Shake that bottle and make it *pop*

With the holidays upon us, it can be tricky to figure out what to serve your guests at your shindig.  I'm no wine connoisseur, but I'm learning so I figured I would share some wines that have been a success for me.


Sonoma Zinfandel
A flavorful, spicy wine that isn't too heavy and light on tannin, which makes it easy for most party guests to enjoy.

I also recommend a cabernet sauvignon.  Merlots are nice, but they are a little heavy and may not be appreciated by all of your guests.


Chateau Ste Michelle Riesling
This is a sweet but not too sweet riesling that's easy to find at any grocery store.

A pinot grigio is a nice choice as well, I also like sauvignon blanc.  I'm not a big fan of chardonnay.


Bugey Cerdon
A delicious pink sparkling wine that's just as delicious as the picture above implies.  People love this wine - don't sleep on it!

Sant'Evasio Brachetto de Acqui & Moscato D'Asti
The brachetto is a beautiful holiday red and it's  not as sweet as it's partner.  The moscato is an amazing wine I promise you all of your holiday guests will enjoy, even if they don't drink wine.  It's sweet and bubbly and fun.  It's dangerously drinkable.  Together they are a perfect pair of flavorful and sweet.

And the only way to open bubbly is to saber

If you don't normally buy wine and are set on bringing a bottle to the party, spend at least $10 - actually make it $12.  Nothing is worst than receiving a cheap bottle of wine from your guests! #firstworldproblems.  Or forgo the wine and bring something fun that you do know about - like truffles, toffee or heck, even a Chick-fil-A nugget tray.

Hopefully this wine list was helpful and inspired you guys!!!
