Just like you, I work hard. When your hobby turns into a business it can be very difficult to structure a fifty hour work-week. Typically your fifty hour week looks more like an eighty hour work week—and on top of it you still have the tasks of shopping for food, taking the kids to appointments, managing the bills, walking the dog, pulling the weeds, making the meals, and neglecting the laundry pile!
Sometimes I just want to hit the pause button on my day and make it all slow down. Sometimes I need a little escape. While I am typically known to turn to (copious amounts of) dark chocolate for said escape, I also enjoy a good glass of wine.
Chateau Ste Michelle asked me to review their Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon and their Columbia Valley Riesling, both from the Columbia Valley wine region. Sigh. Indeed it’s a tough job but someone has to do it, right *wink*? I recieved two bottles of these great wines to try out and went to work.
The Riesling was my favorite on this day but it might have just fit my mood-of-the-moment better. It was light, crisp, and sweet and the perfect accompaniment to a warm, sunny day. The Cabernet Sauvignon was smooth, smoky, and infused me with warmth. I would love to drink this one on a cool evening.
Chateau Ste. Michelle gives you a great excuse to hit the pause button on your day and stop to find your happy place. Maybe for you it’s sitting in the yard with a glass of wine after doing the gardening or hosting a formal dinner with great friends. Chateau Ste. Michelle is the prefect accompaniment to that moment, that place where you truly find yourself – your happy place – your chateau.
Let’s break this down for a better visual of how I get to my happy place, my chateau:
