A great gift to give during the festive season is wine. There are many options out there, but one I have just been introduced to is Thorny Rose.
With a refreshing, medium-bodied style, Thorny Rose is an affordable ($11) and delicious wine, making it a great stocking stuffer, holiday party hostess gift or a token of appreciation for your office BFF.
The invite-only crowd sipped the new varietals (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and Red Blend), and enjoyed specialty small bites, including Grilled Cheese & Beef Short Rib, Fresh Ricotta Bruschetta with Fig, Truffle Risotto Balls, Chicken Empanadas and Mini Creme Brulee Pear Tarts for dessert.
While guests bowled strikes and played custom Jenga games, the famed indie pop band the White Arrows kept the hip crowd moving with their DJ set and live performance.
