A Review: ChocoVine

I'm all for creative ideas. 

Hell, I get crazy if I don't have some sort of craft project going on. 

I'm also all for trying new things.

So when I saw THIS at my local Winco....

...I just HAD to.

My main purpose of this experiment was to have another bottle in the wine aisle to make fun of. But I'm still undecided whether or not I'll actually do this.

Here are my thoughts:

There is no wine in this. It says 'The taste of dutch chocolate and fine red wine' Dutch chocolate? yes, fine red wine? no. Red wine? no. Wine?? Nope.

I think there's actually vodka in this!!


Because it tastes EXACTLY like the chocolate martinis my mom and I are obsessed with at the martini bar we go to in Mexico. So either, ChocoVine is bottling Cabo's chocolate martini awesomeness, or our favorite  martini bar is serving us bottled chocolate wine and calling it a martini!!

Now, I wouldn't make such harsh accusations if I wasn't completely certain that the alcohol content of this 'wine' is actually derived from fermented potatoes. Because I'm quite certain it is. Wine just doesn't have that alcoholic taste that this stuff has. And I'm not stating these claims because I'm having a vodka effect vs. a wine effect. I mean, this is coming from the girl who doesn't even drink anymore. (other than wine, like once a month, and a marg, like, once every three months) But seriously, I've had like an ounce of this, and it's not wine. I mean, those people in Holland might just be tricking us Americans... Holland isn't exactly known for their wine. I might have Alex call them to investigate this further-- he's fluent in Dutch. (A man of many talents)

IN CONCLUSION: If you like chocolate martinis, by all means, get this stuff. That's exactly what it is. If you were hoping for something a little more wino-ish, you won't find it here.

Will I make fun of it? Probably. Will I still buy it if I'm on my period? Absolutely.

Happy Drinking! umm, err... what??
