Thanks to Donnafugata, Landmark and Bonterra for inviting me to try the latest vintages of their wines. They provided free bottles in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

In honor of Mother’s Day as well as Wine Wednesday, here are 7 budget and splurge worthy wines for mom. All are available at Southwest Florida retailers or can be shipped direct from the winery. Yes, there is still time. 

There are so many ways to incorporate a good bottle of wine in your Mother’s Day activities or gifts besides. Wine goes well with chocolate or in a picnic basket. It is also perfect to pair with a beautiful big bouquet of flowers. 

In addition, it is thoughtful to include in a basket full of self-care products such as bubble bath, candles, eye masks, fuzzy slippers, etc. What a perfect gift for the mom who is stressed or overworked. Or anyone for that matter.

Perhaps buy a bottle and tie a gift certificate around the neck. You can even keep it all in the same theme such as a bottle of Little Black Dress wine with a gift card to White House Black Market so she can shop for a new little black dress. There are so many options and ways to get creative with wine.

As a wine connesuer I know labels don’t matter. It should be what’s in the glass that is important. However, as a wine writer, I know that labels DO matter. They catch our eye. They make a statement. So do these wines.

The Best Thing About Wines For Mom

There are so many ways to include wine in gifting, However, my favorite is simply to buy a bottle and share it with mom. Not just my own mother but also my sister-in-law and my best friends who have kids.

There is nothing quite like taking a few moments to get caught up or reminisce. And doing so over a nice glass of wine is even better.

Creating memories together is the best gift of all. 

Cheers to all of you hard working moms. Cheers to the retired moms as well and everyone in between. May you have a memorable Mother’s Day. 

Enjoy these 7 budget and splurge worthy wines for mom this Mother’s Day. Budget are in the $20 and under range. Splurges are over.
