A very common question for us, the answer to which surprises a lot of people. My favorite wine is generally whatever I am drinking at any particular moment. I know that sounds funny and perhaps indicative of a problem, but before you jump to conclusions hear me out.
As mentioned in a PREVIOUS POST, wine is meant to be explored. This means across different varietals, vintages, regions, etc. It also means that different wines are best for certain purposes. For instance, whatever cab I am drinking on a snowy night with a giant ribeye is likely going to be awesome. If you were to have that same cab on a hot summer day with a light seafood dish, it would likely not be your favorite wine. In fact, you probably wouldn’t even like it.
Thus, if you truly want to appreciate wine then you must abandon the concept that you can have one “favorite wine.” However, to have favorite wines for certain purposes or experiences is not weird at all. I certainly have my personal preferences for certain purposes.
At Winestyr, we’re here to help you select amazing craft wines that will be your favorite wines for whatever you need. Our wines are all “good” and each could certainly be a candidate for your favorite for any given purpose or occasion. We’ll help you understand which wines will be appropriate for your needs and perhaps more importantly, why. Because we work directly with small craft producers, the wines are amazingly reflective of the passion and personalities behind them. They craft their wines for those perfect experiences described above and we are beyond excited to share them with you!
