One of my favorite things about this whole wine deal I have going on is sharing the wines I love with my friends. I love seeing them perk up after a sip of something delicious. My friend Claire had her second annual Gal-entine’s Day brunch recently to celebrate all the ladies in her life. She put out quite the spread of savory tarts and quiches, a DIY garland station of beautiful flowers, and bubbly wine with fresh juice. Guests brought yummy desserts and other goodies. I brought wine, as per usual. My go-to wine for a daytime girly affair is pink pet nat. A new favorite is Stephane Serol‘s ‘Turbulent’, a super delightful gamay bubbly.
It pretty much goes with anything. Savory quiche, sweet scones, buttery biscuits, sunshine…
We had quite the afternoon. Making garlands, drinking, eating, drinking, and playing a rousing game of Cards Against Humanity. Check out Rue Magazine for all the pics and Claire’s tips! You’ll also get a peek at Bottle Stock‘s new greeting cards.
Hope your week is filled with friends, love, and belly laughs. And wine. Duh.
