We’ve been going through some wine around here lately.
Like, a lot.
I am a huge sparkling Moscato fan – it’s sweet. It’s bubbly. It takes the edge off when a certain 5 year old has been trying my nerves for hours on end.
When do the kids go back to school?
I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time throwing wine bottles away. Don’t ask me why. They just seem to be destined for something classier than the land fill. Sure, recycling would make them into a new bottle, somewhere, someday.
I prefer instant gratification.
I was recently challenged by The Wine Bar to come up with something to do with all these empty wine bottles collecting dust on my counter. A quick internet search gave me plenty of ideas! Just look at these projects!
Beautiful, right? And so simple. Because I didn’t want to get into cutting the wine bottles, I limited myself a bit, but no big deal – I had other plans!
Here’s what I came up with!
Not too shabby, right? Stay tuned – in the next couple of days I will show you a little tutorial on how I did it. Not hard at all!
In the mean time, I wanted to share this little Wine Cheat Sheet with you. No one asked me to, but once I saw it, I couldn’t NOT share it. I personally am NOT a wine know-it-all. In fact, I am a Wine Know Not Much At All. I just know what I like.
Like Moscato d’Asti.
Similarly, I found a Butterfly Kiss Moscato that is a little less bubbly, and it has a great fruity flavor. I kind of feel grown up drinking it. Seriously folks, it doesn’t take much.
Oooh, and I also got my hands on a sparkling Prosecco I am loving. Stellina di Notte. Great pricing (under $15!) and the bottle is good looking. Don’t pretend like that doesn’t count – you know it does.
Maybe you can print off this little cheat sheet and sneak it into your wallet or purse, then when you are out at a restaurant ordering, you can look like a wine-know-something-or-another.
Don’t be snobby. You ARE resorting to a cheat sheet, after all.
I don’t judge.
If you do love wine, and you want to know more, I recommend checking out and Liking The Wine Bar on Facebook. Plenty of great ideas, suggestions, and things to make you look all Wine-Smarty.
I think I need another glass.
