New Year’s Resolutions for Wine Lovers
Let’s be honest with ourselves. While we may have the best intentions when making New Year’s resolutions, it can be really hard to stick to them for a whole year. So why not make resolutions that are actually easy—and, dare we say, fun—to keep?
At this point, you might be asking, “But what resolutions are any fun to keep?” Two words: wine resolutions. If you’re a wine lover—or aspire to be one—keep reading to learn about five wine New Year’s resolutions you can make in 2022.
1. Try New Wines
Maybe you’re not a huge wine fan, or maybe you just want to venture out of your comfort zone and try something new. Whatever your motivation is, making a New Year’s goal for wine is a great idea. From reds and whites to brands from around the world, you have so many options to choose from.
But don’t let that overwhelm you! To help you out, we’ve put together a list of tasty options from our Cellar Collection:
- Reds: Shroud Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, Le Petit Maynne Pinot Noir
- Whites: Curious White, Vegan, Nave Sur Verdejo
- Rosés: Amore Organic Rosé, Vina Palaciega Cava Brut Rosé
- Sparklings: Alessandro Gallici Prosecco, 1913 Sparkling Natural Branco Brut
2. Drink More Organic & Vegan Wines
If you want to cut down on calories this year but aren’t willing to give up wine completely—no shame, we get it—just choose lower-calorie options. Many wines have a high sugar content, which is where most of the calories come from. So if you want to drink fewer calories, select wines that have relatively low sugar content.
Organic and vegan wines are a great option for this! They’re healthier for you, better for the environment, and you won’t get those pesky sugar-induced headaches after having a few glasses. And don’t worry about sacrificing taste when you purchase these lower-sugar wines. They’ve still got plenty of flavor to make your taste buds happy.

3. Visit Some Vineyards
Nothing beats drinking a glass of wine while wandering past the very vines that the grapes were hand-picked from. Something about that experience just makes the wine taste better than if you bought it at the grocery store. Visiting a vineyard is also a great excuse to get together with loved ones for a birthday getaway or a girls’ trip.
4. Host a Wine Event
Have you always dreamed of hosting a wine pairing? There’s no better time than the present. You can go big and send out formal invitations to everyone you know or keep it small with a group of your closest friends. All you need are several different wines and some cheese, crackers, and chocolate. What more could you ever want? If you’re on a budget, ask your guests to bring their favorite wine and food item to pair it with. That way, everyone will feel involved, too.
5. Make It an Adventure
If anything, drinking wine can just be your excuse to do more fun things this year. Whether it’s planning a wine night with friends, visiting your local winery for a tasting, or planning a picnic with your significant other, making an event out of drinking wine is the best way to do it. If you’re doing something fun while drinking wine, the wine will automatically taste better. Don’t ask us why; that’s just how it works. Fun New Year’s resolutions are also way easier to stick to.
