Wine Wednesday Challenge: Chateau Ste. Michelle vs. Kendall-Jackson

Kendall-Jackson and Chateau Ste. Michelle

In honor of Wine Wednesday, I decided to try my very FIRST wine video. I have never been particularly comfortable with seeing myself on screen so the video is pretty rough, but cheers to trying something new! I know it is World Malbec Day, but I didn’t have any at the house. SO. Today’s Wine Wednesday challenge was between Chateau Ste. Michelle and Kendall-Jackson Chardonnays.

Lessons Learned:

1. RELAX…Easier said than done. I’ll have to turn the screen off next time so I can’t see myself stumble!

2. Invest in a video camera. It was difficult to show the wine because I was recording from my laptop. Videos at home would be easier with a dedicated space with decent lighting. I’ll see what I can do.

3. Recording after work with hair in a bun and glasses may not be the best “look”. At least it was the real me 🙂

4. Have a rough script. Apparently, I like the words  “very”, “really”, “ummm”, “a lot”, and “apricot”. I even meant to say pineapple for Kendall Jackson and I still said apricot. Ummmmm….

5. Let viewers know the price. I drink wines from all price points so that would have been helpful (Btw, Chateau Ste. Michelle is roughly $10 and Kendall-Jackson $12 retail).

6. Interject a personal story or a picture in the video. I think it would be more interesting.

7. Try again next week!

    Great job on the video! It is tough to make a video – I just did my very first video too and I also felt awkward and said ” umm” a lot. But I’m sure it will get easier. And you look great, by the way! I think it’s a great idea to compare two wines and your descriptions of the wines were very helpful. And I completely agree about white wines being served too cold! I don’t like them ice-cold either, it really does mask the flavor of the wine.

    As they say in Hungary – egészségedre! That means cheers!
