Wine Brings People Together
Enjoy the Show (part 1 of 4)
Wine Dinner Ideas…
Wine Picks: 6 bottles: 2 white & 4 red (8 people). Stick to classics like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pre-plan who is bringing what.
Centerpiece: Keep the centerpiece short so you can see your pals across the table. Use real fruit, real candles or small flowers. After all, you’re real, right?
Etiquette: Serve Champagne prior to seating your friends because it works fastest. Place double sided name cards at the table so your friends don’t have to think.
Wine Place Setting: (From left right) Dessert, Red, White, Champagne and Water glass. Hydration is key.
Who sits where? Split up couples and don’t seat yourself at the head of the table.

This past week on the show William gave out his secret Sangria Recipe…Really? Yes this is true.. Spread the word before it is hidden forever!!! Sangria (Spanish: Sangría) is a wine punch typical of Argentina, Uruguay, Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of a wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. To be specific, a wine is a light, dry, young, high acid, unoaked, inexpensive wine, usually red wine due to Sangria’s connotation with the word blood. Other reds that work well include French styles such as Gamay or Beaujolais, and Italian styles such as Grignolino, Bardolino, Dolcetto, Freisa or Lambrusco. In the case of fruits, they are chopped or sliced such as orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar, simple syrup, orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other liquids such as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added.
