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.

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:
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.
12 Signs Wine loves Pinterest. We pin things that we think your zodiac sign would love based on your personality. Each zodiac sign has a different board. What does your sign like? Follow us for fun wine quotes, recipes, decor, inspiration, and style pins.

Mercury went into retrograde on June 7th, 2014 and now today, July 1st, is starting to turn direct. Mercury Retrograde is a great time to do anything that starts with "re" such as reorganize, redo, rethink, rework, relax, restructure, and re-connect! Basically just go over and redo things and rework them. Connect with people you have lost touch with and rethink old plans. It is not the best time to start new projects or sign contracts, as details may change once it goes direct.
The morning after you drink wine you may be a bit fuzzy, that is how Mercury is today as it shifts from backwards to forward motion. It is just waking up from a long sleep and needs some coffee to get going again. So before you rush out of the gate on all your new projects, give Mercury a little time to wake up. Tomorrow is a great day to initiate your bold new plans. Cheers to that!
