who what wine: a grapey gift guide

December 14, 2013

For those of us who are not very wine savvy, this is a big help. I like an occasional glass of wine, preferring sweet, either a white or red; but absolutely nothing dry. I always thought it was odd that a liquid could be considered dry until I tried a dry wine. It was horrible–like putting a spoonful of alum in my mouth. Never again.


It’s your very grapey gift guide for 2013! Fret no more about what wine to buy the lucky gift-getters in your life.  Here were some of my favorite bottles this year, for so many different reasons, and who they’d be make great presents for.

Best. Name. Ever. The winemaker said, “If you eat lunch in your finery, grab a shotgun and see where it comes from.” It has a sustainability message, but is also just a super fun name and great label. The Riesling is full of lime, white flower petals, a tiny bit of powder and a perfect dose of acid. It’s from Fowles Winery in Strathbogie Ranges in Victoria, Australia. Strathbogie? Another awesome name. $35, available at Whole Foods in Beverly Hills and northern VA or Ambassador Wines in NYC.
