One thing I don’t really talk about here is the fact that I try to keep up a healthy lifestyle. From going to the gym to eating right—I try to keep health at the forefront (and wine has antioxidants, so I’m covered on all fronts). So when @wellandworth connected with me about a clean-crafted wine, I was totally in.
Well and Worth, a pharmacist by day, is obsessed with ingredients and ingredient safety. She’s always believed in wine for health (that’s where we connected)—especially given the research of the Blue Zones (they study populations who live past 100) they found that a common theme of people that live past 100 is that they enjoy a class of wine at 5pm with dinner and friends. A while back, as she was reading and looking at the wine making process (from grapes to bottle), she was horrified to learn that most conventional wines add 250+ chemicals, add sulfites (especially if harvested during the day or when its warm), add 16-32 grams of sugar (even to wines that aren’t sweet), and the grapes are grown with pesticides—so basically taking away from any of the health benefits of wine.

Fast forward to when she learned about Scout & Cellar clean crafted wines—an organic/bio-dynamic, no pesticides, no added sugar, no added sulfites, and no added chemicals wine, with most being vegan and keto/paleo friendly. The most intriguing part of the wine is that all must past the taste test of a level 3 Sommelier (now that’s something). She tried the wine for herself and was sold, deciding to take it on as a business opportunity to help people who enjoy wine to get safer wine without sacrificing taste or experience—and that’s how Clean Wine at 5 was born!
I had the pleasure of enjoying Scout & Cellar’s Viñas Olvidadas Cabernet Sauvignon and Che Fico Pinot Grigio, and now I want to share it all with you through a giveaway (woot woot)! I’m giving away the same pair so you can share with your other half.
