More about this wine from Burgenland, Austria
Two grapes walk into a bar... JK! Would you believe us if we told you that this grape is named after a guy called Dr. Zweigelt?!?! Well, in 1922, the good doctor took two grapes, St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch, and crossed them together to make Zweigelt, which is now the most planted varietal in Austria. The grape is really the best of both of its parents. The St. Laurent gives it that nice ripe cherry, while the Blaufränkisch imparts the spice.

The wine is velvety smooth and the body is definitely on the lighter end of the spectrum making it gulp-able without weighing you down during all the holiday meals on your calendar this season. As you sip, your brain might think you've found dark cherry Kool-Aid, but a more complex and only-for-adults version. And by adults, we just mean 21 and older. No judgments on your inner child making an appearance this holiday season.
How to drink it

While...

Wednesday night listening to Mrs. by Leon Bridges and thumbing your way though a Vienna travel guide. Look at you, surviving half of the week and getting smarter too.

Eating...

any meat at your holiday feast. One of the more versatile red wines around making it a great holiday season wine because it pairs with turkey, ham, and the tofu mold that only your guests from Brooklyn eat.
