Our Favorite Holiday Wines

We may be biased, but here at W Marketing we believe a holiday get together is only as good as its wine pairings. Now we may be double biased, but we also think that our Wine Country home gives us one of the best selections of local wines to choose from! That’s why, with the help of our incredible New Homes Sales Agents, we’ve put together a list of a few of our favorite local recommendations to help you kickstart your holiday hangouts!

Felicia’s choice:

VML – Our family holidays we love to start with a bubble and nothing is better than the VML Brut Blue Label, Sparkling. It’s subtle notes of strawberry and creme bruleè, is light and a great way to start your day (no OJ needed!). Which we all know will be full of food! We love to open a bottle of Pinot Noir as well, and VML has quite the line up to choose from…

But my favorite label is their Earth Pinot Noir. It is the perfect wine to pair with a holiday dinner, has slight jammy flavors but with that light pinot flavor. You can’t go wrong with any of their Pinot Noirs!

Tim’s choice:

One of my favorite wines for the Holiday Season is Lambert Bridge’s Crane Creek Cuvee.

This is a wonderful blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon bold aromatics, rich supple tannins and an elegant lingering finish.

This wine melds the plum, mulberry and spice notes of Merlot with the structure, dark fruit layers and long finish of Cabernet Sauvignon. Perfect for those holiday get togethers with family and friends.

CARISSA’S choice:

Marine Layer’s Lyra Pinot Noir is my favorite winter wine for a holiday dinner.

Bright and lifted, this wine pairs well with so many holiday favorites, but it’s the memories that draw me to this wine.

Marine Layer’s tasting room is located in the heart of downtown Healdsburg. I have many memories walking to the square for dinner with my family–always snagging a glass of this Pinot for mom (me!) then heading into Mr. Moon’s for my girls. We enjoy Marine Layer’s ambiance especially when they put up their holiday Christmas tree.

DEANNA’S choice:

J Winery Sparkling Cuvee XB – Because sparkling goes with everything, anytime, anywhere!

These bubbles are extra dry and carefully crafted so that its a super crisp, layered wine from start to finish.

This particular blend is perfect way to kick off your festivities in the morning or to pair with sweet or salty dessert!

From bubbly beginnings to bookending an evening with a bright pinot noir, we hope you enjoy trying these delicious selections as much as we enjoyed putting together this list for you! Who doesn’t love to talk about wine, right? So join us in raising a glass to a very happy holiday season, spent with those most important to you! Cheers!
