At Home With Bridge Lane
It seems like all I do is WINE these days, but at least I get to do it with Bridge Lane!
What I love most about Bridge Lane is that they make wines to be enjoyed and to have fun with! These wines are not meant for your expensive Riedel glasses, instead crack open a can, head out on the deck and chill!
At least, that’s what I do!
Bridge Lane produces White Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé, a Red Blend, an Unoaked Chardonnay, and Bubbles. Each wine is available in 4 different formats and that’s where the party really starts!
For beach days, grab a 4 pack of cans. Chilling at home solo? Simply grab a bottle, no judgement here if you need more than one, I often do! When I have a group of people coming over, say for an old fashioned sleepover, I love a box of wine! But if you are really trying to be the life of the party order a keg of wine. Yes, you read that right: KEGS OF WINE! It’s so glorious that it’s almost unbelievable. I can’t wait for the first post-social distancing party so I can show up with a keg of rosé.
I’ll tell you a secret though – the cans of wine are deceiving! Each can is the equivalent to 2 glasses of wine, meaning these are not to be pounded in the same fashion as a can of Bud Light. Unless you’re ready to pay the price, of course.
In case you’re wondering, I did learn this the hard way with a few of these cans of Bridge Lane Bubbles one Saturday morning. So while these aren’t incredibly complex wines that you are going to analyze each note on, they are truly delicious wines that you want to drink every day.
Having never heard of a White Merlot, and not being a huge fan of the variety to begin with, this was the most intriguing. PSA – I mean no offense to merlot, that’s all my mother drinks. She’s accustomed to large format, cheap merlot though which just doesn’t agree with me anymore.
Bridge Lane’s White Merlot is made from the merlot grapes, but has no skin contact which causes the color change. I have to admit it that this one is quite refreshing and may be my new favorite of the Bridge Lane collection!
Bridge Lane Wines are produced by Lieb Cellars on the North Fork of Long Island, an increasingly popular place to both visit, and drink wines and ciders from. The Hamptons are always on my seasonal to do list because any time of the year you can find something fun to do!
I am so looking forward to being able to visit their winery this Summer, pending we can go outside again. They offer wine tastings for $15 which include a flight of all 5 wines, and events throughout the summer months!
Drop me a line below and maybe we can all schedule an outing together!
