simple life, chardonnay

After a terrible cabernet tasting (post coming soon) my Mom + I figured we’d try something new. We choose the wine based off of the label. It’s simple, crisp, and light. It’s perfect for afternoon snacks in the backyard and sunset viewings at the harbor. Thank you Simple Life Simple Life for a perfect afternoon/evening wine! We ended up going back and purchasing 3 more bottles!
