I don’t know about you guys, but I love having guests over to my place. To me, there’s nothing better than having a bunch of friends over, and enjoying some food, wine and laughs together, especially on a Summer night. I have a group of girl friends that I’ve been getting together since before college, and I always love putting together a great selection of drinks and bites for them when they come over.
For me, one of the hardest parts about the entertaining process is always picking out the wine. I’m by no means a wine expert, so the whole process can be really uneasy for me. I always want to pick out wines that I think people will enjoy, and something that’s unique — I always think that’s part of the fun of having guests over — exposing them to something they may not be already having.
That’s why I’m so excited to share more about Millesima USA, my partner for this post. It’s the American wing of a European fine wine e-commerce platform. Millesima puts together some of the most sought after fine wines that range in prices from under twenty dollars to thousands of dollars for some of their rare, fine wines. And they have all of these wines intuitively categorized easily searchable and ready to order on their website.
What I love about Millesima is that they extensively detail each wine. They include information about the wine’s country, region, producer, grape varieties, ratings, and more. For many they also include the background of the wine, and some commentary, so that you really know what you’re getting. That makes things easier when picking out wines to get for any gathering, special occasion, or even just picking out a bunch of wines to keep at home for whenever you feel like opening up a bottle. Their website is super simple and easy to navigate, which makes it even easier to find the wines that you want.
I also love having all of the wine information handy in case my guests asks me about it!
Anyway, after spending some time exploring their site, I decided to pick out a few different wines for a casual Summer gathering with some friends. I went with:
When I was picking these out, one of the things that I really appreciated was Millesima’s customer service. They answered the phone right away and were incredibly helpful in answering all of the questions I had.
I put this together with a cheese plate, some berries and grapes, and a bunch of sweets — some raspberry macarons, coconut macaroons, cookies, and cupcakes.
I highly recommend using Millesima USA for your next wine shopping experience. Go to their website to check out their incredible selection.
