Simpler Wines combines the convenience of a can with a delightfully, Italian vino frizzante (sparkling wine). In Simpler Wines White, notes of juicy honeydew and fresh cut herbs provide sweet sippability, complementing such savory pairings as fresh bread & olives or Parmigiano Reggiano. The elegant, mineral notes and red fruit flavors of Simpler Wines Rosé are a natural fit for fresh pasta, seafood or sweets.

This wine isn't anything I would normally drink but the hoopla about it in Trader Joe's made me seek it out and give it a taste.  I actually drunk it and tried my best to pull out what I thought would be some kind of flavor.  Not quality, not aromas or real taste.  But a fair shot with this tasting.

We end with the televised Award show that brought nothing to the conversation other than how late it was to present the seasons top players, coaches and miscellaneous fill in award
