Wine of the Month with Bright Cellars
Halloween season is upon us and that means fully indulging in everything spooky. We’re talking about karaoking to “I Put a Spell on You”, secretly swiping one (or ten) candies meant for trick or treaters, and enjoying great tasting wine!
Just for us, Bright Cellars is offering 50% off your first box (yep, you read that right – 50% off for Carnies).
Love trying new wines, or want to change up your usual? Our friends at Bright Cellars recommend Watchkeeper Tempranillo this month. It’s the perfect red wine to sip and keep warm as the chilly weather of October begins. Keep reading for details on Watchkeeper.
Inspired by two mysterious statues appearing along Route 66 in the middle of the Mojave desert, Watchkeeper Tempranillo’s full-bodied red combines notes of vanilla with bright fruits such as raspberry and strawberry to create a flavor that is just as mysterious and intriguing as the tale it is named after.
Not convinced Watchkeeper is the hauntingly delicious wine for you? Bright Cellars has a short, 7-question quiz that matches wine to your taste preferences — and they even deliver it right to your door every month.
