Weekend Plans: Get Wine Delivered, Host a (Solo) Wine Tasting for Yourself
Now that we’re all Inside People, that weekend wine tasting at your local bottle shop is out of the question. But it doesn’t mean you can’t get a little creative. We propose you host your own wine tasting…with yourself…at home. Luckily, Drizly—an alcohol delivery service that’s available nationwide in over 180 locations—offers delivery on a plentiful selection of reds, whites and, yes, rosés. Here are 10 wines to pique your interest.
1. The Pinot Project Pinot Noir
This Californian red is fruity and light with notes of cherry, oak and spice. Pair it with your finest quarantine cheese board.
2. Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages
Another light red, this French Gamay tastes like berries and cherries with a hint of spice.
3. Apothic Red
If you’re hunkering down with a roommate or partner, this blend is a crowd-pleaser for all palates. The cherry, vanilla and mocha notes are both cozy and comforting.
4. Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc
On the lighter side of things, this classic sauvignon blanc is crisp and clean, which is more than we can say for our sweatpants at the moment.
5. Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling
An off-dry riesling is a no-brainer if you’re snacking on cheese. It’s slightly sweet, so it will pair well with the stinky wedge of blue cheese hiding in the back of your fridge.
6. Forstreiter Grooner Grüner Veltliner
The acidity and green apple notes in this Grüner Veltliner are like sunshine in a bottle.
7. Chateau d'Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé
Proof that rosé season is a myth.
8. Dark Horse Rosé
Don’t let the pale pink color fool you. This rosé is anything but bland, with notes of red fruit and berries.
9. Underwood Rosé
This pink wine has notes of berry, citrus and peach, and goes just as well with the random leftovers you’re having for dinner as it does with your secret stash of potato chips.
10. La Marca Prosecco
There are few meals a bubbly wine can’t improve.
