Easy to choose wine

Even though I'm about 1,5 hours from Napa Valley and even a little further from Sonoma - the major wine areas in California, there actually are wineries not too far from where I live too. I like that - it gives a little "Falcon Crest"-feeling to everyday life, haha.

Anyway, I just browsed through a magazine and I read about this new "easy to choose" wine - and the bottles looked kind of funny - so I just had to check them out.

This (Californian) company, Wine that Loves, from the philosophy that people should easier find wine that goes together with specific types of food. So they have a line of wines, all designed to pair with different kind of foods, with labels that easily guide you to which wine to choose.

Kind of a fun idea!

They have a "pizza wine" (of course!) - I really like the design of this bottle. And now I'm really curious to try it next time we happen to order pizza - even though pizza nights are usually nights when no one has the energy to cook and we just want to have dinner overwith... not really the kind of nights when you might want to slurp down a glass of wine with your food.

Oh, well, I just have to plan a "pizza and wine dinner" and invite some friends over. I might even bring out the plates and not serve the slices out of the box.

Aw, California!!! Hm, I have heard that they actually make wine in my part of the world as well, but I am not sure I am that interested in trying..

You are on my blogroll again, I don't know when that happened, but I just "missed you" today and realized that you had "fallen off"!!

You should check out the wine in the Sierra Foothills. It's nearby and very good too!

Mia - ;-) You should! I haven't got into the blogroll thing yet - I just haven't had the time. I need to redo some other stuff too -one of these days...

Ally - so I've heard! We haven't been up there - just drove south on 49 a few years ago (before kids). Need to do more exploring.

James White - sorry - no solicitation - I just hate that. Feel free to comment - but keep your unrelated links to your own blog profile - it had no relevance what so ever to the post I made. Have removed your comment.
