wine night in
make a chicken dinner and pour a glass of outstanding chardonnay, sit at your dining room table (PHONES OFF) and converse. Share secrets. Talk about the future. Discuss fears, failures, successes, gratitude. Talk about the weather. Don’t avoid religion or politics. Need a discussion topic? Pull out a table topic, a super fun way to get a conversation started – even with someone you’ve known for a decade.
give it a swirl
This wine is delightful, y’all – light, crisp, and easy to drink. Tastes like pineapples (how preppy!), melon, and peach. Pour a glass in the brazilliance of the main dining room at the Greenbrier… or seated at your dining room table. Serve with light dishes like sea bass, caesar salad, lemony chicken, or grilled shrimp tacos.
