My Wine Tour Courtesy of Blossom Hill Vie 5.5%

You would think having 6 bottles of wine would quickly translate into a good night in for a few of your nearest and dearest friends.  But getting said friends together at an agreeable date seems much harder than I first thought!  You see once you have children you need a babysitter and seeing as most of my friends have kids, it requires the scheduling powers of a super personal assistant that I am sadly lacking!

I gave up my plans for a Cougar Town inspired evening with us all drinking from Big Carl style glasses and decided to do a wine tour.  I have wine and whilst hubbie is at home with our children I can travel by foot.  So I thought I would distribute a little wine joy around the neighbourhood!  Peddling the benefits of Blossom Hill Vie 5.5% to one and all.

Free wine never fails to raise some smiles!

Forget a milk bottle, I leave wine!

I have just settled at home to drink it myself and must say I am very impressed.  I like drinking wine but only usually drowned with lemonade, but this wine I can drink just as it is.  It is quite fruity and very pleasant to drink.  I thought I would be a long live the spritzer kind of girl; well I think I am now a Blossom Hill Vie lady!

Other feedback from my appreciative testers:

“It is very refreshing.  It does not leave a strong taste in your mouth”

“After one glass I felt myself wanting another…”

“It’s fruity and I would definitely drink it again”

“It was not too sweet or too dry, a lovely drink to drink by itself or with food”

Being a reduced alcoholic option means you can be a sophisticated wine drinker and not suffer the same hangover the next day!  Well that’s my logic so I shall enjoy another glass and leave you to check out the Blossom Hill website at your leisure…

Having developed a taste for wine I think I would quite like to try one of these wine tasting tours by d'Vine, a chance to sample good wine and appetizing food to compliment it would be a lovely experience.  I think I should add it to my bucket list of things to do before I hit forty!  Given I am in my late thirties I better get cracking.  It would be a wonderful opportunity to visit some wineries and educate myself on wine!  Then when I next hand out free wine for my friends I will feel more informed about the wine.

  1. Cheers! Sounds good, maybe I can justify the odd glass over the next 9 months!
