“The most expensive part of having kids is all the wine you have to drink.”
-Mad Housewife Cellars
It's so true. The more kids I had, the more wine I drank. It's always great to find a fun, affordable wine that you like to drink. For more than 10 years, Mad Housewife Cellars has been making those fun, affordable wines.
Mad Housewife Wine
I sampled the the award-winning Mad Housewife Chardonnay and Merlot varietals.
This California Chardonnay is filled with flavors of melon, apple, and pear. I'm not generally a fan of California Chardonnays; there are only a few I actually like and this is one of them. It's got hints of oak with a nice creamy finish and medium-mouthfeel. This Mad Housewife Chardonnay has won 17 awards at various wine festivals and competitions from 2007–2012. Amazing! The day I drank this, we paired it with a delightful lemon cake with cream cheese frosting.
I like Merlots, and this Merlot doesn't disappoint. The prominent blackberry and plum flavors balanced with hints of vanilla and spice make this Merlot easy to pair with numerous dishes. I paired with a Double Chocolate Oreo Whoopie pie from a local bakery and it was fantastic! The Mad Housewife Merlot has won 13 awards from 2008–2012. Not shabby at all!I received samples of Mad Housewife wines to review. All opinions are my own.
