Wine for Decking the Halls

Many of us have already started decorating our homes, preparing for Christmas. We have our tree up and the decorations up around the house but we still need to do outside. We also ordered a second tree this year that will need to be trimmed when it arrives.

In addition to the fun holiday music to put you in the spirit, wine is a great accompaniment to decking your halls for the season. We had a few old standbys this past weekend, all red wines, but really any easy drinking wine will do. Pick something that you don’t necessarily need to pair with food, such as a red blend or juicy cabernet.

The most important thing to remember is where you put the wine while you decorate the tree! We kept our glasses on the kitchen counter just to be safe!

Our choices this past weekend, included the Holiday Top 100 Playlist on Spotify, as well as:

  1. The Waxed Bat: A red blend from Argentina. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Malbec. We’ve had it recently and enjoyed it so much, we went back for an encore.
  2. Outlander Series Quartet: We tried James Fraser Red, a Paso Robles from California with Grenache as its main grape. It wasn’t my favorite but my husband loved it. It had a coffee/cigar taste going on for me. Definitely lots of flavor!

We, of course, enjoyed many more than two bottles! But I was too busy to keep track of what we opened! I promise to do better next time. Until then, happy decorating!
