Preview: The Skinny Vine Wine

Before I begin let me ask you a question…

Would you rather…blink and be finished eating a 100-calorie snack pack or enjoy a full size glass of Skinny Vine wine with far less quilt and much more fun?

Well I have been given an amazing (at least I think it’s amazing) opportunity to take part in The Skinny Vine TGTaste taking place today at 5:00pm PT/8:00pm ET.

What’s a TGTaste you may ask, well we will be tweeting and sipping wines during that time and we will be joined by some awesome people:

Head Thirsty Girl Leslie Sbrocco will also be joining in on the fun, you can join her on twitter at @beathirstygirl

The winemaker will be joining us during the chat as well and I will have the opportunity to ask the winemaker about these wines and learn more about The Skinny Vine Wines.

To say I am excited is not even easy to explain.

Now here is a little legal matter, I received the wines as a gift and I will be giving my honest opinion about them during the twitter party/chat this evening,  but I have to direct you to this link 

Now here are the wines I will be tasting and talking about this evening on twitter:

Flavor That Flatters

The Skinny Vine – a soon-to-debut line of light and refreshing wines that happen to have 25-30% fewer calories than traditional wine and less that 95 calories per 5 oz serving. The Skinny Vine company is so confident in the quality and taste of this wine that consumers all over America are currently participating in blind taste-tests to see if they can distinguish The Skinny Vine from full calorie wines…and you guessed it, they can’t!

So let me share a little with you about each wine:

Skinny Vine Slim Chardonnay

Winemaker’s Notes:

This California Chardonnay was carefully selected to exhibit fresh fruit characteristics to enhance a light and refreshing style. Bright citrus, stone fruit and a hint of floral aromas are maintained because this wine sees very little oak integration, keeping it bright, refreshing and fruit-forward. The resulting wine is beautifully fruit-driven, clean and crisp for light and carefree moments.

Per 5oz serving: Calories 86, Carbohydrates 4.5g, Protein less than 1 gram, Fat Og

next up:

The Thin Zin

Winemaker Notes:

The rose of Zinfandel from California was carefully selected to exhibit the juicy berry characteristics that make this wine so beautifully aromatic and delicious. A slow fermentation allowed our winemaker to achieve the perfect level of sweetness, which is complemented by a mouthwatering acidity.

Per 5 oz serving: Calories 89, Carbohydrates 8.1g, Protein less than 1 gram, Fat Og

And last but certainly not least :

Mini Moscato

Winemaker Notes:

This California Moscato is a blend of Muscat of Alexandria, Muscat Blanc a Petits Grains and Orange Muscat from California, carefully selected to exhibit the light and refreshing varietal characteristics that make this wine so mouthwatering and delicious.

Per 5oz serving: Calories 96, Carbohydrates 10g, Protein less than 1 gram, Fat Og

Personal Side Note: I enjoy Moscato wine and I am really looking forward to trying this one…
