Things are crazy right now. You're stuck at home. You're alone. Have some fun with an at-home wine tour.
Badger Liquor Certified Specialist of Wine, Lynzi Ball has selected the perfect bottle for each room of your tour.
Something that goes with EVERYTHING!
Stores have been raided, so we're hoping you're fully stocked!
We recommend a Sparkling Wine. Bubbles are so versatile, and can add a refreshing element to all meals while also setting up your palate for any food.
Lynzi's Pick: Campo Viejo Brut Cava Reserva
These bubbles are both clean and fresh. If you love Champagne, but don’t want to crack open an expensive bottle to enjoy with a casual meal in front of the TV, Cava is your wine.
