ENJOY 10% OFF MIXED WINE CASES (ANY 12 BOTTLES)!
Putting together a mixed case of wine is one of the most challenging things to do, especially for someone else. Instead of buying a case of a single type or brand of wine, you want to put together a varied yet cohesive case that shows you put thought and effort into it. Let's discuss some tips for building the perfect mixed case of wine and where to buy wine online.
You want to have a variety of wines in your mixed case, but you also want to make sure that each wine is represented well. The case should have at least one everyday red, one everyday sparkling, one special-occasion white, and one pricey sparkling.
A medium bodied red wine like Pinot Noir from Benton Laneis the perfect start to your case. The bottle is well-balanced, with floral and smoky cedar notes including rich black cherry flavors, and a slight hint of black licorice.
Sparkling wine doesn't always have to be saved for a special celebration. There are some wonderful bubbles under $20 per bottle that pair perfectly with a nice sunny day at the pool. Try a Spanish Cava like Vilarnau Brut for $16.99, or a refreshing dry style of Lambrusco like Lini 910 Labrusca Lambrusco for $18.99.
There should be at least one bottle of white that is potentially a little pricier and shows that it is meant for a special occasion. Maybe a promotion, a party, or a special meal. A Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley is a great option for this. These wines are crisp, with lime citrus flavors and a hint of honey.
Last but certainly not least is the priciest wine in your case. Champagne is a great way to top off a meal or celebrate a special occasion. A bottle like Veuve Cliquot's "La Grande Dame" is a great example of a pricey sparkling wine. The champagne has a light, bubbly, and refreshing taste with a fruity note.
