This month's wine feature is all about the bubbles, and we've rounded up a handful of our favorite bottles of the effervescent stuff for all your holiday occasions - from the office party to Winemas to NYE, we've got you covered. No 'pagne, no gain. 💪🏼 For a Holiday...

We know, we know. We're a little tardy on our November feature, but for good reason - 1. we're law abiding citizens and 2. knew this one would be worth the wait. If you're not familiar with the hype, the annual release of Beaujolais Nouveau is...

It's that time again - we're back to Wine About It, featuring LIOCO Wine Company! This month we've got a special guest, Sommelier Christopher Harris, on deck to share his take on a few of this month's four(!) featured bottles. Chardonnay is one of the stars of this winery, but we're also highlighting a red and rosé made from the Carignan grape - historically thought of as a 'low-end' grape for adding to blends, LIOCO has taken this distinctive red and delivered a wine full of personality and vibrant flavor - a must try if you're a fan of Beaujolais, Zinfandel or Côtes du Rhône blends.

Without further ado, let's throw it over to Christopher! With over 10 years of experience working in amazing restaurants around the city (including Graham Elliot and Grace), he currently heads up all things wine at Michelin-starred Smyth and The Loyalist, and was also a 2015 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence recipient - a.k.a. he knows his grapes:

Looking for The Beer Drop? Don't worry - Sean and his henleys will be back in full force next week. Starting today, we're debuting a new series - Wine About It - where we'll spotlight a notable or unique wine (or wines...the more the merrier, right?) the first Wednesday of every month. Similar to The Beer Drop, we'll have a limited number of bottles in stock, so once they're sold out, they're out - but we'll be back the first week of every month with another great bottle.

Let's pop those corks! We're excited to kick things off and get to know two bottles from organic Spanish winemaker Alfredo Maestro, including our first orange wine (yep, you read that correctly):
