Chardonnay, the perfect breakfast wine. That is according to some winemakers, who drink it while dipping their toes in the stream and eating bacon and eggs. I like it with buttermilk fried chicken, a lobster roll or a Cobb Salad as well. Each year, this happy grape gets its own day. This year it is Thursday, May 21st, right ahead of, for some, an unprecedented Shelter in Place Memorial Day Weekend. Whatever your circumstances, take a look at some of our favorites from the team at Planet Grape Wine Review, including several from Jackson Family Wines tasted virtually with their super engaging educator, Master Sommelier Thomas Price.” Happy dipping!

Mother’s Day is here and we know where we will be celebrating – at home! Why not make the best of it with a few well-selected wines that are sure to please the mom in your life or in your customer list – add any of these easily available wines to a curbside pick-up or delivery box.

The consensus here at Planet Grape Wine Review was to include a few brunch friendly esoteric and lighter whites as well as several fine and feminine Pinot Noirs, one of them a special selection by panelist Dr. Liz Thach, Master of Wine.

As spring wafts right in, we do some counter-programming with a case of reds, including a couple of Portos.
