GAL APPROVED! Red, White & And How To Drink Wine From Millesima! Plus Great Gear From KIMOA & Stay Safe This Holiday with Netamo!By The DivaGals | June 30, 2017 | Gal Approved
DRINK. This long weekend, celebrate the red, white and rose!
Red. DNA is gaining a cult following as a favorite of people like us who enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon. It is comprised of 61% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Bring a bottle to the cookout this weekend to share. Or, if you like your wines as passionately as you love diamonds, we recommend Cabernet Franc backbone. It’s a versatile wine that is incredible with foods, it’s texture made by Vergelegen, a sister company to DeBeers diamond company. Plus its highly rated and will get even better with time. Drop that knowledge on your hosts and they will definitely be impressed.
White. Mix it up this Fourth with a white Cotes du Rhone. We tried a bunch at Wine Enthusiast America’s 100 Best Wine Restaurants Issue Party at La Sirena. We loved the bouquet scent of Jean-Luc Colombo La Redonne (70 percent Viognier, 30 percent Roussanne) and the Ogier 2016 Artesis, which has Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Marsanne and Viognier. Pick up a bottle and the issue to learn more.
Rose. The Fourth is the perfect time for Rose! Our choice? Commanderie de Peyrassol Cotes de Provence Rose 2016, part of Millesima’s extensive portfolio. The blend comes from the oldest grapes in the Cote de Provence area, which produces full-bodied grapes, leading to a smooth finish. Check out these great tips from Hortense, whose family owns Millesima, on the best ways to drink wine, below!
WEAR. Spanish race car driver Fernando Alonso recently launched his own fashion & lifestyle brand, KIMOA. It’s filled with soft, comfortable apparel and accessories that are perfect for July 4th! Celebrate America’s independence with a cute, breezy sundress and a pair of trendy round frame sunglasses – which we love – and don’t forget a cozy hoodie in case it get’s chilly at night while you’re watching fireworks burst across the sky!
PROTECT. While you’re out enjoying fireworks, make sure your home is protected. Presence is Netatmo’s sleek outdoor security camera that keeps the home safe and secure.
