The perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day is to sip on a glass of wine. I was invited by BzzAgent to join the Sawmill Creek campaign, so I picked up a bottle of dry white. There were many different types of Sawmill Creek wines to choose from, in 750mL and 1.5L bottles.
I decided to go with a dry white wine to sip on and to use for cooking.
The wine was easy to drink and was smooth tasting, with nice fruity green apple notes. It was a well balanced wine that was perfect for cooking and paired great with this chicken dish that used a white wine cream sauce.
The meal suggestions on the back of the bottle include: serving as an apertif, with poultry, seafood, pork and mild cheeses.
If you are in need of a re-aquaintance with the art of unwinding, here are a few simple ways to start:
- Take 10 minutes at the end of the day to reflect on the day's accomplishments (big or small) and treat yourself to a glass of Sawmill Creek.
- At the end of the week, challenge yourself to carve out the time and space to unwind. Pour yourself a hot bath, let yourself sink in and enjoy a glass of Sawmill Creek.
- Invite your friends over and enjoy Simple Sipping as you create a bucket list. Then commit each of your friends to crossing one off by the end of the year. Big or small - they all count.
- Savour a moment of gratitude and share it. Enjoy some Simple Sipping while you send a simple, unexpected note of gratitude to 5 people.
