Ochoa 2015 Calendas Blanco (SRP $13): Here’s a pleasantly fresh, light and bright wine from Navarra, Spain. Made from 70% Viura (Macabeo), 23% Chardonnay, and 7% Moscatel, this wine offers aromas and flavors of citrus blossom, Asian pear, and pronounced floral notes—all framed by crisp acidity with a refreshing finish. Fun, easy to drink, and very food-friendly, this is just the bottle to have in the fridge when shellfish, salad, or a nice hummus plate is on the menu. A bit of history: Bodega Ochoa was established way back in 1370, and is said to have made wines for the King of Navarra and his Royal Court. Wow! #Navarra #Spain #Viura #wine #winelover #myvinespot

Villa Maria 2016 Private Bin Pinot Noir: This New Zealand producer consistently delivers good bang for the buck. Their Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir selections are reliable options. This Pinot leads with bright red berry fruit, followed by crushed flowers, and mulling spice. The flavors are anchored by well-placed acidity with tart cranberries on the medium-long, pleasing finish. Villa Maria is well distributed so check your local store for this wine. It is under $20 and would make a great addition to the holiday table and beyond. #FirstSipNZ #nzwine #OpenAnotherWorld #VillaMaria #PinotNoir #wine #winelover #myvinespot

We’re washing down the rest of my #ZinDay wines with some baby back ribs, beer battered onion rings, and slaw. It smells wonderful back here. Cheers! #WeberGrills #babybackribs #ribs #BBQ #Zinfandel #wine #winelover #foodporn #foodies #dinner #myvinespot

Bouvet-Ladubay 2015 Crémant de Loire Brut Excellence: Bouvet-Ladubay has been making wines in the Loire Valley since 1851. Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay are blended to craft this deliciously refreshing, light-bodied sparkling wine. There are bright flavors of citrus blossom, white pitted fruits, and crushed flowers. A fine persistent bead and crisp acids refresh and cleanse the palate. Affordable bubbly (SRP $17) that’s perfect for the holiday season and beyond. #LoireLovers #LoireValley #France #CrémantdeLoire #wine #winelover #CheninBlanc #Chardonnay #myvinespot #bubbly #sparklingwine
