We said “Sip”, not “Guzzle”! This delicious, apple-y Washington Chard is not meant for the pin-up girls in the wine posters, daintily posing their wine stem to pursed lips with a pinky finger pointed skyward. Red Lips, Wine Sips is an after-work stress reliever, a “kids are at the babysitter” reward, an “it’s too hot for reds” barbecue substitute. Because life comes at you fast, and we at W.O.W. urge you to slow down and take it sip by sip.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT
Enjoy Red Lips, Wine Sips Chardonnay with:
Food: Breaded pork cutlets
Strange But True: Deep-fried Twinkies
Traveling through Eastern Washington, one is struck by the unique topography. It is a dry, dusty region home to grapevines and apple orchards and not much else. There, the breeze is constantly blowing, the warm air stings the eyes and the throat quickly becomes parched, longing for some of the region's bright, elegant white wines.
Therein lies the beautiful paradox - how this sparse terrain can turn out some exquisite wine and how the grapes retain so much freshness despite the hot, arid conditions. Washington Chardonnays are perfect examples of the magic found in grapevines conquering nature’s obstacles to produce balanced wines – with ripe fruit flavors balanced by creamy textures and thirst-quenching, vital acidity.
THE FINE PRINT

WINEMAKER NOTES: We here at W.O.W. like to do as grape farmers do. We stop for lunch, open up a bottle of delicious Chardonnay, grab some crusty bread, salami and cheese, and get to work! Red Lips, Wine Sips Chardonnay has bright fruity aromas and flavors of apple, melon and peach. The palate is creamy fresh, round and textured, and Red Lips, Wine Sips finishes nice and easy.
