Girlfriend Celebrations - Because Girlfriends Make Life Better

Wine Not?

Don’t you love it when you meet someone who is so enthusiastic about what they do, that it’s contagious? That’s the feeling we had the other day when we met Sue and Kathy from Prairie and Vine, an adorable wine shop and tasting room in Chicago’s western suburbs. It reminded us to tell you that now is a GREAT time of year to have a Wine Among Friends party. Tina hosted one of these two years ago and it was a fabulous success. Click the link for all the details! But first read on:  

What is so great about Prairie and Vine is that you can have your girls night there and they do all the work for you! No setup, no cleanup, and the wine experts are like some of your favorite girlfriends. They are having so much fun with wine, and are so enthusiastic about girlfriends, that we are definitely scheduling a girls night there soon. (They also feature some amazing Illinois wines–yes, Illinois–you will be a believer after sampling them.) And, they turned us on to this chocolate dessert wine—it is really, really delicious—if you like after-dinner drinks you’ll love this! (We both bought some! Prairie and Vine had some in stock yesterday, but it’s a hot item.) If you are visiting Chicago on business or pleasure anytime soon–put this shop on your agenda. If you can’t get there, but still want to host your own Wine Among Friends party, check out their online shop for wine-related gifts and accessories: It’s called OWineNot.

Another great, girly resource for learning about wine is Alpana Pours: About Being a Woman, Loving Wine, and Having Great Relationships by Chicago’s own Alpana Singh. It’s a fun read and takes the mystery out of wine selection, pairing and serving. 

Wine appreciation is something girlfriends can do together year after year. It’s fun, educational, and there’s always something new to try. Find some time to enjoy a glass of wine with a girlfriend (or several) this fall!
