How to Celebrate National Wine and Cheese Day July 25th!
Where to find great new wines!
Most people just grab a bottle of wine when they're doing their weekly grocery shopping, or pick up a bottle of wine at the drug store on the way home from work on a weekend.
Don't you want to try something new? Something different? Perhaps a well-reviewed wine club such as Naked Wines? I love discovering new wines and these brands are a great way to do just that - without the expensive price tag of visiting a winery...however beautiful they may be!
Lifevine ZERO Sugar Wines for the Low Carb and KETO Crowd
Are you following a low carb or KEOT diet and are a Wine lover? Try Lifevine Wine, for those who like to limit their sugar intake! Their wines contain ZERO SUGAR.
The FDA does not require wines to disclose nutritional information, but Lifevine has chosen to put it all right there on the label, even the calorie counts. How refreshing is that?
Award-winning winemaker Ed Killian makes sure that each bottle bursts with amazing flavor complexity. Varietals include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and more. Lifevine is lab tested for purity, certified pesticide free and committed to label transparency. And it tastes AMAZING!

Love Cork Screw Wines
The fun labels say it all. But don’t be mistaken, Love Cork Screw is serious about producing quality signature wine varietals that are delivered right to your doorstep with a new wine club subscription.
Swirl that glass of wine and you’ll enjoy aromas from carefully selected grapes filled with complexity, balance, and intense flavor. Don’t worry, no wine snobs here. Just fun-loving wine connoisseurs who are proud of their label and its diverse offerings.
I tried the Pinot Grigio and really loved how smooth and flavorful it was! I love a nice crisp pinot grigio, and it did not disappoint!
This is the wine to get to know this summer. Bring GOOD TIMES GOOD FRIENDS (Pinot Grigio) to a game night with friends, or WE’RE MOVIN ON UP (Cabernet Sauvignon) to a dinner party, or IN TOO DEEP (Vino Blanco) to a paint and sip event.
It will quickly become your go-to favorite!
Is it wine o’clock yet? Stella Rosa is America’s favorite semi-sweet, semi-sparkling Italian wine and is made with real, all-natural fruit flavors, are naturally gluten-free and vegan, low-calorie, and low-alcohol, making them the perfect wine for this summer!
Newly released single-serving, ready-to-drink cans, are available in 6 of the newest flavors including Blueberry, Watermelon, and Pineapple and are just perfect for sipping poolside, or throwing into your cooler for a long day on the beach or on the boat!
Each can is 5% ABV, so it it like having a beer - but much tastier!
I enjoyed these after coming home from work last week, it was the perfect way to wind down and treat myself as I was completing training for my new job - without accidentally over doing it with wine and waking up with a headache the next morning! HA!
I tried the Blueberry, Mango, Watermelon and Pineapple and the Pineapple is mu favorite so far! Where I live in Miami, these are available at Costco and BJ's Wholesale clubs - thankfully, I have a BJ's membership!

Avoid the Wine Hangover With Activated Charcoal!
Many moons ago, a friend told me that she would take CharcoCaps with a glass of water before going to bed when she had a few drinks. She said she never got hangovers and always felt great when she woke up the next morning, no matter if she was drinking wine, beer or liquor. Of course I had to check this out for myself, and I was surprised to find that IT ACTUALLY WORKS!
I have taken activated charcoal after having a few drinks for years and it never fails to save the day! I've even given them to friends who were really, really drunk at events and parties to help them sober up and it always works like a charm.
You can buy activated charcoal capsules at drugstores and grocery stores nationwide, they are in the anti-gas and bloating section, as that is their intended use. The absorption of the alcohol toxins is just a huge bonus! You can normally find them on Amazon for much cheaper.
Dog Point’s Sauvignon Blanc has become the icon in its category, a stainless steel Sauvignon Blanc that pulsates with energy, expressiveness and complexity that push the boundaries of what you may expect from Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is the ultimate vision of vibrant and perfumed New Zealand white wine.
A pure, citrus-driven Sauvignon with subtle tones of pear and white peach, the palate bursts with fresh grapefruit and Meyer lemons for juicy flavor and refreshing acidity. The wine is ideal alongside a dozen oysters or other seafood favorites.
And in case you can’t have just one, this wine can be comfortably cellared for five years or more. Priced at about $25, you can find out more here!
Don't forget the snacks when you're enjoying your wine!
