Celebrate National Merlot Day: Discover the Richness of Wine

There are very few things better than wine and charcuterie with your best friends. Whether you’re watching the Golden Bachelor, having a game night, or just taking a night off from the bars, here are some essentials for hosting a winning wine night.

Merlot Wine

Merlot is a full-bodied, silky wine known for its dark blue, almost black color. It originates from Bordeaux, France, and features flavors of black cherry, plum, and blueberries with hints of cocoa and spice. Its soft tannins and moderate acidity make it a versatile pairing for many dishes.


One of the biggest signs of becoming an adult is moving from twist-off wine bottles to ones with an actual cork.

It might seem pretty obvious, but coming from someone who has forgotten a corkscrew and really wanted some wine and tried everything from the lighter trick to using a screwdriver, a corkscrew is pretty important.

This one also has a bottle opener on the other side, and a latch that makes it super easy to get the cork out. 

Wine Glass Markers

Drinking wine out of a normal cup just feels so… college. A cute set of wine glasses is a must-have for young adults. This set is pretty basic if you’re balling on a budget, but you can also splurge a little more and get a set that can be the centerpiece of a bar cart.

Wine markers are not only a super cute accessory, but they make sure no one’s glasses get confused. Some go around the base of the glass, but these ones stick to the actual glass and come in a bunch of different colors. 

Wine Stopper

I’m not usually the kind of person that leaves a half-empty bottle of wine unfinished… but just in case you want to save the rest of your bottle, this wine saver and stopper allows you to get excess air out so that your wine stays fresh until your next wine night. 

Snack Board

You can make any kind of snack board that you like, not just necessarily a traditional charcuterie board, but serving it on a sleek wooden board makes anything look super chic and perfect for an Insta story.
