Drink Up!

For the Love of Wine: BevMo's 5 cent sale extended

Just a quick PSA: BevMo! has extended thier .5 cent wine sale until Monday July 16th. 

Why is that a PSA? Because it's summer, school's out and we all need a little more vino in our lives. The 5 cent sale is the best time to stock up because if you buy a case of wines on sale - you can get the second case for just 60 cents. I still can't wrap my head around that. 

BevMo! has more than 250 wonderful wines to offer – buy the first one at the regular, undiscounted price and get the second for just a nickel. From Crucillon Garnacha to Tower Brook Chardonnay to Montevina Pinot Grigio, BevMo! has a vast selection for all tastes and budgets.

Check out the wine exerts’ top picks:

Have you shopped the 5 cent sale yet? What was your favorite deal? Please share before I head there this weekend!

Wine Wednesday - I'm getting #UnCorked With California Wine Club


HILARIOUS cocktail napkin and my new motto

I love coming home to packages at my front door. There is no better treat than unpacking something...tearing through the cardboard box, rummaging through the packing materials....especially if what's inside is WINE. 

This Friday, California Wine Club is taking me and four other fabulous lady bloggers on a wine tasting trip up to Santa Barbara County to seriously wine and dine us...and give us a taste of the flavors that come regularly with their wine club. Central California wine country is one of my favorite places in the world. The beauty of the hills and vineyards and the quaintness of the little towns gives Napa a run for it's money. Just the thought of spending the day with some of my favorite ladies, sipping wine while learning more about the Santa Ynez region puts me in my happy place...

While you may not be able to be there physically with us, please follow along with us virtually for a day long #UnCorked virtual party to see what we're up to, the hilarious things we are saying - oh yea, and the chance to win some amazing prizes from California Wine Club.
