It’s wine cultivating season, and our friends over at Winc have just the wine to celebrate!
September is the month for wine cultivation, when the grapes are at their best. The key elements of wine cultivating involve picking, crushing, and fermentation of the grapes. Then the fermented mixture must be aged to make the actual wine which is then packed, transported, distributed, and finally enjoyed by the consumer!
It is truly an art. There are so many factors that go into crafting the perfect wine, it requires skill and a keen grasp of the wine world (and a whole lot of patience)! Winc is a personalized wine club that has perfected this exact process. As wine enthusiasts ourselves, we like to take the time to appreciate a quality glass of wine.
Honey Beast, a full bodied white wine, hails from Paso Robles, California– an area known for its viticulture and production of the finest wines around. It should be no surprise how lovely this one came out, but we couldn’t help but get excited over how well it pairs with our Celebration Cupcakes!
What separates this particular wine from the rest is its perfectly golden honey hue made from Roussanne grapes. These grapes are typically used in blends, however the Honey Beast contains 90% Roussanne and has a hint of Muscat for an enhanced aroma. And to top it off, the wine has been aged in oak for nine months, so it is ripe for the tasting! It’s lively and has an extra kick to it– great for all wine lovers who are looking to try something new.
You can get Honeybeast here and you’ll receive $20 off your first order! YAY!
Now, you may be wondering why our creamy, rainbow sprinkle-filled cupcakes and Winc’s classy wine work so well together. The variety of grapes in the wine give it buttery and floral scents which accentuate the sweetness in our frosting extremely well. We use vanilla extract in our cake and this complements the oaky tones of the wine quite nicely. And this goes without saying, but they just look so darn good together. It’s true, sprinkles really do go with everything!
