wine wednesday: bloopers


Blogging from Midwest today! Happy to be back in the Windy City with family and friends. If you happen to be last minute wine shopping today (hi, typical me) here are some top notch picks to bring to all the parties this weekend…the magnum of bubbles will certainly be the star!

thanksgiving wine picks

Segura Vidas Brut Reserve Cava  Bubbles are always a good move, especially if you bring enough to share amongst the larger groups of holiday meals. Plus this bottle looks like it’s straight out of Game of Thrones and available at Costco!

2015 Occhipinti SP68 1.5 L Again, another magnum. Great call for larger groups. This Italian, Nero D’Avola is a crowd pleaser and smooth AF.

2014 Azelia Dolcett0 D’Alba Medium-bodied Italian with notes of leather, stewed cherries. It has a floral nose that won’t overpower the turkey and gravy. Plus at $15 per bottle you can stock on a few!

2015 Idlewild “The Bee” This Sonoma (what’s up domestic picks!) white blend is prodominately Italian white varietals. It’s balanced with notes of tropical fruits. Good to kick off the thanksgiving feast.

Thankful for all you reading up on wine with me! It’s been a fun journey and can’t wait to continue. CHEERS!
