Wine barrels and crushed wine grapes

October 15th is National Red Wine Day

Today, October 15th, is National Red Wine Day. As if many of you needed an actual day to celebrate red wine, right?

Looking for a new red wine to try for this National Red Wine Day? You could pair up your favorite wine to your pop culture obsession of the moment, or reach for a classic. Either way, you’re sure to enjoy.


Downton Abbey Bordeaux Claret – Can’t get enough of Downton Abbey from just watching the show? This red wine is an elegant, dry version with a deep, rich color and excellent clarity. The bouquet exhibits strong notes of wild blackberries, blueberries and red currants, along with delicate aromas of spices. The wine has a smoothing finish of black currant and light floral notes. Be sure to break out the fine lead crystal for this one.

Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin –  Feeling a little, naughty? This Fifty Shades of Grey Red Satin is a decadent red blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah with flavors of black cherry, cocoa powder, creamy caramel and vanilla, leather and clove spice. Aged in a combination of new and neutral French oak barrels, this red blend is the perfect indulgence.  No need for restraint.

voga-italia-dolce-rosso-wine VOGA Italia’s Dolce Rosso combines a supple blend of Italian Syrah and Merlot, offering up tantalizing flavors of plum and cherry to entice the palate and deliver a smooth, lingering taste. Great for daylight delights or evening temptations, VOGA Italia’s Dolce Rosso is the perfect way to celebrate “la dolce vita” – the sweet life.

voga-italia-red-fusion-wine VOGA Italia’s Red Fusion is made from a blend of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon from Salento, known as the “heel of the Italian boot”. Bursting with blackberry, black cherry and black raspberry notes, Red Fusion has a jammy fruit character on the palate and a hint of mint on the nose. The tannin structure and oak aging provide balance, complexity and a long, delicate finish to this contemporary, food-friendly blend.

  1. I absolutely LOVE wine. You should really try Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel. They have some more pricey ones, but this one is still wonderful.

  2. Yummy! I love some of your choices, a couple I must try!
