How to Pick the Perfect Wine for Every Holiday Occasion

There are not many holiday events that couldn’t be improved with an amazing bottle of vino.

But there is an art to finding the best wine for every occasion. Everybody has their own preferences, and with a seemingly infinite amount of options to choose from, it can be challenging to find the right one – but not impossible.

For instance, the location of the party, the weather, and the food you’ll be eating can all serve as clues that will lead you to a wine pick that will surely impress.

Family Get-together
The wine you bring can say a lot about you. For instance, a bottle of premium Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect way to show your extended family that you’re all grown up (and totally deserve a seat at the adult table.) The vibrant and crisp New Zealand white is perfect for casual parties where you’ll be eating light appetizers rather than a heavy sit-down dinner.

Holiday Party
As we all know, it’s never a good idea to show up to a party empty-handed. Before you arrive, we suggest you pick up a bottle or two of Campo Viejo Tempranillo. The bold and fresh Rioja red is a real crowd pleaser and also super affordable (so you’ll have room in your budget to pick up that new outfit you’ve been eyeing too).

Dinner with the In-Laws
If it’s been awhile since you last saw your S.O.’s parents, it wouldn’t hurt to surprise them with a little something special. Fortunately, we have the perfect recommendation: Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Shiraz. Aged first in oak wine barrels and then finished in aged whisky barrels, it’s a rich, deep and smooth wine that will impress even the hardest-to-please person in your life.
