According to the Wine Institute, women represent 52 percent of the adult population but they purchase nearly 60 percent of wine consumed at home in the United States. How much of that is enjoyed after a day of soccer practice, spaghetti-strewn walls, and two-hour bath times? A lot.
Wine Society Of India Research also indicates that women don't look to wine scores or critics when making their decisions. They look at the label or a winery's philosophy.
India Winery As such, a slew of mommy-themed labels have hit the market. While they're not for everyone -- some people find them condescending -- you can't deny their gift-giving appeal. Many are like greeting cards stuck to a bottle. And not all of them are about sleek marketing.

Red Wine India MANY WINERY OWNERS have made large fortunes, but few could be called larger than life. The late Jess Jackson earned both the characterization and the billions thanks to his business acumen and his unique personal style. He amassed tens of thousands of acres in five countries, raced some of the most famous thoroughbreds in modern history and created Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay—a wine so successful it's not just a brand, it's a wine archetype.
Wine To India I first met Mr. Jackson and his wife, Barbara Banke, almost six years ago. Mr. Jackson had stipulated that our meeting should take place at their farm in Kentucky. At the time, Mr. Jackson was nearly as focused on racing as he was on wine. He'd bought a large stable in Lexington and named it "Stonestreet"—the same name as his winery in the northern Alexander Valley of Sonoma County, Calif. (Stonestreet was Mr. Jackson's middle name as well.) The year of our meeting was particularly propitious for Stonestreet stables; their star horse Curlin won the Preakness and the Jockey Gold Cup, and was named the 2007 Horse of the Year.

Red Wine India The no-dosage method of making sparkling wine is a difficult balancing act. In ordinary sparkling wine, a sweet solution, or dosage, is added at the end of the production process to offset the acidity of the wine. Omitting it can sometimes produce a harshly austere wine, but when done properly the wine can be exceptionally pure and precise. This is a superb no-dosage sparkling wine, made entirely of chardonnay by a tiny estate in the Mâconnais. It’s creamy yet light, dry, straightforward and graceful.

Fancy having Brangelina, Drew Barrymore and Dan Aykroyd over for dinner? No problem, they'll even bring the wine.
India Wines OK, maybe the stars themselves won't show up, but their wines will appear with just a wave of a credit card. You might start with an aperitif of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's new Miraval rose, move on to a light pasta dish served with Barrymore Wine's pinot grigio, then perhaps finish up with a glass of Aykroyd's cabernet franc ice wine for dessert.
