My love for wine is unconditional which makes it so difficult to narrow down my top lists. When shopping for a new wine to try, half bottles can be a great way to go. They also make the perfect gifts! Follow along below as I list off My Favorite Half Bottles of Wine.
I have been a fan of Billecart Salmon for quite some time. I have even been able to meet with CEO Mathieu Roland-Billecart, as well as visit their beautiful Maison. Check out my blog post on the Best Champagne Maisons I’ve Visited here. Their wines are absolutely delicious and a must try.
For many years I’ve been hearing about Sonoma’s Chalk Hill Winery. I finally experienced this amazing winery and can understand rave about their wines and their extensive winery & vineyard experience. Read about my Winery Experience at Chalk Hill Winery.
Their Sauvignon Blanc is also one of my favorites, check out my blog post on The Best Sauvignon Blanc Wines here.
Duckhorn has a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon that is flavorful and sits perfectly on the palette. I have been able to visit the vineyards where I could see the beautiful area and incredible work into making these wines fabulous. Read about my visit to The Fabulous Duckhorn Vineyards here.
