A #LiveUncorked moment with FGFS: drink and draw with Campo Viejo

Just last week, Campo Viejo posed the question to us as part of their #LiveUncorked campaign, “how do you express yourself and your passion” by living uncorked? Immediately when us gals at Fat Girl Food Squad thought about what living uncorked meant to us, we knew what we needed to do: gather around for our very own drink and draw!

It was a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon when Yuli, Vanessa and myself gathered on my backyard balcony with paints, pencil crayons, mini canvases and more.  Round the table, we poured ourselves glasses of the 2009 Rioja Reserva, compliments of Campo Viejo. This deep-red wine has a soft and velvety mouth feel with tastes of sour cherries, oak and vanilla. The bottle, which retails at the LCBO for $17.95, made for a balanced, fresh and easy drinkable summer wine.

As of recently, a lot of stories have been released in the media about how colour therapy and art can actually help adults to relieve stress, tension and sleep better.  If our drink and draw session was a testament to anything, us babes had the opportunity to share some hilarious moments together while getting to decompress with one another over our crazy work weeks and lives over a glass of Campo Viejo.  It’s not everyday you get to do these things, but when you do and you’re surrounded by friends – you really can’t complain.

What really became abundantly clear to the three of us throughout our drink and draw: it wasn’t about the quality of the work but the wildness, thought and imagination that was going into each piece. The greatest thing about it: we had one another there to support each other. Between the Campo Viejo, snacks and the convivial atmosphere – our own personal Fat Girl Food Squad drink and draw session was way better than any other serious class and a perfect end to the week.
