VinoDuo's Favorite Wines of 2019

In our line of work/play, you taste a lot of wine. Some you sip and instantly spit. Some you sip, swirl, and then spit. Then there are those you savor, drink fully, and remember. These are the wines we’ve compiled into our favorite wines of the year list. Most are reasonably priced. Some are cheap. And a couple are pricey but worth the splurge. Try a few and let us know if they make your favorites list.

Salut, Skoal, l’chaim and cheers to 2020!
