As Twenty Something and Tipsy continues to grow it can be hard to keep up on quality content while maintaining a full-time job, social life, mental health, etc. That’s why I’m excited to welcome our very first guest author to the family!

Hey there! My name is Shannon and I’m a fellow twenty something and co-worker turned friend of Sarah’s, living in Portland. I, like Sarah and many of you, enjoy a good drink now and then, so I’m excited to share some of my fun finds with you all!
Another thing that Sarah and I have in common is our love of Trader Joes. Give me the everything bagel seasoning, the chocolate covered banana slices and don’t even get me started on the orange chicken – okay, now I’m hungry.
I was doing my weekly grocery shopping when a pretty little bottle of Freeda rosé trevenezie from Cecilia Beretta caught my eye in the wine aisle. I’m not normally one to only pick based solely on a pretty label, but hey – aesthetic doesn’t hurt! This wine comes from Italy and the grapes are grown near the shores of Lake Garda, so I was definitely intrigued.
I cracked this open one-day after a long day at work and thoroughly enjoyed what I tasted! See below for more thoughts:
Appearance– pale pinky peach and clear
Swirling & Smelling– I picked up a fruity peach smell along with a hint of berry
Tasting– Mellow, dry and fruity. It’s not overly sweet and features notes of peach and strawberry. When I first opened this up the taste was faint, but as it warmed up slightly the flavors continued to emerge.
I think this would pair well with something light like chicken, seafood or salad. This was also an affordable purchase at only $9.99, so next time you are looking for a reasonably priced rosé at Trader Joes – I give this my vote!
