Whitney’s Monthly Wine Pick: Always Under $15, and Always Delicious

Choosing a wine can be an intimidating task for the uninitiated, but any seasoned wine drinker knows that good wine doesn’t always mean expensive wine. That’s where Whitney comes in.  She’s here to help you pick a delicious bottle at an even more delicious price.

If you don’t already know her, I’d like to introduce all of you to my dear friend, Whitney Adams.  A fabulous sommelier living in Los Angeles, she just launched her wine accessories brand and online shop, Bottle Stock, and blogs about wine and other drinking adventures at Brunellos Have More Fun.  We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.

Whitney’s August Pick:

NV Sommariva Prosecco

$14, Domaine LA

Glera (Prosecco)

Conegliano-Valdobbiadene, Italy

There’s no time like the present, celebration or not, to pop open some bubbly. Treat yourself! And with Prosecco, a class sparkling wine from Italy’s Veneto region, you can treat yourself without dropping a lot of dollars. Sommariva’s Prosecco has been my standby for years. It’s balanced and refreshing with bright lemon acidity and a core of minerality. Perfect on its own, but also fantastic as a base for mimosas, bellinis, or an Aperol spritz.
