Wines to Open NOW:
Wine certainly seems to be a key player during this strange time of quarantine. Never have so many people been talking about and drinking wine; parents deserve it after a long day of simultaneous homeschooling and work, friends are drinking it throughout Zoom hangs, and it seems like we all are pouring ourselves a glass when the clock strikes 5PM and we close our computers for the day. While we work through bean recipes and sourdough starters, now is the perfect time to dive into the wine reserves. Here are a few vintage favorites for the days ahead.
Vintage Champagne – All those years of holding onto that bottle “to open on a special occasion.” I think I can speak for everyone and say now more than ever do we need more Date. Nights. I know it can seem like a drag to change out of your sweats into something nice, but it’s amazing what a little change of pace and some candles can do. So put on a dress, or at least jeans, and pop that bottle. Champagne is also almost limitless with its pairing potential, from popcorn to seafood (scallops, clams), and even a grilled steak, it’s on the top of my list to drink with almost anything. I always say, it’s not the occasion that makes the wine, but the wine that makes the occasion.
