Toast of the Town 2022

The days are steadily growing shorter, and whether you are already nostalgic for the endless summer sunshine, looking forward to a break from the Southern heat, or you’ve had your pumpkin décor out since the end of July, fall is prime porch-sitting time. For those watching sunsets from their rocking chairs, there’s a Chardonnay to keep your summer spirit alive. If you’re curled up on the glider with a cozy blanket, try the red blend. Or, if your style is more camp chair by the fire, we’ve got the perfect whiskey recommendation for you.

Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay

Bright and fresh, this Chardonnay was sourced from vineyards along the banks of the Russian River and aged in stainless-steel tanks with no oak contact. As you bring the wine to your nose, you’ll notice orange blossom, tropical fruit, and a hint of almond biscotti. On the tongue, you’ll experience melon and mango flavors with a creamy custard finish and a snappy ginger spice that lingers.

Caymus Suisun The Walking Fool

Named for a relative who preferred walking to other modes of traveling, The Walking Fool is a polished red blend from the Wagner family and produced in Suisun Valley, a bit off the beaten path near Napa. A lively wine that features notes of juicy summer raspberries and warm espresso, it’s a great choice for the wistful space between seasons. On the finish is a trace of vibrant cranberry and a touch of luxurious cocoa.

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Fire

This classic fall whiskey needs no introduction. The pairing of fiery cinnamon liqueur with smooth Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 is just meant for autumn. Try a Cinnamon Toast shot with Tennessee Fire and RumChata, or follow up a shot of whiskey with a crisp, cool hard cider for all the best of the season’s cinnamon and apple flavors.

 

RumChata

This unusual but delicious liqueur is a rich and spicy blend of Caribbean rum, Mexican spice, and Wisconsin dairy cream. With its distinct cinnamon-vanilla flavor, RumChata is a great addition to any bar cart – you can enjoy it over ice, or add it to a hot drink like fresh-brewed coffee or chai. It’s the perfect choice for relaxing by the fire on brisk fall weekends.
