In anticipation of the weekend, we’re turning our minds to one of everyone’s favorite subjects: WINE! Whether you’re pouring a glass at home, entertaining friends, or bringing a host/hostess gift to a party, we all have our go-to brands. So we thought we’d clue you in on some of our favorite bottles in case you were looking to branch out a little and try something new. With this list, we’ve also kept in mind brands in a certain price range (only one is over $20!) and several that you should be able to easily grab at the store. Check them out and let us know a bottle or two that you love in the comments below!
Relax Riesling (under $10) – I’m a big Riesling fan and love opening up this affordable option while “relaxing” at home.
La Marca Prosecco ($13) – Popping the cork on this bottle always feels celebratory and I like having it on hand for special occasions.
J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon ($17) – My go-to red never disappoints whether sipping during or after a delicious dinner.
Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon ($33) – This great mid-priced Cab would make an excellent host or hostess gift as it is a little pricier (but worth it!).
Foris Dry Gewurztraminer ($13) – A Gewurztraminer that isn’t too sweet, but crisp and refreshing. Plus, who doesn’t love saying the word “Gewurztraminer”?
MacMurray Pinot Noir ($17) – A yummy California red that is perfect to pull out for an intimate dinner.
Eroica Riesling ($20) – This bottle opens up with a fresh taste. We love a good Riesling and this one breaks status quo!
Dachshund Riesling ($15) – I may have liked this initially because of the brand name (I have two dachshunds), but I genuinely love this wine! And the name is just a cute bonus.
Dreaming Tree Cabernet Sauvignon ($9) – A delicious red under $10 that you can bring out to enjoy at dinnertime.
Cooper’s Hawk Viognier ($18) – A sweeter white that I love picking up whenever I visit the winery/restaurant chain, Cooper’s Hawk.
Tabor Hill Classic Demi-Sec ($8) – Another sweet white that has been on the White House wine list!
