Wine Wednesdays didn’t start for no reason.
In fact, it doesn’t even have to be a Wednesday to round up the girls for a cozy night in filled with dishing drama, having heart-to-hearts or gushing gossip.
And if you don’t have enough drama of your own, you can always move on to the lives of others, like the real-life scandals of the stars of The Bachelor Canada, and the main man on the show, Chris Leroux, which airs Wednesday nights (how fitting).
The retired major league baseball pitcher started out with 20 ladies vying for his heart and now, as he’s getting to know each of them better, he’s making some painful cuts. As the group gets smaller, the drama and emotion are getting bigger.
And we all know that usually both go hand-in-hand with one thing… wine.
Two Oceans wine is a perfect accompaniment, whether your perfect night in with the ladies has called for tears or just plain girl talk and reality TV gabbing.
Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot/Two Oceans
You can start off your evening with a chilled glass of Two Oceans Sauvignon Blanc to ease you into your favourite show and then follow it up with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot when things intensify and you need something bold.
To make it even better, this is the official wine of The Bachelor Canada. And you can now buy it in red and white packs of two, or mixed packs. They’re ideal for a night in with options that will suit everyone’s tastes… white, red … or how about some sangria?
And in case you really know your wine, here is the lowdown on two popular varietals.
Two Oceans’ 2016 Sauvignon Blanc is the kind of wine you’ll want in your hand for taking in the action of a show like The Bachelor Canada, or your go-to girls rom-com 10 Things I Hate About You. This fresh and vivacious vino was made to be a sipping wine and it has an elegant, crisp acidity that offers a bounty of passion fruit, green apple, and sweet melon flavours. Think tropical fruit with an abundance of passion fruit and sweet lemon aromas. You can serve it with any kind of fish, pasta, or poultry dish and your guests will be seriously happy.
Two Oceans is made in Western Cape, South Africa where two opposing oceans meet
– the Atlantic (cold) and the Indian Ocean (warm). The result for their bright red Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot is a full-bodied and sweet berry-flavoured wine that leaves you feeling warm on the inside. It finishes off with a touch of spice that’s as on point as wine can get. Invite the girls over, serve up some appies like roasted lamb popsicles or carpaccio, follow up with a delicious pasta dish, and drink yourselves merry.
You’ll find Two Oceans in four varietals in most provinces, and a Moscato (white wine), too.
The new duo gift pack can be purchased in select markets featuring Two Oceans Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. So keep your eyes peeled and start planning your girls night in!
