Zodiac Signs as Island Grove Wines
Most of us have checked our horoscope from time to time. But have you ever thought about which wine aligns with your sign? We compared the traits of the signs with the traits of our wines and here's our cosmic pairings: Give yours a try & let us know what you think! (I'm Crisp Green Apple)
March 21 - April 19
Sunshine State White Sangria
Known for being bold and courageous, this white sangria is just the drink for an Aries. Your classically extraordinary outlook on life and willingness to try new things makes this a top choice. This wine is a delicious meld of fresh pineapples, peaches & mangos, making this sweet, light-bodied wine a tropical delight and a great drink for a willful individual determined to have a beach day adventure. Aries, you are head strong and know what you want; and that's a drink that won't disappoint - how could something this delicious do that?
April 20 - May 20
Black and Blue
Words associated with you Taurus are often "stubborn, bold, and brave", but the stars also say that you're drawn to comfort and luxury... and what could be more luxurious than this blended mix of 85% blackberries & 15% blueberries? It's dry yet smooth with a great mouth feel. Gentle and fierce with a splash of comfort, just how you like it.
May 21 - June 21
Sorta Sweet & Kinda Dry
This sign is the most impulsive and indecisive of them all. Known for their extreme duality, Geminis can be both sweet and sour; which is why we recommend both Sorta Sweet and Kinda Dry (since we don't have a Kinda Sour). Sorta Sweet is a 100% blueberry wine known for being fruit forward with a medium body and enough sweetness to leave a smile on your face. Kinda Dry is also made with100% blueberries, fruit forward with medium body, and has the perfect balance of fruit acidity with a wonderful dry finish. Though their emotions might be divided 50 / 50, Geminis are like-able 100% of the time; just like these two bottles.
June 22 - July 22
A tale as old as time: the mighty mighty crab retreats into its shell at the first sign of confrontation. After all, this family oriented crustacean will do anything to protect its home; and what wine says home better than the taste of Southern Strawberry? This tangy, light and refreshing Riesling is blended with seductively sweet strawberries, making it a great go-to choice for any homebody; not to mention that its beautiful pink color will compliment the red in your mighty shell.
July 23 - Aug 22
Leos are decisive, romantic and dignified just like our Bold Blackberry; a sweet wine that combines the medium dryness of a fine Merlot with sweet, ripe blackberries. All it takes is a single sip and your taste buds will be rushed with flavors as bright and bold as your regal self. We couldn't think of a better wine for our proud Leos out there.
August 23 - September 22
We opted to pair Virgos with this refreshing summer wine filled with the wonderful aroma of fresh peaches. Backporch Peach is light bodied with a crisp, dry Chardonnay finish. Since Virgos are known for being studious, reliable, pure, and grounded beyond belief... we thought what's more reliable than a good ole' Chardonnay and more pure than the delicate flavors of a peach? Nothing - that's what.
September 23 - October 22
Libras thrive for balance in all parts of life, because when one finds balance, one finds beauty; and our Blueberry Moscato has just that: a beautiful balance. In this bottle you'll find that exotic notes from the Muscat grapes marry beautifully with our fresh, sweet blueberries. As Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet that governs love and beauty it's no coincidence that Libras adore high art and intellectualism. Knowing at least that much, we are fairly certain our fellow Libras will fall in love with this masterpiece in a bottle... and since Libras are obsessed with symmetry and strive to create equilibrium, let's just recap by saying this: Libra + Blueberry Moscato = Perfect Harmony.
October 23 - November 21
Holiday Pomegranate & Berry
Don't let a Scorpio or the implied tart flavor of Pomegranate intimidate you. Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood signs of all the zodiac, much like this fruit blend. The notes of pomegranate in this wine speak a language of power and passion. The flavor is just like this sign's celestial spirit animal, the scorpion; it lies in wait and strikes when you least expect it. Our Holiday Pomegranate & Berry is fruity and sweet with a medium body, and a slight twang on the finish; and though I am comparing it to the sting of a scorpion this packs a simple punch that is much more desirable, making it a perfect Zinfandel blend for the holidays or a dinner wine throughout the year.
November 22 - December 21
Like Scorpio, Sagittarius is a little blunt, or in our case tart. Though tart isn't a word I'd accurately use to describe this wine, we are content with the symbolism of the sweet tang of berries sufficing in general. Rustic Raspberry offers us the flavors of vine-ripened raspberries and rich Zinfandel pairing to create a delicate, sweet and fruity wine. While you're out on the open road trying to quench your wanderlust; Rustic Raspberry is the perfect bottle for you and your taste for adventure.
