  • Need a gift? Score an easy win by choosing a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir for red wines, or Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc for white wine options. Currently, these are by far the most popular grapes for US wine drinkers. 

  • Invited to a dinner? Grab sparkling wine or Champagne. The bubbles and acid in these wines pair with a wide range of foods. By the way, did you know that sparkling wines come in red, white, and rosé options?

  • Don't fear the beer! Similar to wine, craft beer offers many options for food pairings. Craft beer also comes in holiday specific special releases to add extra spirit to any occasion.

  • Kosher? There are a wide array of kosher wines available! You are not limited to sweet wines for your holiday celebrations.

  • Don't fear the BIG BOTTLES. Magnums (2 bottles of wine in 1 large bottle) are a great way to bring wine to any celebration with 6 or more guests. Bonus! They make a very impressive showpiece.
