Happy almost new year! I hope you all have some really fun plans tonight. Jack and I are going to have a pretty quiet night at home (because, omg, it’s freezing out!), but the wine will be flowing, nonetheless. Here are some bottles we’ve been enjoying recently. All are under $16(!), and are available at wine-carrying Whole Foods Stores.
Globerati Sauvignon Blanc (pictured), $7.99
From the Central Valley of Chile, this zesty white has hints of grapefruit and green apple. (Also, a super cute bottle design).
Pizzolato Pinot Grigio (pictured), $9.99
An organically grown Italian white with flavors of stone fruit. This one’s light, but not too sweet. A food-friendly wine that would pair well with seafood and vegetables.
Leyenda del Castillo Rioja, $10.99
With bright, sunny fruit flavors like ripe cherries, this Spanish red has a lingering, well-balanced finish.
H&G Priorat, $14.99
This one’s our favorite of the group. It’s a smooth Spanish red with dark fruit flavors. A versatile food-friendly wine.
Charles and Charles Merlot (pictured), $13.99
A hearty full bodied rich & elegant red. (total bargain).
Ring in the new year with something sparkly:
Presto Prosecco $10.99
This one’s my go-to sparkler, (a great value for the price). Not too sweet not too dry, flavors of orange blossom & honey.
De Chanceny Cremant de Loire Brut Rose $15.99
This pale pink sparkling rosé is made from cabernet franc grapes with bright, citrus aromas and green apple, lemon and cranberry flavors.
Special thanks to the Whole Foods wine team who kindly gave us a bunch of wines to try.
