Mezzacorona Wine sent me a complimentary array of their amazing wines! Therefore, we must call this a #sponsored post.  What they did not know is that I would love it so much, I’d add it to the 24/7 Modern Mom™ Picks in this year’s Holiday Gift Guide! Everyone loves Wine! Okay – maybe not everyone, but a lot of people love wine to take the edge off of that other whine!

The bottles looked so gorgeous in their super-safe packaging, I almost didn’t want to take them out. (There is a top to each set so the bottles remain secure in shipping.  They arrived in perfect condition!)

That’s the Pinot Noir I’m holding.  That bottle was all mine! It’s really good. It was so good that I savored it with small glasses of wine at night throughout the week.  I didn’t share the bottle with anyone. Of course, wine is really best when you share it, so I had to make an exception for the other bottles, which were all great.  Not too sweet. Not too bitter.  Every bottle, just right.  There is so much you can do with wine, especially a great Mezzacorona, and here’s what I did:

  • I hoarded the Pinot Noir for myself.
  • I shared the Moscato with a good friend.
  • I cooked with the Chardonnay. (Okay – I might have sipped it too.)
  • I took the others to gatherings.

I also had a glass with our own Chef Barret’s Pan Seared Scallops, I prepared all by myself. (with HIS recipe) Try his recipe HERE!

A great bottle of wine can say all of these things:

  • Family.
  • Friends.
  • Thank you.
  • I love you.
  • I’m not the jerk who always shows up empty handed ready to eat the 18-hour sacrifice you made in the kitchen to offer me that amazing Thanksgiving meal you’ve been cooking for me for the last (insert number) years.
  • Hey, relax. You deserve it!
  • Let’s cuddle.
  • Let’s celebrate.
  • Happy Thanksgiving!
  • Merry Christmas!

Mezzacorona Wine not only says all of those things, but it’s actually yummy! It’s not one of those wines that people barely sip, pretending it’s because they’ve already had too muchwhen what they really want to say is: “Yucky!” Definitely not one of those wines!

It is not necessary to bring a buffet to your holiday dinner host, but do bring something.  Wine or (preferably AND) flowers are always a great choice.  It says something.  You don’t have to spend a fortune.  Mezzacorona Wine is affordable. You don’t have to bring gifts for everyone.  Bring something that can be shared and enjoyed together.  That’s what the Holidays are about anyway.

Mezzacorona Wine had no idea what I would write or if I would write about their product.  I’m sold.  Try one of their fabulous bottles and I bet you’ll be sold too.
