I didn’t wake up to my alarm last Friday. I thought it was my alarm as I swam my arms under the pillows, trying to find my phone that wouldn’t stop buzzing. Instead it was texts from concerned friends. I had no idea what they were talking about, and I literally thought to myself, "Who died?!” By now, we all know that it was Anthony Bourdain.

It was a hard day. It’s still hard. Like so many others across all industries and continents, Bourdain was one of my greatest heroes. He made me believe that I could pursue a life and career in wine that could benefit the community, consumers, and the world, while still being true to myself.

Cold Brew & Wine Had A Beverage Baby & Here's What It Tastes Like

  Cold Brew & Wine Had A Beverage Baby & Here's What It Tastes Like Last month, Apothic Wine announced it was getting in on the coolest trend in coffee — yes, you read that correctly. If the idea of mixing two drinks that serve essentially opposite purposes gives you pause, you're certainly not alone. We had some reservations about Apothic Brew, too. While we enjoy drinking a nice glass of red wine to unwind at the end of a long day and can't get enough cold brew during summer, that doesn't necessarily mean the two beverages will taste good when put together. Our skepticism, however, was completely washed away once we took our very first sips.

It was hard for another reason too. The texts from friends were followed by messages from strangers, all asking the same deeply concerning question. It’s one of the most popular questions I've gotten since the 2016 election from readers and publications alike: “What wine should you drink when you’re sad?”

My answer is always the same: None.

No one likes this response. It’s not nearly as quirky or comical as they want from a woman whose whole life seems to be drinking wine and having fun (I promise you, there’s a lot more to it than that). But it’s the response that deserves to be heard and never is. The only reason I seem like I’m always drinking wine and having fun is because one of the few rules I live by is that I never, ever drink when I am sad.

Admittedly sometimes I’ll be drinking and then I get sad, but that’s because alcohol is a depressant: It’s only going to make you feel sadder. And while I am all for a good cathartic cry, you shouldn’t do it with alcohol. You should do it with a therapist, loved ones, or your favorite Pixar movie.

Not only is alcohol a depressant, but pouring a drink to escape emotion is a bad habit, one that has been glamorized by everyone from Charles Bukowski to the cast of Sex & the City to today’s top 40 music. It's a habit that's so easy to fall into and so hard to get out of. I’ve watched alcoholism destroy people I love. It always starts as a drink to deal with something until it becomes drinking to deal with everything.

Wine is joyful. It is one of the most joyful things on this Earth. It’s like food and music and sex and art, incredible delights that we can indulge and devour and find immeasurable pleasure in. But if you drink wine because you’re sad, you start to associate it with those feelings. It strips wine of its ability to take you to places you’ve never been, to remind you of memories you love, or to be present in the place and memories you are creating as you drink the wine right then.That’s why we love wine, right? Because it is transportive and delicious and it brings people together. And it should always be associated with these things.

Non-Alcoholic Rosé Is Here So Even More People Can #RoséAllDay

  Non-Alcoholic Rosé Is Here So Even More People Can #RoséAllDay Recently, however, we were surprised by a new kind of rosé drink. If it just crossed your mind that the most fun thing about rosé is its alcohol content and therefore a non-alcoholic rosé is pointless, we get where you're coming from. But, let's not forget that, for better or for worse, the trend has been adapted into many different foods that don't contain alcohol. Over the past several years, we've seen rosé doughnuts, rosé chocolate, rosé jelly, and more, and none of those items have the ability to get you drunk. They were appealing for other reasons.

So please don’t drink wine when you’re sad. Drink because you’re happy. Drink because you’re in love—with someone, or many, or the world, or the city, or the meal, or yourself, or art, or that cute dog that walked by and licked your knee. Drink wine because it’s a beautiful day or because you’re stoked on your new project or you’re just feeling good. Drink to celebrate life, not to deal with loss.

How to Chill Boxed Wine Down Properly .
<p>If you’ve bought a big box for a party, you have to plan accordingly.</p>So you’ve bought a 3-liter box of wine. Now what? Put it in the fridge, of course. But that’s not the end of the story. A typical bottle of wine is 75 ml, so a 3-liter box contains four bottles worth.
