For Your BFF: Matthiasson Rosé 2016

Meet the perfect pick for your best friend. Don’t worry; it’s not just any old rosé. Winemaker Steve Matthiasson was one of the most sought-after viticulture consultants in California before he created a very limited amount of this salmon-colored stunner. Sweet white peach and berries give way to dry, delicate mineral notes. Yum.

For the Hostess: Gruet Winery Sauvage NV Sparkling Blanc de Blancs

Bubbly from New Mexico? Yep, the growing conditions are just as ideal as those in the famous Champagne region in France, making for a tasty bottle that’s kind to your wallet. The vintners say its bright, bone-dry acidity pairs well with oysters, cream sauce, gooey cheeses...and pretty much any celebration.

Tiago Teles

For the Uber Foodie: Tiago Teles Maria da Graça Bairrada 2015

This special bottle hails from Bairrada, a forgotten region in Portugal. The red blend is made from the little-known Alfrocheiro grape and a dry white grape called Bical. Fresh and earthy, it’s a dream for pairing with most dishes (burgers, pasta and roasted root veggies galore).

love me or leave me rogeu valley gewurztraminer 2015
Ovum Wines

For the Spunkiest Lady in Your Life: Love Me Or Leave Me Rogue Valley Gewürztraminer 2015

It not only has a sassy name; it also tastes like the life of the party. Cloves, allspice and cinnamon complement hints of smoke, burnt orange peel and rosewater. No wonder Gewürz is German for “spice.”

2015 bench sonoma coast pinot noir

For the Newbie Wino: 2015 Bench Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

From a Sonoma County maker whose mission is to create “artisanal wines accessible to all,” this bottle greets you with eucalyptus, black currants, plums, sassafras and soft-as-silk tannins. It’s energetic, subtle and extremely gulpable.

dirty   rowdy semillon yountville 2014
Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery

For the Aficionado Who’s Tried Everything: Dirty & Rowdy Sémillon, Yountville 2014

This natural wine from California is pretty experimental (thanks to two styles of fermentation) but also crisp and oh-so-drinkable. Notes of peach fuzz, beeswax and grape tannins are strong enough to stand up to powerful flavors (think: Mexican food). Your aunt who’s been to Sonoma eight times will be so impressed.
