toptenwines Traveling for the holidays can be appealing, but let's be honest…not all of us can afford a trip to Europe, South America or even northern California. You can take a journey by bottle instead of by plane with our "top notch wines at easy-to-swallow prices." Your vinous passport to so many wonderful places minus the flight delays and inclement weather and - get this - all for under $15 a bottle. Now THAT is a deal that can't be beat! el-cotoThis year's top wines offer something for everybody - a veritable cornucopia of flavors to suit a variety of palates, including both your Uncle Louie's and Aunt Thelma's. Reds and whites so versatile they'll complement whatever you have on your menu.  Speaking of menu, we worked with our creative chefs to pair mouth-watering recipes with our wine selections so you need look no further to find just the right dish. Just go to our Top Ten Wines page and click on the different wine labels to show suggested recipe pairings. Maybe a Helfrich Gewurztraminer white served with Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup with Shrimp or a El Coto Special Cuvée Rioja with Spinach and Cheese Lasagna. helfrich-gewurtztraminer Delicious stuff! If sparkling wine is what you need (and who doesn't?) we have a wonderful selection for both sipping and toasting. Last, but certainly not least, we are really excited about the four organic wines included in our top selections. They are made with organically grown grapes and not only do they taste good but they do good too! Did we mention that all of these wines are under $15 a bottle? We've searched the globe for amazing wines at amazing prices and developed outstanding recipes that will undoubtedly be the highlight of your holiday dining experience. You may be staying home for the holidays this year, but with our winter wine selections on your table, every sip will take your taste buds on an exotic voyage. Cheers!
