Anybody who loves wine knows that style maven Romy Raves has her fingers on the pulse of the wine industry! I literally tripped over myself to RSVP for her #WineRaves event at BlogHer11 in San Diego, CA. Hosted by Chwine with delectable food provided by Mccormick and Schmicks the evening provided an oasis of calm,elegance and good taste amid the madness of Blogher 11
We tasted six chwine , I was shocked at how affordable the wines are, seriously, these are very,very drinkable, your guests would never in a million years guess that you got them for a song, total liquid luxury!

wait staff glided among Romy’s guests offering up salmon & other fabulous gourmet food offerings . I must tell you that the Moscato D’Asti paired up with the chocolate dessert was almost better than sex!
In addition to knowing her wines, Romy has the knack for putting interesting folks together. I had the pleasure to chat with some fascinating women includingadd in great wine & food and it made for a most pleasurable evening!
As if all of the above wasn’t enough, as each guest departed we were presented with lovely tote bags from pier 1 imports stuffed with goodies VenoMAX Treatment crème, luxury scented soap & candle from a full makeup brush set from Royal Langnickel and much,much more!
