Mother's Day Staff Picks

If anyone deserves a day of celebration and recognition, it's mom. And to thank her for all she's done for us, we've been thinking long and hard about the perfect gift to make her smile. Sure, flowers and macarons are a lovely treat, but for us at Wine Insiders, a perfect gift is a mom-worthy bottle of wine.

We talked to a few members of our staff to see what delicious bottles they're giving their mothers, to inspire some ideas for you! (Spoiler alert: Rosé and bubbly seem to be popular picks!)

If she enjoys breakfast in bed:

"I think Abbazia Asti Spumante D.O.C.G. is the perfect Mother's Day gift. Sparkling wine reminds me of toasts for special celebrations, and I would love to toast my mom on her holiday to thank her for all that she has done for me. Plus, off-dry sparklers like this one go great with everything from brunch in bed (mimosas, anyone?) to sweet after-dinner treats!" - Brenna, email enchantress

If she loves cooking:

"My mother loves the 2011 Cala De' Poeti Maremma Toscana I.G.T. Since she spends a lot of time in the kitchen, it is a perfect wine for when she makes her Sunday sauce. A sip for her and a splash for the sauce makes it the ultimate mom wine! For us, Sunday is all about spreading the love, from fork to glass." - Tyson, wine wrangler

If she love celebrating:

"My mother loves making brunch on the weekends when I'm in town! The lovely El Macho Cava is a perfect match for a well-rounded brunch, and also great for mimosas! Both my mother and I enjoy celebrating special occasions—or just celebrating life in general—over food and wine (particularly outside in the springtime!). The zesty effervescence and fresh fruit notes make this a huge hit at any brunch." - Jake, art authority

If she has a sweet tooth:

"Both my mother and mother-in-law's favorite is the Abbazia Moscato Vino Dolce I.G.T. They both like dessert wines and this one has always been the favorite at most of our family gatherings." - Chris, customer t

If she has a laid back lifestyle:

"My mom loves white wine, especially Chardonnay because it goes better with her Carolina beach house lifestyle! She would love a glass of 2016 Stone & Glass Chardonnay to watch the sunset (bonus: the label art was created by her youngest son, Greg, who's an artist!)." - Kristin, brand command

If she wants to try something new:

"My mom and I have very different wine preferences; I love ripe and fruity Pinots, and she only drinks dark reds with dry, grippy tannins! I don't think she's tried a Tannat before, so I'm sending her 2016 Sierra Trails Lodi Tannat because she'll enjoy its dark, spicy notes." - Chloe, word whisperer
