The phenomenon of Mother’s Day goes well back to ancient 
Greek times, and really only in the past 100 years have we 
celebrated here in the United States (in Mexico it’s celebrated 
on Thursday May 10th). I heard on a radio commercial 
“don’t get mom a card this year, get her something she really 
wants.” Okay, it didn’t say, “get her a bottle of wine”, but for 
the sake of this article let’s get her a bottle of wine. Here are 
three wines that I have enjoyed with my mom. 

For sparkling wine fans, I really like the Domaine Carneros - 
affordable and easily found in your local supermarket aisles. 
This wine is as close to real champagne that I ever had!! 
Planning a backyard/Virtual BBQ for mom? This sparkler 
is perfect.. 

I see the billboards all over town, “come Stellabrate”. Stella 

Rosa Prosecco is the perfect wine for the pre-meal toast. The 
wine is full of mousse (bubbles) and goes well with light appetizers such as cheese and 
crackers. I’ve lost count of how many Stella Rosa products are on the shelves, but they are 
all light on calories and alcohol content. The price point is about $15 so you could afford 

Last but not least, a chardonnay. Moms love chardonnay - they can put a little ice in the 
glass or drink at room temperature. The Pouilly Fuisse, Louis Jardot’s white wine made 
with chardonnay grapes, is the pick here. It’s from Burgundy, France, but not bad on the 
wallet, and has a crispness that makes it an exceptional wine. It retails for about $25. 
There are white wines from the same region for a few dollars more, but hey - it’s mom we 
are talking here. Don’t be stingy! Whatever direction you take, have a great Mother’s Day! 

My mom just recently passed, but I will hoist this glass in her honor and for that matter 
to you as well.
