With restrictions increasing and changing by the day during the COVID-19 pandemic, what’s a wine lover to do? Many of us are no doubt opting to have house-goods, food, and wine delivered whenever available. Finding just about anything you could dream of online is a possibility these days, so wine lovers need not fret!
This said, as I shop through the virtual wine aisles, I’m finding myself reverting back to the classics and being a little less adventurous with my shopping cart selections than I would if, say, I were at my local wine store chatting it up with my knowledgeable, trusty wine clerk.
But the truth is, now is the time to try new things to challenge yourself and not rely on the mundane or the ordinary.
Thus, in the spirit of staying bold and keeping your palate excited, delighted, and tantalized, with the help of the tasting team at OmVino, we’ve developed a list of unique, new wine recommendations to guide you as you shop Vegan Wines – based on what you already like!
