Holiday Wine Recommendations

There’s not a perfect wine other than the one you like, red or white. Whether you like bubbles (sparkling), sweetness (whites) or dryness (red).  It really comes down to your taste.  I prefer the medium body cabernets from Paso Robles, they seem to have more fruits and acidity that go well with turkey.  The young ladies in my family enjoy the sweet whites as in Pinot Grigio and the older ladies love the bubbly. Here are some recommendations you can find in any wine stores or supermarkets. Just remember – it’s what you like that matters!!!

Sparkling wines are favorites among those who love whites:

  • Mumm Napa Brut ($18)
  • Korbel Brut ($14)
  • Moscato d’Asti  ($22)
  • Pol Roger Brut ($40)

White wines:

  •  Chateau Saint Michelle Riesling ($10)
  • Poet’s Leap Riesling ($20)
  • Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio ($16)
  • Terlano Piot Grigio ($17)
  • Angeline Sauvignon Blanc ($15)
  • Chateau St. Jean Sauvignon Blanc ($18)
  • Hall Sauvignon Blanc ($22)

Red Wines:

  • La Crema Pinot Noir ($25)
  •  Tunnel Hill Pinot Noir ($28)
  • 4 Vines Zinfadel ($12)
  •  Rosenblum Zinfandel ($20)
  •  Josh Cellars Paso Robles Cabernet ($18)
  • Justin Cabernet ($20)

About myredwineguys

My red wine guys, Jim and Rich, have been drinking and comparing red wines together for the last 10 years. We drink reds exclusively (except for champagne during New Year’s Eve celebration's or special occasions). In our search to find the best red wine for the buck, we are constantly buying and drinking a variety of reds. Frequently, we see many of our favorite reds increase in price (making them impractical to buy and consume with the dismal economy). This motivates us to try and compare lesser known reds from a variety of wineries. We are constantly telling our friends where to buy and save on these great reds. One weekend over a bottle of red wine (of course), we decided to share our recommendations with the world via a blog (with the support of our wives who really think this is another way for us to drink more red wine). We are going to be making road trips up the coast and sharing our opinions on some great California Reds. Jim is a retired Navy Senior Chief now working as a Navy Technical Rep. His world travels have given him the opportunity to taste wines on different continents. He finds himself often comparing them to his favorite region – Napa Valley’s Oakville/Rutherford districts that produce some of the world’s best Cabernet Sauvignon's. Richard is a musician who grew up in Santa Maria with a family rich with red wine tradition. According to the family legends, his grandfather used to make wine out of grapefruit when grapes were not available. He grew up drinking and making wine with his father and other Italian families in the central coast, long before there were grape vines in the area. In fact, the reason his family located to California was to make wine! Thank you for visiting our site! We hope you enjoy a glass of exceptional red wine soon!
