Shocker: I love wine. Let’s be honest: I mean, enjoying a beautiful, pricy glass of a Bordeaux 2007 vintage while I’m staring off into the sunset is my favorite hobby ever…

Uhhh…reality check! How often does that scenario happen? BA!

*sigh*

Life is cray, so when it comes to wine I’m not too much of a snob. For instance, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio gets the job done; it’s light, crisp, & delish.

Next time you’re sippin’, try this: add a bunch of ice/reusable ice cubes to your white wine. Specifically natural, sulfate free Dry Farm wine.

Why? Because it takes longer to drink, you’ll consume less [ meaning less calories/sugar/carbs ], & adding ice promotes hydration [ ice= water= no hangover= winning ].

Cha-ching.

Unless you’re a profesh wine sommelier, this tip is the.best.evs. Esp for the holidays.

Cheers!

Love.L

    I knew a couple who would always make ice cubes out of whatever they were drinking. When little kids came over and drank milk they’d make milk ice cubes for them. (Because normal ice cubes make it watery.) If they made iced coffee they’d make coffee ice cubes. Weird, but sometimes helpful! Doesn’t help you out with calories, though.

    For the purists who wouldn’t dare water down their wine, freeze grapes and use them in place of ice (or if you want to be a bit more fancy for a holiday party or something). FTR, I’m not a purist and have been known to use ice on the regular. Who wants to wait for the bottle to chill?! Grapes are just a cute little extra.

    Bwahaha, love the ice cube shapes, and also the idea above about making ice cubes out the wine. I wish it were that simple though :(. The freezing point would be about -6 °C by the alcohol alone. In addition, there are some sugars, salts, etc. which will lower the freezing point a little more. If only.. although reusable flower ice cube shapes still do the trick!

    Such a fantastic idea Lauryn. You know I love red wine and have really had to cut it out because of all the sugar. I will try this for sure! xo

    I wanted to made a comment about what a waste it is for your wine to put ice in it, “typically American thing” or something lame like that (coming from a dutchie = european = so kinda french = wine gods) but then I couldn’t because I’m secretly in love with your blog and your fun writing and realised that I’m longing for a glass of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio. With reusable icecubes.

      I found them at Bed, Bath, and Beyond : ). But there’s a link above to find anchor-shaped ice cube trays too! XO.

    Here in Thailand they almost always put ice cubes in beer. The first time you see it, you think they’re crazy. But it really helps keep your drink cool in the heat, and since they always are topping off your glass from a large bottle it never gets too watered-down.

    I don’t usually put ice cubes on my wine, I drink it straight from the cooler. But as you describe your experience I would love to give a shot. Thank you for this. I loves reading your blogs.

    I love wine country and since I live in Washington I’ve visited winey country here and in Oregon, plenty of times. The last time I was in Napa I was very young and would love to return as I really loved the landscape. Domaine Carneros is quite grand and I’d love to see the winery -Grgich Hills Estate- that put California wines on the map. I also like train rides and that would be such a fun way to taste wines and see the scenery pass by slowly.

    The White wine is a wine wich colour can be, yellow-green, straw-yellow, or yellow-gold. It’s made with alcoholic and grapes wine also available in red colour. I tell you white wine has existed for at least 2500 years. I have some collection of white wine.
