Jade's Fall Faves

Nov 03, 2023

Just like that, the holiday season is beginning! This time is all about spending time with those you love and creating lasting memories. Jade has picked out a few of her new favorite wines to celebrate and share in great times!

The weather might be getting a little chilly, but we’re still drinking crispy white wines! Elbling is an ancient grape planted in the Mosel region by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago. It used to be more widely planted in Germany than Riesling! Today, there’s limited vineyard space dedicated to it, but it is enjoying a bit of a renaissance amongst German winemakers. This wine is light, easy to drink, and pairs well with salads, seafood, and shellfish. It conveniently comes in a liter bottle - perfect for sharing!
$17.99 / 1L; available at Krog


This wine with its cheeky name is perfect for this season! The name refers to a flock of wild sheep that ran loose in the producers’ best vineyards and ate half of the grapes. Instead of this being a huge disaster, it ended up being great for Citizen Wines - they created a concentrated, delicious blend of Verdejo, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. This wine is packed with tropical fruit flavors - think passionfruit, guava, and white peach. Pair this with a cozy movie night!
$14.99 / 750 mL; available at Krog & West End


Subject to Change is always doing something fun - and this wine is no exception. It’s a blend of Merlot, Chardonnay, and Pinotage that delivers a crunchy, glou glou red wine. It has notes of small crunchy red fruit - think cranberry, pomegranate, and strawberry - with a hint of salinity. This tart and fresh blend does well with a nice chill before serving. Pair this with sheet pan nachos!
$25.99 / 750mL; available at Krog


This is the kind of Bordeaux that you’ll want to come back to over and over again. It’s predominantly Cabernet Franc blended with Merlot - think notes of juicy red and black cherries, blackcurrants, red and black plum, cocoa powder, and grilled bell pepper. If you want to drink a wine by the fire pit, this is the wine for you! Also pairs well with pot roast, portobello mushroom dishes, and au gratin potatoes.
$21.99 / 750mL; available at Krog

If you want an approachable introduction into Greek wine, this is your wine! It’s a blend of Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from Northern Greece that gives juicy red and black fruit with soft, velvety tannins. This wine is for those who love a big, bold red, but want to experience a new country of origin. Pair this wine with a rack of lamb, spanakopita, or chicken biryani!
$21.99 / 750mL; available at Krog
