I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Brancott Estate Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
This past weekend, we have had some beautiful weather and it was the perfect time to enjoy the weather with a nice glass of wine. I’m not much of a drinker but I do enjoy an ocassionaly glass of wine. More specifically, a wine that is lighter in flavor… in calories and Brancott Estate’s “Flight Song” Wines fit the bill perfectly! The “Flight Song” wines are full of crisp flavor (a definite palate pleaser), as well as have 20% fewer calories compared to their other wines. What’s not to love about that!
When I heard about Brancott Estates recently introduced new lighter wine collection Flight Song, I was anxious to give it a try since when it comes to wine, I can be very picky. The wines come in two varieties: Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc. They both are light, crisp and tangy with hints of fruit and floral aromas. I knew right after the first sip that I have found a wine I could enjoy on a regular basis.
And the best part is that I didn’t miss the calories one bit.

These wines in my opinion were just right and would be equally fine companions at your poolside, on the terrace at sundown or at a dinner party.They are perfect for those of you looking to enjoy a lighter wine just in time for summer.
