Middle Sister Wine

THE GIRLS.... Which one are you??? I'm Rebel Red!


Have you ever dated brothers? Worn leather pants to a wedding? Paired white wine with red meat? Then you just might be a mischief maker. You keep us up after bedtime on a school night. You change your hair color like most people change their socks. You make lives more complicated, but less boring. You'll be in the stories we tell our grandchildren. You love trouble. And we love you. Some girls are born beautiful. Some girls are born rich. And some girls are born smart. The smart girls grow up and use their brains to make money to buy great clothes and travel abroad and throw dinner parties…where they serve chardonnay that they didn't spend a fortune on…in wine glasses brought home from their last trip to Paris. Some girls are born smart. And we think they're the luckiest girls of all.

Did you know that birth order is commonly believed to have a profound and lasting effect on psychological development? And that the middle sister has a greater chance of having a special wine named just for her? A sassy blend of our three favorite red varieties perfect for sipping before, during and after our favorite family meals. Some people are just born lucky. Now give me back my blouse. You may have fewer photos in the family album, but who knew someday you’d have your very own wine. So how about sharing it with the rest of us? This spunky blend of our three favorite white varieties is perfect for sipping before, during and after our favorite family meals. Sure, you’re wicked but Mom always did like you best. Now we understand.

Now we understand.


Don't hate me because I'm beautiful. Or because I graduated top of my class. Being almost perfect is a terrible burden to bear. So I must confess, I do have one or two vices. Wine, cheese, cheeseburgers, vampire novels, pink outfits and serial flirting…is that more than one or two? I hope my secrets are safe with you. I have an image to protect. Let me buy you a glass of wine.




 
The Age of Aquarius has come and gone, but some things never go out of style. Like flowers, peace and a nice glass of Merlot. Let's take a moment to toast the sisters who march on to the beat of a different drummer. Nobody stays forever young. But you will always be forever cool. And for that, we salute you. Sip on!



Do you know me? I’m the one in the front row. The one with the big personality, giant sunglasses, large bodyguards. I even have a wine named after me. Brilliant! A stunning Pinot Grigio, in perfect taste for any social event, from fashion shows to fundraisers…or on that rare occasion we’re dining in. Admit it, Middle Sister. We so do love the attention. See you in the gossip columns! The Age of Aquarius has come and gone, but some things never go out of style. Like flowers, peace and a nice glass of Merlot. Let's take a moment to toast the sisters who march on to the beat of a different drummer. Nobody stays forever young. But you will always be forever cool. And for that, we salute you. Sip on!






Want to know what it's like when everyday's a day at the beach? Just ask a Surfer Chick. Her legs are tan. She smells like coconuts. She can balance a surfboard on a beach cruiser and swim with the dolphins. She wears a wet suit, not a business suit. She'll stay up late and get up early for dawn patrol the next morning. She likes seafood, sunsets, SPF and Sauvignon Blanc. Not necessarily in that order. She's more than a sister. She's a state of mind.

Another Christmas without my Mustang?


I wondered around the streets endlessly yesterday and just could not find the present I asked Santa for??? I am beginning to believe there is no Santa Claus ;-(
