Valentine's Day for Singles

Posted by Alexander Strubbe on January 26, 2017

1) Host a Single's Awareness Day Party 

Why limit yourself to just one Valentine? Surround yourself with all the people you love and celebrate the day together. A personalized Viva de los Andes Cabernet can act as both a refreshment and table top decoration for your singles Valentine's Day party. 



2) Treat Yourself to Dinner

Go out and enjoy a hearty dinner at your favorite restaurant. Whether you rather have a table for one or a table of seven, go out and enjoy the town while giving yourself the night off and let someone else take care of the dishes! 

3) Relaxing Spa Day at Home 

Nothing says “I love you” like pampering yourself with a spa day at home. Enjoy a great bottle of Mumm Napa, a face mask and your best friend. Fun fact: Sparkling wine pairs well with cucumbers! 

4) Have a Movie Night at Home 

Throw on those comfy clothes, kick back and relax at home with your favorite movie. Of course, a bottle of Storypoint Cabernet is needed because it is the perfect pair to a good salty movie snack, like popcorn.

5) Be Your Own Valentine 

Skip that awkward moment when you open a dissapointing gift from someone and reward yourself with that wish list item you have been eyeing for the past few weeks. The best Valentine's Day gift, ever.

6) Netflix and Chill? Try Yoga and Wine

If you are the active type, then treat yourself to a Valentine's Day workout. Participate in your favorite active hobby...then reward yourself afterwards with a bottle of sparkling Rosé....or even during. Namaste.

How Working Out Gets You Sparkling Wine

Posted by Michael Cousins on November 7, 2016

When people think of good activities that pair well with wine, what first comes to mind is: a happy hour with friends, listening to live music outdoors or even an intimate night alone with their significant other. We decided to try and add one more activity to that list: spinning. Spin class has become the newest workout craze that has everyone dancing on those stationary bikes, even celebrities like Ariana Grande doing it on stage during award shows!

We partnered up with DEFINE Body & Mind, a high-end fitness studio, and hosted two "Ride For Wine" events taught by our marketing lead, Alex Strubbe - a part-time spin instructor. Participants in the event endured a 45 minute spin class then quenched their thirst with glasses of Conde Laurel Cava Brut Sparkling Wine engraved with DEFINE's logo.
