As a way to make your upcoming book club meeting extra special, Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club is teaming up with SIMI Winery on a limited-edition holiday box set of wine dedicated to “page-turning, glass-filling women,” with options to please a crowd or a smaller crew as you sip and chat about the latest and greatest literary adventures you’ve enjoyed.
The Editor’s Collection includes a Set Of 2 Bottles ($45) and a Set Of 6 Bottles ($120), each offering two tasty selections from the California-based wine company’s most loved offerings. The 2018 SIMI Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon includes notes of red and black fruits, smooth tannins, and soft spice that give way to a velvety finish, per the description, pairing perfectly with “seasonal comfort foods and holiday dishes” such as pappardelle, lamb, duck, prime rib, and chocolate desserts.”
There’s also the 2019 SIMI Sonoma County Chardonnay. With notes of pear and tropical fruits, crisp acidity, and gentle oak spice, this pick makes a great match for seasonal favorites such as pumpkin ravioli, butternut squash, mashed potatoes, turkey, chicken, goose, and apple pie.
An extra-special bonus: Proceeds from the collaboration will The Readership, the book club’s pay-it-forward initiative that helps to support and empower diverse writers, independent book sellers, and increasing access to books so that the love of literature can be available to all. Cheers to that, indeed.
