This post and $300 Amazon gift card giveaway sponsored by Weekly Tasting
A couple of years ago, I offered to host a girls’ night for some friends at my house. Everyone was looking forward to leaving their kids at home and hanging out! Since I don’t have little kids any more (we’ve moved on to puppies, ha) I was happy to host the event at my house so everyone could enjoy their evening. As we planned this fun night, I started making the shopping list. They dreamed of chocolate fountains. A coffee bar. Wine tasting. Chick flicks. Perfect girls’ night, yes? Yes, well, almost.
Here’s the thing that started stressing me out. It wasn’t the impending housecleaning, prepping the coffee bar or renting the chocolate fountain. The thing that I was most unfamiliar with was the wine! Yes, we have a wine rack in our kitchen (I just buy pretty bottles even though I have no idea what type of wine it is!).
I usually only order wine on special occasions or when we are out to dinner or entertaining friends. I’ve been to wineries, but mostly because I just love the ambience of the countrywide. I never feel confident of what wine I like, let alone what wine to give, buy, order or serve. I don’t like spending money on something I may not enjoy and definitely don’t want to embarrass myself by ordering or offering the wrong wine!
When I heard about a new service called Weekly Tasting, I thought it wasn’t for me. But then something dawned on me. Why not learn about wine in the comforts of my home? I could save myself some future embarrassment and maybe learn a few things! Plus, I thought it just sounded fun.
So here’s how Weekly Tasting works:
Sommeliers select 4 wines with a common theme. You receive an email with the weekly theme and if sounds interesting to you, you can order that box sent to your home for $69.99 plus free shipping. Weekly Tasting sends a box which includes four bottles of wine, tasting cards, recipe pairings and a 10-minute tasting video hosted by a Sommelier.
Both of Weekly Tasting’s Sommelier’s are well-known in the wine industry. Laura Maniec is one of only 32 female Master Sommeliers in the world. Elizabeth Schneider is a Sommelier who has spent over 10 years in the wine industry. She also hosts the Wine for Normal People podcast.
By watching the video and tasting the wines, you’ll learn more about what to look for, the regions, varietals, and characteristics of each of the wines, plus you’ll become more familiar with your own wine preferences. You’ll also get access to a label recognition app, a personal cellar where you can share your favorite bottles with your friends and compare notes, and so much more!
I can’t wait to use Weekly Tasting as a fun opportunity for a girls’ night, date night or book club activity!
