Favorites: Wine

December 21, 2012


We are headed out of town this afternoon for Christmas. We’re heading Colorado to be with family and crossing our fingers for a White Christmas–which would be a real treat coming from Southern California. Our family enjoys wine (a lot!) and I’ve listed some of our favorites. I highly recommend one of these next time you’re looking to try something new. Any of these would be a welcome addition to a holiday meal or party.

1. Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine (extra special because we have been to the winery in Sonoma)

2. Moet & Chandon Champagne (what we popped this year when we decorated our tree)

3. Toasted Head Chardonnay (this is our favorite everyday wine)

4. La Crema Chardonnay, Sonoma (a newer discovery for me)

5. Trefethen Chardonnay (my absolute favorite)

6. Cakebread Chardonnay (for special occasions)

7. Trefethen Cabernet (I’m not big on reds, but I really like this one)

*I don’t like sweet wine, so these whites all tend to be pretty dry.
