When fall rolls around, there are cozy nights in, holidays to enjoy, and time with friends and family who are back from their summer vacations, which makes it the perfect time to entertain! And what goes better with entertaining than wine? Our fall wine list is made up of rich wines to sip and savor, wines that pair well with hearty soups and other fall foods, and wines that give you an excuse to cheers. Here’s what we will be enjoying this season:
White wine lovers will be happy to hear you don’t have to stow away your chilled favorites for next summer. Hold onto summer a bit longer with this Sauvignon Blanc that boasts aromas of grapefruit, passionfruit and other tropical fruits. It’s a household favorite year-round but its notes of cranberry give a nod to the fall season.
With a combo of 2 of our favorite grapes – Cabernet and Syrah, it’s like Justin Winery created this incredible Paso Robles with us in mind. It’s really rich, making it perfect for a hearty fall dinner party, and it’s just soooooo good.
Speaking of Cab… Craftwork Cabernet Sauvignon is delicious and really affordable! We always pick up 2 bottles during the 5cent wine sale at Bevmo :). And when you’re at TJ’s, another favorite is Ravage Cabernet. Flavors of dark berries with vanilla and mocha to make the wine a perfect pairing for hearty and comfort-food dishes.
Any other Argentine Malbec fans out there? This one, from the Mendoza wine region in Argentina is the perfect bottle to bring out for your Thanksgiving/Friendsgiving celebrations as it pairs well with sweet and savory dishes and meats and has a semi-mild flavor. Plus, at $14 a bottle, it doesn’t hurt to always have a bottle on hand for impromptu gatherings.
