Now that the holidays are behind us, you might be looking at your wine inventory and noticing a portion of your once curated collection has mysteriously gone missing. Perhaps you reached for a few well-earned, special-occasion bottles during the festivities or, depending on the size of your gatherings and variety of dishes, leaned into the faithful staples that never let you down. Either way, if your wine fridge is looking sad and hollow, here is an opportunity to refuel and replenish on the right foot—meaning a timely discount. We’ve picked some of our most trustworthy selections from Piedmont to the Pays d’Oc, from up north in the Loire to as far south as Sicily and Corsica—to name a few. This sampler features mineral and racy whites, bright peppery reds, and some fuller-bodied and rustic gems to keep even the most curious palates surprised and satiated.
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
