Playdate (noun): A date and time set by parents for children to play together.
In my opinion, playdates are not only for the kids to run around freely living their best lives while working on their social skills and development but also for the adults to mix, mingle and have “adult” conversations in a relaxed environment. (insert Billy Joel’s Piano Man line – “And forget about life for a while”). Within this relaxed (and contained) environment it’s only appropriate to add some delicious wine to the mix – am I right? This is why I’m dedicating an article fully on “Playdate” Wines!
The list below has been carefully curated based off of specific criteria (that I made up) consisting of: simplicity, quality + fun factor. I thought it would be helpful to outline the perfect wines to bring with you in various situations you may find yourself in such as those Sunday afternoon playdates when Sunday anxiety creeps up OR when your kids are besties but you’ve never met the other moms! This is your mid-2019 off the shelf guide to playdate wines!
