A bottle of white, a bottle of red
Perhaps a bottle of rose instead
We’ll get a table near the street
In our old familiar place
You and I-face to face
A bottle of red, a bottle of white
It all depends on your appetite
I’ll meet you any time you want
In our Italian Restaurant.
-Scenes from An Italian Restaurant by Billy Joel
Friday afternoon and sometimes I just love what I get in the mail. I mean the bills not so much, but certain items I get to review for my blog that I receive in our mail definitely makes the bills seems a bit more tolerable (just a bit).
This Friday, I received a box that my UPS delivery man jokingly asked if I was over 21 to accept. I knew right away it was the wine, I had agreed to review.
What I didn’t know was that it was four bottles in total, including 2 Chardonnay and also 2 Red Wines from O Wines that truly made me want to sing my best rendition of Billy Joel’s Scene from An Italian Restaurant with thoughts of “A Bottle of White, A Bottle of Red..” You get the idea!
Well, I couldn’t wait to give them a try and not going to lie cracked open the Chardonnay that very evening after a long week of birthday celebrating for Emma, as well as afternoon of (you guessed it) bill paying and what I knew would be an equally long trip into NYC to visit the American Girl Store to further celebrate Emma’s 5th Birthday in style, which would probably include a few of the girls’ favorite meltdowns before all was said and done.
The chardonnay didn’t disappoint and yes later in the weekend also got to try the red wine, which also was very much enjoyed here, as well.
If you don’t believe me please keep reading to find out more now about O Wines and the two different wine blends now below.
O Wines Background

Each purchase helps send young women to college through the O Wines Opportunity for Success Scholarship program.
Since the introduction of the wines to the Pacific Northwest in 2008 followed by a nationwide launch in 2013, more than $300,000 has been raised to support 52 college scholarships.
