Slainte is Irish or Gaelic for Cheers! I have been enjoying some lovely wines lately and thought I would share some of them with you. Because I have allergies, sometimes white wine tastes a little fishy to me. That is common among people with allergies and sinus problems. So I'm pretty much a red wine girl, especially since I've come to the island where my allergies are crazy all the time. Below are three different red wines I'm loving right now:

Catena Malbec (this is my current favorite!)

Wild Horse Merlot (I first tried this in LA at KOI and fell in love)

(this is a great wine to bring to or serve at parties because it's a mix of different types of reds, so if you're unsure of which red someone likes, then you can't go wrong with this one!)
What is your favorite wine?
Pink Julep!



  1. Oh, my, I love so many wines! LOL! Firestone Merlot is good as is anything by Toad Hollow. I love Ravenswood Red Zin.

    But, I also fancy some of the cheaper wines, too, from Trader Joes. I even like Barefoot. Yes, I said Barefoot. Hehehe...

    I tried a sparkling wine (not too fizzy) this weekend from Trader Joes called Prosecco "Vino Frizzante." Very good! I also bought one called Lambrusco as they were out of the Vino Verde that was highly recommended to me. They said it was fabulous (both white, though) and similiar to Verde. I haven't tried this one yet, but the bottle is really pretty. :)

    I picked up a red one called Nero d' Avola. We'll see. Again, came highly recommended.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I love Malbec. I will give this one a try for sure!

    Thanks for the foundation tip. If can't find one at my derm appt. tomorrow, I'll be heading to Sephora to try all the ones suggested to me.

    Have a great day!

  2. I really love Gabiano chianti! It goes so well with a simple piece of pizza
