Gift Wines For the Hostess




Bring the host or hostess something local, maybe something they have never tasted before and will love to share.Red Raspberry WineThe Red Raspberry Wine from LaBelle Winery is easy to like. The initial taste of raspberry is bold without being overwhelming, and it's sweet, not cloying. This is a perfect gift to surprise a wine lover. Would pair well with fruit, cheese or could be the dessert itself. $16.49LaBelle Winery, 100 Chestnut Hill Rd., Amherst labellewinery.comHeritage Red Dessert WineThis wine may require a bit of a learning curve with pure New Hampshire maple syrup blended into red grape wine. It has a nutty aroma with a hint of black cherry. $12.95Flag Hill Winery, 297 N. River Rd., Lee flaghillenterprises.comFarmhouse CiderThis would be perfect to bring to an open house.
