When I was little and my parents had dinner parties, I always knew it meant our house would be filled with a bunch of boring, "old" people telling jokes and drinking wine. But now dinner parties have a fun, lively vibe and are usually hosted by 20 and 30 somethings (what I used to consider old… yikes!)

The next time you're hosting a dinner party, casual or otherwise, I highly recommend serving Porter and Plot. Porter & Plot creates wines of exceptional quality from lesser known varietals with a distinctive story. The winemakers create limited-production artisan wines to bring drinkers access to micro-production bottles with the same availability you would experience from a macro-producer.

Porter and Plot is complex without being intimidating and smooth without being boring. The perfect blend to serve to your guests, no matter how (un)sophisticated their wine palate may be.

Want to spice up your wine? Mix up the sangria below for the perfect sip to welcome spring.
