Wine in a Can For Football Tailgaiting?

*** I received this wine as a sample. ***

Hi everyone…and Happy #WineWednesday! Today, I’m tasting four canned wines from Right Now—The Alpine Steam White, the Dry Rosé, the Red Blend Number 8, and the Shimmer Slightly Sweet Rosé Bubbly. You can watch to find out all the details, but here is a hint…I was surprised by the quality of all 4, loved the rosé, thought the bubbly tasted like soda, and would bring all 4 to a tailgate!

Questions of the Day:

  1. Have you had any new canned wines that you’ve enjoyed? Do you drink them?
  2. Are you a football fan? Do you drink wine when you’re watching or do you go for beer or something else?
  3. Are there wine gadgets that you’re interested in or that you recommend that you think I should take a look at?

A Thanksgiving Rosé: Mark Ryan Winery’s BTR “The Vincent”

Hi wine friends…and Happy #WineWednesday.  Tonight, I’m sharing one of my favorite rosés, the Mark Ryan Winery’s 2017 Board Track Racer “The Vincent” Rosé.  It’s a $15 wine that is worth every penny, it’s just really hard to find.  So, if you’re interested in it, I suggest buying directly from the website early in the year because they sell out fast. Cheers!

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite rosé?

Jon Bon Jovi + Rosé Wine = Diving Into Hampton Water

Hi everyone, and Happy #WineWednesday! Today, I’m going to taste Diving Into Hampton Water by Hampton Water Wine Co. , which is a collaboration between Jon Bon Jovi, Jesse Bongiovi, and French winemaker Gérard Bertrand. The wine is a French rosé, and it’s a blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 15% Mouvédre, and 10% Syrah.  The wine is $25.

Question of the Day: Have you had a chance to try this wine?  Have you tried any other “celebrity” wines that you enjoyed?

Wine Flash Sale: Cuvée Valérose

Happy #WineWednesday! Spring has finally arrived in DC, so I didn’t want to miss sharing my latest Wines ‘Til Sold Out purchase – a yummy rosé that is perfect for the warm weather. Cheers!

The wine mentioned in the video was the 2017 Cuvée Valérose — $11.  I would give it a 3.5 out of 5 corks.  It’s a great value and is an easy-to-drink wine, but not very complex.

Question of the Day #1: Do you drink rosé all year long or is it mostly a spring and summer wine for you?

Question of the Day #2: Do you buy wine online?  If so, what sites do you use?
