Description


Over the years, we found ourselves going from college-age gals drinking Boones Farm to women with jobs splurging on labels we thought were oh-so-classy, such as Kendall Jackson.  Swiftly, our knowledge grew even more and we matured into women who attended dinner parties instead of just clubs – or even better: wine bars.  Napa quickly surpassed spring break in Cancun, and before we knew it…we were settling down…having babies and raising a family.  Dinner parties and wine tastings?  Whaaa? We were lucky if we had time to shower.  Wine who?  But, as we often do as mothers – we persevered.  As the kids grew, we found, and even required, more time for ourselves.  Becoming a mom didn’t mean we had to give up everything we knew; it just meant we had to get more creative after a day of “mommy this” and someone constantly pulling on our leg or needing our attention.  Rather than attending lavish events where wine was served and we had no bedtime; we grabbed a bottle of red or white depending on the mood or stresses of the day.  Some days required a nice, sweet white for celebration – say after naptimes proved successful for the third day in a row.  Or, the days that definitely warranted a smooth, bolder red (#epicfail)—accompanied by a cozy blanket and Netflix.  Whether it’s to celebrate or to unwind; wine certainly has not lost its purpose in our lives. 

We are mommoisseurs. (Mommoisseurs: wine enthusiasts who happen to be fabulous moms).  And we invite you to become mommoisseurs with us! 

Pour Me Some Wine reveals how you, too, can be a mommoisseur. The book will also take you through the emotional journey of the modern mom while offering clever suggestions of the perfect wine to pair with each specific mood we all encounter on a daily basis. The easy-to-read chapters are convenient for the busy mom. Read from the beginning or start at a chapter you are identifying with at any particular moment. Feeling overwhelmed? Then chapter 3 is for you! Is your husband driving you crazy, go straight to chapter 7. No matter the mood, you’ll find a story that you can relate to—driving home the beauty that you’re not alone in this crazy world of motherhood!

Make wine the event and pamper yourself, mama!  Try a few of the wines we suggest or brands of your own choosing while finding comfort in the stories offered from other moms who’ve been right where you are now.  We don’t have to stop being first-class wine lovers just because we had babies.

Pair this book with a bottle of your favorite wine for the perfect gift for your best girlfriends, sisters, co-workers; for the countless baby showers you’ll no doubt attend…or for the mom who really deserves it: you!

Ladies, it’s the not-so-new, yet hip, era for us wine lovers, moms. Join our club; we welcome you, future Mommoisseurs!
