For those who prefer to ditch the hard seltzers and sip on something more complex (that doesn’t break the bank), look no further than this Santa Barbara Chardonnay from No Name. Vibrant flavors of yellow apple, wet stones, lemon zest, and a touch of vanilla lead to a ripe, palate-coating finish. Despite its medium-bodied weight, the wine remains balanced by ample amounts of zippy acidity. We can’t sing its praises enough! Sip with chips, dip, and all things snackable. For Golden Hour – 2020 Domaine Marc Portaz Vin de Savoie Apremont Golden hour screams for something that matches the weather – cool, crisp, and utterly refreshing. Enter Marc Portaz’s Vin de Savoie from Apremont. This delicious varietal Jacquère shows notes of green apple, honeysuckle, crushed stones, and white pepper. Fruit comes from hand-harvested, steep hillside vineyards planted on and around the French alps. In the cellar, the wine If you love zesty whites from Chablis and Sancerre, this bottle is for you. Pair with grilled chicken, Alpine-inspired fondue, or creamy potato soup to satisfy your early fall cravings. For Fireside Sipping – 2018 Cherrier Frères Sancerre Rouge The return of fireside sipping is one of our favorite things about fall. Whether gathered around a fire pit or posted up indoors, this bottle of Sancerre Rouge from Cherrier Frères is certain to fit the mood. Crafted from organically-farmed Pinot Noir, this light to medium-bodied red jumps with flavors of crunchy red berries, dried herbs, violets, and baking spice. For a high-acid red with low levels of tannins (hello, chillable red!) this bottle is the answer. Pair with a variety of foods, including grilled mushrooms, roast chicken, or various game bird dishes. For Your Thanksgiving Table – 2019 Flâneur Pinot Meunier When it comes to choosing your Thanksgiving Day bottles, seeking out wines that are refreshing, versatile, and crowd-pleasing are key. To us, this means high-acid, low tannin reds that come alive when served with a chill. Although Gamay and Cabernet Franc are the general go-to picks, this varietal Pinot Meunier from Oregon promises to give the grapes a run for their money. Crafted from organic and biodynamically-farmed fruit in Carlton, this light-bodied wine jumps with flavors of crushed raspberries, blueberries, lavender, and warm baking spices. Delicate tannins and energetic acidity promise to keep your palate watering, no matter how you load up your Thanksgiving Day plate! For Game Night In – 2016 Château des Antonins Bordeaux Rouge Game night requires something subtle, classic, and packed with a little bit of oomph. Lately, we’ve been turning to Château des Antonins Bordeaux Rouge. Crafted from 53% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and a smidge of Cabernet Franc, this medium-plus bodied wine oozes with flavors of black currants, plums, wet gravel, cedar, and tobacco leaf. For something with a bit of grip (and loads of texture), this classically elegant Bordeaux Blend is just the ticket. Serve with burgers, duck, or hearty seasonal stews. For Homemade Pizza Night – 2020 Guido Porro Dolcetto d’Alba ‘V. Pari’ Every year, we look forward to sourcing our favorite fall ingredients and creating homemade pizzas amongst friends. Although there are plenty of wines that go well with fall-inspired pizzas, we often stick with our go-to Italian reds for the sake of keeping the “grows together, goes together” theme alive. This tasty varietal Dolcetto shows flavors of wild strawberries, red plums, cranberries, holly, pine needles, and cinnamon bark – think of it like Gamay meets Barbera meets Loire Valley Pinot in the best way possible. Serve with a slight chill and get ready for a delicious pairing.
