Choosing The Perfect Wine For Your Weekend

João Pedro Montes, CEO, Wine with Spirit

After an insane week, it’s finally Friday! You just want to slow down and relax; whether that’s on your own, with your loved one or partying with friends. And since it’s the weekend, a glass of wine is sure to feature somewhere in your plans.

So here are my wine suggestions, depending on your weekend plans:

SPENDING AN EVENING RELAXING ON YOUR OWN…

Wine suggestion: BREAD&CHEESE

It´s Sunday evening. You’re staying in, relaxing before the week starts again. The brunch was late so the dinner is decided: a bottle of a good wine and some delicious cheeses. Play that your favourite CDs and enjoy. Moments like this are one in a million.

SATURDAY NIGHT OUT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND…

Wine suggestion: BASTARDÔ!

It’s Saturday night and your friends are coming to pick you up. The week was bad but tonight you will put all that behind you and party. Tonight you will be unstoppable. As soon as your friends start arriving, open a bottle of Bastardô! and dare to make a toast to the bastards in your lives. Whether your boss is a pain in the neck, or your girlfriend has cheated on you with your best friend, never forget what you’re capable of. That’s Bastardo!

FAMILY TIME ON SUNDAY WITH…

Wine suggestion: MEAT & MEET

You had a wonderful lie-in but now you’re running late for Sunday lunch with your family. You arrive at your parents and your father is already in charge of the barbecue. The food smells great and you have brought the perfect wine for the occasion; Meat & Meet, a wine dedicated to BBQ chefs everywhere!

SPECIAL MEAL WITH YOUR SOUL MATE AND…

Wine suggestion: DINE WITH ME TONIGHT

Tonight will be special. It’s just the two of you. Light the fire or the candles, turn the music on and open a bottle of wine to toast your relationship and these special moments.

Dine With Me Tonight is the perfect accompaniment to an intimate and special meal.

CURRY CHEF IN THE HOUSE WITH…

Wine suggestion: BASTARDÔ! BLACK EDITION

Prepare a deliciously spicy curry with aromatic rice, papadums and nan. Or take the easy option and order in a take-away.  Invite your friends. Open a bottle of red wine and drink to the small pleasures of life. Drinking with good friends over a great meal – that’s something to celebrate.

CINEMA AT HOME WITH…

Wine suggestion: BASTARDÔ! WHITE

It’s Saturday afternoon and it’s raining – that means it’s the perfect time to call some friends and invite them to watch a movie at your place. A shared couch, a glass of a light and fresh wine, and a film that pleases everyone. It can be interrupted, commented on and applauded. Because friendships have never been silent and a good movie, like a good wine, is best when shared.

CHINESE DISH WITH…

Wine suggestion: SEAFOOD & CO

You are laying on your coach, too lazy to go prepare your dinner. Suddenly, someone knocks on the door. Your best friend knows you too well and has decided to bring you Chinese food. Open a bottle of Seafood & Co and tuck into those noodles and dumplings.

WINE WITH SPIRIT

Wine with Spirit, formed in 2011 is the world’s first ‘Winetech’, using technology to disrupt a centuries-old marketplace with long-established traditions.

Wine with Spirit produces high-quality wine blends associated to strong and easily identifiable brands that reflect consumer needs in terms of moments or emotions, which have been previously identified through ethnographic research. Unlike other wine producers, they work from the market to the vineyard and not the other way around.

WWS sells across 4 continents and in more than 10 countries, with a growing trend in countries outside of Europe. In this last quarter alone, they had 3 more markets joining our exporting countries. Additionally, their proprietary digital distribution platform, Lyfetaste, signed up more than 1,000 affiliate sellers in the first 9 months without any significant marketing and promotion investment.
