Who would have thought we would be celebrating Mother’s Day under quarantine? Times have changed due to COVID-19, and Mother’s Day means more than ever as a result. Many mothers and children are separated due to shelter-in-place restrictions. Even husbands and wives are social distancing under these strange circumstances.
We can take this opportunity to show our mothers how much we love and respect them. Let’s make this Mother’s Day the MOST special day she has experienced.
Instead of buying her more stuff, get her something she really wants. Here are a few ideas to create a unique experience for mothers who enjoy wine.
For Flowery Moms: Rosé
If your mom loves rosé, ship her a case of Rosé All Day in a can for only $79.98. The case has six 4-packs for a total of 24 cans, equal to eight standard bottles of wine. Budget-friendly for you, mom will have enough to last the quarantine.
For those who can afford to spend a little more, send mom a six-pack of three different wines so she can try something new. Add a bouquet of pink roses and a cute, pink coronavirus facemask. Free shipping on every six-pack.
- 2017 Martellotto Rosé La Rosa Santa Barbara ($14.99)
- 2019 Stolpman Para Maria Rosé ($17.99)
- 2019 Whispering Angel Rosé ($29.99)
For big spenders watching their dollars, send her a bottle of Champagne Vieille France Rosé by Charles de Cazanove ($47.99). This affordable and expressive rosé champagne will highlight her day.
Juicy with ripe red fruit flavors and subtle spices and nuts, the wine has a fine texture and a long finish. She’ll want to save the gorgeous original bell-shaped bottle after savoring the wine.
For Bubbly Moms: Sparkling Wine
If your mom has a sparkling personality, send her a wine to match. You can choose from many options, starting with Prosecco all the way to the fancy stuff, depending on your budget.
- Rosé All Day with Bubbles gives mom all the rose love in a sparkling version and for the same price. With 24 cans, she’ll be toasting you every day.
- Prosecco continues to be popular. Impress her with the San Venanzio Fortunato Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG Brut, known for its higher quality and only $19.98.
- Send her to France with a lovely sparkling rosé, the Veuve Ambal Brut Rosé Collection Crémant de Bourgogne ($23.98) from Burgundy. The blend of 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir, and 20% Gamay would be perfect for brunch. Made in the champagne style and wrapped in a bubble-gum pink bottle, it’s sure to make her smile.
For the true champagne lover, these two are great choices:
A harmonious blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 10% Meunier, the Collet is rich, powerful, elegant, and fresh.
A darker rosé than most, the Jacquart smells of cherries and strawberries. Drinking more like a wine than a sparkler, she can enjoy this with dinner.
For Spicy Moms
If your mom makes a strong impression, we have many wines to thrill her. Here are three:
Secrets del Mar, though complex, is surprisingly fresh and soft. Strong, elegant mothers will love this wine made from 30 year old vines. With a deep red-violet color, it smells of red and black fruit with a spicy finish. An unusual blend of 60% Carignan, 35% Grenache Noir, 5% Syrah, mom can serve this wine chilled on a hot day.
This blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% Graciano has a bright cherry color and an aroma of raspberries and baking spices. The traditional yet stylish Rioja will surprise with its easy-drinking pleasure. When your lively mom needs a relaxing moment, she’ll want to open this one.
An epic wine with strong blackberry and ripe plum flavors and aromas of violets and white pepper, this one will appeal to mothers of powerful character who want a bold wine. It may become her new favorite.
For Global Moms: Madre, Mère, Mãe, Mutter, Moeder
Does your mom like a variety of wines from such countries as Spain, Argentina, Mexico, Italy, France, Portugal, Germany, or South Africa? We have a global selection. Try our White Wines of the World Sampler six-pack ($119.99) or some of these offerings for adventurous mothers:
A wine with a perfume of dark cherries and dark chocolate and a rich texture. Once she tastes this one, she may not want to share it.
Made from equal amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Tempranillo, the 3V is reminiscent of red cherry pie in a silky, drinkable form. A versatile wine, she can pair it with many foods from hamburgers to steak.
A WOW wine! If your mom is an explorer, she’ll appreciate this wine. Many people believe Rieslings are sweet, but this iconic producer created a beautiful dry wine. With its golden color and complex aromas, the wine feels silky in the mouth. The citrusy flavors pair well with rich seafood or dishes such as duck or veal.
The harmonious blend of 45% Cabernet Franc, 18% Malbec, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot drinks like a good Bordeaux. Classy moms will enjoy this medium-bodied wine with a fine meal.
For Eclectic Mothers
Mothers who go their own way want something unique when they taste wine. Here are some to appeal to her “out of the box” nature:
An unusual blend of 70% Chardonnay, 25% Viognier, and 5% of the wonderfully aromatic Torrontes, this wine drinks like summer. Torrontes is an uncommon grape from Argentina. Evocative of a juicy mix of pears, peaches, and melons, this exotic and pure wine will transport your mom beyond her normal day.
- 2018 Erastos Bianco White Blend IGT ($18.99)
Combining traditional grapes Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier in a new way, Erastos created this unusual wine. Chardonnay contributes a round mouthfeel and flavors of apples and pears. The Sauvignon Blanc adds freshness and citrus notes, and the Viognier expresses honeysuckle aromas. Mom can drink it with a charcuterie board or with chicken or seafood.
- 2017 Ogier Vacqueyras "Boiseraie" ($23.98)
From the famous Chateauneuf-de-Pape region, the Ogier expresses elegance more than power. A blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre, the wine is a cornucopia of fruits, herbs, and flowers. A great food wine, it will be mom’s go-to wine for outdoor cooking. Deep red with herbal aromas and dark berry flavors, it has a bold personality, just like mom.
