Our team has highlighted a few seasonal selections below, with pairing suggestions to make holiday entertaining a breeze.  

 

The Classics:

2018 Unoaked Chardonnay 

This refreshing white is a crowd-pleaser perfect for a cocktail party or appetizers. Our Unoaked Chardonnay is steel fermented to maintain a fresh fruitiness and a crisp finish that clears the palate with every sip. Pair this bottle with rich, creamy cheese, crab dip, butternut squash soup or a seasonal salad. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

2017 Barbera

This full-bodied red wine is a favorite among wine lovers for its smooth texture and balance of fruit and acid. It’s an easy-drinking wine that’s perfect on its own, or when paired with roast turkey, root vegetables or potent blue cheese. You’ll taste lively raspberry and cherry with a slight sweet spice on the finish that lingers on the palate. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

 

Light and Bright:

2016 Dry Riesling

Our Dry Riesling highlights the subtle tropical notes and sweet aromatics classic to this wine, but with a bright acidity that can stand on its own or next to the richest of foods. Pair it with baked brie, mashed potatoes, or creamed spinach. 

2017 Sauvignon Blanc

This Sauvignon Blanc is one of our most food-friendly wines, with a bright acidity that compliments a myriad of dishes. You’ll notice aromas of tropical fruits with melon, lemongrass and a touch of warm spice on the palate. Pair it with seafood, salad, roast vegetables or a light pasta dish.

 

The Heavy Hitters:

2017 Barrel Chardonnay

Our take on a California Chardonnay is barrel fermented for smooth, oaky aromas. This wine is packed with flavors of pear, stone fruit and butterscotch, with a lively acidity that balances all that richness. Pair it with buttery biscuits, deep fried turkey or creamy pasta. 

2015 Zinfandel

Nothing screams “holidays” more than a big, bold red wine that will warm you up from the inside. Our Zin comes from the renowned Lodi region of California, where old vines lead to concentrated, jammy flavors of blackberry, dried fig and cocoa. Pair it with candied yams, roast beef or even dessert! It makes an excellent accompaniment to dark chocolate. Find it in our Thanksgiving Bundle!

 

For the Host:

2015 Blanc de Blancs

When you want to bring a bottle of something special for the host or hostess, a Champagne-style sparkling in a great way to say “thank you.” Bright, crisp and lively with notes of citrus and golden apple, our sparkling wine is a special treat that pairs with just about anything. Enjoy it as an aperitif or an end-of-meal toast with dessert. 

2013 Reserve Merlot

With grapes sourced from the North Fork region of Long Island, this bottle represents one of the best years of grape-growing. Lush flavors of plum, cherry and mocha are complemented by smooth tannins, and a subtle earthiness that comes from age. This is a special bottle your loved ones will treasure!
