Sure, Virtual Story Time Is Great, But We’re All About This Virtual Wine Tasting

Red Wines

the pinot project pinot noir

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.

apothic red

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.

White Wines

oyster bay sauvignon blanc

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.

chateau st michelle riesling

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.

Rosé Wines

whispering angel rose

7. Chateau D'esclans Whispering Angel Rosé

Proof that rosé season is a myth.

dark horse rose

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.

underwood rose

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.

Sparkling Wines

la marca prosecco

10. La Marca Prosecco

There are few meals a bubbly wine can’t improve.
