We are super excited to share that we have partnered with our friends at Voluptuary + Lucid Wines for a Limited Edition Organic Sparkling Wine Tasting Kit!! Wine Tasting at home is one of our fave things to do for a date night at home or afternoon with friends, so that’s why we are so excited about this limited edition wine tasting kit!
First, let’s share a bit about Voluptuary + Lucid Wines. Lucid Wines are:
- natural – preservative free, sulfite free, additive free
- pure & vegan
- and delicious….they check all the boxes
Voluptuary + Lucid Wines is a Sacramento based small-batch winery with wines made by Winemaker Kevin Luther. For every bottle sold, they donate to charity…so you can drink well and do good at the same time!
Jason + I are definitely wine fans but we hadn’t tasted many organic wines up until meeting the Voluptuary + Lucid Wines team, but WOW….these are such delicious and unique sparkling wines! Since our very first tasting with Kevin we were won over.
One of the fun facts we learned during our tasting with Kevin is that there are absolutely no added sugars in Voluptuary + Lucid Wines, any sweetness is from the residual sugar of the grapes themselves. We loved hearing this, as we’re always looking for ways to cut sugar out of our diets. Also, when it comes to wine, the added sugars are what makes them overly sweet once you’ve been enjoying them for a while. But of course, perhaps the nicest perk of no added sugar is no (or at least lessened – depending on how many glasses you enjoy :) headache the next day!!
Our Sparking Wine Tasting Kit
And now onto the GWS x Lucid Limited Edition Sparkling Wine Tasting Kit!
Our special tasting set features THREE unique organic sparkling wines that are delivered right to your door! Voluptuary + Lucid began offering similar kits for their wines during quarantine and they were such a fun and convenient hit that we’re just had to use them for our sparkling wine tasting kits. Each time we see them arrive on our front porch, we find a reason to celebrate! The kits make for a perfect date night at home activity, gift for those in your wedding – or just a treat for yourself!
Each sparkling wine is organic and sugar-free and arrives in bottles have been custom designed by GWS and Lucid. To help you enjoy each, we offer paring suggestions of food, music and moments in life.
