What? Not done with your holiday shopping? Yeah, neither are we. But we've been making lists -- and checking them twice -- and we've got some suggestions for the nice people on your list. Today, Chow Bella's Gift Guide for the Wine Lover.
A lot of people don't know that wine is being made here in Arizona, and many who do know it look askance, if not outright scoff, at Arizona wine. But the truth is that really fantastic wine can be found within our great state's borders. So for those of you who have a skeptical wine lover on your holiday shopping list I suggest buying them one or more of these eye opening and surprisingly good Arizona wines to change their minds.
Winemaker Time White's Arizona Stronghold Chardonnay Inside of the nifty, colorful packaging sits a solid, enjoyable Chardonnay by Arizona Stronghold. Fairly ripe with passion fruit and mango notes along with balanced acidity, this Chard deserves a seat at the table next to many Chardonnays from California in the same price range. You can find Arizona Stronghold's wines all over the place, I've even seen this one at Fry's, usually priced around $17 to $20.
