We Are Family!

No one said it better then Sister Sledge when they sang, “We are Family…I’ve got all my Sisters with me!”  However, in our case we had all our sisters, mothers, aunts, cousins, and friends with us!  Just to make you a little more familiar with us, three of the four original Whine and Wine girls are related.  We are cousins that come from a huge family that started with our Grandparents who had 18 children.  From them, our family tree has grown by the hundreds.  Being part of such an enormous family has it benefits, because not one of us will ever be alone!  We will always have our brothers, sisters, and cousins and no one knows this better then two of the original cousins, Jeanne and Tina.  Being the mothers of three Whine and Wine girls they naturally started hearing about our nights.  It wasn’t long until the two of them started talking and that is how the family Whine and Wine came about.  Through them the word got out and so did the invites for the Family Whine and Wine.  Dates, times, and locations were arranged and before we knew it, they had it all planned to be hosted by Jeanne at her house.   

 

The night and the location couldn’t have been better.  Jeanne’s recreation room was the perfect setting equipped with a bar, shuffle board, dance floor and lots of wine!  Our beverage of choice for the night was Beringer White Zinfandel.  This wine is probably one of the most widely sold wines in restaurants, bars, and liquor stores all over the United States.  You know right from the start that Beringer White Zinfandel will be a crowd-pleaser as well a favorite amongst several Whine and Wine ladies.  Its blush color, sweet and fruity style and light finish will mix easily with many palates.  It is quite an enjoyable wine that is very easy to drink.  We highly recommend this wine for any occasion, and it will fit into any budget. 

 

The Ladies started arriving, some expected and others by surprise.  We had family and friends from all over New Jersey and from clear across our country in California.  It was a true reunion between family and friends that was long overdue.  Everyone had a chance to fill the whole group in on all that was currently happening in their lives.  No matter good or bad, we were all there for each other eagerly waiting to hear what was happening in the next woman’s life.  As the wine flowed, well wishes and advice were flying around the room that included two generations of women and family friends.  It was just what everyone needed to get the night started!

 

Some of the original Whine and Wine girls wanted to show the ladies the traditional Whine and Wine dances.  Not only did they love them, they were quick to catch on!  In return they showed us their moves from when they were teenagers having their own girl’s nights.  The mix of ages led to the mix of music.  That’s what made this Whine and Wine unique.  The dances ranged from today’s “The Cupid Shuffle” to the classic “Soul City Walking.”  Needless to say, we all had a great workout and learned some new moves!

 

Our family Whine and Wine proved to be an absolute success and had us all thinking about why we hadn’t done this sooner.  One of our Aunts even made mention that our Grandmother will be attending the next family Whine and Wine.  This had some of our Whine and Wine girls thinking about how awesome it was to share a night with the women who make up several generations of our family.  These women have helped mold us into the strong people we are today, and on that particular evening, we all were drinking, laughing, and being extremely open with each other.  We were all on the same page and were no longer mothers, aunts, cousins, and sisters:  we were just women proving that that the barrier between age and relation can be brought down when you are just being you over a glass of wine.
