One of the main points of me starting this blog a little over 2 years ago was to talk about my love of wine. That love has developed over the years to include great craft beer and a well mixed cocktail. However, wine is still #1 in my heart. Wine doesn’t have to be expensive or overly complex to enjoy. It just has to be well made!
Robert Mondavi Private Selection is the perfect example of wines that are meant to be enjoyed at meals, with friends and all those times in between. I know I have enjoyed my fair share (check out my Napa tour and last year’s RM Wine Tour!).
Robert Mondavi Private Selection produces Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Fume Blanc, Syrah, Zinfandel and Riesling. These wines – from light and lively to full-bodied and concentrated – have approachable bright fruit expression and exceptional balance, as well as great depth and texture. All are crafted to be enjoyed upon release.
This summer Robert Mondavi Private Selection (RMPS) is hitting the road to take you on a virtual tour of California’s Central Coast to showcase the area that sources 100% of the RMPS grapes. Throughout the rest of the month and into August RMPS will be showcasing local finds throughout the Central Coast, including restaurants, breathtaking views, and other hidden gems in the area. Think Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives! As they take a tour down the Coast they are bringing you with them via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest. Oh, and don’t forget some great food pairing match-ups on their website too!
Summer is the perfect time for a road trip, but honestly…gas is freakin’ expensive! RMPS would love to have us all along in real life for their Coastal Tour, but since we can’t all make it there they are offering one lucky A Girl & Her Mutt reader a $25 gas card to take their own RMPS Central Coast Tour inspired road trip.
To win you HAVE to answer one question in the comments…
