Celebrate the Biden/Harris inauguration with this biographical wine package!

Joe Biden hails from Scranton, PA and his wife, Jill, was born down the interstate in Willow Grove. So we stopped halfway between the two for some wine from Galen Glen Winery. “Red German Bastards” is a blend of three, German grapes that we think speaks to our straight-talking new president. Biden also happens to be only the 2nd Catholic president (after JFK). He has visited the Vatican, and the Pope was among the earliest to call with congratulations on his 2020 win. So, we think a wine from Lazio – the location of Rome and the Vatican – is fitting. Casale Marchese Frascati Superiore is a down-to-earth crowd pleaser made with local, white grapes including Bellone and Bonvino.

This inauguration isn’t just about the President! This historic, incoming administration features the first woman Vice-President, Kamala Harris. Harris was born in California, into a family that melds Jamaican, Indian, and American roots. We think Land of Saints reflects that blend of cultures in its own products. Land of Saints is a collaboration between owners of Kiwi, Cornish, and Mexican-American descent, bringing together multiple cultures under the California sun. Angela Osborne is the winemaker and she is well known for her grenache. We’ve selected Land of Saints Grenache + Syrah for your enjoyment. Harris is not just the first female VP, she is also a Black woman. So, let’s break out the bubbles from the McBride Sisters – the largest Black-owned winery - whose Brut Rosé will get the party started!
