Spring is such a wonderful time of year, but this spring demands that we spend our time at home, as a result of COVID-19. Instead of heading to farmers’ markets, backyard barbecues, or family gatherings, we are rethinking how to enjoy the warmer weather. The beauty of wine is that it can be enjoyed in any season, even when circumstances are not ideal. Since social distancing measures are in place, it is time to rethink how you enjoy a glass of wine. Yes, we are all stuck at home; yes, we can still celebrate!
Romantic Date Night
A romantic dinner goes hand in hand with the perfect glass of wine. If you want to create a romantic atmosphere at home, it is important to choose the right wine to pair with dinner. When most people think of a romantic meal, red wine comes to mind first. Red wine is often associated with health benefits and can be paired with a variety of foods. Red wine is even known to release oxytocin, also known as the “love hormone.” If you want to set the perfect mood, choose a merlot, cabernet sauvignon, or pinot noir. With the proper planning, even your backyard can take on the feel of a fancy restaurant.
Birthdays, Engagements, and Promotions — Oh My!
Life still goes on in the midst of a pandemic. Especially now, it is important to celebrate the milestones of life. We need to stay connected during this time. Even if you can’t gather with your friends and family face to face, there is no need to postpone the celebration! Apps like Zoom and FaceTime® are great ways to stay connected and can bring everyone closer together. Sangrias are perfect for those mid-afternoon gatherings in the sunshine. Sparkling wines are a great option for an online brunch mimosa. If you want to plan a more formal virtual celebration, you can’t go wrong with our Rainy Day Rosé. For an added touch and to make your guests feel included, be sure to ship them a bottle to share with you.
It is so important to stay connected during this difficult time. Celebrating happy times can help all of us get through this together. Visit our online shop, send a bottle to your friends, and celebrate the happy times of life. When we are able to gather together again, it will be even sweeter.
