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 Whitney A. We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.
WHITNEY’S DECEMBER PICK:
NV Domaine Collin Crémant de Limoux ‘Cuvée Tradition’
$12.50, Domaine LA
Even though you should really be drinking sparkling wine all year long, for reasons special or mundane, the holidays are always a time that the bubbles come out to play in abundance. This Champagne method sparkler from southern France is affordable enough that you can take it to any dinner party, saber with it on New Year’s, or build a Champagne tower just ’cause you can (and it’s supremely fun). Bring a bottle of this and some of Claire’s Brown Butter Sea Salt Popcorn to your next holiday gathering and you’ll win the party.
