Wipe That Wine Off Your Mouth!By Marisa D'Vari | September 1st, 2011 | Category: News, Wine PR | 1 Comment »
So there you are, at your favorite club or restaurant, sipping red wine and suddenly you spot someone you know! You smile and chat amiably, and only after you see yourself in the mirror do you realize you have Dracula teeth!
It happens to the best of us, and on wine chat rooms on the Internet people often speak of "Purple Teeth" as a rite of passage.
Tonight I went to a rather fun party in the West Village where a lively young crowd were celebrating the newly launched Borracha Wine Wipes with red wines from Deep Sea wines from California's Rancho Arroyo Grande. I chatted a bit with enthusiastic Giliian Conway, VP of Communication, about her family's winery.
The wines (tonight was a Pinot Noir, Cab, and a red Rhone blend) were delicious and well-balanced, good fruity yet not "fruity" or too ripe from the sun. The soil in Arroyo Grande (near Santa Barbara) was once an ancient sea bed, which accounts for the acidity and minerality.
Though the evening was very fun and lively, it appeared to be done on a budget with a great deal of creativity. I loved the goodie bags, which included some (much needed) compact sized wine wipes, and a fun list of other things such as "hangover vitamins " (Vitamin B, Vitamin C, and Milk Thistle) along with a t-shirt, wine opener, and all the rest.
