Collection: Visiting the family

Planning on visiting the family (or the in-laws)? Make sure to bring the right wine. It will provide more life and interaction than another bunch of flowers. But which wine to bring? If you don't exactly know what everyone likes, the advice is to bring a wine made from unknown grapes. It makes everyone taste it without any prejudice!

Are you planning on bringing a white wine? In that case the wondefully fruity and slightly spicy Vermentino "La Pettegola" is perfect as an aperitif as well as being a perfect companion to the starter or to a good conversation. For those looking for a lighter and more light-bodied wine, there is the refreshing German Riesling of Von Winning. sweet wine from a German Riesling, but this refreshing surprise certainly gives a lot of food for discussion!

Do you want to make a great impression with a full-bodied white wine? Then the personal favourite of Gianmarco, the French Viognier van Yves Cuilleron, is the wine you should bring. Full, complex with lots of fruit, spiciness and yet refreshing. Be sure to take it out of the fridge at least three quarters of an hour before drinking it (the perfect excuse to open it immediately after the long journey to the family)!

Would you rather bring a red wine? Let's then start out with the surprising Argentinian Cabernet Franc by Catena. A grape that is not often used to make a single-variety wine. Let alone in the home of Malbec; Argentina! This fruity semi-full red wine with a slightly herbaceous flavour that makes it delicious to drink on its own, but the refreshing acidity also makes for a delicious combination with not too heavy dishes!

Do you prefer a slightly fuller wine that is still fruity, easygoing and slightly spicy? Then make sure to bring the Languedoc Rouge from Château de Gaure with its combination of Carignan and Syrah. The slight spiciness makes it perfect to combine with dinner. Looking for a fulld-bodied spicy wine to acompany a big and heavy main course? In that case the Catalan Tinto Petit Comité del Sió is the perfect accompinament to many automn and winter dishes! (Also nice to combine with its white twin)

Are you planning to impress with a wine with a unique story? The South African Seriously Old Dirt (perhaps not the best name to bring to the in-laws…) is a perfect wine. It is a wine resulting from a collaboration between the winemaker of Opus One (min. €300-400 per bottle) and the South African winery Warwick. It's a wonderful example of a French Bordeaux blend from South Africa! Would you prefer something classic? Then the Brunello di Montalcino by Castello Banfi is a fine example of the elegance and passion that is possible in Italian wine!
