The holidays are here and that means one thing: DRINKS! Okay, so maybe it’s like that ALL year ’round, but let’s pretend like we’re not all functioning drunks, K? Delish.com has put together a list of wines that you’ll love, according to your zodiac sign.
And, I’m not sure what the information is based off, but mine is pretty spot-on. So, there’s that. I’ve beefed up the list with some wines you could try, and a few other fun wine trinkets for the wine lover on your list (wine not?).
