It’s that time of year: the time of year we all collectively break our resolution without discussing it with each other.
It’s a bit sweet if you think about it. Complete strangers throughout the country on the same page at the same time. However, according to Strava, if you had an activity-based resolution, you already broke it a few weeks ago based on their GPS data.
But we’ll blame it on the weather for those breakages.
Here at YourWineStore, we believe you can start a resolution any time of the year and easily attain it. (As long as it can easily fit into your schedule. We’re realistic.) With that said, we are here to help you pick a new resolution and keep it this time!
Read, scan, or close your eyes and point to pick your new mid-year resolution.
Resolution: Make Healthier Choices.
With only 85 calories, 3 carbs, no added sugar, and low alcohol, this Chardonnay has everything you need and leaves all the other stuff out. It’s crisp, refreshing, and delicious. If you're the type of person who relaxes with a glass of wine at the end of the night, this is the perfect everyday wine to sip.
Resolution: Save Money.
If you know you’re going to buy wine in 2023, then do yourself a favor and join a wine club. Besides saving 15-20% on all wines you purchase this year (yes, all wines), you’ll also save on tasting experiences at select wineries and receive additional member-only discounts.
Resolution: Learn a new language.
Some of the best wines come from Italy and Italian wine labels are full of Italian words. Pair these wines with a free language podcast, and you’ll be speaking Italian before you know it*. Here are a few words to help you get started:
The main grape of Chianti Classico wines. Sangiovese wines are earthy, high tannin, and red-fruit-forward.
Chianti Classico (kee-aun-tee) (class-ee-co)
Wines produced from higher altitude areas of the Chianti region of Tuscany.
Red grapes make fruity, high-acid wine with low tannins.
Molto Bene (mole-toe) (ben-aye)
Italian for “very good”.

Resolution: Be More Eco-Conscious.
All wines featured at YourWineStore are sustainably focused and most brands are certified sustainable. Here are just a few ways some of the wineries have prioritized sustainability:
- Winery water is recycled and reused in the vineyard
- Waste is reduced by composting pomace and reusing it
- Cover crop encourages insect habitats and improves water holding
Rest assured that when you make a purchase from YourWineStore, you’re supporting businesses that prioritize the land.
Resolution: Be More Present.
Between status updates, work email on your phone, and the 24-hour news cycle, it’s easy to get sucked into mindless scrolling (as opposed to mindful scrolling). Instead, we recommend not scrolling at all and pouring yourself a glass of wine to help you savor the moment (just like like you savor the wine). Whether you prefer to sip for special occasions or sip while enjoying your favorite reality show, the point is to pause, sip, and be more present.
Resolution: Get Out of Your Comfort Zone.
Skydiving, auditioning for a local play, or attempting stand up comedy for the first time at an open mic night are all great ways to get out of your comfort zone. Although we support your decision to try all those things, there are simpler ways to get out of your comfort zone, and one of them is tasting wines you’ve never tried before. Try a new brand, vintage, or varietal. There’s no wrong answer. Go crazy!
Resolution: Cook More at Home.
The Whiskey and Lace Wine Club has three shipments a year with easy and affordable recipes in every shipment. Not only will you make delicious, wine-friendly meals, but you’ll do it without breaking the bank.
