3 Reasons Early Mountain Deserves a Spot under the Tree

Seeking the perfect gift? Want to make sure it fits and will be loved? We're so thrilled to share some recommendations with which we can't help but agree...

#1 The team at VinePair, our go-to for clever infographics, smart listicles, and helpful wine reviews, released The 50 Best Wines of 2018.... and Early Mountain Rosé made the list! They report that "Early Mountain is the real deal. Old World in style, the stunning, low-alcohol wine has aromatic herbs and fruit on the nose, and bright red berries mixed with roses on the palate.

#2 Forbes contributor Katie Kelly Bell addresses the question, "can you suggest a nice gift wine in the $50?" in her gift guide... including Early Mountain Eluvium! She describes this stunner as, "Savory, with concentrated red and black cherry notes and a nice thread of earth and shows elegance with fine structure and soft tannins." Following James Suckling's 95 pt review and the Governor's Case win earlier this year, we might need to keep this bottle for ourselves!

#3 Bloomberg wine writer Elin McCoy includes Early Mountain Petit Manseng in her 50 Best Wines under $50. She writes that this "round, honeyed, orange-scented white illustrates the grape’s potential in Virginia" on a list of wines that "deliver both value and sheer deliciousness for the price".

So whether selecting wines for the table or under the tree, we'd love to be part of your holidays.
