This was my first New York Winter and let me tell you…. it was brutal. I felt like I was never going to leave my apartment because it was just TOO COLD. But finally, the days are getting longer, the city is coming alive again, and the temperature is perfect to start having outdoor dinners with friends. 

There’s nothing I love more than hosting and spending time with good friends. Add dinner + wine to the mix and you have the perfect evening. 

But finding the perfect wine to suit everyone’s diverse tastes can be daunting at times. I recently discovered Barossa Valley Estate and my search for the perfect wine was over. BVE is a specialist red wine maker from the heart of the Barossa Valley, a small, beautiful place tucked on the southern edge of the Australia. They pride themselves on expertise, meticulous attention to detail and not being bound by convention.

I’ve completely fallen in love with the distinctive, vibrant style of their Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers a fresh burst of blackcurrant, scented black plum with subtle mint and rich dark chocolate notes. It’s fruit-forward style means it can be enjoyed on its own, but pairs equally well with food. Anytime I’ve brought this to a dinner, everyone loves it! 

Being in the fashion industry, I’ve learned that style is the defining characteristics of how you look, what you say, and what you do. Barossa Valley Estate’s wines are created to be an expression of who they are and where they come from. They are expressive, vibrant and elegant.

At your next dinner party or night at home, look for Barossa Valley Estate wine at selected liquor retailers nationwide, or online via Drizly!
