4. Organic Vinos Guerra Rosé
Summer is the perfect time for rosé, and these fruity, pink, organic wines are ideal for a Mother's Day gift to a wine-loving mom. Vinos Guerra rosé hails from the Spanish Bierzo region and is made with 100 percent Mencia grapes. As opposed to many American rosés, this one is light and relatively dry, making it perfect for pairing with a Mother's Day dinner of grilled shellfish or herbed goat cheese salad.
These aerating wine glasses help make the most of swirling your wine before you drink -- their design allows you to mix oxygen with your wine easily and quickly. The wine glasses are made of shatter-proof plastic, so they're easy to care for and you don't run the risk of breaking them.
