    Wine lovers, we’ve got some exciting news for you! Did you know that there’s a magical ingredient in wine that might just help you shed a few pounds while still enjoying your favorite glass of vino? That’s right – we’re talking about resveratrol, the famous antioxidant found in red wine. In this lighthearted blog post, we’ll explore the amusing connection between resveratrol, weight loss, and Bogati Winery’s Fat Ass Red wine. So, pour yourself a glass of your favorite wine (preferably our Fat Ass Red), sit back, and let’s dive into this hilarious yet informative journey.

    Resveratrol: The Secret Weapon in Your Wine Glass:

    Resveratrol is a natural compound found in red wine, known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. But here’s the fun part – some studies have suggested that resveratrol might play a role in weight loss by influencing metabolism and fat storage. So, if you’re feeling guilty about indulging in a glass of wine after a long day, just remember – you might be doing your waistline a favor!

    Now, let’s talk about our very own Fat Ass Red. Bogati’s Fat Ass Red is a delightful blend of rich, full-bodied red grapes such as: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Merlot, that will make your taste buds dance with joy. This tongue-in-cheek named wine is not only a nod to the humor we love to incorporate into our winery, but it can now be enjoyed as a subtle wink to the potential weight-loss benefits of resveratrol. While we can’t promise that our Fat Ass Red will turn you into a fitness model overnight, we do guarantee that it’s a delicious wine worth enjoying as part of a balanced lifestyle. We’re not saying that you should drink bottle after bottle of our Fat Ass Red wine, but if you did, we wouldn’t judge you. 

    The Lighter Side of Wine:

    We know that health and fitness goals are important, but sometimes it’s essential to take a step back and have a little fun with the process. After all, laughter is the best medicine, right? So, as you sip on your glass of Fat Ass Red, remember to smile, laugh, and enjoy the journey – both in your pursuit of health and in your appreciation of good wine.

    In the end, it’s important to keep in mind that while resveratrol may offer some weight-loss benefits, it’s not a magic potion that can replace a healthy diet and exercise routine. But, if you’re a wine lover looking for a fun way to approach your health goals with a touch of humor, our Fat Ass Red might just be the perfect choice for you. So, let’s raise a glass to laughter, good health, and, of course, the delightful taste of Bogati Winery’s Fat Ass Red. Cheers!

  • 3 Tips for Planning Your Spring Winery Outfit

    “What if I’m underdressed?” – If you are at all worried about your outfit for your first Virginia winery experience this spring, take a deep breath. You are not alone. We have a few tips to not only look your best, but feel your best while you explore your palate this spring!

    1. Comfort is Key – As much as it is second nature to dress to impress, you want to be at your most comfortable so that you can properly enjoy the day! The last thing you want is to feel rushed to get home to take off those heels or ditch the suit jacket. Consider materials that are lightweight and dress in a style that feels natural for you. Come as you are!
    1. Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold – Temperatures in wine country can fluctuate, even on the same day. You may order inside or enjoy a tasting, but then decide to enjoy another glass out on the patio. Dressing in layers that you can put on or take off will help you as you transition from indoors to outdoors, or if the forecast takes a sudden turn!
    1. The Future’s so Bright – One of the best parts of enjoying a Virginia winery is taking in the gorgeous scenery. You’ll likely want to spend a bit of time in the great outdoors! Remembering to apply sunscreen before your trip can be a lifesaver – and remembering to toss a tube in your purse if you are planning to stay most of the day. A lightweight, breathable material, floppy hat, and sunglasses can come to your aid in looking past the heat during these spring months.

    Above all…remember to come as you are! Wineries are meant for everyone to enjoy. There is no dress code, no criteria you must meet. Wear what feels comfortable, keeps you cool, and allows you to stay and make the most out of a beautiful day with a glass in hand!

  • How to Wrap a Wine Bottle

    Your holiday shopping is done. You’ve checked your list twice and found the perfect gift for everyone on it. The holiday cheer is rolling in as you begin wrapping each one and placing them around your tree. You can’t wait to see the look on everyone’s face as they open what you picked just for them! Then you remember the wine bottle. You hunted forever to find the wine your loved one was raving about, but now…now you have to try to wrap it.

    Just like you, we used to think there was no true easy way to wrap a wine bottle. It was either hours spent rolling, unrolling, and rolling the paper around the bottle again or crumbled corners and uneven bows. Some years, you were tempted just to toss it in a bag.

    We are excited to share the adorable, but easy ways we’ve learned to wrap a wine bottle!

    1. Turn your wine bottle into the perfect, chic themed gift!
    Wrap your bottle in a tea towel. You can pick out a holiday towel or find one that matches their kitchen decor.
    Not only is this a quick, fun way to wrap the bottle, but it protects the bottle by providing an extra layer of cushion. This dual purpose gift is bound to be a hit among your friends and family.
    If you want to continue the theme, adding a small cheese board is a beautiful addition to your wonderfully wrapped bottle of wine!

    2. Dress up your gift by dressing up the bottle!
    Turn your favorite pair of socks into an adorable bottle sweater! Keep it simple and put one sock on each bottle of wine, or use the pair to transform your bottle into a boot.
    This practical, but fun gift provides your loved one with all of the best comforts (wine and warm tootsies) during these cold winter months.

    3. Keep it simple!
    Nothing makes someone’s eyes light up like seeing a bottle of their favorite wine under the tree with their name on it! Why wrap the bottle at all? You can dress the gift up with an elegant ribbon around the neck, adding mulling spices, or even including a recipe card for a dish that pairs beautifully with that bottle. Cute, easy, practical, and avoids the mess of paper!

    No matter how you choose to wrap (or not wrap) these bottles of wine, they are sure to bring a big smile to your loved one’s face. Remember to keep it cheerful, fun, and simple this holiday.
