I have a confession to make. This past weekend I was at the Everywoman Conference in Whistler (which was amazing and I will post about soon) and on the Saturday night they had a formal 3 course sit down dinner complete with cash bar. I have no problem with cash bars, but I do have a problem with the wine selection that they usually carry at said cash bars (and ok, the prices too). Normally it’s semi-warm Sauvignon Blanc or worse yet, semi-warm Chardonnay (barf!).
So……I had resigned myself to a night of drinking warm SB, and wandered next door to the ATM to get some cash, when lo and behold I found myself outside a cold beer and wine store!
(Cue the music!) HALLELUJAH! HALLELUJAH! Seriously! A full cooler of COLD whites all under 15 bucks a bottle!
Now at this point in the weekend I probably already had eaten and drank waayyyyyyyy more than the calories I had expended during the sessions so I saw a bottle of “Skinny Grape Pinot Grigio” in the cooler which intrigued me as it claimed to only have 80 calories per serving (so if I drink the entire bottle myself thats only 320 cals!). And it was COLD and only 13 bucks! Yay me!
So I non-nonchalantly sauntered back into the ballroom with my paper bag of Skinny Grape and was pleasantly surprised with it..it’s light and fruity for sure…..definitely a little less flavorful than a regular PG, but that seems par for the course for a “light” wine. So my verdict is thumbs up for sure, because who doesn’t love more drinks for fewer calories. Holla!
