Winey Wednesday #8

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Today I am so excited to share a glass of wine with my friend Chrissy. Chrissy is going to share with us a great summer wine to enjoy as we start to feel that summer weather begin to roll in. Sit back and enjoy as Chrissy tells us how to cool down this summer...

Hi,  My name is Chrissy and I blog over on my blog Hoot Designs and on my other blog Hoot Photography.  I'm excited to guest post here on Lauren's blog, and since she has Wine Wednesday's I thought I would offer to share a fun wine I was introduced to last summer!   

Thank you Lauren for letting me share a guest post.

It's called NEW AGE

 It really more of a summer wine and believe it or not you serve it over ice with a lemon or lime squeezed in it!!  Whoa, really you do, and it's great - super refreshing. It is a slightly sweet, semi-sparkling wine that has aromas of fresh flowers and fruit.
