Chick Wines

I ran across the border into Washington this week (for those who are new to the blog, I live in Southern British Columbia - a mere 40 minutes from the border.)  Canada Post has been on strike and I needed to get some mail out to the US, so I hit the closest post office and then headed for the grocery store to pick up my favourite chemical-laden creamers.

While at the grocery store, I happened by the wine aisle.  Front and center were a large selection of wines that seemed to have one thing in common...girls! 

Bright pink toppers, saucy images of women, or clever names that make you smile, these wines are just waiting for your next girls night in.

Here are just a few of the ones that caught my eye:

"Shameless Hussy" by Hard Row To Hoe Vineyards 

"Lady In Red" series by Kestrel Vinters

"Working Girl" wines by Olympic Cellars

"Girly Girl" wines by Girly Girl Wines

Although I couldn't bring any of these wines home to share with my girlfriends because I was just running across the border for an hour, I will be stopping to pick up some of these on my next camping trip South this Summer. 

If you are out and about and see any particularly fab bottles, let me know.  I'm always on the lookout for a groovy wine to try.  After all, it's not the pedigree of the grape on the vine, it's the sassy inside the bottle that counts!

I love wine!

My absolute favorite is Weinhaus Richter Piesporter Micheslberg Riesling. I have no idea who imports it, and I've only ever seen it at the restaurant I work at, but it's delicious.

Rosa Regale is a fantastic rose-bubbly that is delicious with chocolate.

If you can find it, Segura Viudas Heredad Cava from Spain is a fantastic bubbly as well.

Shaya Verdejo (while not girly on the bottle) is also delicious.

Also, Bloom makes a great, cheap Riesling.

Those are cute! While I am not a wine drinker I constantly want to just buy wines that come in cool bottles or have funny labels or names. I think if I gave into my instinct I would have one of the most eclectic unused wine collections around, lol.

I've always thought the "Fat Bastard"-brand wines were hilarious (and decent!), and I've always wanted to try the "Evil"-brand stuff just because of the labels :-p

I just know a glass of "Working Girls" would taste fabulous!

What fun labels! I think that boutique wineries are getting quite clever in their marketing.

I listed a number of Halloween wines that I found last October, on my Halloween blog. I wanted to buy them all, just for the unique bottle and/or the label, but I remained strong. Sadly, I've developed an allergy to wine (but I can still use it in cooking! lol)
