I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Brancott Estate Flight Song. I received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Well it is a few weeks into the new year, how are your resolutions going? Staying on track with all resolutions to eat better, exercise and lose weight can be tough as the excitement of New Years fades and cold winter reality sets in. In fact it is estimated that after one week 75% of people have broken their resolutions! To help Brancott EstateÂ has developed Flight Song wines that have 20% less calories than similar selections, so you can have a glass with dinner without feeling guilty about broken resolutions or blown diets.
They sent me a sample of their Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio to try out. My husband and I enjoy having a glass of wine with dinner a few times a week, so I was intrigued by the idea of wine that would fit into my plan to lose weight. But the big question is how does it taste – because if it doesn’t taste great there isn’t much point in spending any calories on it!
This weekend we had a rare night to ourselves, since my girls are off at college and my son was camping with his Scout troop. A night to ourselves is the perfect time to have a little bit of wine. So we opened up the Sauvignon Blanc to pair with a romantic meal of seafood stew, and put the wine to a taste test. It was excellent, and very dry with a nice fruity taste. If I hadn’t known it had fewer calories I would have never guessed based on the taste.
We also tried theÂ Pinot Grigio on a different night, and were similarly impressed. Â It was a rich full bodied wine, with a crisp refreshing taste. Â It went perfectly with a home cooked roast chicken, and enhanced our meal.
Brancott Estate has a long history of innovation in wine making, since they were the first to plant and create the worldâ€™s first Marlborough SauvignonÂ Blanc wineâ€”a style that has since changed the course of our countryâ€™s wine industry. Â Their innovation in developing lower calorie wines will undoubtedly be similarly influential.
So if you are looking for a way to indulge without sabotaging your resolutionsÂ let Flight Song help with 20% less calories. Â What would you like to have 20% more or less of 2015 to improve your life?
