5 Tantalizing Wines to Ring in the New Year

With just a few more days of 2019 left, the big year and grand decade is finally coming to a close.

Yes, decade.

Take a moment to soak it in.

As eventful as this year was, the decade was even better. Filled with sweet unions, getaways, surprises and milestones, it was a beautiful concoction of celebration and euphoria. Before the all-too-familiar feeling of bittersweet nostalgia engulfs you, we’ll let you in on a little secret:

The next decade will be even more spectacular.

If you’re ready to kick things off with a bang on New Year, we’ve got a round-up of five of the most electric and enticing wines that are sure to add the perfect touch of life and fun to your New Year’s festivities!

1. Rosé

With soaring popularity, Rosé checks all the boxes and justifiably places itself on the celestial throne of wine-making. What isn’t this beauty perfect for? With fresh flavors ranging from citrus to melon, you can guarantee this fabulous pink wine will go down well with your guests and have everyone grooving by the end of the night. Opt for Graci Etna Rosato 2018 or the promisingly glamorous Domaine De Cala Coteaux Varois En Provence for flirty fun that lasts all night.

2. Chardonnay

You can’t go wrong with a classic Chardonnay. As the most popular and most planted wine in the world, this flirty go-to has become such a staple that it’s now famously synonymous with white wine.

If you want to add a touch of classic yet sexy fun to the big night, explore the higher end of the spectrum and invest in Grand Cru Burgundy or Blanc de Blancs Champagne for a rich, creamy and irresistible flavor.

2010 Chateau Montelena is another terrific option that’s bound to add a zest to the night. For more affordable options, opt for Alamos or Clos du Bois Chardonnay.

3. Pinot Noir

For a softer flavor that still packs a strong fruity punch, opt for a sleek Pinot Noir. We’re a big fan of La Follette 2011 and Willian Selyem 2017. The crisp floral aromas will transport you and add just the right amount of hazy magic to the night.

4. Cabernet Sauvignon

Famous for its dark color and a stunning hint of vanilla, Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine that has a distinct dark berry flavor. To make the most of the night, pair it with these dinner recipes for a memorable night that’s not only fun but also filling.

5. Pinot Grigio

When done right, Pinot Grigio will bring an earthy and lively fruity flavor that’s perfect for a New Year’s party. We recommend Alois Lageder for a party packed with powerful bursts of flavor and energy.
