We have been so fortunate to have sooooo many fans of our products: Wine Wipes, Pearly Wipes and VinQuiz. Thank you! Some highlights of this year include Wine Wipes represented in Self Magazine’s Beauty Hangover cures on the Nate Berkus Show, Pearly Wipes in People Magazine’s Style Watch and our Vinquiz seems to be gaining popularity as well.
For those of you not familiar with the VinQuiz, it’s a fun quiz to match you (or a friend) with your own wine personality and a bottle of cult wine. It is delivered to you with a personality profile, tasting notes and pairing suggestions. All for just $20 + shipping and handling or pick it up yourself if you live close by!
Hopefully that’s inspired you to consider new ways of selecting your wine for 2012.
What are your New Year’s Wine Resolutions? How about being a little more adventurous? I like the simple advice of wine writer, David White “In 2012, resolve to explore the unfamiliar by trying unusual grapes from unusual regions. If you like red wines, you’re probably drinking lots of Cabernet Sauvignon. If you prefer whites, you’re probably drinking Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc.”
Although our local wines are amazing, why not try something like Gavi di Gavi, Broglia, La Meirana, Italy, 2009. Drink this all day. Richly textured, yet crisp in style. Think crisp Pinot Grigio with a hint of Chardonnay.
What about red?
Gamay, Villa Ponciago, France 2009. Not to be confused with Beaujolais Nouveau, Cru Beaujolais is similar to a Pinot Noir; complex, elegant and balanced. 2009 is considered the vintage of a lifetime for the region.
Monastrall, Juan Gil, Jumillo, Spain 2006
100% Monastrall (aka: Mourvedre) Secret culty go-to for true Spanish wine lovers. Warm and rich with layers of spicy plum and violets finishing with sweet tannins and a touch of chocolate.
Cheers to a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
P.S. We are excited to announce we will have a new product coming soon in 2012 (still top secret)! Remember to check back for details.
