Tonight is the season finale of The Bachelorette, and while we can’t tell you which lucky guy JoJo Fletcher will choose, we can help you pick some great wines to serve as you gear up to watch this nail-biter with your friends.
Season 12 of The Bachelorette, will air on ABC at 8pm EST and Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher finally will select the man she wants to marry. She has spent the last 10 episodes getting to know a bunch of great guys. And now, she is down to her final two: Jordan Rodgers and Robby Hayes.
So in honor of the three of them, we picked wines to match their personalities. But regardless of who JoJo gives that rose to, you’re guests will love these wines and they’ll work great with any snacks you may serve.
So read on to find your perfect Bachelorette wines.
JoJo: She has that “girl-next-door” quality, so we had to choose a Chardonnay, since its America’s favorite varietal. Now there are so many great Chardonnays out there, much there are so many great guys, but like JoJo tonite, we had to make a choice.
Rombauer Chardonnay 2014, Carneros, CA, $35
It’s well-balanced, creamy, medium-bodied. You’ll get dried peaches and apples.
Jordan: He has said he wants a girl who’s spontaneous and that if he could have any job in the world, he would want to be a food critic, so he “could eat at all the best places all the time.”
And we secretly think that Jordan’s shot at getting that rose has got better and better as the show went on. So with all that, we picked a super-food friendly wine from Oregon, because the wines from Oregon also keep getting better and better.
Erath Pinot Noir 2014, Dundee, OR, $22
Cherries and pomegranate, creamy and nice long finish.
Robby: He claims he’s a hopeless romantic, a partier and his favorite flower is the Honeysuckle (which is actually more of a shrub, but we won’t be picky). So we went with a more romantic, floral wine that could work any party all night long.
Villa Ponciago Fleurie La Reserve 2012, Beaujolais, France, $25
You’ll get red berries and and tons of floral scents on the nose. Its has nice tang to it and a great finish.
So try these wines as you watch the season finale. And let us know which wine deserves the rose and — of course — if you think JoJo picked the right guy.
