I’m a “go with what I know” kind of gal when it comes to wines. Hubs is a bit more daring, but me? I go with my tried and true favorites. So, when I was asked to try some new flavorful and sparkly flavors of Barefoot Wine, I was totally game! I’d seen them before at events like Zooma, so I knew they were a pretty solid wine.
Barefoot Refresh is a new take on the wine spritzer but better. It’s lightly bubbly, and much more flavorful than your traditional wine spritzer and comes in at the perfect price point of $8 per bottle.
I enjoyed the Summer Red and the Perfectly Pink.
Hubs and I stayed in last Friday for our anniversary date night attempt #1. We ordered up some sushi and I busted out the Summer Red. I was in love. Not just with the husband for our fourth anniversary but with the wine. It was sweet, but not too sweet. Bubbly without being overly carbonated.
I really enjoyed both wines – I tend to lean towards sweeter wines anyhow. Sometimes however, moscato based wines tend to almost too sweet. Even though both of these wines were moscato blends – the summer red is a pinot noir rose blended with moscator and the perfectly pink is a granache blended with moscato. Both wines were chilled lightly in the fridge so it didn’t take long to get the bottles ready
We enjoyed the red with sushi, and some dessert for our Friday evening date night in which was really refreshing and a delicious addition to it. Gotta say, there are few wines that bum me out when they’re empty and this was one of them.
The pink was equally as refreshing, enjoyed out on the porch one night after bedtime and it was really enjoyable! Even though it had the sweetness from the moscato it was a little bit dryer from the granache. Think sweetish rose flavors. Yum!
This weekend we’re in South Carolina visiting my dad and since my usual wines couldn’t be found last night, I went for Barefoot and picked up a couple bottles to enjoy over the weekend. Barefoot is a solid, lower price point wine with lots of flavor for your buck. I’d also pick these up if I were to host another JLA event at home again – they’d be perfect to enjoy at home with a bunch of gal pals – especially if you have friends who are just getting into wines, these are easy to enjoy and incredibly flavorful!
What’s your favorite wine to enjoy on a night in? Have you ever tried Barefoot wines? If so, what’s your favorite flavor?
