Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s time for some beautiful spring wines to help celebrate moms. You’ll see we just did a story on Wines Made by Moms that is a nice angle. Here are some of our top favorite recent wines that can help add a bit to Mother’s Day.
The first two are the Yalumba Y Series 2021 Viognier and 2020 Shiraz Viognier. I had never had a Viognier but now that I’ve learned, I’m quite a bit happier about it. Anyway, Yalumba is an Australian brand and a wonderful price point for what you’re getting. If you’re looking to try something different, I know I had never had a Viognier, but this was very light and flavorful. I also love that this brand is 100% Wild Fermented, Vegan-Friendly, and Gluten-Free. When I learned some wines aren’t Vegan it frankly drove me nuts.
On the right of this photo is Josh Cellars which has always been a hit with us. We’ve seen it at a few local parties and now it’s available nationally. They’ve just come out with a new Buttery Chardonnay and Prosecco that you see in the far right of the photo. Two wonderful wines for Mother’s Day as they are really wonderfully quite light and airy. But even better is their Prosecco which is a nice little pop for Mother’s Day. After that is their Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon and their Zinfandel. This bourbon barrel-aged process really brings a new dimension (and punch) to the wine.
The Josh Cellars are such a ridiculously good price point and such a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. I love that I’m familiar with the brand and feel like it’s just a go-to that you can’t go wrong with.
The first one on the left is Boen which I’ve had before in other guide and have to say is wonderful. But what makes it more wonderful is that they have a program with No Kid Hungry so they’re fighting child hunger. “Enjoy a Bottle, Help Give Meals” is such an awesome initiative.
Elouan’s story is that it’s a beautiful Rose with tastes of strawberry and raspberry. They are doing their own initiative donating 100k to the National Forest Foundation. “Enjoy a Bottle, Help Plant Trees”. I mean, if you’re going to have a bottle, you might as well help out while doing it.
Totally changing direction are two Italian wines from Gran Passione, their Prosecco and Rosso. First of all, they’re great Italian wines, but they definitely fit the criteria of affordable for mother’s day as they’re under $15 for each. If you’re making a nice Italian mean for Mother’s Day, look no further then here.
The Marques de Casa Concha Pinor Noir and Chardonnay are great deals and come straight from the heart of Chile. In learning about these wines I was floored to learn that they started planting grapes in the 1600s. No, these aren’t the same grapes, but that history of wine making is there. But the history, the earth, the passion is there.
Either way, here are some rather affordable wines that you can consider for this Mother’s Day.
