Rather than participating in Dry January, as many people do, we like to celebrate Try January. This is the month when we try different wines that we’ve never had before to discover our new favorites and go-tos.
We’ve limited our list to just 10 wines that we’re trying this month for Try January.

This wine is described as the perfect summer red because it is highly chillable. Using 90% carbonic maceration this red blend has aromas of cranberry and red jolly rancher. On entry, the palate shifts to more red and purple fruits with accents of Twizzlers and violet.

Lemon, peach, and honey waft from the glass while rose, pear, and honey fill the palate with this medium-to-full-bodied wine.Join us in Try January this year and enjoy a variety of new wines! And for those bold red wines we’re trying we’ll be aerating them with one of Aervana’s one-touch wine aerators.
