National Drink Wine Day

National Drink Wine Day

I personally do not need a special day in order to enjoy wine.  BUT…When there is a legit one, such as National Drink Wine Day – how could I not partake?  Here are some of my recommendations of wine to try on this festive occasion.

National Drink Wine Day
WHITE FAVES

  • Charles Krug Sauvignon Blanc – I usually find this at Costco for around $12.  Very refreshing.
  • Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc – this is a go-to glass more so when I am eating out and it is on the wine list.
  • Stag’s Leap Sauvignon Blanc – My husband and I love everything Stag’s Leap…there are a few wines with the same name as they come from the same region but be aware of where the apostrophe is in the name. I wrote about our visit to this vineyard during our anniversary vacation!
  • Stag’s Leap Chardonnay
  • Pine Ridge Chardonnay
  • Clos du Bois Chardonnay – we stumbled upon this vineyard at 10 am while waiting for Copolla to open.  I’m glad we were early!
  • Sancerre White Bordeaux
  • Tesorro della Regina Pinot Grigio
  • Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio – if you are new to Pinot Grigios, I think the Santa Margarita is a great glass to try.  It is a bit pricier than some others, but worth it.

REDS:

  • Trader Joe’s Two Buck Chuck – you cannot forget Two Buck Chuck (red or white).  The wine is good…not my absolute favorite but also great for cooking!
  • Meomi Pinot Noir – My absolute favorite year was 2011.  We stocked up once we found out that the supply was getting low and enjoyed every last bottle.  The 2012 is delicious too.
  • Acacia Pinor Noir
  • Hitching Post Pinot Noir – I first tried this bottle at a local restaurant and now order their blend and pinot noir regularly.
  • Alouette Pinot Noir – YUM!
  • Markham Merlot
  • Angeline Merlot
  • Stag’s Leap Merlot
  • Invitro Chianti
  • Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Prince of Hearts Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Stag’s Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
