Hey! The weekend is coming up, and what better way to wind down after a week of hard work than to gather your girl friends and celebrate with a bottle (or two) of wine! I am not much of a beer drinker, but open a great bottle of wine, and I’m there. 🙂 Incidentally, Wine Depot Online is having a weekend sale on a lighter variant of sauvignon blanc from Villa Maria, New Zealand’s most awarded winery.
Wine Depot’s newest wine offering, Villa Maria Private Bin Lighter Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, is great for dinners or intimate get-togethers with your girl friends. For starters, it is so much lighter at just 9.5 % alcohol content. Most sauvignon blancs range from 12 to 13 %.
This light sauvignon blanc, made from white grapes that New Zealand is known for, is fresh and vibrant, fruity and citrusy. It has the flavors of fresh herbs, grapefruit and white peach, and the aromas of fresh snow peas and zesty limes. Being a wine beginner myself, I find the Villa Maria Lighter Sauvignon Blanc perfect for my taste.
A chilled glass of this wine goes perfectly with something light such as baked fish or a garden salad. If I were having it with my sisters or girl friends, I’d serve it with our favorite light cheeses such as brie, camembert and feta, along with crackers, nuts and grapes. Mmmmm, sounds like a great idea… Ladies? 😉
Oh yes, the weekend sale… As an introductory offer, Wine Depot Online is offering the Villa Maria Private Bin Lighter Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc on 20% discount at Php672 a bottle. Go to www.winedepot.com.ph to purchase this wine at the special rate from September 16th – 18th.

Cheers to the weekend!
