Time to Break Out the Heavy Hitter
Insurrection Red Blend is a big wine with a huge ABV (Alcohol By Volume). Only one glass needed to handle your Dad’s repetitive stories and Mom's thoughts on the 2020 election. Plus, at $12 a bottle, you can bring enough for the whole family.INSURRECTION RED BLEND
Keeping It Kosher
Showing that you care about holiday customs goes a very long well when it comes to spreading holiday cheer. Recanati Yasmin Red is a certified Kosher wine that is a lovely, harmonious, flavorful red blend that is primarily Cabernet based. L’Chiam! $12RECANATI YASMIN RED
He or She Is There And Ready to Complain
Listen, when it comes to family gatherings, you can’t please everyone, but you sure can try with B-Side Cabernet Sauvignon. Rare, unconventional and classic. This Cabernet is a people pleaser and perfect for those that like to stand out in a different way. $20B Side Cabernet Sauvignon
Because You Should
Groth Winery. Like your boss, this array of wines shows a ‘commitment to quality’. These are big, bold wines that will surely be appreciated, and put you in the running for that promotion! Depending on how much brown nosing you're going for, bottles range from $25-$120.GROTH NAPA CHARDONNAY
The True Christmas Miracle
Sometimes friends around the holidays are your one saving Christmas grace. Reward your besties with the gift of bubbles: Chloe Prosecco! It is wrapped cute in a Christmas bow, and perfect in mimosas, or on its own! $17CHLOE PROSECCO
Keeping It Low Key
Muddy Boot Winery. Unpretentious and delicious. I particularly like their Chenin Blanc. Stick the wine outside in the snow to chill down quickly while you make a fire and get cozy. $12MUDDY BOOT CHENIN BLANC
Because She's the OG
Roscato Rosso Dolce. Light, sweet, tastes like raspberries and is fizzy. Grandma will appreciate taking the bottle to her next Bridge game. The screw top is an added bonus. No need for a wine glass, any sipping cup will do. $12ROSCATO ROSSO DOLCE
