Do You Want Some Cheese With That Wine?

So the holidays are always a great time to get liquored up.  Booze also make great gifts for your friends, especially if you're in college!  This leads me to ask: have you ever tried fruit wine?  I never had until a few months ago, I am allergic to grapes & when I mentioned to a coworker that I wish I could have wine she told me about it!  Technically the fruit wine I like is a 'desert wine', but I've had it with dinner & while hanging with friends & think that it's delicious.  The company that makes the ones I've tried, Tomasello Winery, is based in New Jersey, but sells to stores around the country.  A major bonus: they will ship cases from their website to your home, & they even give discounts for members, which is too good to be true!  Tomasello has four different 'Tasting Room' locations in New Jersey, & one is about 20 minutes from my house.  Needless to say I need to plan a trip there ASAP.  Tomesello makes Cherry, Cranberry, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Raspberry, Blueberry, & Blue-Pom wines without grapes, but I can only have the berry ones (holla fructose intolerance).
Empty bottle of Blueberry, that makes for a pretty candle holder, a.k.a. a great excuse to drink a bottle!
I've tried the blueberry, raspberry, & blackberry flavors, they are all so tasty & go down very smoothly!  My parents & friends who can drink regular wine all like it too.  My wallet even likes Tomasello because it only costs $8.00 for a bottle, which is amazing for a poor college kid!  If you like wine, I highly recommend trying Tomasello's.

What do you think about grapeless wine?

  1. I love dessert wines. Would love to taste this brand!

  2. I've never had grapeless wine, but I love blueberries so I don't know why I wouldn't try it. I'll definitely have to add picking up a bottle to my post exams to-do list!

  3. Raspberry sounds interesting, must try that one day!
