I’ve always had an affinity for the finer things in life, but haven’t always had a budget that matched. Growing up, my mom was the queen of sales and coupons (in fact, she still is). Whenever there was a sale at Target or Walmart or Macy’s (you get the picture), we were the first ones there. I remember waking up…View Post

I drank Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Zinfandel almost exclusively. Chardonnay and champagne were acceptable, but I really never understood the appeal of white wines until recently.
As my palette developed, and I started to eat a plant-based diet, white wines slowly became my go-to. The light, fruity drinks are perfect for summer, and they won't stain your white and bright outfits :)
Bring one of these four wines to your next summer gathering, and you'll be the star of the party!View Post
