When Countess Viola Kingsley is stripped of her title, she must rebuild her life and reputation—but it's not easy when she's falling for bad boy, Marcel Lamarr. And you don't need class to drink this Siduri Pinot Noir. Harvested between the late Summer months (Aug. 24th and Sept. 23rd, to be exact) you'll find hints of pomegranate, clay, and black cherry. Like, Viola, just because you're not nobility, doesn't mean you can't enjoy an affordable but fancy wine each evening.

Buy The Magnolia Inn from Amazon, here.

The Magnolia Inn, the home Jolene Broussard has now inherited is a lot like this Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. Warm with an aroma of vanilla and honey, you can almost smell the toasted oak and butter rounds from here. And like The Magnolia Inn it'll resonate with you thanks to that delicious lingering finish. So open a cold bottle and snuggle up in your favorite chair, Jolene is about to fall in love with rugged carpenter Tucker Malone and you're about to have a favorite new wine.

Picture this: You just opened a new bottle of Freemark Abbey's Cabernet Sauvignon. The pop from the cork makes your heart flutter like Millie's when she's around her best friend, Reid. And maybe like Millie, you'll sip some red wine like the one we've paired with My Favorite Half-Night Stand. With nuances of dark chocolate, cinnamon, and a hint of tobacco, maybe you'll follow in Mille's footsteps and sign up for an online dating service. If you don't drink responsibly, you'll end up having a half-night stand with your BFF.
