We love good food and pairing it with great wine (especially after the kids are in bed). We're teaming up with the CleverGirls Collective to start a little wine club. We'll feature three wines each post--selected by the CGC. Maybe it'll inspire you to try something new. The wine is great, the discounts are amazing, and even though shipping tends to be a little steep, if anyone orders 3 or more bottles, shipping is free. That's basically like getting 20% off the already discounted price (Yay!).
The wine offerings will change approximately every two weeks. The next assortment of wines will be offered on July 17. Cheers!

Momtrends was not paid for this post. I will get a % of the sales generated from this site. And we firmly believe most moms deserve a good glass of wine after a hard day of chasing the kids around.
