Fall for Reds

Wine Chateau – the premier destination for fine wine.

This Summer we had our fair share of delicious white wines, but now that Fall is in the air the cooler weather just calls for some red. Harvests and Holidays…greatest time of the year! In the next few weeks we will be highlighting some our favorite affordable reds. With the holidays approaching, you want to be prepared to pick up a bottle for a dinner or event that you know will be a hit. You can also save yourself a trip or conveniently order some as gifts online too! These wines won’t break the bank or compromise taste…cheers!
