Weekly Love List: Four Affordable Wines to Bring to Your Next “Stock the Bar”

Each week, we ask the our D Weddings editors to share their current crushes—from skincare regimes, honeymoon destinations, or registry must-haves. Consider “The Weekly Love List” your D Weddings editor-approved wish list for before, during, and after wedding day.

Blason Cremant de Bourgogne

“There is a certain stress attempting to buy high-quality wine for special occasions, especially on a budget. I regularly refer to my wine-auctioning friend who shares her expertise regularly on 20 Sommthings. While she has a more refined palate than most, she recommends Blason Cremant de Bourgogne at Trader Joe’s for budget bubbles.”

—Mary McMullen Welch

19 Crimes the Warden

“So my go-to is a low-ball wine called 19 Crimes the Warden. It is really good for the fall and winter months—not to mention the cool bottle design.”

—Morganne Stewart

2013 Stags Leap Merlot

“For a recent stock-the-bar shower, I bought this 2013 Stags Leap merlot, coming in at $33. My family drank this Napa Valley label as our holiday table wine a few years back, and it’s been a favorite ever since.”

—Sarah Bennett

Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava

“Bubbles always feel appropriate for a celebration. They say ‘I like to be fancy while getting tipsy!’ For an affordable bottle, I go for Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut Cava.”
