The holidays are here and that means party time! The Wine365 Cru loves to host and entertain, and when we’re invited to a holiday gathering, these are some of our favorite go-to bottles to bring as the holiday host gift.
6 Wines for the Perfect Holiday Host Gift
Unexpected Sparkling Wine from Argentina:
I’ll be bringing an Alta Vista Brut Rosé of Malbec to the next holiday party. It’s almost unbelievable that it’s Charmat method and not traditional—the bubbles are perfect! It’s a crowd-pleaser with lots of cherry and cherry blossom on the nose. Plus, I like to bring something unexpected, and not many people have tried such a stunning sparkling wine from Argentina. – Diana Zahuranec
The Seafood Lover’s Favorite Falanghina:
Villa Matilde Falanghina is a hostess gift that is sure to make a statement with the seafood lovers in your life. Growing up in a coastal town left my family with a love for mussels and clams—linguine alle vongole is a household favorite—which makes Falanghina the perfect addition to family dinners. – Mackenzie Lesher
Easy-Sippin’ Pinot Grigio:
I love bringing The Seeker Wines to my friends’ get-togethers and parties! This affordable, global wine brand allows novice consumers to taste wines from around the world without breaking the bank. The easy-sippin’ Seeker Pinot Grigio pairs best with light, fresh food (think appetizers, seared scallops, seasonal salads, pasta primavera, and chicken piccata). So, if you’re ordering sushi for a casual night-in with pals or putting together a Pinterest-inspired cheeseboard for a classy soirée, The Seeker Pinot Grigio has you covered. – Jillian Lepore
Everyone’s Best Friend, Barbera:
You know the person who seems to get along with everyone? That’s Barbera—one of the friendliest red wines you’ll ever meet. Michele Chiarlo Barbera d’Asti Le Orme has juicy, bright berry flavors to please most palates and just the right amount of structure to stand up to nearly any dish. – Joe Janish
Spreading Good Cheer with Lambrusco:
If flying solo this holiday season and want to make a lasting impression, bring a bottle of Medici Ermete Solo Reggiano Rosso DOC. This deep ruby red sparkling Lambrusco is a perfect companion for charcuterie boards and turkeys alike, so pop a bottle and spread some good taste and cheer all around you! – Vesselina Stoyanova
The Right Way to End the Meal, with Bubbles:
Medici Ermete Quercioli Dolce wine is a fantastic bottle to bring to host and hostess! This sweet, sparkling red wine is pairs deliciously well with spicy, savory dishes, or desserts. I enjoy baking, especially during the holiday season, so having the right bottle of wine to open at the end of a meal is very important. This sweet Lambrusco adds a bit of sparkle at the end of a special evening. – Jennica Ossi
