This holiday season, I’ve partnered up with one of my favorite stores for party supplies aka dranksss to help you guys pick out the best wines to take to your holiday parties! Toast Wine & Beverage is the best for one, because they’ve been voted #1 in our area for like 10 years, for two, because they have a ton of selection and for three, because it’s super cute inside and doesn’t seem like some sketchy, run down liquor store, lol.
Also, they so sweetly donated an amazing bottle of bourbon to my Susan G. Komen 3-Day Giveaway to help me raise money to fight breast cancer. #blessyall
Nonetheless, now to the goods. I spent some time shopping with the staff to find the perfect wines to take to your holiday parties. They’ve given me three really delicious options depending on what type of wine you like best. Each of these three bottles is really reasonably price and also is sure to be a crowd pleaser at your Christmas or New Year’s get-togethers!
This medium-bodied, Sangiovese-blend red wine is a bit of a chameleon, as it changes ever so slightly year-to-year because of Mother Nature and the grapes themselves. With one sip of this SIENA, you’ll instantly feel like you’ve been transported to the hills of Tuscany.
In the heart of Italy’s lush Prosecco region, the La Marca Trevigiana zone grows the revered glera grapes they use to make a delicately flavored wine. With delicate, golden straw color and lively effervescence, this Prosecco is one of the best with aromas of fresh citrus, honey and white flowers. The palate is fresh and clean, with flavors of ripe lemon, green apple and grapefruit framed by mineral undertones.
Intense black purple color. On the nose, its aromas of plum, spices and red pepper stand out while delicate notes of mint can also be perceived. In the mouth, it is a very harmonious and balanced wine, with round tannins and a long finish.
I hope this makes all of y’all’s holiday preparations just a little bit easier!
