Sooo .. guess who went completely out her comfort zone last Friday? Yes, these are wine bottles you see and yes, I did go to a wine tasting!
It was at Slater and Whittaker and it was amazing coz I got to hang out with two amazing bloggers over some wine and snacks.
I’ll prefix this by saying that I don’t drink – at all. I don’t think it’s terrible or anything, I just don’t like the way alcohol tastes so I’m not a fan. That said, I just couldn’t turn down an invitation from the lovely Jean wandimi of Wine & Food review to sample some Chardonnay and get a little cultured in the process.
I went with Winnie Odande of Fitndiscover and we had such a blast! A vlog will go up eventually lol with all the details of the day, but I took a ton of pictures to share with you guys.
We sampled the Golden Kaan Chardonnay 2014. It was a very light and airy white wine, and I totally see why it’s best paired with white meat (fish, chicken, etc) The red Golden Kaan Chardonnay had a very distinct “finish”, which is what experts call the afterburner down your throat. A little harder for me to handle, but I looved that I couldn’t taste the alcohol in any of them.
It was great, and I’d totally recommend visiting the Shop for all your wine needs. This is the retail arm of the wholesale company, so you’ll get a really large selection of top notch product.
So that’s what I’ve been up to lol. So many things planned, so little time. My holiday is half gone so I have to cram a bunch of activities into the time I have left, starting with my next travel destination this weekend! So happy, I can’t even tell you. I need a holiday asap!!
As always, thanks for dropping by 🙂 Let me know what you think of the pictures in the comments down below. Be gentle though, I really love them lol.
