At the risk of sounding like Honey Boo Boo…… I love my Mommy Juice! I have mentioned before one of the fun perks of blogging is being sent products to test out and to review on occasion. I have to say, hands down, this was my favorite package that I have received yet! These wines were so fun, that my plan was to save the bottles of Mommy Juice wine to help celebrate my friend Julie’s upcoming birthday. So here is my confession, after my final school Open House of the season (did I mention that I have four kids?!) I came home….tucked them all into bed….and I broke open the Mommy Juice. That’s it, there it is, (I am sorry Julie, there is still a bit left that I am willing to share with you!) but I have never tasted such a luxurious glass of wine! O.K., that may be the frazzled open house mom talking, but the truth is, it was really good wine! I was pleasantly surprised that I liked it so much. Then I read about founder Cheryl Durzy, mother of 2, who has worked in the wine industry since 1999 (hmmm, the year my oldest child was born).
Cheryl works at her family’s Central Coast Winery, Clos LaChance, she sits on all sorts of fancy wine boards, and she passed with Merit the Advanced Certificate level of the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. In other words the wine tastes good because she knows what she is doing! She decided she had to produce a wine called Mommy Juice because her kids would point to a wine glass whenever they saw one and exclaim “That’s Mommy Juice!”. How funny that we all call it that!
So now I had to break open the bottle of White to see if it lived up to the deep, rich, full bodied red. The White Wine Mommy Juice is a Chardonnay, which is my favorite type of white to begin with, and the Chardonnay Mommy Juice tasted as good as the red! Crisp, not too sweet. Lovely. Is it wrong to be excited that I’ve found a wine brand where I love the label as much as the taste!?
These are great bottles of wine to bring along as gifts for all sorts of occasions. Your mommy friends, or friends who know what a busy mommy you are, will love them. Mommy Juice Wines can be purchased online , or ask for it at your local wine shop. I guess I can’t show up with two opened bottles of wine to celebrate with, that would be as uncouth as showing up with a half eaten birthday cake! I do plan on ordering more, so girlfriends don’t worry, I promise I will share next time!
