Last year, I received an email from a friend of my friend Adam Vourvoulis, a well-known and liked wine profesh/wine raver here in Los Angeles. Her name was Ashley Ragovin, the founder of a new wine delivery service Pour This. She wanted to chat wine, and because she was friends with Adam, I was like, "Sure!"
As it turned out, we got along better than a Scribe Cabernet and steak frites. Not only do we both love true crime, 90's hip-hop, teenagers on Vine and believe that cheddar cheese is absolutely underrated, but we share a deep love of wine. And not just any wine. We are both very passionate about small wine producers that are craft-driven with distinct & unique personalities and respectable farming practices, that are also 110% fucking delicious. It was a very "DUH! TOTALLY!" moment when we decided to collaborate on a Marissa A. Ross x Pour This wine box.
Over the years, you guys (my readers, hi, hello, love you) have constantly asked how to get my favorite wines. And this is your chance! You're going to get the Scar of the Sea Chardonnay Pétillant-Naturel, the Le Sot de l'Ange "Rouge G" Gamay, and a gorgeous new Italian babe, Du Cropio "Serra Sanguigna" Calabria Rosso.
What can I say? My box is delicious.
And it's going to be delivered straight to your door.
All innuendos aside, this is important to me because this is an opportunity for me to directly share my passion with you. It's no secret that my work focuses on these types of small production wines, and I know they're not always easy to find. But I believe that once you have some of them, you'll understand why I am so enthusiastic and dedicated to these styles of wine.
I've been dreaming of being able to do something like this for a long time, and I am so grateful that Ashely & Pour This has made this dream come true.
I hope you order it and I hope you love it as much as I do.
So click on over to Pour This and grab your box! And while you're at it, read the really fun interview I did with Ashley on the same page. Shopping and reading! About me! Two of my favorite things in one place!
