I have an announcement to make. I am going back to college. Okay…that was dramatic. I’m taking a three-week wine appreciation class with my mom at the local community college (it was my Christmas gift to her!). Since I’m in total wine mode, I was excited to see that the March issue of InStyle has a lengthy story on wine and wine accessories. If you haven’t had a chance to read the mammoth March issue, here are a few key highlights.

• Tasting Bottles – I’ve been waiting to write about these for quite some time. Grgich Hills Estates and Blackbird Vineyards offer a six-pack of wine bottles so that people can taste a little sample of different vinos before buying. They also make a cute, inexpensive gift!

Wine Away – keep this little gem in your purse to rid away a red wine disaster.

Bottle Notes - a newsletter that InStyle calls this the “Daily Candy for wine”

Wineberry – I’ve been saying for years, boxed wine is becoming chic. Check out Wineberry. The cute wooden box is also eco-friendly!
