Vin brûlè, also known as Vino brulè or Brulè, is a traditional Italian hot spiced wine that is popular during the winter months. It is commonly found in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, specifically in towns and communes such as Bologna, Modena, Parma, and Ravenna. This delightful beverage can be enjoyed at various stores and shops in these areas, including Enoteca Italiana in Bologna, Vino e Sapori in Modena, and La Cantina di Parma in Parma.

To make Vin brûlè, you will need a bottle of red wine, sugar, cloves, cinnamon sticks, orange peel, and lemon peel. The wine is heated gently with the sugar and spices until it reaches a simmer. It is then left to infuse for about 15 minutes before being strained and served hot. This aromatic and warming drink is perfect for cozy evenings or festive gatherings.

Vin brûlè has been recognized with the PAT (Traditional Agri-Foodstuffs) recognition, which highlights its traditional and cultural significance. The specifications for Vin brûlè include the use of specific ingredients, such as red wine, sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and citrus peels.
