12 Wine Days of Christmas

Melani Sarhadi


There’s nothing like the Holiday season to leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling inside — other than wine that is! Here’s a list of twelve, exciting Holiday activities that get even better with a glass (or two) of wine from your most recent wine of the month club shipment:



Women wrapping presents

1. Wrapping Presents


After hours of searching the mall for the perfect gifts for your loved ones, there’s a sigh of relief that escapes upon stepping into your cozy home. Sitting down with a roll of wrapping paper, scissors, and tape, you’re excited to get down to business! And what better companion to help you than a glass of Chardonnay or Malbec.

Our Recommendations:
Silvia Cellars 2019 Chardonnay (93 Points)
Gran Famiglia Bianchi 2017 Malbec (91 Points)





Advent Calendar

2. Chocolate Advent Calendar


Day by day, pushing down cardboard flap by cardboard flap, another chocolate surprise awaits you! And of course, it would be cruel of you to separate arguably the longest of lovers...chocolate & wine. Time to open up a bottle of Roussanne or Cabernet Sauvignon and let them continue their ageless romance.

Our Recommendations:
Zinke 2018 White Blend (Special Selection)
Volker Eisele 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (94 points)





Decorating the Christmas tree

3. Decorating the Christmas tree


You carefully selected the tree, strapped it to the car, brought it in, and now you’re finally ready to decorate. A bottle of Grüner Veltliner or Zinfandel would pair excellently with the new, fresh pine smell filling your heart and home.

Our Recommendations:
Luna Hart 2018 Grüner Veltliner (Only 54 cases produced)
Fritz 2017 Zinfandel (91 Points)






Decorating Gingerbread Man

4. Gingerbread Making


Sweet, sweet molasses! From the flour to the gooey dough, gingerbread making can get messy. A nice refreshment for your trouble (and for the six cookies you’re just eating to “taste” when you’re done) would be a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Noir.

Our Recommendations:
High Valley 2019 Sauvignon Blanc (90 Points)
Beauregard 2018 Pinot Noir (91 Points)






Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

5. Ugly Christmas Sweater Party


Time to get the fa la la la la la la llama sweater out! To add to the spirit of Holiday cheer, you should supply your light-hearted party with a few bottles of Syrah or Chenin blanc.

Our Recommendations:
Time & Direction 2017 Syrah (92 Points)
Raised by Wolves 2018 Chenin Blanc (Exclusive import from South Africa!)







Singing along to Christmas music

6. Singing along to Christmas music


Whether you’re more of a classic or new-age Christmas music lover, you must admit that the familiar melodies pull the heartstrings like no other. And since ‘tis the season to be jolly...might as well pour yourself a glass of Chardonnay or Tempranillo.

Our Recommendations:
Famiglia Bianchi 2018 Chardonnay (Exclusive import from Argentina!)
Viñas de la ERRE 2020 Tempranillo (Exclusive import from Mexico!)






Wine by the fire

7. Sitting by a Warm Fire


Sit back. Relax. Roast a marshmallow or a chestnut or two. Let the crackling, sparking fire in front of you warm your outsides, while a glass of a White Blend or Red Blend warms your insides simultaneously.

Our Recommendations:
Consilience 2018 White Blend (Special Selection)
Sculpterra 2018 Red Blend (93 Points)






Watching Christmas movies with wine

8. Watching Christmas movies


Don’t be a Grinch or a Scrooge! Offer your guest a glass of Viognier or Merlot to enjoy the movie night you’re hosting. Then light your favorite candle and let the screening commence.

Our Recommendations:
Jaffurs 2018 Viognier (91 Points)
G & C Lurton 2016 Merlot (Only 1,000 cases produced)







White Elephant Party with wine

9. White Elephant Party


Your sibling may think they brought the best gift to the game with their fancy, six-slice toaster, but little do they know...you stepped it up this year! With a few bottles of Rosé in your arsenal, you’ll definitely leave your gift recipient leaving feeling very merry.

Our Recommendations:
Schug 2019 Rosé (96 Points)
WillaKenzie 2019 Rosé (91 Points)







Mistletoe

10. Catching Yourself Under the Mistletoe


You’re grinning from ear to ear, surrounded by all your best friends at the most delightful Holiday party. You catch one of your friends motioning you to look up...and just what are they pointing at? You’ve been caught under the mistletoe! And what would be the perfect wine to be in your hand at this exact moment of time? Why a Riesling or Grenache of course!

Our Recommendations:
Lucas & Lewellen 2020 White Blend (Special Selection)
Press Gang 2016 Grenache (Special Selection)




Christmas Brunch with wine

11. Christmas Brunch


Brunch may be one of man’s greatest creations...add Christmas day to it and it just might be the best afternoon of the whole year. Welcome your most loved ones into your home with the best bubbly...choose from our exclusive Champagne imported directly from France or a bottle of 94-Point American sparkling wine!

Our Recommendations:
La Pitancerie 2016 Champagne (Exclusive Import from France)
Pono 2018 Sparkling Wine (94 Points)






Christmas Dinner wine toast

12. Christmas Dinner


To rein in the Christmas season, add a bottle of Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon from our Diamond Wine Club to your carefully prepared Christmas dinner menu. Your guests will be sure to be impressed by both your cooking and your wine selection.

Our Recommendations:
Dutton-Goldfield 2017 Chardonnay (94 Points)
Fiftyrow 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (96 Points)




And that, ladies and gentlemen...is how to appropriately wine about the Holidays. And don't forget about sending Wine Club Gifts!
