The first woman of your life, the woman who raised you, taught you right from wrong, and most importantly the woman who dealt with all of your childhood adventures. Whether you call her Mom, Mum, Mother, or Madre, the question still has to be answered, “What do I get her for Mother’s Day?”
The answer is easy: Wine. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. We’ve broken down four different types of moms and their wine personality to make it easier to decide which type of adult grape juice to get her.
1. Proper and Polished
For the mom who enjoys the finer things in life, may or may not own a set of pearls, and possibly has her pinky out when drinking her afternoon cup of tea. Stick to wines with higher wine scores like the 2013 Franciscan Estate Napa Valley Chardonnay, 2012 Wildcatter Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, or the 2007 Diamond Mountain Red Blend by Constant. Hint: Quality wines don’t always have to break the bank!
2. Earthy, Organic, and Natural
For the mom who cares about the existence of trans-fat, looks for 100% juice not from concentrate, and sees organic produce as a necessity. This organic mom cares about locally produced wines like the 2012 Stash Alexander Valley Chardonnay or the 2012 Hill Napa Pinot Noir. The 2012 Hill Napa Pinot Noir was made using sustainable farming techniques that produce a high quality product that tastes both amazing and benefits the Earth. One bottle of Hill Napa please!
3. Passion for Some Fashion
For the mom who grocery shops in stilettos, works out with jewelry, and will never be seen in public with sweats on. This fashionista loves the foreign wines like the 2013 Viva de los Andes Chardonnay and the 2012 Doña Catalina Carmenère Reserva from Chile. However, you can never go wrong with the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin Brut Champagne. Champagne and fashion go together like that peanut butter and jelly sandwich she used to pack for you during lunch.
4. Entertainer and Organizer
For the organized mom who knows how to best utilize her time, balance a list of never-ending tasks, and still put her hostess face on for her monthly dinner party. She’s the mom that just doesn’t quit. Stick to the bubbles like the Charles de Fere Blanc de Blancs, the Stash North Coast Blanc de Blanc Sparkling, or the ever-appropriate Mumm Napa Brut Prestige Sparkling Wine. Just grab some Mumm for your Mum this Mother’s Day!
