Wine recommendations for Mother’s Day


For this Mother’s Day column, I had delirious dreams of writing a very detailed, long, drawn out, story with the best wines recommendations to offer to your on mom on Mother’s Day. This of course was before I realized that many father and children these days have a modest budget to offer a gift.

Mother’s Day is just next Sunday, which probably lead to a last minute stampede to get a gift. Don’t take for granted that the moms in your life have everything, wine is always a pleasant surprise gift option. This hallmark card holidays is also a propitious opportunity to make your mom discover a new grape variety or region.

These wines will make great gifts and will be enjoyable by a wide range of wine enthusiasts ladies including -I hope- your mom. Make sure to bring a corkscrew, just in case she wants to share.
