So, I started DateYourselfGirl as a means to discover new things and to introduce and possibly reintroduce my supporters to new things. I'm a creature of habit so challenging myself to do something different is a must otherwise I will stay in the same routine forever. Well, I have been a social drinker for a few years now but to be quite honest I never really paid attention to brands and/or flavors. It was always the usual Barefoot, Beringer, Cupcake, Middle Sister, Coppola...Merlot, Riesling, & Chardonnay, you know the popular brands and flavors. And I know I'm not the only person who goes to a restaurant and gets overwhelmed by the wine list. All those brands you can't pronounce and flavors you aren't sure of. It's like taking a test in a foreign language, so why even bother?
But recently I decided to try the wine delivery club, WINC. I was scrolling through Instagram and WINC popped up in my feed. I clicked on it and was pleasantly surprised. Trust me, I was skeptical because I don't typically trust things that other people I know haven't tried before but once I went to the website I was sold. The fact that they recommend 4 different wines (2 Reds/2 Whites) a month and you can add or remove a wine, depending on your taste, really drew me in. They also pair wines with recipes, which was another appealing factor since I've been cooking a lot more. But the real selling factor that I love most, is that I can shop from anywhere at any time and not have to deal with aisles and aisles of wine bottles that I'm not familiar with or cannot pronounce. You can take your time in learning about where the wines come from, how they are made, and what foods go well with them. Isn't that cool or what?
So far, I have been pleased with the brands of wines and am looking forward to each month getting tastier. So if you are a wine drinker, I strongly suggest giving WINC a try and if you are a wine connoisseur I recommend giving your taste buds something different. After all, that's what life's all about right? Making discoveries, trying new things, and getting out of your comfort zone. So discover WINC and as always...DateYourselfGirl!
