There is nothing worse than waking up with a hangover. Especially when it’s a hangover from only a glass or two of wine. Seriously, tell me what’s worse.
Well, I have a preventative measure… but first, let’s set the scene:
There you are at 6 pm, pouring yourself a glass of chilled rosé while making some cauliflower thins & avocado. You’re enjoying the wine so you pour yourself another glass then you go to bed around 10 & wake up with a headache. Like the psycho that I am I had to investigate why the hell I would wake up with headache from just a glass or two of wine. Like, this is not ok.
Sidenote: anyone else so inspired by Julia Haart’s wine glasses in My Unorthodox Life? So excited to sip an Italian red out of it when the baby is out.
I’ve tried so many different wines from all over the world, & I feel like I’ve finally figured it out: a lot of companies add shit to their wine. This means additives, aromas, colors, flavor alterations, sulfites & SUGAR. Yes. added. sugar. in. your. wine. So it’s no surprise that after two glasses you wake up with a headache. Because it’s basically like you had two Snickers bars. It’s disgusting that we buy a bottle of wine from Italy & think there’s no sugar added when there’s actually up to 40 grams.
THE BEST WINE FOR A HEADACHE-FREE MORNING
Anyways, as you know, a while ago my friend Katie of The Wellness Mama was on the podcast & she told me all about this company called Dry Farm Wines. The reason I was IMMEDIATELY interested is because they deliver it right to your door monthly – you know I love a delivery. Also, you can guarantee their wines:
♡ are natural, sustainable & biodynamic.
♡ are farmed & made using traditional wine making practices.
♡ have no chemical additives for aroma, color, flavor or texture enhancement.
♡ have no or minimal filtering/fining.
♡ have no or minimal addition of SO2 (sulfites).
♡ have no commercial yeast for flavor alteration.
♡ use minimal intervention in the vinification and aging.
To take it a step further I researched & learned about how specific they are about choosing their wines & they only procure authentic, natural wines.
THEN I TOOK IT EVEN FURTHER…. & got on the phone with the owners. They educated me about their wine, its low alcohol percentage & why there’s so much sugar & sulfites added to other wines. I told them that I love red wines from Italy, love rosé, & so they sent me some wine to try. They just get it.
It was time to put it to the test- always wanna human guinea pig myself for you guys. I had TWO HEAPING GLASSES of a Tuscan red, ate how I normally ate & went to bed.
The next morning, nothing.
Not even a speck of a headache. I didn’t even increase my water intake. So I decided to have my sister Mimi & best friend Westin try it ( don’t mean to brag but Westin knows his shit when it comes to alcohol & Mimi loves her wine, so they were the perfect people to test it out ).
They both said….. NO HANGOVER.
Some more fun facts about Dry Farm Wines:
♡ they use an independent certified enologist to test all wines so they can guarantee the wines are SUGAR FREE ( thank the lord ).
♡ they ensure every wine meets strict standards of health & purity ( we don’t want a bunch of shit in our wine that doesn’t need to be there ).
♡ they work with small family farmers to offer wine that’s grown & made the way nature intended.
♡ they support small, organic, natural wine growers with fair trade pricing.
♡ they verify a lower alcohol content & sulfites.
I want to talk about the lower alcohol content for a minute… having a shot of hard liquor is not the same as enjoying a glass of wine. SIPPING on a drink with a lower alcohol content gives your liver time to process the alcohol & it doesn’t overwhelm it. There’s such a fine line with drinking because in moderation it can be so beneficial ( less stress, lower inflammation, reduced risk of stroke & dementia ), but in excess it can be so deadly & really bad for your brain.
It’s nice to know that Dry Farm Wines never source wines that have more than 12.5% alcohol. So you can really enjoy an evening glass of wine without going too far, ya know?
There aren’t a lot of companies that seem to be able to make these same claims.
& not only that, I also feel there aren’t a lot of owners that care the way these owners care. To hop on the phone with them to hear their whole story was so interesting to hear & you can tell it’s their passion & craft to bring quality wine to customers everywhere.
Personally, I’m now a fan & felt like I needed to share this brand with you guys because it’s very TSC-esque. If you’re interested in checking them out just click here, then click SHOP & choose your delivery frequency, red, white or mixed, & then how many bottles you’d like. Done! I highly recommend the reds.
Anyways, stalk Dry Farm Wines & see for yourself.
That’s my spiel on wine. Thought you guys would love to know all these interesting factoids. I’m off to pour my first glass of the night & enjoy some dried mango.
Oh wait, before we go, just wanted to share with you guys some of my favorite cocktail gadgets & happy hour accessories. Duh, I ordered Julia Haart’s wine glasses before episode 1 was over. But I have some other fun tools that make opening a bottle of wine or making a cocktail an ‘experience’. Stalk all my happy hour favs here.
+ this cocktail smoker will really uplift your at-home drinks.
