What wines are they pouring at the White House this holiday season? I asked First Lady Michelle Obama’s press secretary, Katie McCormick Lelyveld. Ms. McCormick Lelyveld demurred to describe what the Obamas would be drinking during private dinners (more Kendall Jackson Vintners Reserve Chardonnay, a reputed Presidential favorite?) but she did offer a few details as to what would be publicly poured:

“All the wines are domestically and available in quantity locally,” the press secretary stated, though her statement sounded more like a clue, “All wines selected are also price-conscious.”

As to specifics, there were two wineries she could name: Landmark Vineyards and Pride Mountain winery, chosen because “both offer great stories of women who developed a passion for the industry.”
