Coffee Talk: Favorite Wine for Under $10 & National Cupcake Day Wine Tastings

We believe no one should ever show up to a holiday party empty-handed, but being a thoughtful guest can get expensive. A bottle of wine for under $10 makes the perfect hostess gift and can double as extra hooch if the night carries on and the eggnog disappears! Our go-to budget-friendly bottle? Cupcake Vineyard, preferably in Chardonnay and Red Velvet, no matter the occasion. Whether we are enjoying a glass (or three) with the girls or hosting a dinner party, Cupcake takes the cake for the us given the price point and lack of headache in the morning. Of course, we’re always looking for new options so tell us: what is your favorite wine for under $10?

Also, on Friday, Cupcake Vineyards is toasting National Cupcake Day! They will be in New York City giving away cupcakes from their cupcake truck and offering free tastings at select stores throughout the city. Lucky New Yorkers. Check out times and locations here:
