Our Favorite Wines to Sip This Fall

Our Favorite Wines to Sip This Fall

Autumn is almost here, and it’s one of the best times of the year for wineries and wine lovers alike. At vineyards everywhere, days get longer, air cools, and leaves on the vines start to get that rim of gold. Amber spreads across each leaf, warming to rich brown and then the grand finale – a sea of fiery red grapevines. As you sit out on your own deck and take in the landscape of fall color, the only thing we can think of that would make it better is a great bottle of wine to sip. Whether it’s a white or a red, here are our favorite wines to sip this fall! Warm Autumnal Reds Kendall Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon opens with deep black cherry, blackberry, and cassis flavors. Intense, round, and well-structured tannins lead to a strong backbone throughout the middle and finish.   Decoy Zinfandel‘s lovely dark violet color and luscious fruit aromas show that this wine captures the alluring essence of Sonoma County Zinfandel. On the palate, layers of blueberry and cassis are underscored by structure that makes way for refined tannins, balanced acidity and oak.   Erath Pinot Noir has black cherry aromas that are underscored by sweet mandarin orange and caramel. The wine opens on the palate with notes of sweet black cherry and ends seamlessly into a supple mouthfeel.     Lush Golden Whites Elk Cove Pinot Gris Giving off sweet and light aromas of citrus blossom and grapefruit, this creamy and lush wine offers lovely apple and pear flavors, while showing crispness on the palette. Medium-bodied and balanced, serve this white wine with salmon,...
Three Easy Ways to Love Your Workweek

Three Easy Ways to Love Your Workweek

It’s no secret in this day and age – stress can do an incredible amount of harm. According to The American Institute of Stress, the top cause of stress in the United States is, in fact, job pressure. Over 70% of American adults say they experience negative physical and mental symptoms directly caused by stress. With the demands placed on the roles of the American economy, business and working classes, it’s no wonder we’re more stressed out than ever. However, there are little things you can do to help lessen the blow of a tough day in the office. Here are three easy ways to love your workweek just a little bit more, and make the atmosphere at work a little easier to handle. 1. Chill! Make sure you unwind after a long day. Stressful days at the office or running around town require downtime in the evening. Take the time to relax and shake off the day’s tension so that you can feel rejuvenated and ready for the next day. Here’s a quick list of easy things you can do that may help you wind down: Walk the dog around the neighborhood or local park. Sit down with your spouse or family and enjoy dinner slowly. Take a hot bath – epsom salts,  bath bombs and face masks are great additions. Curl up under a lamp with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of hot tea.     2. Deck Your Desk! Make your workspace an environment that you actually enjoy being in. Studies show that a well-designed office space and increase productivity and...
September Birth Flower: Aster

September Birth Flower: Aster

Did you know every birth month has its own flower? Each of those flowers has its own dedicated meaning, as well. It’s believed that the Romans began this tradition, and the Victorian era also brought floriography, the language of flowers. Growing wild all over the world since ancient times, let’s give a nod to the September birth flower: aster. With their lush texture and wildflower-like beauty, it’s no wonder that Asters symbolize daintiness and elegance. Asters get their name from the Greek word for “star” – note the pointed petals bursting out from an energetic center. There are over 180 different species of aster, making asters a gorgeous addition to many different types of bouquets. Adorable, Alluring Aster Bouquets GiftTree’s fresh flower bouquets are never delivered in the box, leaving the recipient to find a vase, trim and arrange the bouquet themselves. Our expert florists are located all over the country, arranging bouquets in glass vases and delivering them in perfect condition. Want to know the other months’ birth flowers and their meaning? Here’s a quick guide to glance at! Check back on GiftTree’s blog every first Monday of the month over the next year. We’ll be featuring that month’s birth flower as well as showing you our beautiful bouquets that feature the flower.
