There’s nothing more beautiful than having a quiet Monday afternoon, sitting on your back porch, watching the sun filter through the trees and light up the backyard. What makes it more beautiful is a light, crimson colored glass of wine. The Dreaming Tree’s Crush Red Wine is the wine you want.
Created by wine aficionado Steve Reeder and wine enthusiast Dave Matthews, it’s a specially selected blend of their favorite varieties to “create a red that pulls you in with notes of smoky berry and a pop of raspberry jam.”
“Lovely lady, let me drink you, please.” -Crush, Dave Matthews Band. It’s the perfect lyric to describe this wine. Its light crimson color, its luscious legs running daintily down the side of a wine glass. Its scent like a woman in a red dress, devious yet delicious. It’s best comparison is a Pinot Noir. Light but with hints of fruit to bring out its flavor. It doesn’t necessarily need to be paired with food, but if you decide to the wine makers suggest to drink it with Vietnamese style grilled ribs and jasmine rice. The recipe can be found on their website at Dreaming Tree Wines.
Also on their website they have a great collaboration of videos to watch explaining the vineyard their grapes come from, their locals, and how their wine comes from “a little bit of science, and a whole lot of soul.”
Dreaming Tree Wines are also environment friendly. The “green” lightweight bottles are made with clean burning natural gas. The labels are made of 100% recycled paper with all blank ink printing. Also, their corks come from natural, sustainable farms. Cork trees are becoming extinct, so the fact they make their own really instills my faith in wine makers.
Want a bottle? Or a case? You can order them here! It’s $15 for a bottle or $180 for a case; however, they only deliver to certain states (they have a list on the website).
“I make wine for people to drink. I don’t make wines for people to put in their cellar.” -Steve Reeder, on wine
