The online venture of family-owned Cairo Wine & Liquor, DCWineGuy.com selects sippable wines based on flavor notes, history, and seasonality. To ring in the colder winter months, patrons can sample from four red and two white wines or use them to dye two-thirds of an American flag. The hand-selected lineup contains two selections from famous wine producer Jorge Ordonez & Co.—the Campos Reales tempranillo and the Bodegas Volver Tarima, which got an 88-point rating from Wine Advocate—alongside a selection from the top-notch Chateau Pesquie winery, including the Indaba chenin blanc, named “Best Buy” for three consecutive years by Wine Enthusiast. Tall flagons of Mars & Venus sauvignon blanc and Terra Andina cabernet sauvignon tag along nicely to BYOB dinners and events, forgoing the need to uncork that special magnum of vanilla extract. While picking up wines, patrons can quiz Cairo’s knowledgeable staffers, who verse themselves in all things potable.
