After some thinking, I’ve decided to associate my new found love for wine with the growth and development of the person I am becoming. Wine was not always my favorite, in fact before babies, I didn’t even like it. But fast forward two kids later, and a more optimistic outlook on life, I think it’s safe to say it grew on me a little, actually a lot!
I think I threw my friends and followers off a little bit because suddenly I’m posting about wine so much. I never found so much value and good times in premium wines. There’s something so nice about drinking something of better quality. I mean you want great quality of anything right? Great food is always best when the quality is higher, and same thing with wine, you get the concept right?
I used to purchase the $9.99 bottle from Safeway or Wal-mart of the Apothic Red which I didn’t really care what it tasted like, I just liked the price. And also because I had no idea what the good stuff tasted like. After a while of drinking the same stuff over and over, I wanted to venture out a little bit, and then found I became genuinely interested in all the in’s and out’s of wine. How it’s made, where it comes from, the weather of the place the vines grow in, how old the vines are, what barrels the grapes are stored in, which wine pairs best with what food and so on. There is just so much to learn and it’s all so fascinating to me!
And trust me, I am no expert about wine, but what I can tell you, is that I am learning more and plan on continuing to expand my knowledge on this subject. I’ve started reading and studying about different kinds of wines, white specifically. And just recently, I became a member and Rep of an online wine club, and I’m not exactly sure why, but before this club, I was so adamant about only drinking red. Not sure how I developed this love for red wines so much. Maybe because a red blend was the first glass I’ve ever tried or that it was because too much of any sweet wine gave me a tummy ache.. Either way, the point I’m trying to make here is my liking for white wine is now higher on the list after discovering this wine club. My choice on picking red or white to drink is becoming a harder decision.
After finding this online club, my palate has been taken to a whole different level (much higher level), and I’ve started tasting new wines from all around the world. I have not found a tasty white wine until now, and I’m not sure if the Frenchman, Aussies, or Spaniards have better climate, vineyards, or wine-making skills in general, but let me tell you… the wines I’ve tasted from other countries are so good! One more time, THEY ARE SO GOOD!
And the cool thing about all of this is, it is now my pleasure to be able take you all on this wine adventure with me.
Throughout my blog you will see more posts of my favorite wines, the descriptions of smell and taste, as well as a little background of it. *Disclosure I will only post the ones I like. If I happened to not like a wine, which hasn’t happened yet, the wine club will send me a new bottle of a different kind in replacement, and the best part is, I don’t have to send the other wine back!! So no bad reviews here.
With my reviews, if you see a wine that you can’t take your eye off of because it just seems so mouthwatering and tasty, let me know, and I can give you more information on the wine club.
If you’re becoming an enthusiast like me, or are already one, there is an opportunity to make a little extra income with wine on the side. As a brand partner, I look at this as doing a little something for fun that doesn’t interfere with what I have going on in life already. So if that is something you are open to as well, please let me know. A missed opportunity is only a regret later on.
Lastly, THANK YOU for reading! Let’s get connected, reach out to me via email, I love good conversation and would love to chat even more with you over a glass of wine. Don’t forget to follow this blog to get updated on further blog posts and my other social media platforms.
P.S sharing is caring.
