HAPPY 2017!!!

What better way the perfect kick off the new year than with a sparkly wine review?!

I enjoyed this Prosecco with my husband and in-laws for New Years Eve this past weekend prior to our fun night out. It was a hit! Self-admittedly, I don’t know much about sparkling wines (and still have a lot to learn about all wines) but I found this to be a fancier version of what I’d typically pick for a celebratory night. It was not too sweet and not too dry so I think it would be enjoyed by all wine-drinkers alike.

On a related note, thank you to those who have visited and loved on my blog since starting this journey early last year. I appreciate the connections I have made, intend to get on a more regular posting schedule, and hope to grow my blog this year!!!

Thanks for stopping by and until next wine.

Italian Toscana

This wine is very similar to a Chianti. They are both grown and produced in Tuscany and contain the classic sangiovese grape. The main difference between this Toscana and a Chianti is that this is a bit riper and fruitier. Nonetheless it’s a great table wine that doesn’t need to be overthought, just enjoyed with family. Visit their website here to see more about Petrolo and get lost in the gorgeous photos of Italian landscapes, over a glass of wine of course, XOXO.

White Italian Blend

Talk about a perfect wine for the spring season, this baby is it!!! It’s a half pinot grigio, half sauvignon blanc blend… “due uve” literally means two grapes so that is very fitting. Medium body with hints of citrus fruit and a balanced acidity on the finish. Not too sweet and not too dry. Loved it, XOXO.
