When I started MoscatoMom years ago it was not because I was a wine connoisseur or even really a wine enthusiast. I was just a Mom who had discovered a love for a sweet wine that in my opinion paired well with everything… food, life, and laughter. Since starting MoscatoMom though I have gotten to try literally dozens of wines from all over the world, so when I had a chance to team up with Winc – a company that literally brings the wines of the world right to your doorstep, I was intrigued.
With Winc you fill out their questionnaire and based on your answers they suggest wines from their extensive list of labels starting at just $13 a bottle. You can choose from their suggestions or put together a collection all your own. They are then shipped to your door for you to try. You can rate how you like each bottle, and from your ratings, Winc will suggest more wines to fit your taste!
I had the chance to try out Winc and chose a selection of six white wines that all sounded delicious. I invited four of my closest girlfriends over for a fondue night and to test out said wines… you know… for research and all. Five women and six bottles of wine? Sounds perfect.
I chose four wines that Winc recommended, and then two others that just sounded tasty. Truth be told I also thought the bottles were pretty – do not tell me looks do not matter! I also chose the ones that said they were “sweet” since… well we are all Moscato people and sweet is pretty much all we drink.
When they arrived there was this Winc Journal which was a cool surprise! It was filled with the “A to Z” of wine! The girls and I had fun flipping through it and learning about wine terms and learning about all of the wines they currently have available. I already had a list of wines to order next before we popped the first cork!
With each bottle, I read the label and we tasted it together. To be honest – some were a hit and others were a miss. When you have a group of Moscato Lovers who are used to SWEET wine, it is tough to find ones to compare. However, it was a fun night… and we did polish off all six bottles. Again… for research.
