A wine love here myself, I am always keeping an out for unique wine gift ideas. Although giving a bottle of wine as a gift is always welcome but it would even be more amazing if the bottle was personalized!

Anything personalized comes from the heart because you took a moment to spend sometime to personalize the gift fit the person/couple special moment or occasion. Personalized items can be either etched or labeled.

Etched Wines offers a variety of personailized wine options. You can shop by occasion, from birthday, wedding, graduation, new home, new baby, birthday, anniversary, etc.

Etched Wine also offers personalized candles, stemware, mugs, oil or vinegar.

They even take corporate orders, as low as $25 a bottle includes wine plus etching. All other wines and champagnes, just wine + $15 Free set up + low minimums plus super fast turnarounds. Please note this is what appears on their website today, and is subject to change.

Personalized etched or labeled wine, mug, stemware, or oil/vinegar bottles are such an a great gift for that one person in your life who has everything!

I recieved a lot of compliments on my tan floppy hat while on our mini vacation to the South Padre Island.

Love this hat! The hat travels well. No need to worry about losing its shape when you place it into your suitcase. I am able to fold it into my suitcase and the hat will keep its shape when you are ready to wear it.

The wide brim provides great shade.

I love floppy hats, I even have a red one specifically for wine festivals. But of course the tan has also attend a festival.

I will be honest, I bought both hats from vendors at a craft booth. But I found a floppy hat very similar hat with great reviews on Amazon and offer in a variety of colors.

I hope you can find the perfect color floppy hat for those special occasion(s) or just to have wear while having fun in the sun.

2020 Wine Goals – Colorado Wine Festivals

By no means do I proclaim myself as a wine connoisseur nor do I fit the definition of one.

1. A person with expert knowledge or training, especially in the fine arts. 2. A person of informed and discriminating taste: a connoisseur of fine wines

The definition of a wine connoisseur based on The Free Dictionary


When searching for a definition which would fit wine style, I believe the word would be Bon Vivant.

A person who enjoys a sociable lifestyle and good food and drink The Free Dictionary

The definition of a social wine drink, who loves good company and food which I believe best describes me is Bon Vivant

I am about the wine experience, socializing and eating good food! Especially cheese, crackers, and chocolate!

Goal #1 – More Wine Crafts

That’s right, more wine crafts! Wine charms, wine bottle upcycle, wine glass etching, etc.

Goal #2 More Wine Festivals

A few of my favorite Colorado Wine Festivals

  • Manitou Springs Colorado Wine Festival – Date set for June 6th, 2020
  • Craft Beer and Wine Festival – I haven’t seen a 2020 date set. Looking at past dates they tend to have their festival in September, recommend to check back on their website. I highly recommend the VIP tickets. The event proceeds go towards the Marc Jr Foundation (click here to learn about their mission)
  • The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey – Harvest Fest – Date set for the weekend of September 26th – Go early and find a spot on the lawn for some good music and bring a picnic, cheese, and enjoy the variety of Holy Cross Abbey wines you can taste or purchase.

Wine festivals on my 2020 list I would like to attend

Goal #3 Solve How to Drink More Wine and Maintain weight

Who are you kidding – Let’s move on!

My only advice is stick to Processco or low carb champagnes. I also reference the Keto Wine: The Ultimate Guide to the Best Low Carb Wines even though I am not Keto but for me it’s provides a comprehensive low carb wine guide.

Goal #4 Ship Two Friends Wine

I received my first shipment last month from a dear friend. It was exciting to see what came in and the selection they chose! A reminder, someone 21 years of age with an ID must be home to sign for the delivery. So plan accordingly with your friend or have the package delivered to the delivery service (FedEx, UPS) pick-up location.
