Jeannie is going home this weekend to see her mom, and was inspired to write this blog post just in time for this Sunday's Mother's Day holiday. Here at 90+ Cellars we are proud to provide the wine that helps Mom get through a variety of situations. Without further ado we give you…
Five Times When Moms Need Wine
After a LONG day
Let’s face it: being a mom is not always a walk in the park. Whether you’re a mother to a newborn with a knack for waking up at 3am, a teenager who only communicates via text, or a college grad who sees no good reason to move out, your kids will always find a way to drive you a little crazy. Add a full time job to that and you’ve got borderline chaos! And let’s not even get started on the endless list of chores that most moms battle every day. While there’s no such thing as a typical day for a mom, the one thing you can count on is that it will be busy. And after a hectic day nothing tastes better than a big glass of wine.
That said, every mom needs to get together with her girlfriends once in a while to wind down and have some fun. Whether it’s a book club, a potluck dinner, a weekend getaway, or a simple night in with her closest friends, chances are a few bottles of wine will make an appearance.
It’s rare, but so glorious when it happens. The kids are in bed. The to-do list is up to date. Cell phone is off. Time to relax before the craziness of day-to-day life starts back up. When the stars align and mommy gets some me time, chances are the first thing she reaches for is a bottle of wine.
In our opinion, most recipes call for wine. Whether you’re putting it in the food or pouring it in your glass while you wait for the pizza delivery guy, a little wine at dinnertime is always a good thing.
For Mother’s Day!
As you can see from the rest of the list, moms don’t need a special occasion to be in the mood for wine. But why not give her a special bottle on her special day? After everything you’ve put her through (see our first point), she probably needs it. We recommend bubbles for a Mother’s Day brunch, a smooth Chardonnay, or Pinot Noir for later in the day, or a nice dry rosé to sip all day long.
