Wine, delivered monthly to her front door

Brooke Matthias, Winc's wine director, offers a few tips on selecting the perfect bottle for mom:

1. Rosé: When picking out a bottle of rosé, look for one that is lighter in color and lower in alcohol. A deeper color tends to mean that a rosé is richer in body and has more sweetness.
2. White: If mom is a white wine fan, but you want to impress her with something more unexpected than Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, try a bottle of Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc is a bright and light style of wine.
3. Red: If you're celebrating Mother's Day with a brunch, you'll want a red wine that isn't as heavy as a full-bodied Cabernet. Field Theory Touriga Nacional is a perfect light-bodied red with fruit forward flavors.
4. Chardonnay:Salient Chardonnay has a touch of California butteriness and is perfect for the mom who loves hosting special occasions and dinner parties.
