During this crazy time I think we are all grateful for wine! Whether you’re popping bottles to mini-celebrations, giving thanks with socially distanced family members and friends, or having a wine adventure these wines will make you feel good and be grateful for wine. They are the perfect bottles to share during this up-coming Thanksgiving weekend.
Here are 6 Wines to be Grateful for and Why:
Codorniu Brut Clasico Sparkling
This 3 pack of sparkling mini’s of cava from Spain is the perfect solution for socially distanced wine get together’s. Keep a few in the fridge for those fall days that pair with your sunny’s and sandals. Not to mention they make great weekday enjoyment for your favourite new shows like Filthy Rich and The Boys.
Dominio de la Granadilla Verdejo 2018
It can still be white wine season even with the cooler air on the way. Dominio de la Granadilla just released October 1st in the LCBO and is a limited release from white wine producing area in Spain called Rueda. The grape inside is called Verdejo and is an ancient grape that is said to have originated in Africa. Serve chilled as you would a pinot grigio and serve with your favourite fish dish!
Hedges Family Estate Red 2016
The west coast really needs our support right now and the wines from Washington State are bold, beautiful and simply divine. If you’re a cabernet lover, than this bottle is a must try. A blend of different grapes, this wine is worth tasting and sharing with all of your red wine lovers.
Trinity Oaks Chardonnay
In partnership with Trees for the Future, a non-profit that has planted over 180 million trees, Trinity Oaks from California plants one tree per bottle purchased. So every time you buy a bottle of wine, the earth becomes a better place with more trees! This Chardonnay is lovable and delicious, serve with grilled shrimp, roasted chicken and turkey and even Pad Thai!
The Audacity of Thomas G. Bright Orange Wine VQA
Orange wine is white wine that is fermented on its grape skins (which is typically how red and pink wine is made). It’s a trend happening in the wine world, and this orange wine from Niagara is dry on the palate, with notes of orange blossom, jasmine and citrus. A very unique wine made from Pinot Grigio grapes and Gewurtztraminer.
Flat Rock Good Kharma Chardonnay 2019
This is a wine that tastes really great and gives back to the local community with every bottle sold (either at the LCBO or at the winery). A portion of sales are donated to Feed Ontario, helping to keep bellies full when they need it the most. Enjoy this big-hearted and truly enjoyable wine tonight with grilled chicken or seafood.
