Stay-at-Home Wine Survival Kit

Updated: May 18, 2020

5 full & half bottles to make life a little easier.

Wine bottles, books, and toilet paper.

Are you trying to find ways to cope at home? Are your kids getting to you? Is your home feeling smaller and smaller every day? Are you looking for great wine suggestions? I’ve got some for you!


While we shelter-in-place, it’s important to hold on to our sanity. One way to do that is by pampering ourselves – just a bit. That’s why I’ve put together this Wine Survival Kit. It’s a nice little list of some delicious wine that’s available in full and half-sized bottles.


If there is only one wine lover in your house, then the smaller bottle is a great option! It gives you 2.5 glasses of wine. That way you can have a glass while cooking and then the rest with dinner. And with those smaller bottles, you can try a variety of wine more easily.

There is nothing more versatile to pair with food than Pinot Noir. No matter what you’re fixing for dinner this wine will likely pair with it easily. It’s great with fish, red meat, chicken, you name it. That’s why we always have Pinot on hand in our household. Delish!
