Wines are key to your holiday dinners, and they have to be the right fit. We here at Wise Guys Discount Liquors (and through Wise Guys University) are going to help put you on top of everyone’s wish list. We are doing this with our Fall Flavors Tasting and the wine event of the season—Wise Guys University’s “Holiday Wines” Class. These events will be featuring wines that will make your holiday meals remarkable.

Our “Fall Flavors” Tasting highlighted:

Kendal Jackson Chardonnay: A natural compliment to any meal not just limited to the holidays!  This California Chardonnay is made from 100% Chardonnay grapes and checks in at 13.8% alcohol.  It is a very fruit forward and approachable Chardonnay.  Look for tropical flavors like pineapple, mango, and papaya.  You may notice a little vanilla and honey as well.  This wine also finishes with a hint of toasted oak.  It is the #1 selling Chardonnay in the U.S.

Tabor Hill Cranberry Wine: This is a newer addition to our lineup.  This wine checks in with 12% alcohol.  The wine is made in Michigan and does an excellent job of capturing that cranberry flavor that goes so well with Thanksgiving Turkey.  Look for a slightly sweet start on this wine with a fresh tart finish.  Makes a great dessert wine as well!

Fetzer Gewurtztraminer: Here it is, the KING of the Turkey wines!  Gewurtz (for short) is a German-style wine that Fetzer has taken and made their own.  This is a blend of two grapes- Gewurtztraminer and Muscat grapes are blended to make this wine.  This wine hides its 12% alcohol very well.  It is somewhat sweet with crisp acidity.  Look for flavors of clove, orange and caramelized apples in this zesty wine. 


But we’re just getting started..!
