Recently, between my family and my coworkers I’ve spent a good deal of time at wineries. You might have caught a recent post about a day spent winery hopping with my aunts. Trips like that aren’t too far from the norm anymore, which I suppose might be part of my transition from college bars to the grown-up enjoyment of alcohol. It sounds terrible, and I promise I’m not an alcoholic, but wine shows up at a lot of my leisure activities.
Family gatherings with my cousins and my aunts have started to include at least one trip to a winery. Between family members who are discovering their love of wine and those of us who are excited to share that passion, we drink a lot of wine when we are together. This past Fourth of July weekend, we spent some time at my grandparents’ house in Cooks Forest. The local winery there, Deer Creek Wine, has a delicious berry sangria wine, so, of course, we used it and a concoction of other things to make an actual batch of sangria.
Wine isn’t only for family gatherings; my coworkers also enjoy a good bottle, and Jen has been trying to drag me away from ultra sweet fruity wines into dryer styles like Tempranillo, Malbecs, and Chianti. Luckily, we work 8 minutes from an amazing local winery called J&D Cellars that offers something that suits all of our tastes. We can occasionally be found there for planning meetings, birthday picnics, or a random Friday celebrating whatever we want. J&D Cellars recently celebrated the grand opening of a new, absolutely beautiful tasting room, so, of course, we were there again this past weekend.
When I look at the times I drink wine; I find a pretty common theme that involves friends and family. What else goes great with a bottle of wine? Girls night! We’ve started using our girls’ nights as an excuse to test cocktail recipes for our site, but they also include wine pretty regularly too. What is the perfect accessory to a girls’ night? Wine! And what accessory is your wine missing? Custom, printable labels!
It has become trendy to have custom wine bottle labels printed for special events like weddings, bachelorette parties and birthdays. Personally, we think any occasion with a bottle of wine should be special, so I came up with these snarky wine bottle labels perfect for everyday use. Snag this free download and turn your next bottle of wine into whichever sassy quote fits you.
We love this idea and will be continuing to come out with new quotes and designs for every wine-worthy occasion. Need a custom design? Send us a message and we can work something out! Have a suggestion for a funny quote? Send it on over and it just might make it into our next batch.
