I know you’ve heard the saying, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, but how many of you judge a wine by the label like I do? I am soooo guilty of this with all the beautiful labels out there and this Rebel Red wine by Middle Sister was calling my name! With that cute, little, redheaded figure on it, wearing glasses no less, I had to buy it. I’m not sure what I was expecting from this popular brand, but it was decent, just not great. Maybe I didn’t have it at the right temperature? However, that doesn’t mean I won’t try the other sisters in this brand someday. I was hoping to find some information on their website, but besides the adorable graphics, I didn’t find much history on the brand or where it’s made. I love the #dropsofwisdom they offer; some are quite cute and snarky such as the one on the back of my Rebel Red bottle, “If anyone tells you they don’t like red wine, stop talking to them. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.” So, all in all, I must say, the brand is a refreshing novelty among a sea of serious winemakers out there and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for the women behind, Middle Sister.
