We asked Leslie Sbrocco, our Director of Sommology, to share her Gift Giving Guide to wine this holiday. From the music lover to the adventurer, she’s got a Traveling Vineyard wine that will make everyone on your list smile.  

The Music Lover

From high notes to low … showy choruses to nuanced arias… music lovers like you covet balance. 2018 Five String Partner’s Reserve, Paso Robles Petite Sirah, offers boldness wrapped in smoothness making it a perfectly composed sip.

The Activist

Whether you support a cause or simply believe in great wine,  2016 Activist Private Reserve, Santa Barbara County Syrah is your choice. Unapologetically bold and spicy, it’s a red with a delicious point of view. Activist has also earned a gold rating from the World Wine Championships and Tastings.com.
