What’s your go-to holiday wine?

December 11, 2008

Here in the US, we’re full-on into holiday madness.  While the recession is certainly having it’s own effects on cheer, it certainly doesn’t mean we need to forgo that special wine, right?

In my house, when the party calls for a red, we have a midpriced go to like Red Truck. For a white, we’ll serve Field Stone Saugvignon Blanc, when we can get our hands on it.

My parents are a different story, however.  My dad, being a collector of wine is just as likely to bust out the Opus One as he is an Easton Zin.

Champagne, or, more correctly sparkling wine, is where we all agree.  For the Sagalyn family, that special bottle of sparkling is Gruet from New Mexico.  No matter the special occasion, from birthdays to Thanksgiving to New Years, Gruet Brut finds its way to our table.

Do you have a go-to wine?  If so, we’re itching to hear about it and, more importantly, try it.
