Getting Lucky (with Wine) at Your Party

Let’s have a party!

Whether you’re drinking from a ‘red solo cup’ or a glass, you’ll score a touchdown at any tailgating party with Cheval Quancard Réserve Bordeaux Rouge. Bold, ripe blackberry and cassis combined with rich, earthy character will warm you inside and out.

Try Château Larose-Trintaudon, Haut-Medoc for a little more rough and tumble tannin that goes with all football fare. Throw a party for your BFF’s birthday and grab a case of Château Tuilerie Pagès, Entre-Deux-Mers. I promise your BFF will be saying OMG after trying this refreshing afternoon sipper that will keep the gossip flowing.

Are you celebrating the election or did politics leave a bad taste in your mouth? Wash it down with Château d’Agassac, Haut-Medoc, it is age-worthy for far longer than this president’s term, without refute.

Back to getting lucky, have that romantic party for two and turn on the charm with the silky, sexy and full-bodied Château de Rochemorin, Pessac-Léognan. Then use a little liquid gold to tease and flirt your way to dessert, Château Lamourette, Sauternes with seductive honeysuckle aromas and a lush texture will close the deal.

Now that the deal is done, for the engagement party make sure there is Bordeaux for every taste. A slightly oaky white in Barton & Guestier Bordeaux Blanc, Château Bonnet Bordeaux Rosé, a fragrant, lovely and elegant rosé, and finally, a red to appeal to those that like the fruitier style but with enough structure and tannin for those traditionalists, Château Langoiran, Cadillac.
