This year is all about staying home, hunkering down, and supporting local while we do it. Here are some BC wine suggestions to help get everyone through the hols!
Five local wines to get you and yours through the holidays
For your grandma – Singletree Siggy $16.00
An unpretentious, light and aromatic white with an aromatic fruit-driven bouquet. Grandmas don’t usually go for a lot of alcohol, so this is very easy to enjoy.
For your Dad – The Blue Grouse Estate Pinot Noir – $37.99
Dads are always tough to shop for. The Blue Grouse Estate Pinot Noir is a sophisticated wine; elegant yet intense, complex on both the nose and palate, and pairs perfectly with both dinner and Sunday night football. And only 127 cases were made, so it is rare, like your pop.
For your boss – TIME 2018 Syrah $39.99
Impressing your boss with the perfect gift can be a struggle, but you can’t go wrong with a coveted BC wine. The TIME 2018 Syrah has been given top-of-the-class scores by wine reviewers, sure to impress your boss.
For watching Netflix – Evolve 2018 Pinot Gris $19.99
When watching Netflix, all we want is a wine that’s easy to drink and pairs well with a variety of midnight snacks. The 2018 Evolve Pinot Gris is juicy, beautifully-balanced and can be enjoyed on its own or with your latest craving.
For doing a jigsaw puzzle – 2018 Quill Gamay Noir $26.99
The best wine for a game or puzzle at home has to be a light red. The 2018 Quill Gamay is exactly that, light and juicy with low tannins. It pairs perfectly with a charcuterie board, or potato chips.
