Friendsgiving Cozy Soup Swap

One thing is certain about the holidays: As you edge closer to eminent family quality time, you know you’re going to miss the fictive family you’ve created for yourself. They’re your rock, day in and day out, so it’s only natural that you’d want to spend a little special time with them over the holiday. You might even contemplate hosting a Friendsgiving. You could absolutely invest a couple days in prepping and cooking a full thanksgiving to share with a couple close friends, but if you’re realistic, you know that’s a lot of effort, on top of everything you’re trying to wrap up at work. Plus, you’ll probably be doing a bit of cooking with your relatives, and there’s no need to burn out early.

Our suggestion is to share a few responsibilities with your friends, so that everyone can enjoy some good together time before everybody retreats to their home base. What better way to do that and embrace the fine, fall weather than to host a Cozy Soup Swap Friendsgiving? 

Set the mood by grabbing a couple bottles of your favorite Ménage a Trois wines: Midnight, Silk, Pinot Noir, and maybe even give our new Gold a try. Next, throw out a table runner, arrange a few candles, and add any holiday flair you have. We suggest picking up a nice bouquet of seasonal flowers, or anything with a lot of dark oranges, deep reds and bright yellows. You’ll also need bowls, but we’re not telling you to get too fancy. Mix and match all you like. 

Finally, and most importantly, coordinate with your guests to ensure no one is bringing the same type of soup. You know your friends. If one isn’t confident in the kitchen, let them bring the French Onion. If one has serious cooking chops, let them bring a more complex Turkey Tortilla soup. 

Once everyone arrives, you can taste your way through each variety of soup while enjoying the kind of warmth you can only get from good wine and lovely company.

Enjoy your Ménage à Trois Outdoors 

Nature Lovers Unite 
Just because the temperatures are dropping doesn’t mean you can’t experience the pleasures of nature by taking a few of your favorite activities outdoors. After all, the crisp fall weather makes a great excuse for cuddling up and getting a little closer. Happy hours, festive picnics and seasonal celebrations are all the more thrilling when hosted beyond the house. So grab a jacket, build a bonfire and get ready to do it outside with these playful ideas.

Hot-and-Cold Happy Hour
Some like it hot, others like it cold. This happy hour falls somewhere in between! Take everyone’s favorite time of day outdoors by lighting a fire in the fire pit and cozying up to your closest friends. Serve a variety of Ménage à Trois wines to really heat things up with tantalizing flavors and irresistible aromas.

Pre-Thanksgiving Picnic
Eat your heart out, Summer! Autumn picnics are just as perfect. Pick a sunny day to set up at your local park, and serve hot foods kept warm in insulated coolers and thermoses. Bring a pile of blankets to keep guests toasty if the chill gets too intense.

Outdoor Dessert
Chewy, chocolatey, melt-in-your-mouth goodness: There’s nothing like piping-hot s’mores toasted over an open fire. These ooey-gooey treats are as fun to make as they are to eat. Pair them with Ménage à Trois Moscato to truly savor the sweetness of being outdoors.

What Does Your Favorite Ménage Wine Say About You?

We all have a signature — something that defines us, reveals our desires, expresses our unique sense of style and sets us apart from the rest. Much like a desirable bespoke suit or a bold red lipstick, the wine you indulge in says a little something special about you, right down to the way you drink it. Are you flirty, bubbly and precocious, like our sparkling Prosecco? Or perhaps you’re a bit more sensual, dark and mysterious like our Midnight.
 
What will your favorite Ménage à Trois wine reveal about your personality? Read on to discover what your go-to drink will divulge.
 
Ménage à Trois Gold
You definitely have a taste for the finer things in life — and we say, embrace it! Like our opulent iteration of chardonnay, you set the gold standard in everything you do. From a wealth of opportunity to a wealth of tropical fruit flavors, you’re never far from life’s greatest riches. So spoil yourself with Gold.
 
Ménage à Trois Silk
Your soft, sensual side is your strong suit, and our silky-smooth red complements your personality every step (or should we say sip?) of the way. Gliding across the palate in the same way that you glide across the room, Ménage à Trois Silk is (almost) as exquisite as you.
 
Ménage à Trois Prosecco
Your bubbly personality is the life of the party — just like our flirtatiously crisp Prosecco. You like to mingle with the crowd, dazzling and delighting everyone with sparkling charm. Playful and sweet with a touch of tart, you know there’s only one way to make a toast: with utterly blissful bubbles from Ménage à Trois.
 
Ménage à Trois Midnight
We know you like to do it in the dark — your preference for this seductive red blend told us so. Deep, dark and passionate, you bring unbridled intensity to everything that you do. When the clock strikes 12 and you pour a glass of Midnight, there’s no telling where your night will lead…

Ménage à Trois Gold: One Sip and You'll Be Totally Smitten

As a Ménage à Trois wine lover we know you’re the adventurous type whose lust for life is as bold as ours, which most likely means you feel that there’s nothing more rousing than exploring uncharted territories. Whether it’s traveling where you never thought you’d dare, or simply experimenting with recipes and wine pairings searching for new tastes you can’t wait to share.

Well, here’s a sensory sensation that’s sure to make you feel like you’ve struck Gold. Our new Ménage à Trois Gold Chardonnay is a savvy wine choice for winter because it’s breaking all the long-standing traditions of heavy-handed red pours. An irresistible fragrance of crème brulée, honeyed pineapple, and exotic floral notes rises from the glass, hinting at delights to come. On the palate, a wealth of ripe tropical fruit flavors meld with luxurious French vanilla and hints of sweet spice before climaxing in a smooth, buttery finish.

Gold’s chic, rich indulgence is divine for pairing with tummy warming apps, swanky desserts for your evening soirees, or for cozying up to your significant other while sharing your decadent dreams for the future.

However, this holiday season, we suggest throwing caution to the wind when it comes to trying to faithfully pair Gold with any one food. Since you’ll most likely be enjoying such a tantalizing array of dishes and flavors, it will unlikely be absolutely right, and there’s nothing wrong with that. After all, the thrill and anticipation of experiencing the unexpected is what makes life so spontaneous.

The wonderful thing about embracing our opulent Gold Chardonnay blend, while entertaining guests or as a thrilling gift, is the fact that 1 in 5 bottles of wine sold in the US is Chardonnay. So we’ll venture to guess that the odds are in your favor that our sublime Gold Chardonnay flavor will satisfy everyone you pour it for.

We live by the belief that it’s not only the abundance of riches, brilliant gold color, or luscious aromas of Ménage à Trois Gold that makes it so memorable, but also who you share it with.

Lights, Camera, Date Night: A Romantic Movie Night Awaits

No one can deny the thrill of a night spent out on the town, but sometimes even the fanciest dinners or mood-lit cocktail lounges are no match for the simple pleasures of staying in with your sweetie. Tonight—or any night, really—skip the long lines and guest lists and instead, transform an ordinary evening into an unforgettable movie date night in the comfort of your own home.

Envision you and your beau cuddled up on the couch, sipping a sensuous varietal of Ménage à Trois wine, while a cinematic classic lingers on the screen. The romance doesn’t get any more effortless than this. Take the evening to another level by pairing your wine with a movie genre. From the sweet to the exciting, there’s a bottle to tantalize every taste. (We’ll call that a win for date night in.)

Mystery/Thriller & Midnight
There’s plenty to do in the dark—like watching a pulse-racing thriller while sipping on the after-hours varietal of choice: Ménage à Trois Midnight.

Film Noir & Pinot Noir
One classic deserves another. Feel like a star alongside your favorite screen sirens as you enjoy all of the seductive flavors that Ménage à Trois Pinot Noir has to offer.

Romantic Comedy & Moscato
Boy meets girl meets Ménage à Trois Moscato—talk about a love triangle! Match the on-screen sweetness with an equally blissful varietal that’s sure to earn rave reviews.

Wine Talk: Wine Myths Debunked

There are certain myths about wine that have traveled unquestioned for as long as anyone can remember – but not all of them are founded in truth. Before your next wine tasting soirée, brush up on your sommelier skills. Our wine myth guide will surprise your guests, while showcasing your wine prowess.

Myth #1:
Wine should be kept on the kitchen counter.
Keeping a Ménage à Trois wine bottle within arm’s reach from the stove seems to make sense. But the best place to store your wine is away from light, heat, and vibration. Relocate your wine rack to a cool, dark part of your home like a pantry, closet, or basement.

Myth #2:
Red wine should be served at room temperature.
Temperature is key when it comes to wine! Red wines that are served straight from the counter top are about 10° too warm. Before serving, give the bottle 10 or 15 minutes to chill out in the fridge.

Myth #3:
White wine should be kept ice cold.
Take your bottle of white out of the fridge about 20 minutes before you’re ready to pop the cork. Your vino will have enough time to make its way to the ideal degree, where flavors are unmasked. Wine myth trivia is a clever conversation starter, and endless fun game at your any Ménage a Trois wine-party.
