Not to be forgotten why not consider a bottle of Port for the holidays!
It may be one of the truly great wines of the world—certainly one of the most famous. There is no better time of year to open a bottle of Port than in the cold snowy winter. Here are my three Port Wine suggestions for the holiday celebrations with food pairings and various budgets in mind.
Bordeaux on a Budget
France is the land of vine and wine! Whether it’s sabering a bottle of champagne or sipping classic Bordeaux, once you start to explore wine you can’t get away from France’s influence. Bordeaux – possibly the most famous red wine region in the world - features red wines made from blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet France, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

Sip Righteous Rhone!
I'm Good Wine Gal. I blog about "good wine" and how to find it! I'm love producers who are doing things differently for example, following biodynamic, organic and sustainable farming practices. Wines made with little intervention get me excited. I am a geek, I’ll admit and classic food pairings suit me just fine.

Meet Dwight Sick, winemaker at Moraine Winery.
There are many reasons why I love the Naramata Bench. It is on this stretch of a road that winds 26 kilometers from Penticton to the village of Naramata, amongst the 40 wineries that reside here - we find Moraine Winery. At only 10 minutes from Penticton, Moraine finds itself in the heart of it all. Here you will find - good wine, a gorgeous lake view and fabulous sunsets.
Meet Dwight Sick, winemaker at Moraine Winery. He’s busy selecting tanks and barrels and blending wine for perfection. Dwight is not a newbie to the valley, or to winemaking. In fact after 15 vintages, this veteran winemaker still considers himself a “student”. Recognizing that all wines begin in the vineyard, Dwight believes Moraine has a unique micro climate affect by the lakes influence and this along with the regime of sustainable practices in their elevated vineyard sites will result in award winning, age-worthy wines.
