DonnaDaVine.com and TheFamilyGroove Toast Moms Nationwide
As any mom will attest to: it’s always wine-thirty somewhere. Yes, with motherhood comes the requisite baby bag, BPA-free bottles, over-priced stroller, organic cotton onesies, more baby gear than you can shake a stick at and one sanity-saving device that swoops it in at the end of a long day to gently ease Mommy’s aching, uh, well, Mommy’s aching everything.
What is this magical panacea, you ask? Why, it’s wine, of course. A glass a day (though recent findings recommend keeping it to just four a week for health reasons—everything in moderation) keeps the crazy at bay. So what better partner for TheFamilyGroove.com, an online magazine that reaches 160,000-plus moms a month in 122 countries, than an online wine store like DonnaDaVine.com.
Together the two women-run businesses have grape expectations for their union, including wine tasting and wine pairing tips, picks of the season, hostess gift selections, discounts and giveaways. Currently, DonnaDaVine.com is providing a beautiful bubbly for TheFamilyGroove.com’s “Champagne and Cupcakes” party series, thrown for the site’s nine moms’ groups partners. Women from Marin County, California, to Clarksburg, Maryland, to Bucks County, Georgia, to Wellesley, Massachusetts, are sipping the life fantastic at these special moms’-night-out events.
Says TheFamilyGroove.com Editor-in-Chief Jillian Swartz, “What I love about the donna da vine site is how down-to-earth and approachable it is—no airs at all. It’s informative, easy to use and written in a very familiar, friendly voice—almost as if your best girlfriend was giving you the scoop on her favorite bottle. I also like the fact that it’s owned by two sisters. Their passion for their business is palpable and their spirit, vis-a-vis the spirit of the site, is nothing short of intoxicating. When you’re on the site, you’ve got to check out the party packs, especially the one with four wines made by four women-run wineries. We are moms, here us clink—eh, uh, after the kids are asleep and only in moderation, of course.”
donna da vine is a fine wine boutique in the hip Boerum Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn. Inspired by their mother, Donna Becker, owners Alyssa and Jenifer Becker opened up Brooklyn’s newest gem in the winter of 2008. The shop features varietals from every corner of the globe; from New York to New Zealand, from the south of France to South Africa. Oprah added donna da vine’s “bubblelicious” wine pack to her “O List” in December 2009. With the success of donna da vine under their belts, the sisters just opened a beer and cheese shop, da vine provisions, next door to their ultra hip flagship sip shop.
