#WineWednesday: Making a Splash

Hey Y'all!!

First, I want to start by extending a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the wonderful readers who provided feedback on my post last week. I received some really fabulous feedback and can't wait to try some of your suggestions from the survey.

This week's wine is Cannonball Chardonnay

Let's Dive in, shall we?


I was suggested this wine from a dear friend, who also happens to work at a package store. You wouldn't believe the connects I have... 

just kidding. 

He assured me that it was quite tasty and that if I really enjoyed Chard (which I do) then I should definitely give this one a shot. 

No need to twist my arm. 


After, I came to my senses and let it chill for a bit.. Don't know how you do the voodoo that you do. So, well it's a spell, hell, makes me wanna sip sip sip. (no, wait... wrong place. Bonus points if you can name that song tho!) 

Anyway, I let it completely chill to get it at optimum drinking temperature. 

See here in the South, it's hotter than a which's tit, in a brass bra! I mean: It. Is. Smokin' Hot! 

The delightful little boy doing a Cannonball on the label really hit home for me. Shoot, it is Summer after all. (In case you needed any reminder) 

A couple of glasses down the wine hatch and I was doing a Cannonball myself! (no, really!)

This wine is the Perfect Summer Wine. So refreshing with light notes of citrus. Yet, still bold and oak-ey. (trust me, it's a word)

Customized Etched Wine Glass from Gifted Sistas
Reigning from Sonoma County, a little less than $15 a bottle and a ease-of-access twist top - this wine will now be one of my favorites! 

Pairs wonderfully with ribs (I would know) and I would totally bring this pool or LAKESIDE. 

Thank you for the wonderful suggestion, friend! 

Wishing you all a wonderful #WineWednesday & be sure to share your wine photos using the #WineWednesday hashtag. It's like a virtual wine tasting and I'd love to see what your sippin' on!
