It’s been like 8 degrees in Chicago the past few days and that means I retreat indoors in my new favorite sweatshirt + yoga pants.

However, this isn’t putting a halt to date nights + friend get togethers. Casual is the dress code + DELICIOUS is the food + drink code.

Bring nothing but yourself and your finest lounge wear, because we’re fancy + comfortable

Louis Jadot Macon-Villages Chardonnay



A meat + cheese plate with olive oil toasted bread*

Let’s talk wine. The mother of all beverages that pairs well with food. I’m all about a light white wine and Jadot went perfectly with cheeses + seafood. Seeing as I’m constantly on a shrimp + pasta kick, this was my ideal drink + eat.

Jadot provides amazing French red + white wines. Its great quality at a great price makes it the PERFECT pairing for date night or a wine night with friends. The Macon-Villages Chardonnay was crisp with floral and apple notes and came without a harsh aftertaste. My kind of wine. Plus, its a CROWD PLEASER. We all have our preferences on red or white, sweet or bitter. The Macon-Villages Chardonnay was a perfect balance and completed the meal.


What makes a date night or girls night a success is killer drinks, food worth seconds and great company.
