Raina has a French Sauv Blanc for your Spicy Dishes

Domaine Cedrick Bardin Pouilly Fumé Pouilly-sur-Loire, France $26.99/bottle Calling all Loire Valley lovers! This 100% organic Sauvignon Blanc, with its aromas of citrus, mandarin and peach, will have you dreaming of a warm summer day. It hits your palate with a crisp and clean dry finish, dominated by a pleasing minerality. This Pouilly Fumé is fantastic with goat cheese or shell fish, but I highly recommend pairing this beauty with your favorite spicy dish: Try this Sauv Blanc with chicken tikka masala on a cold winter night, and say "welcome" to your new favorite dynamic duo.

Seth has something special for your dry January – and for your not-dry January

Phony Negroni Non-Alcoholic Cocktail This non-alcoholic Negroni is next-level. Seriously! It has the traditional bitterness you'd expect from a Negroni, and the slight carbonation helps to imitate the bite you typically get from the alcohol. It's delicious guilt-free indulgence, and it's something I highly recommend!

Kerry is dealing with bad bunnies.

Click edit button to change this text. "The damned rabbits" that inspire this cheeky name and label are cute, but a real threat to the Tempranillo vines from which this wine is made. Despite the "work" of these bad bunnies, the winemakers have crafted an incredibly delicious and enjoyable wine. Los Conejos Malditos balances bright fruit flavors of cranberries, cherries and plums, with alluring acidity, light tannins, and a touch of earthiness. You can serve this wine slightly chilled, if you'd like, and pair it with cured meats, sausage pizza, slow-smoked barbecue, or even wild game. Do yourself [...]

Abbie is drinking a very friendly Beaujolais

La Galoche Beaujolais Gamay is a light-bodied, easy-drinking red that will be a hit at any get-together. Similar to a Pinot, this wine has notes of juicy plums and Luxardo cherries while remaining dry with soft tannins. I paired this wine, slightly chilled, with homemade gyros, but I think it would also complement any charcuterie or even dessert. This food-friendly wine is a great gift idea — or you can keep it for yourself. Cheers!
