What We're Drinking Right Now

We love wine, and these are our favorites

We love wine. Like, really, really love wine. Luckily, one of the perks of working for Wine Insiders is that we get to try exciting new wines and talk about our favorites at work.

At other companies, people chat around the water cooler. At Wine Insiders, those conversations happen in the office over a bottle of wine. With that in mind, we brought pen and paper to the office kitchen and asked a few of our team members about the Wine Insiders wines that they love to share with their friends.

"I hadn't ever experienced a white wine quite like this"

"Les Chartrons Bordeaux Blanc was one of the first wines I tasted at Wine Insiders, and I remember thinking I hadn't ever experienced a white wine quite like this. This selection is anything but boring–it boasts complex, zesty citrus and grass flavors without overpowering the palate. Take your weeknight Sauvignon Blanc to the next level or transform your "red wine only" friends into white wine lovers with this Bordeaux Blanc."

- Brenna, Email Extraordinaire

"This is my favorite food wine"

"Cala De' Poeti Maremma Toscana I.G.T. is like a Super Tuscan, because it's a blend of international Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and local Sangiovese, all grown in Tuscany. This is my favorite food wine. Pasta is a weeknight staple in my house, and I love how this wine has a high level of acidity to match a good tomato sauce. Plus, it has strong fruity notes that can stand up against meat, cheese, and anything else you put in your pasta.

- Chloe, Creative Copywriter

"Don't let anyone tell you that you can't enjoy Rosé all year round"

"Racine Côtes de Provence Rosé is my go-to on a sunny day. It's delightfully refreshing with a nose of strawberry and a soft body of white rose petals and peach. Don't let anyone tell you that you can't enjoy Rosé all year round or at any occasion!"

- Jake, Creative Powerhouse

"...bold, fruity and downright delicious"

"Burke Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is bold, fruity and downright delicious. This California red is very popular among Cabernet Sauvignon aficionados. I enjoyed it with a one-pound New York steak!"

- Phillip, First-Class Customer Support

"I keep it on hand to make a special occasion even more special"

"Abbazia Cuvée Prestige was an easy choice. When a wine can take me back to my fondest memories, like drinking sparkling in Italy with my wife, I keep it on hand to make a special occasion even more special."

- Rami, Platform Operations Superstar
