The holiday season is all about celebrating traditions and spreading cheer! Kwenchers is an essential trip for many, with everything you will need to have the most spirited seasonal celebration this year!
Located in Owasso at 12914 E. 86th St. N, the shop is one of the largest liquor stores in the state, with an amazing selection of everything anyone would need for their party! From eggnog to Gluehwein, Christmas beers and holiday ciders, and an incredible selection of wines, their experts can assist you in finding the right mix for the occasion, or even a gift or two.
Some of the most popular items found in the shop this time each year are gift sets, usually including free glassware. Gift wrapping is also available. Specialty glassware from local breweries, as well as 6-packs of assorted beers, are a great gift idea for the ale enthusiast. Wine is where it’s at for many people, and they have many brands and types to choose from. There are few gifts as easy and classy as a bottle of wine for Christmas.
When planning wine for holiday meals, traditional wine and food pairings can often be confusing, but their experts can provide practical advice on which bottles will work best for your menu. Manager Levi Woolski recommends loosely following the rules when it comes to wine pairings. “It’s 2019, if you want Moscato with your turkey, have Moscato,” he said. “People should drink what they want to drink.”
From eggnog to Gluehwein, Christmas beers and holiday ciders, and an incredible selection of wines, their experts can assist you in finding the right mix for the occasion, or even a gift or two.
