Who doesn't want to unwind with a bottle of wine after a long week? Definitely not us. My girls and I, we love nothing better than catching up over wine. So despite busy schedules, we make it a point to meet up Friday nights to hang out at our favorite wine bar, exchange funny stories, giggle like high school girls, and try to feel human again after a long week at work.
Last Friday night however, we decided to ditch the usual wine bar and stay at my place instead. With the hubby gone for the weekend, we thought it would be nice to just get out of our heels and LBDs, let our hair down, and go crazy with chips (lots of it), desserts of all kinds (it's cheat night!), a bunch of rom-com flicks, flowing wine, and the new VinoVinti I recently got. I figured that if there's a night to try it out, this one would definitely be it.
So, here's how our fab night went.
In case you're not familiar with the name, VinoVinti is a carbonic acid extractor, and what it does is basically improve the flavor and smoothness of the wine within 20 to 30 seconds. It is even more effective than both decanting and aeration, and definitely on its way to being any wine enthusiast's new accessory of choice. It's simple, easy-to-use, and improves the overall taste and finish of the wine. Plus, it is designed to give you a lifetime of wine enjoyment!
Here's how it works:
For our wine that night, we went with our usual choice — red wine. But as mostly everyone brought a bottle of her choice, we ended up with bottles of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and some white wine too, which were perfect choices for the snacks I prepared.
Of course, what's a movie night without popcorn and chips? Buttered popcorn went fabulously with the Chardonnay, while the more flavorful chips were awesome with the Cabernet.
Here are our carefully-curated movie choices:
Clueless – to remind us of our smashing teen years during the 90s. We simply couldn't love this movie more than we already do.
Notting Hill – we could never stop swooning over this story of a “girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her”
500 Days of Summer – bittersweet love with a glorious soundtrack unfolding in the background. We simply can't get enough!
Love Actually – Christmas is fast approaching, and what great way to feel Christmasy than this feel-good movie?
With those three ingredients: wine, snacks, and movie… and of course, VinoVinti, we were up until the wee hours having a blast. The girls haven't quite gotten over with VinoVinti yet, and they were excitedly talking nonstop about what a great gift it would be for the wine aficionados in their lives this Christmas. I have to admit, I was thinking the same thing too. Make sure to like the VinoVinti on Facebook and stay posted with this awesome product.
So how about you, cooking up any plans for a girls' night anytime soon?
