9 Red Wine Picks for Fall Entertaining

9 red wines for fall

I’ve mentioned before that I like to switch to red wine in the Fall. It just feels more comforting, maybe because the serving temperature is higher and warms you up rather than “cools you down” like a white wine in summer.

We love trying new wines and Pinot Noir and Petite Syrah {or Shiraz} are our favorites, however we do like to indulge in the occasional Cab or Chianti. Blends are usually pretty tasty too, and seem to go well with almost any type of food. With this in mind, I’m sharing some of our favorite wines to sip during these cooler months. These include some great picks for Friday happy hour when you may not want to spend much money, as well as some higher priced wines that are terrific for sharing and entertaining with. Nothing is over $30 though.

Make sure you serve these at around 55 degrees. If you don’t have a wine fridge you can put the bottle in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to cool it down from the typical household temperature of around 70 degrees. Also, I highly advise you to invest in a wine aerator if you’re prone to drinking red wine. It makes such a difference in the taste.

  1. Yellow Tail Shiraz
  2. Redwood Creek Pinot Noir
  3. Woodbridge Cabernet
  4. Dead Bolt Red Blend
  5. Bogle Petite Syrah
  6. Francis Ford Coppola Cabernet
  7. J. Lohr Pinot Noir
  8. Santa Margherita Chianti
  9. Sterling Pinot Noir

For the purpose of this post I’m not going into detail about tasting notes or flavor profiles. I just wanted to share some of the wines that we enjoy, and think you will too. The fun is all in the tasting anyway, right!
