The last post felt very good to write. I have some more stories about my wine adventures in California coming soon. Today is Monday and since that means football, I want to mention my partnership with Naked Winery. I will be sipping some of their fun-named and delicious wines while watching NFL Monday Night Football every other week. It's like a bucket list dream come true. I get to paint my nails, drink wine, and watch football? Thank you, God, for this life.
Let's talk about wine.
I met the lovely folks at Naked Winery at the Wine Bloggers Conference. When I pitched them my idea of wine and Monday Night Football they were stoked and introduced me to their Outdoor Vino.
NFL Monday Night Football - September 12, 2016. Two games. Hallelujah!
- Steelers v. Redskins
- Rams v. 49ers
The Wine. This wine is made specifically for what it says - outdoors. The Wanderlust White is bright and floral. I get melon and a flower component when I breathe it in. I put my entire nose in the glass, but it easily works with a tailgating solo cup, if that is your kind of thing. The packaging is made for the outdoors. It is not glass, but a plastic bottle that and twist-off time so you don't have to worry about a corkscrew or glass shattering. If you want to be fancy, and really who doesn't, I love using the heavy plastic wine glasses you find at this time of year. This is a great wine for the last few weeks of summer parties.
Food Pairings. I'm a big fan of simple and clean salads in the summer for parties and this would work great with a watermelon feta or my favorite arugula and shaved parmesan.
The Price. $18.00.
