Staff Picks and Gift Ideas

It's the time of year when we tend to start reflecting on what's happened over the past 12 months, and it's also the time of year when we put some nicer bottles on the table and seek out special bottles for the special people in our lives. Couple all of that with the fact that the Friday after Thanksgiving is usually an abysmally slow day in the shop, and you have the basis for this week's wine feature!

Each of us has selected two bottles: one to drink and one to gift. But I set the following conditions: sub-$25 for the the drinking bottles, sub-$100 for the gifting bottles, and most importantly, all of them had to be wines that are new to the shop in the last 12 months.

Well, everyone rose to the occasion splendidly and picked out some really fun wines. Join us on Instagram Live this Friday, November 26 at 4pm as we taste a few of them and talk about the rest!
