A Romantic Night In With SlimLine Wine*

I love a romantic night in, with a bottle of wine, a film and some good food. Even though Valentines was a few weeks ago I wanted to talk about what George and I did as we always like to make something of the day and celebrate it. It was our first proper date night in such a long time and it was kind of just what we do every Valentines but with a few extras including a fancy bottle of wine from SlimLine Wine.

I always look forward to Valentines and this year I'd been planning for a good few weeks. We'd booked tickets to see the new (and final 😭) Fifty Shades film ages ago so that was how we started our evening, with a load of nachos and sweets. We go to the cinema quite often anyway but it's kind of tradition now for us to go on Valentines and then we usually end up going for a meal afterwards or cooking at home. This year we decided to cook, and as basically all of the supermarkets were doing a Valentines special meal deal, we picked up one of those to save us lots of hassle when we got in that night. We went for the Asda deal this year as it was £15 and had so much choice! For starter we had Cornish Camembert which came with a sloe gin and cranberry dip. For main we had our favourite, steak, with hasselback potatoes and roasted veg, and finally for dessert we had Lemon tarts which were delicious.

To go with all of that tasty food we needed something to wash it down and the Sparkling White from SlimLine Wine was perfect! SlimLine Wine launched their range of delicious new wines in December and that range is the world's first ever zero sugar zero carb wine. Though we definitely indulged with food that night, the drink was brilliant at only 373 calories for the full bottle! Though the calories are less than you might expect, the wine is made using the highest quality grapes so you still get all of the flavour and strength of regular wine but with no added nasties, sugar or carbs in the mix.

Just to give you a bit of background information about the brand, all SlimLine Wines are made by talented Dan Cusmano in Piedmont, a place where there is no other industry but wine. All bottles of wine are made from their own vineyards which are carefully situated to ensure you get the best product possible, and these were created for all of us who want to live a bit healthier but without compromising on our favourite things! I was so looking forward to opening this on Valentines and it didn't let me down. When I first tasted this I could really tell it was of high quality and clearly absolutely no compromise had been made on taste because it was just like any other sparkling wine I'd had before, just with far less calories. I always enjoy a glass of prosecco but as I don't reach for one too often, this felt like a real treat.

Bottles like this are so handy to have in on those days where you just need to relax and only wine will do and as there are four wines available in the range, you are sure to find one that is just right for you (they are all also vegan so no one has to miss out). The one I tried and knew would be great for me was the Super Sparkling White but they also do a Super Sparkling Rose and these are priced at £10.99 each. If you're not a prosecco fan then maybe Really Red or Crisp White could be for you, both of which are £8.99 a bottle.

I've been so impressed with Slimline Wine and wouldn't hesitate to order from them in future, I have my eyes on the sparkling rose next! This really was a brilliant addition to our Valentines and went so well with the meal we had planned. If you would like to try it out for yourself, you can buy online via their website, and here you'll also find more about the brand and you can read rave reviews from people just as impressed as me!

What do you think to zero calorie wines? Would you ever try something like this?
