Our Master Sommelier Picked These 21 Essential Wines for the Holidays

Devon Broglie, Master Sommelier at Whole Foods Market

Devon Broglie is the Master Sommelier for Whole Foods Market. Whole Foods Market is the only national grocer with a Master Sommelier on staff to taste and select wine for the department.


From the appetizers to the turkey to brunch, the holiday season provides plenty of opportunities to break out the wine. Not sure what wine to pour for each occasion? Don’t worry. Our expert wine team so has this.

La Marca Luminore Prosecco Superiore

For an Aperitif


A next-level prosecco, La Marca Luminore Prosecco Superiore is delicate, floral and lively. A lovely way to jump-start the appetite.

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau

To Go With Appetizers


Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau is light and breezy, fresh, fruity and fun. Love it with lighter cheeses. Pass the appetizers, please

Domaine Paul Buisse Touraine Sauvignon

To Go With Appetizers


Domaine Paul Buisse Touraine Sauvignon starts with ripe grapefruit and apricot notes and ends with a clean, mouthwatering citrus finish. Yes to soft cheeses and light apps.

Grace Hale Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc

To Go With Appetizers


Grace Hale Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc shows all the hallmarks of a New Zealand sauvignon blanc: grapefruit, gooseberry, green grass notes — with bubbles! Shrimp cocktail, please.

Hattingley Valley Classic Reserve

To Go With Appetizers


Hattingley Valley Classic Reserve represents the third wave of the British Invasion — English sparkling wine! Vibrant, focused and elegant with apple, pear and toasty notes. Enjoy with the Brie.

Jacques Bardelot Champagne Brut

To Go With Appetizers


Jacques Bardelot Champagne Brut is crisp and fresh with notes of delicate apple, pear and white peach. Want a real Champagne? This is the one. Loves a chilled seafood tray.

Bread & Butter Chardonnay

To Go With Winter Soups


Bread & Butter Chardonnay is toasty, oaky and, yes, buttery. Ripe apple and tropical fruit notes make a delightful pairing with puréed winter vegetable soups.

Bench Pinot Noir

For The Big Turkey Dinner


Hands-down the wine team’s favorite holiday pinot noir, Bench Pinot Noir is fresh, with currant and dark fruit notes. It’ll be on my holiday table!

G.D. Vajra Barbera d’Alba

For The Big Turkey Dinner


An exciting red from Italy, G.D. Vajra Barbera d’Alba shows baked cherry pie notes, herbs and a complex earthiness. Keep a few open within easy reach of the meal.

Domaine Chanson Viré-Clessé

For The Big Turkey Dinner


Domaine Chanson Viré-Clessé is a gem of a French chardonnay. Ripe and subtly spicy with bright apple and lemon notes and a lovely thread of minerality. Yes to the turkey, yes to the stuffing.

Oyster Bay Rosé

To Go With That Ham


New Zealand’s Oyster Bay Rosé displays cherry floral aromatics, raspberry and citrus notes, and a distinct kiwi zest. Awesome with the salty-sweet combo of spiral-sliced ham and cornbread.

Jacques Bardelot Champagne Brut Rosé

For A Seafood Occasion


From a small, family producer, Jacques Bardelot Champagne Brut Rosé is fresh, satisfying and an incredible Champagne value. Great with salmon and creamy risottos.

Château Miqueu Haut-Médoc

For Your Steak Dinner


There isn’t a better Bordeaux than Château Miqueu Haut-Médoc in the market for the price. Period. Excellent with grilled steak. Loves hearty stews as well.

Bodini Cielo Rojo Red Blend

For Your Steak Dinner


Bodini Cielo Rojo Red Blend really over-delivers for the price. It’s ripe with dark fruit notes, chocolate and black pepper. Great with a good steak, equally at home with tacos and burgers.

Criterion Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

For A Special Occasion


Criterion Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is easily the special occasion wine for the holidays.


This Napa cab is dense with fruit, dark chocolate, espresso and cigar box notes. Open with the prime rib and sautéed mushrooms.

5th & Bowie Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon

In Case You Grill


5th & Bowie Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth and silky, dense and ripe and exceptionally balanced. Amazing with smoky brisket, short ribs or grilled root veggies.

Spirito d’Italia Pinot Grigio

For Party Foods


Spirito d’Italia Pinot Grigio is the perfect party wine — citrusy, floral and crisp. Great with easy party foods like crab and artichoke dip, chips and guac or … wait for it … queso!

Presto Sparkling Cuvée Cans

For Party Foods


Presto Sparkling Cuvée Cans are cute little cans of bubbly, full of orange blossom aromas, hints of caramel apple and a pleasant bite. Pair with olives, antipasti or anything you can eat with your fingers off a card table!

Presto Prosecco

For Brunch


Presto Prosecco is a crisp, playful, easy-sipping sparkler. Fresh orange blossom aromas and honey notes. Great with smoked meats and cheese, yes to brunch.

Camino Calixo Cava Brut Rosé

For Brunch

 

Camino Calixo Cava Brut Rosé shows real depth of flavor. Strawberry and fennel aromas, berry and brioche flavors and very fine bubbles. Great with salty foods, excellent with eggs benedict.

Don Simon Seleccion Brut

The Perfect Bubbly For Mimoasas


When you want a spot-on, straightforward bubbly perfect for mimosas, punches or anything else needing bubbles without a hefty price, go with Don Simon Seleccion Brut. We firmly stand behind this wine’s value for the money. Pair with orange juice.
