After an incredible weekend amongst our nations most brilliant wine writers at the “Wine Bloggers Conference” in Portland, Oregon, I’d have to say one of the most memorable moments of my adventure was “Red: Speed Dating.” No, there was not a room filled with an array of awkward “ginger” singles, but instead 35 red wine producers from around the globe ready to be criticized in 50 minutes with over 100 fellow wine bloggers. All while we’re simultaneously “live blogging” notes on twitter (it was like blasting an ex or proclaiming your undying love in under 140 characters). It was very intense to say the least, especially when you’re sharing, spitting and swallowing in a room full of strangers (yes, I just went there, but what do you expect, it’s wine tasting 101, just ask the professionals). By the end of this wonderful nightmare there was a sea of unattractive purple teeth that would have scared away even the most desperate ‘available and looking’ hopefuls. Luckily I brought my A-game with one of the most genius wine accessory essentials, Wine Wipes by Borracha.
I never again want to hear you don’t drink red wine for obsessing over your pearly whites. Whether you’re a seasoned drinker or not, these stain removing and teeth protecting wipes only require a few quick swipes until the stains are gone, and the color within your glass no longer matters. Goodbye “ginger” mouth, hello bright smile! These Wine Wipes welcome a bit of red liquid with a little more ‘Class & Swagger,’ and you’re friends no longer have an excuse to rule out some of the most exuberant, full-bodied varietals. So when it comes to the most basic selection of choosing a wine, just remember that reds do it better… red wines that is…
