Sip into relaxation with Uncorked Ventures - review








Relaxing with on the couch with a glass of wine is a delightful way to spend a quiet Friday evening. The most pressing question on my plate is which wine to enjoy. Without the burden of pairing a wine with an elaborate meal, the options for my generous pour are greater. From a light citrus infused white wine to a bold, robust red, my mood dictates the bottle.

Recently I was introduced to Vinroc, a red table wine sent to me by Uncorked Ventures. While I was slightly dubious of opening an unknown, unlabeled bottle of red wine,  I was pleasantly surprised by the jammy quality of this wine and its easy drinkability.

According to the tasting notes, the Vinroc table wine offers layers of dark fruit, mochas, spices and licorice. As the wine develops in the glass, the floral notes become more pronounced.

For me, I noticed mostly fruity notes to this wine. The jammy quality added to the lightness of the wine. The wine was easy to drink on its own. If I would pair this wine with food, I would see it served with soft cheeses, a spicy meat dish or even a hearty fish. Most importantly, the wine was as pleasant as it was when it was first opened.

Uncorked Ventures offers a variety of wines from the Napa region. Depending on personal preference, the wine club offers several options. Each month members can explore new wines within the region. From bold, full bodied cabernets to oak filled chardonnay, the fun is trying them all.

12x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates

Our family is considering a new GoPro camera. Last year we went to Costa Rica and wished that we had a GoPro for zipling, snorkeling and other adventures. With an upcoming huge family vacation next year, we want to find a GoPro option that works both in and out of water, can handle fast paced adventure and still can capture a beautiful sunset. 

While we haven’t yet decided which GoPro is perfect for our uses, I know that the kids will enjoy testing out all the features prior to our vacation. With a GoPro, we can strap it to a bike helmet or wrap it around our chest. This type of camera allows for all the action to be captured just like the person wearing it sees it. It is the perfect way to re-live every exciting moment over and over again. 


All the new GoPro cameras and accessories are available at Best Buy. 

This holiday season put adventure on the top of your family’s wish list. Capture the moment for posterity with GoPro cameras.

Digestive relief with D-GAS, review


There are times when indulgence or possibly over-indulgence happens. It could be a friend's party or a holiday celebrations. The heavier foods and even a few libations can cause a disruption in the digestive system. The little toot or other unfortunate digestive rumblings can be embarrassing. Sometimes a little help from a supplement can get everything back on track. The D-Gas supplement can help.

D-GAS spells a new level of physical, mental and emotional relief for many Americans suffering from gas and digestive disorders. The D-GAS formula is a statement of commitment to your overall well-being-not just a remedy for the digestive uneasiness. 

 

This all natural supplement offers the following:

  • Natural Gas Relief & Prevention
  • Helps Prevent & Relieve Bloating, Discomfort and Flatulence
  • Fast Acting and Effective. All Natural - No artificial color, flavor or sweetener, no sugar, no preservatives, no soy, no lactose, no gluten, no salt
  • D-gas may be taken daily as a natural digestive aid, anti-gas aid and antioxidant
  • Doctor Recommended
 The D-Gas can be taken either after meals or before eating gas producing foods. With a dual approach, the product can serve a variety of situations. The ingredients in the product are all natural. This approach helps to keeps additional additives from further irritating the digestive system. 

Knowing digestive issues all too well, I wanted to try this product. What I appreciated about the product is that it works well in a relatively short period of time. Unlike other natural products that have to build up in your system, the D-Gas worked effectively and quickly. Having taken this product going to bed, I was able to sleep more soundly without the night-time interruptions from digestive issues. More importantly, I was able to start a new day without discomfort from the previous indiscretions. 


Having taken this product for a little while, I appreciated that I did not have to increase the dosage over time. With other products, I noticed that I had to continually up the dose to maintain effectiveness. With the D-Gas, I was able to maintain a constant level which is important to me. 


D-Gas can be purchased online at Amazon.com. A 60 capsule bottle retails for approximately $16.99.
