Wine Without the Headache


There are so many people I know that don't drink wine just because they're scared of the headache that night or the next day, even after only one glass. There are so many preservatives and chemicals in wine now, that it's almost impossible to avoid. Many of the world's mass-produced wines are made with up to 300 chemical additives- yucky. Per Sarah Shadonix, the average mass produced bottle of wine can contain up to 16 grams of added sugar (more than a glazed donut) THAT'S INSANE. I've finally found a wine company that makes not only headache free wine, but absolutely delicious wine! Scout & Cellar is clean crafted, grown naturally with no synthetic pesticides. S & C also has ZERO grams of added sugar in their wines and ZERO added chemicals. 

I was sent the 2015 Girasole Hybrid Red priced at - $20 a bottle 
and the 2016 Cooper Moutain Vineyards Chardonnay priced at - $25 a bottle




2015 Girasole Hybrid Red: Mendocino, California
Organic, vegan and has a 13.5% alcohol content
Tasting Notes: Fresh and appealing with ripe cherry, blackberry, mocha (yum) and sweet dried herbs backed by mouth-coating tannis
Pairs perfectly with hard cheeses, pork, and mushroom Bolognese

Barra and Girasole is family run by Martha and Charlie Barra and their kids.

2016 Cooper Mountain Vineyards Chardonnay: Willamette Valley, Oregon
Organic, vegan and has a 13.5% alcohol content.
Tasting Notes: Lively aromas of lemon zest, yellow apple and river rock lead into a palate of pear and a hint of fresh vanilla lifted by zesty acidity. 
Pairs with pan seared fish, ceviche and camembert.
