Bottles Away!

By now, our stomachs are likely back to their normal pre-gorged sizes (and we're hoping that means your Thanksgiving was just as de-lush-ious as ours). The challenging part? It's time to get ready to do it all over again.

With the turkey is off the table, its time to start thinking about this "seasons greetings." After all, Hanukkah kicks off tomorrow and Santa makes his way to town in just 4 weeks!

WinoBee is currently compiling our annual "Naughty & Nice" list for winos and wino wannabes, so keep your eyes peeled on all the fun yet to come. In the meantime, we uncovered this fun little game to gear you up for holiday entertaining - it also will put your wine buying skills to the test.

The Bordeaux Wine Council wants to help you find affordable selections for your holiday festivities and in turn created a Facebook game called "Bottles Away" which challenges players to pick six wines from shelves in 60 seconds that add up to $100 or less. At the end of the sixty seconds, the player is given the names and availability of the wines they have selected. Demo the game and test your skills here!

But wine buying isn't all fun and games. After all, we do want to actually drink wine at our holiday parties, which is why Bordeaux asked their wine buffs for their favorite bottles under $100 this season. If you're in the market, click here.
