A Little Wine. And…A Little More Wine.

Besides confessions, you know what else is good for the soul? Wine. Unfortunately, the more you drink the more you might have to confess. Ah, the circle of life. And why we practice moderation in all things.



“Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.”  Paulo CoelhoBrida

Paulo Coelho wrote one of my favorite books, The Alchemist, so I figure his characters know what they’re talking about.

“it’s a smile, it’s a kiss, it’s a sip of wine … it’s summertime!”  Kenny Chesney

A Kenny Chesney song makes an appearance in almost every one of my playlists.

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection, and it offers a greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing.” Ernest Hemingway

See what I mean? Wine is a sensory thing!

To that end I thought I’d share a couple of my new favorite whites with you. They are blends and I’m lovin’ the blends right now.

Apothic White is a blend that combines Chardonnay, Riesling and Moscato to create a luscious, vibrant wine. Intense flavors of peach, pineapple, honey and vanilla. (Their words, not mine.)

Bear Flag, Soft White Blend. Muscat of Alexandria, Symphony, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, French Columbard. Ooh-la-luscious. (Again, their words, not mine.)

So, pull up a chair and enjoy!

Happy Hump Day! Feel free to share your favorite wine of the moment. I’m always up for trying new wines.

  1. All our wines are homemade – and The Husband has become quite the winemaker. Yes, kits – but tweaked with grapeskins, raisins, etc. I can’t wait for next summer (we also age a long, long time) when the Sauvignon Blanc that he added grapefruit zest to will be ready!!!

    And blends are all the rage in the wine kit market, too. Right now, my favorite red is Australian Down Under – a combination of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre.

    • OMGosh, I love grapefruit! Until I started researching wine a tiny bit I didn’t know much more about it than how to tip up my glass and take a sip. I thought it was grapes. I bet your lovely wines go beautifully sitting outside or inside on the lovely east coast.

    • Give it a try, Jana! There’s also another white that’s a little drier than this one if that’s your preference. Apothic rocks! I love the red too. I hope you enjoy a glass, or two, this weekend!
