When it comes to holiday entertaining, Giada has a rule of thumb: spend money on great food, not expensive wine!
Buying wine for a crowd can be daunting – any mix of people will have some who self-admittedly know nothing about wine, all the way to aficionados and borderline sommeliers. You don’t need to spend tons of money on wine to impress – Giada has two favorites, a red and a white, that will please the crowd without braking the bank.
Giada has already professed her love for Kim Crawford’s Savignon Blanc here at Giadzy, and with good reason! This inexpensive white wine is light, buttery, and pairs with a wide variety of dishes.
The red wine of choice? Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon! It’s an inexpensive wine that tastes like an expensive one, with a full bodied flavor that doesn’t overwhelm food pairings.
Overall, these two drinkable wines will certainly not embarrass at your next get-together – and you’ll probably have people exclaiming that they’ll add them to their go-to wine repertoire (as we certainly did!)
