Since I'm no longer pregnant, I'm finally able to drink some wine! Except no one really tells you while longing for that glass of wine for 9 long months, that you can only drink a glass or two while nursing. Really that's okay because you become a total lightweight anyway, however, I came across a problem. I went to my favorite local wine store to celebrate my reunion with wine, bought an old favorite and had my first glass. It was delicious, but when I was ready for another glass a few nights later, the bottle had already gone off. Since my husband isn't a big wine drinker I was never able to finish a bottle before it started to expire. It felt like such a waste to keep opening bottles. I tried buying the smaller half bottles sold at the wine store, but they were the same price as the large ones. All I wanted was nice wine, in small portions that I could have on a random night, without costing an arm and a leg. Enter Sofia Minis from Francis Ford Coppola's winery. These little cans of champagne have been a game changer. After Evie is asleep, I now can sit on the couch, turn on the Bacherlorette with some pizza and a can of champagne. (Hey, I never said it was a classy affair!) All without spending a ton or wasting any wine (the real tragedy here).
Not only are they great for nights when you only want just a glass of champagne, but they are perfect for taking to the park, beach, or picnic. You can easily turn camping into glamping with a pop of the can. They even come with their own adorable straws, which just beg you to sneak it into a funny rom-com with your girlfriends, like Trainwreck. My friend Ashley, even brought one to my hospital room to celebrate the birth of Evie! Since I was still recovering from a c-section I didn't partake, but it was fun that the whole hosptial room instantly turned into a mini party and celebration. I remember grinning ear to ear while holding Evie watching everyone clink their cans.
The cans come in a pretty pink color and cute box. The packaging is delightful making them perfect to give away as favors at a party or have out in a tub of ice. And while most single serve wines taste pretty cheap, this champagne is delicious with notes of pear, melon and honeysuckle.
Now all I need is Francis Ford Coppola to make single serve red wine in a can!
