I am sure that you can relate that as a mom, military spouse, active service member, [insert any other title here], you can find your plate awfully full at times. To think that Thanksgiving is just two weeks away, my anxiety is escalating as I type since I have done NOTHING to prepare!

If you are a Colorado Springs local and find yourself in the same boat, I have taken one task off of your list: wine. I have collaborated with The Wine Gallery and Gourmet of Colorado Springs to develop a classic and traditional 3-bottle wine box for your Holiday festivities.

The Tasty Holiday Trio includes 3 wonderful wines and a beautiful wooden wine box for a pre-tax cost of $45 and can be picked up at your convenience at The Wine Gallery and Gourmet (5903 Delmonico Dr, Colorado Springs, CO 80919, (719) 439-9463). Below, I have listed the wines that you will find in the Tasty Holiday Trio as well as a brief description and my thought behind including them in the box.

1. This L’Ostal Cazes Rosé is a French Rosé with a 50% grenache, 50% Syrah blend. It’s slight sweetness is balanced with a tartness and it’s beautiful, almost-violet color will be a classy addition to your Traditional Thanksgiving.

2. This Bortoluzzi, Italian Chardonnay has a perfect balance of oak to satisfy any Chardonnay lover. It’s mellow and smooth nature will undoubtedly pair well with dressing, stuffing, and green bean casserole. This Chardonnay is a traditional pairing for your elegant meal.

3. I recently served this Cycles Gladiator Pinot Noir at a wine tasting in my home and it was appreciated by Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon-lovers alike. Though it is a lighter-bodied red wine, it’s balance and depth of flavor were satisfying for many wine palates. Additionally, the lightness of this Pinot Noir will not overwhelm your already full, after-dinner state on Turkey Day.


I wish you a wonderful holiday and hope that you too will enjoy the Tasty Holiday Trio at your dinner table!


If you are looking for a larger, more adventurous wine box for the holidays, I have designed The Holiday Sanity Saver, a six-bottle wine box for $90 (pre-tax), that can also be picked up at The Wine Gallery and Gourmet. Check out it’s contents here!
