Libra is represented by the Scales - which signifies that they seek balance and harmony in their lives. They are also gifted with an artistic eye, a charming, diplomatic nature.

Delicious food pairing ideas for your Virgo Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Virgo is the zodiac’s most reliable sign and Cab is the world’s most trusted red wine.  As the zodiac’s most helpful and hardworking sign, Virgo makes the world a better place one detail at a time.  If you are looking to treat your Virgo for a change, try this great recipe to match their Cabernet Sauvignon.

Virgo is an earthy sign, which means that they may enjoy a meal out in nature, underneath the sunshine.  A heavier flavored pasta with some spicy pepperoni would go great with this Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley.  

Pepperoni Pasta Salad

  • 2 cups uncooked tricolor spiral pasta
  • 1 cup cubed cheddar cheese

Happy Birthday to the Regal Leo

The Sun moved into the sign of Leo on July 23, 2014 and will remain there until August 22. Leo is the 5th sign of the zodiac, a fixed fire sign, ruled by the Sun. Leo's are a joy to be around, as they exude warmth, generosity, and enthusiasm. Many Leo's are creative and love to express themselves in dramatic ways.  

For Leo's wine, we paired them with a regal Old Vine Zinfandel that is handcrafted with grapes from 120 year old vines, some of the oldest vine stock in the United States, and the world. This wine is fruit forward, bold, with a slight spice, and a hint of vanilla. It is sure to be the center of the table, like Leo.

Celebrate the Leo in your life.

12 Signs Wine Photoshoot

We recently had a backyard summer photo shoot for 12 Signs Wine. Our good friend and amazing photographer Matt Wignall was in charge of the shoot and his wife, Judita Wignall, author of 2 raw food cookbooks put together an amazing salmon dinner for us.  We think the photographs turned out great, and it was a lot fun in the process (wine+food - what's not to love?) 

Here are some of our favorite shots:

Full Moon, Full Cups

May your cup be as full as the moon is tonight

Tip: A full moon means that the moon is 180 degrees (or exactly opposite) from the sun.  One way to that you can always know the sign that the moon is in based on the date. Today, July 12, the sun is in the sign of Cancer. The sign of Capricorn is 6 months away from Cancer (January 12) or opposite the Sun. Therefore, you know that the moon is now in the sign Capricorn.
