the track, into downtown Buffalo.  If…
