Dive Into Fall With Oysters And Ménage à Trois Gold

We’re diving into our name and the sea with our Oysters and Ménage à Trois Gold pairing. Oysters are the very essence of the sea. With their crisp and saline juice, it’s an experience for your senses like no other. So it’s no surprise French women indulge in a plate of oysters; they’re high in nutritional value and low in calories.

Yet, the indulgence of oysters doesn’t stop at the plate – the shells can be found in old French vineyard traditions. After a glorious nighttime gathering, vineyard farmers would discard the shells throughout the vineyard. We suppose you can say they make a full circle from the sea to the plate to the glass.

Let’s celebrate tradition and dabble in the deliciousness of our oyster recipe and a glass of Ménage à Trois Gold.

What You’ll Need (recipe for 12 oysters):
- Depending on your party size, plan on guests having 3-4 oysters each.
- 12 oysters
- 2 Lemons cut into wedges
- Ice
- 1 French baguette

How to Make:
1. Once the oyster has been opened, discard the top shell.
2. Lay ice down on your serving tray and place the oysters on top.
3. Depending on your preference, squeeze lemons over the oysters.
4. Slice the French baguette and toast to your preference in the oven.
5. Serve and enjoy!

Add Your Own Personal Style to Your Next Soiree with DIY Wine Bottle Centerpieces

Sometimes the simplest decorations are a savvy way to express your inner artist and make the greatest impression. These DIY Wine Bottle Centerpieces will wow your guests with their simplistic rustic beauty. They utilize vibrant flowers, espresso-stained wood, and your used Ménage à Trois bottles to add elegant charm to your table, while remaining versatile enough to be used for many events. Consider adding some fairy lights for a romantic evening twinkle, or other bright colored flowers for a cheery brunch.  

Simple Wood Box:
This box project can be changed to fit your needs with some simple adjustments. For our table, we chose to make a box that is 2 ft. long x 4 in. wide x 4 in. high. We will be using these dimensions for our instructions below. If you choose to make yours a different size, please adjust accordingly.
With the right planning, you can save time and money by using one long piece of wood and cutting it down to make your smaller pieces. You may have pieces lying around the house and that is fine as well.

What You Need:
- 1 - 1 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. piece of wood (we chose Poplar) 
- Measuring tape, pencil, straight edge
- Wood glue
- Clamps (the more the merrier)
- Paint or wood stain (we used a gray wood stain)
- Damp cloth to wipe off excess glue

How to make your simple wood box: (We strongly recommend getting all of your wood pre-cut by a professional at the store where you purchase the wood. It is a good idea to share the below info with your pro woodcutter so they know what you'll be using the wood for. Again, you'll need 1 - 1 in. x 4 in. x 8 ft. piece of wood (we chose Poplar). 

1. Lay the wood flat and measure your first cut at 2 ft., mark it with the pencil on two points so you can use the ruler and pencil to make a straight line to guide your first cut. With your saw, cut along the line so you will have your first 2 ft. piece of wood. Remember – measure twice, cut once.
2. Mark and cut two more 2 ft. pieces. You will have one 2 ft. piece left which we’ll be cutting up to make the ends of the box.
3. With the leftover 2 ft. section, measure and mark at 3.25 in. intervals, cut and repeat once more so you have two 1 in. x 4 in. x 3.25 in. pieces and then you are done cutting.
4. Lay one of the 2 ft. sections down flat, apply a bead of wood glue along one of the long sides and then align and place one of the other 2 ft. sections up to the other to form an L shape. You will want to be sure it’s on the side of the piece laying down and not sitting on top, think wide L not a short L. Clamp the two boards together, wipe off excess glue and allow the glue to start to set.
5. Once the glue has had time to set a little, repeat step 5 for the other side so you end up with a wide U shape.
6. Allow the glue to set a good amount on both sides because these next steps will apply pressure to the glued areas and may cause the pieces to separate. Take one of the small pieces and lay glue along both sides and one side you choose to be the bottom. Squeeze that piece in to one of the ends, clamp and wipe off excess glue. It may be a tight fit.
7. Repeat for the other side when the glue has settled and allow for all the glue to set completely.
8. Once the glue is dry, paint or stain the wood or leave it natural.
9. Adorn as you like. We chose to paint some corner brackets and screw them onto the corners to add some style, and a little extra stability. 

Admire the creativity of your craftsmanship with a glass of favorite Ménage à Trois wine. You’ve earned it.

PROVOCATIVE WINE BRAND LAUNCHES MÉNAGE À TROIS DECADENCE - Indulgent New Cabernet Sauvignon Joins Bold Brand’s Winning Portfolio

ST. HELENA, Calif., September 6, 2017 – Ménage à Trois — the wine brand widely credited with defining the premium Red Blend category — has launched a new Cabernet Sauvignon, Decadence ($14 SRP). An annual $2- billion-dollar category, Cabernet Sauvignon is the no. 1 red varietal in the United States*.
Maintaining momentum following three consecutive no. 1 new wine item releases over
the past three years**, Ménage à Trois aims to bring to Cabernet Sauvignon what the powerhouse brand brought to Chardonnay with Gold and to Red Blends with Midnight and Silk.

“Ménage à Trois Decadence promises to be the portfolio’s most lavish, over-the-top Cabernet Sauvignon yet, and it delivers.” said Mark Dunlea, senior marketing director for Ménage à Trois wines. “Luxurious, rich and seductive, the seventeenth addition to the Ménage à Trois family aims to please.” Bold and boundless as the name suggests, full- bodied Ménage à Trois Decadence boasts uniquely rich, red berry flavors and aromas with a soft, round mouthfeel and a smooth, chocolatey finish.

Ménage à Trois was born from boldly curious founders who famously blended three distinctively different grapes into one wine in 1996. Ménage à Trois’ eye for innovation ensues today, with the iconic blend brand’s deliciously different Decadence release. Decadence works hard to deliver on the rich, sensorial experience expected from largest- dollar-growth varietal Cabernet Sauvignon***. Made with grapes sourced from California’s finest growing regions, Decadence is sure to steal the show and leave indulgence-seekers wanting...more.

About Ménage à Trois:
The Ménage à Trois portfolio comprises 17 offerings, including five wine blends, six red wines and six white wines. Ménage à Trois originated in 1996 with one wine — a blend of three red varietals — created by two psychiatrists at Folie à Deux Winery in Saint Helena, CA. Ménage à Trois wines are wholly owned and operated by Trinchero Family Estates, family-owned Napa Valley vintners since 1948. Please visit www.MenageaTroiswines.com to learn more.

Pull Out Your Sweaters and Ménage à Trois California Red, for Fall Is Here

As September begins to fade into October, the temperatures drop and the leaves change their hues to bright golds and reds. Sweaters are dug out of dusty boxes, where they were tucked away and forgotten until now. They make their grand entrance into your wardrobe and you’re instantly reminded of why you love them. Each sweater has its own story known only to you.

The colors of fall aren’t just for sweaters. They make their way into our manicures, our lipsticks, and our wine. Ménage à Trois California Red will complement your fall style the next time you are out with friends or home with family. Perhaps you would rather wrap yourself in a cozy sweater, pour yourself a glass of California Red, and crack open a good book. 

Wherever your sweaters take you and no matter what their story may be, add in a glass of Ménage à Trois California Red for a divine combination.

Express Yourself With Ménage à Trois

Unspoken expressions.

Shakespeare said the eyes are the windows to our souls. They express how we feel, reveal if we’re in love, or happy, or surprised, or turned on — and they do so without spoken language.

Just as our eyes express so much about us, so does the kind of Ménage à Trois wine we love and love to share.

As an example, if you flourish in the art of our Ménage à Trois California Red, you’re expressing your desire to be fluid in the art of flirtatious banter, which arises the moment you uncork the bottle and breathe in its bold blackberry and raspberry aromas, and taste the opulent, sassy red fruits as they mingle with rich, splendiferous, full-bodied flavors and firm tannins. Yes, our California Red expresses your lust for life and bold, rapturous Zinfandel, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

If on another evening you wish to express yourself with the delicious riches of Ménage à Trois Gold, it’s obvious that you love to be spoiled and love to spoil those you love — with a wealth of ripe tropical fruit flavors, grand French vanilla, and hints of deluxe sweet spice. This is when Gold becomes you.

Perhaps you’re feeling a little mischievous. You express yourself with Ménage à Trois Rosé, a blend that is sure to make you blush. The exotic flavors and smooth finish pair perfectly with your adventurous spirit. You like to be tantalized and know that the exhilarating flavors of strawberries, lychee nuts, and flowers are the only mix that will give you the rush you desire. Show your true colors with Rosé.

However you choose to express yourself, take Ménage à Trois along for the ride.
