Here’s Where to Buy Meghan Markle’s Favorite Wine
Even though we didn’t get an invite to the royal wedding (yet), we can still totally toast to the future duchess. And what better way than with her favorite vino?
A trip back in time to Markle’s lifestyle website, thetig.com, revealed that she's obsessed with an Italian red called Tignanello. When she sipped it for the first time, she had such a major a-ha moment that she decided to name her blog after it.
It’s easy to buy a bottle of Tignanello online, but it’ll set you back about $100.
According to Sayre, Tignanello was the first commercially produced luxury sipper to blend Tuscany’s iconic Sangiovese grape with regal Cabernet Sauvignon. “The two grapes work so well together because you have the rusticity of Sangiovese wrapped in Cabernet’s velvety dark fruit—both providing their own sense of power,” Sayre said. (We knew Meghan Markle had great taste.)
He suggests we turn to Italian wine producer Ornellaia, famous for its Tuscan Cabernet-based wines. Ornellaia’s Le Volte dell'Ornellaia, a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Merlot provides the same regality as Tignanello but clocks in under $30.
