Is there a better pairing - a warm, indulgent soak and a relaxing glass of wine? We don't think so!
February is the month of love and to celebrate we are declaring our love of a great glass of wine as a perfect bath time libation.
When Viña Santa Carolina was founded in 1875, the winemaker named it after his greatest inspiration, his wife, Carolina. Santa Carolina Reserva wines have been re-designed and pay homage to Carolina. Admired in her time, Carolina brought together family, friends, and personalities. As a nation of poets, Chile knows first hand the value of romance and inspiration and this collection is a cultural expression of Carolina’s lineage as its muse - a “living inspiration.”
So what does a wine expert recommend for the best bath + wine pairings? We checked in with our friends at Santa Carolina to find out. Here's what they say!
Chardonnays from Chile are more fruity and zesty than the creamy, silky style of their California counterparts. This is because the grapes are picked earlier in the year, showcasing the fresh green flavours of the world's most popular white wine varietal: Chardonnay. Find it at the LCBO for $13.
We recommend pairing Chardonnay with your next Milk Mineral Soak, Ancient Oat Hydration, Pomelo Grove or BePure Bubble soak ✨
Chile is known for Carménère which is considered the country’s signature grape. The grape is very similar to Merlot, but don’t expect the same taste as Carménère has a distinctive flavour known for its bite and its peppery, herbaceous appeal. Because of this it pairs perfectly Mexican, Thai cuisine and all your favourite spicy dishes. Find it at the LCBO for $14.
We recommend pairing Carménère with your next Northern Sage Recovery, Boreal Fog or BeRejuvenated Bubble soak ✨
