This post brought to you courtesy of Mom It Forward blogger network & Turning Leaf Refresh. All opinions and experiences presented here are my own.
While I enjoy a nice oaky cab with dinner on occasion, it isn’t what I would call refreshing. At parties and other social gatherings, I prefer something a bit lighter and more “easy going”. I’ve also been known to add seltzer to wine and make spritzers, because I am mighty fond of bubbles. Well, Turning Leaf (a brand I’m sure most of you are already familiar with if you are a wine drinker) has just the thing, if you are looking for a fizzy and refreshing party beverage.
This line of wines is called Refresh, and comes in four options:
- Crisp White
- Red Moscato
- Pink Moscato
I was sent the Crisp White and the Red Moscato to try. Honestly, I am not much of a Moscato drinker, so I probably won’t be picking up any of those options, but I did enjoy the Crisp White. It was a nice light and refreshing wine which I felt worked well with some fizz added. The brand suggests serving these slightly fizzy wines chilled, over ice, with a slice of orange or lime. I just used ice, but agree that an orange slice would be nice.
Refresh by Turning Leaf would make a nice alternative to beer to offer on game day, or a great “Leaf Raking Motivator” (I sometimes like a wine while doing yard work… and yeah, I get that I just suggested Turning Leaf, for Leaf Turning…lol). At just $8, why not pick up a few bottles to have on hand.
As part of this campaign we were asked to select a blogger to “Refresh It Forward” to. They will receive the same kit I did, so they can try the wine as well. The first person who came to mind was Penelope of Penelope’s Oasis. She is always so helpful to her fellow bloggers, and takes the sweetest pictures of her little boys.
