Time for Wine

Posted on

Today is National No Housework Day. No trash, no dishes, no making beds or washing laundry, AND no guilt! Give it a rest!

A perfect way to treat yourself on this guilt free holiday is to sit down with a glass of dessert wine after dinner. They are the perfect way to complete your meal. This is unlike the more acidic, lighter wines enjoyed during a meal. Acidic wines open the palate, sweet wines close it.

For tips on choosing a dessert wine visit She Knows Food and Recipes.
