Sipping wine with less calories

23 Jan

Great news for wine lovers! Now you can enjoy a glass of delicious chardonnay without having to count calories OR drink something with less taste. Wines from Skinny Vine do have lower alcohol contents, though, but if you’re looking to save your liver just a little bit and getting up the next day without a nasty hangover, try a bottle from this brand. Let me know what you think!



Wine Wednesday: A smooth Merlot

8 Nov

Greetings, vixens! Tonight I am toasting a glass of fine Merlot in the aftermath of President Obama’s reelection. And what a fine wine (and a fine president, too) it is. Did you know that merlot is the most widely planted red grape in France’s Bordeaux region? It is eclipsed in stature by cabernet sauvignon, the grape with which it is routinely blended. The merlot is softer and has smoother tannins.

This evening I’m sipping a fine 2008 edition of Washington’s Tamarack Cellars Merlot, available at for 25 bucks. It’s smooth and rich, and oh-so velvety.

A little bit of Barefoot in my glass

18 Oct

Hello my lovely ladies! And happy hump day, aka Wine Wednesday!

For today’s fine I though I’d feature a longtime favorite, Mr. Barefoot. Yes, it’s a cheap wine, but the brand’s pinot grigio is up there with the best of them. It’s light and crisp with fruity notes, and can be served as an aperitif or with meals such as chicken or seafood. Or just share a bottle with a friend for one of those intimate convoes. I seriously love this wine, so give it a try.

What is YOUR favorite wine?

Hi, I can be your new best friend!
