Sparkling wine for Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day will be far different for mothers world wide. No dining out, no big family gatherings, and lots of social distancing. Someone has to cook Mom a fancy meal and pour delicious wines for the Mother of the Year. Here are some Mother’s Day wines we recommend and wine country recipes to match.

Mother’s Day Wines

Domaine Allimant Laugner Rosé

Sparkling Rosé

Moms always love sparkling wine. We suggest a Rosé sparkling wine and there are plenty of those under $20 that are excellent. Two we recommend are the Domaine Allimant Laugner Rosé and the Gruet Brut Rosé. The Gruet is widely found at Supermarkets and wine shops for about $14 to $16. The Domaine Allimant Laugner Rosé is just a wonderful and refreshing Cremant wine from the Alsatian region of France. What a steal for $19 to $20 at K&L Wines, Whole Foods, and the Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant.

For those moms not a fan of the bubbly, select a dry Rosé. We like the Carol Shelton Wild Thing Rosé at the Safeway or Mollie Stone’s for $16.

Both the sparkling wines and the dry Rosé will be perfect with an appetizer. Check out these recipes from the wine country

Chardonnay for Mom

In the white wine category, a delicious and balanced Chardonnay is in order. We like the Pedroncelli Chardonnay, the Chalk Hill Chardonnay, and the Terra Savia Chardonnay. These are all excellent values for $15 to $19.

Here some meals from wine country that will complement a good Chardonnay

Pinot Noir and Merlot

For Moms, the red wine department calls for a gentle Pinot Noir or a flavorful Merlot. Pinot Noir is delightful when it is light-to-medium bodied in character. It goes great with many foods, especially Salmon. For under $20 we like the Kirkland Signature Pinot Noir, the Talbot Kali Hart Monterey Pinot, and the J. Lohr Pinot Noir.

In the Merlot wines, we suggest the St Francis Merlot, Markham Merlot $18 at Total Wine, and Ancient Peaks Merlot at K&L Wines for $17.

A year from now, we all hope that Mother’s Day can return to normal. Make sure to celebrate in style with Mother’s Day wine and good food. Start saving for a big splurge next Mother’s Day.

Comments

  1. While I did not find the sparkling rose’ recommended in the review it did prompt me to pick a nice Chandon bottle at Folsom CA Costco. While there I found the 2017 Renwood Amador Zin on sale for $8.99. This is a very good price on a favorite BBQ wine. I bought a case. I also found a A 2017 Renwood California Zin on sale at TJ’s for $5:99. This wine is not in the same class as the Amador Zin. I suppose that for $5.99 it is worth the money but it is not what I would drink.
