Nobody earns a glass of wine more than a hard-working mama. So get your friends together for a little wine time to toast to being the awesome moms that you are.
According to Wine Enthusiast Magazine, here are some of the best wines for under $15 and something to pair with each:
Acrobat 2015 Pinot Gris (Oregon) $13
This Pinot Gris is priced just right, yet still has depth and complexity despite being produced in large quantities. Plus this wine goes with just about everything, all the time. Literally it is a great choice with any meal, especially with fish dishes.
Columbia Crest 2013 Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley, Washington) $12
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a mixture of fruit and barrel flavors, yet it a delicious combination. Cocoa, plum and vanilla are paired with fruit flavors to create a good balance that is priced perfectly. Pair with chocolate chip cookies or Hershey’s kisses to highlight the wine’s bold flavor.
Villa Wolf 2014 Pinot Blanc (Pfalz) $12
This Pinot Blanc is a fabulous value wine that’s refreshing and has a wide appeal. Its initial puckery taste is balanced by sweet-tart peach and apple flavors. Pinot Blanc is best paired with a cheesy dish or even just a killer cheese platter.
Viña Cumbrero 2010 Crianza (Rioja) $10
Riojas are a more modern style wine and this Vina Cumbrero tastes bright and balanced, with cherry and berry flavors. As expected, it pairs particularly well with Spanish food, especially lamb and pork, as well as recipes that are robust and spicy. Indian food is also a surprisingly great pairing with a Rioja.
Stemmari 2015 Grillo (Sicilia) $10
Looking to try a cool, new white wine on a budget? Grillo is from Sicily, Italy and is reminiscent of Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has alluring aromas of citrus, white flower and tropical fruit. Grillo pairs well with pasta, so try something delicious like fettuccine with asparagus and burrata!
