Hi! We are Anna, Caroline and Chelsea, and we love wine!
We have been friends since… ever! Well, at least long enough not to remember since when.
Together we gradually discovered the good and the bad about life, including love, sorrow, and of course, alcohol! We started at the bus stop, before going out, mixing up vodka and orange juice in little plastic bottles that we kept all evening in our purses, never managing to finish it all. Then we evolved to fancy (very) fruity cocktails in clubs, and to several other phases: the “I’ll have a glass of rosé” phase, the beer pint phase, and even the whisky on the rock phase (still one of our faves!).
And then we grew up: a job, serious relationships, even a child… our lives changed, and so it did our way to drink and enjoy ourselves. We lowered the quantity and increased the quality of alcoholic beverages in our glasses, and we started organizing Cheese and Wine parties, discovering that they were absolutely awesome! We felt so fancy pairing fine cheeses and wine, and we soon realised that indeed, we had no clue about how to do it!
Therefore we actually commenced buying wine guides and magazines, and offering each other tasting classes. We figured out that it is not so difficult, and that it is really fun to do it with your girlfriends! Thus this blog, to share our common passion: pairing wine with lifelong lasting girl friendship!
