Sawmill Creek Wines: Savour Life's Simplest Pleasures

One way to unwind is have a sip of wine. That's what I need lately. I was heading back home from errands and decided to stop at BC Liquor Stores on the way and remembered to pick up some wine. I went in to find a wide variety of Sawmill Creek and I think they all pair nicely with any meal. After choosing the White Zinfandel and Chardonnay, I went to the checkout.

Always my favorite Sawmill Creek Wines are the White Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Merlot. I didn't pick Merlot this time since I already have red wine at home. I have yet to try other ones that I haven't tried in a while.

I was having dinner with my family at my parent's place.  I surprised the family with a big bottle of Sawmill Creek Chardonnay that I brought over. We all shared a glass and enjoyed it with dad's homecooked meals. It brought up a conversation where we discussed about different types of wine and which one we liked most.

CHARDONNAY - Tasting note: tropical fruit notes, subtle oak, and crisp finish. It is great paired with poultry (we eat that a lot), seafood, veal, pork, cream based dishes, or simply on its own.

MERLOT - Tasting note: black currant, soft oak, smooth, medium bodied. It is great paired with beef, lamb, grilled salmon (yumm), pizza, or simply on its own.

If you are in need of a re-aquaintance with the art of unwinding, here are a few simple ways to start:
  • Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to reflect on the day's accomplishments (big or small) and treat yourself to a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • At the end of the week, challenge yourself to carve out the time and space to unwind. Pour yourself a hot bath, let yourself sink in and enjoy a glass of Sawmill Creek.
  • Invite your friends over and enjoy Simple Sipping as you create a bucket list. Then commit each of your friends to crossing one off by the end of the year. Big or small - they all count.
  • Savour a moment of gratitude and share it. Enjoy some Simple Sipping while you send a simple, unexpected note of gratitude to 5 people.

Take a break from the daily rigours of life. Sawmill Creek's variety of easy-drinking and approachable wines makes your experience as smooth as the wine itself. Savour life's simplest pleasures!
