BE THE LIFE OF THE PARTY
Bringing Wine as a Hostess Gift
‘Tis the season for holiday cheer…neighborhood block parties, office parties, bunco parties, family parties…there are so many places to go and so much to celebrate! How do you ensure you get an invite next year? Bring a bottle of something amazing!
But what to bring? Selecting a wine for a holiday get together doesn’t have to be tough…or break the bank. “There are tons of great options out there,” says Winemaker Dana Stemmler. The key is to know your audience. “Depending on the crowd, there are a couple go-to wines I always choose when bringing a hostess gift.”
Dana believes that bubbles are a win-win for all. “Everyone loves a sparkling wine, and the ‘pop’ of that cork can really liven up a party!”
When the group is a bit more serious about wine, there are a couple red wines that Dana likes to focus on. “A classically made Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir is hard to beat when there are wine lovers involved. They appreciate the nuance of the wines and want to learn more.”
A red blend can also please a wide range of guests, with the differing varietals having a little something for everyone. “Red blends are intriguing and fun,” says Dana. “And they pair well with so many different foods.”
But which ones to buy? Wine aisles are littered with choices. Our best advice: get to know your local wine steward. They can help point you in the right direction if you have a general idea of what you are looking for and the price you want to pay.
Wine clubs, like our Bogle Bandwagon, also give customers access to special bottlings at special discounts. And often, the wines can be delivered right to your door.
Enjoy those holiday parties out there folks…and always enjoy responsibly!
