When I received an invitation from Seven Daughters to sample their wines, the first thing I did was to check their Web site.
Let me tell you that they got my attention right away. The reason is that Seven Daughters target women, a rare move in the wine industry.
Instead of boring us with wine jargon, they emphasis on what, when or where I can drink their wines. I like their concept.
They made wine fun and exciting by suggesting party themes with my girlfriends. After all, women have always get together to talk, share and laugh. Click Girls’ Night In on Seven Daughters‘ Web site to download themes for your next girls’ night in.
The brand is called Seven Daughters because seven California grape varietals compose each wine.
French Colombard, Chardonnay, Riesling, Symphony, Orange Muscat, Gewürztraminer and Sauvignon Blanc are the main ingredients of the Seven Daughters White Winemaker’s.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Carignane and Sangiovese fashion the red wine.
I did not follow the marketing premises as I wanted the advice of a man. So I shared both bottles with my husband. I wanted to know how their wines pair with food. We drank the white with a Thai Shrimp and egg noodles dish I often make. The white wine impresses me.
We were as pleased by the red. I do not recall the meat we ate with it. I did try it with cheese before the meal. I preferred the pairing with my meat dish. The Seven Daughters Red Winemaker’s Blend is more complex than it appears; which is a good thing.
From the critics I read on the Web, most people enjoy the white more than the red. Since great whites at an affordable price are harder to find than reds, the Seven Daughters White Winemaker’s Blend is a name to remember. Too bad that I cannot buy the brand in Quebec.
The bottom line is that Seven Daughters produces easy to drink wines that will please the novices while still be appreciated by the connoisseurs.
