As we wind down Hot Flash Month, I was excited to discover a fun website/blog: http://hotflashwines.com/blog/. Just like me, you are probably wondering what the heck this site might offer? Well, it’s just as billed—wine for hot flashes, along with other menopausal moods. Below is how the group of women behind the site describe what they have to offer:
Why not celebrate, laugh at, and even make fun of the challenges that menopause brings? Why not enjoy life together and drink wine together, enjoying the ride? Our goal was to create a series of wines and wine related products that highlight a woman in the midst of real life, struggling with a hot flash but taking it in stride. We think that should bring delight to a lot of women, and probably even a few men along the way!
Along with a peer group of female friends close to her age, Mollie found herself irritated by the images put forth of women that would indicate that being skinny and dieting incessantly is the only way to enjoy life as a woman. Her philosophy is that you embrace who you are and what you’ve been given, and that living healthy is about loving life! Over a series of wine drinking events with friends, Mollie and her “sisters” came to the decision that while everyone else is dreading menopause and hot flashes, they would go into it full speed ahead, take it on the chin, and keep enjoying life, especially wine!
Personally, I think their business model is ingenious. And, I love their attitudes! Let’s face it, it’s hard to make hot flashes (and, menopause) sounds fun. Their slogan is: Worried About Menopause? Have a MenoParty Instead. Offered wines include, Covers Off Chardonnay, Mood Swing Merlot and Zin-O-Pause. I plan to order a couple of bottles and will report back. Note that we have no relationship with hotflashwines.com. It just seemed like a fun “commercial” break this month. We promote natural and simple solutions for menopause and what is more natural and simple than a good glass of wine??
