STARTING TODAY, for the next 10 days we’ll be highlighting one wine a day. These are wines that have really stood out to us over the course of the year. Wines we keep coming back to, wines we cannot stop drinking! Whether you’re in need of a something that will make you the star of the show at a holiday party, or just want something to cozy up with on a cold evening—Chaleston's version that is—we’ve got you covered!
Each day from December 14th-24th, we will present to you one wine that will shine brightly this holiday season. CHEERS!
DAY 5: A SICILIAN DREAM
FIVE golden rings……On day five we are excited to deliver this GOLDEN-colored wine which hails from the picturesque coast of Sicily, between the Mediterranean Sea and inland mountains. Arianna Occhipinti, who started making wine at a mere 16 years old, is a star that has risen very quickly over the past decade; all of her wines are alive and pure just like her, and will transport you to Italy.
This island wine is made up of native Sicilian varietals, Zibbibo and Albanello. Fresh orange citrus jumps out of the glass followed by notes of almond and sage. This is a sunny Mediterranean white, but we can’t imagine not having this around this holiday season. Go the full Italian journey and pair this golden wine with a Sicilian-style dish such as grilled swordfish with olive oil or spaghetti alle vongole - pasta with clams!
