I wanted to share what else Craig and I did last weekend. I've already told you about our kids' sports, landscaping and baking. It was a very busy weekend. But we still managed to have a little fun. It's a balance. And since the weather was so nice, we decided to take out our patio furniture (well, most of it) and have a couple of neighbors over for a glass of wine. I was lucky enough to be selected by the women at Clever Girls Collective to participate in a wine review. The lovely people at Echelon Vineyards sent me three bottles to try -
They sent a Chardonnay, a Red Blend, and a Pinot Grigio. (they also sent a corkscrew - so I was ready!) It was nice to spend some time outside with friends for the first time of the year. And it was nice to relax after working all day!
I went right for the Red Blend. And since I'd never tried Echelon before, I was looking forward to tasting it. And it was delicious! Their website describes the Red Blend as 'smooth' and I definitely agree. It was my favorite of the bunch.
Craig started with the Pinot Grigio. He doesn't drink wine very much but he enjoyed giving it a try. And he really liked it. I also gave it a try. And although I don't usually drink white wine, I liked it too. The website describes this wine as 'crisp'. That's a great description.
We opened the Chardonnay for my neighbors. And they didn't want to share. But Craig and I finally had a chance to taste it. Yum. It was just as delicious as the first two bottles! It's described on the website as 'scrumptious'. I think my neighbors would agree.
So, I would definitely recommend Echelon Vineyards. I've already checked out their website for other wines I'd like to try - like the Pinot Noir and the Cabernet Sauvignon.
I really loved getting outside and spending time with friends! We had such a fun night! Isn't that what it's all about? A little work and a little relaxation? Finding balance.
Disclosure - I really want to thank Clever Girls Collective and Echelon Vineyards for sending their product to me. I was not compensated in any other way for my review. The opinions expressed are my own and honest.
