As we close out 2013, here is my list of the best wines I drank this year!

  1. Croatian Wine - specifically Plavac Hvar and Plavic Dignac. These Plavac grape varietals from various regions in Croatia's coastal areas, are my top picks for this year, Every day I was in Croatia, I was so excited for the evening wine, especially due to these smooth, dry, and slightly port-like table wines. (reds)
  2. Diseno Malbec - I love Malbec, and this brand provided a totally fruity and drinkable blend! (red)
  3. Red Guitar Temperanillo-Garnacha - this is a delicious blend, meant for my heart! It is luscious Temperanillo which smooths out the dry Garnacha, Spanish wine at its best! (red)
  4. Les Charmes Chardonnay - a smooth blend of unbaked French Chardonnay which will quite your gripes about California Chardonnay. (white)
  5. La Finca Old Aged Malbec - A smooth and spicy Malbec for any wine lover. This fruity blend was one of my favorite from Wine Riot Boston! (red)
  6. Gervasi Select Lambrusco Bianco - This is from an Ohio Winery in my hometown! A sparkly, sweet, fruity wine - great for the summer. (white)
  7. La Stoppa Trebbiolo - A rich, smooth, and fruity Italian barbera and bonardo blend which was a favorite at a recent wine dinner I attended! Yum! (red)
  8. Collefrisio Montepulciano d' Abruzzo - I definitely explored more Italian wine this year, and was so happy to have found this yummy find at Brio in NYC! Perfect with my favorite pasta there! (red)
  9. Kaiken Malbec - my love affair with Malbec continues with Kaiken! I had this at the NY Winter Wine Fest this year! Rich and spicy, with a lot of fruit. (red)
  10. Chandon Extra Brut - A yummy and sweet sparkly wine for any celebration!

And there you have it! Here's wishing you a Happy New Year with lots and lots of new wine in 2014! Cheers!
