Between Galentine’s Day, Valentine’s Day, National Wine Day and all of the other reasons to celebrate our one true love this month (*cough*wine*cough*), the captions centered around wine have been at an all time high lately. If you are like me, you assume every day should be celebrated as National Wine Day but unfortunately the internet tells us that that is not the case.
For the rest of us that deem every day a wine day here are some cute, punny caption ideas to push that Instagram photo over the top. Maximum likeage material right here ladies!! Whether you are celebrating Galentine’s Day with a girls night in and your favorite bottle of Llano Estacado Signature Roséor getting that perfect sunset and “cheersing” shot with Llano Estacado Pinot Grigio, there is a perfect Instagram caption for that.
It’s wine o’clock somewhere
Save water, drink wine
Working nine to wine
Let’s go wine tasting on the couch
Wine is my spirit animal
Coffee keeps me going until it’s acceptable to drink wine
Love the wine you’re with
I could really go for a glass of wine and my own private island right about now
Gone with the wine
I enjoy long romantic walks down the wine aisle
Wine improves with age. I improve with wine.
Oops! Did I buy wine instead of milk again?
Wine is my Valentine
Wine-one-one my glass is empty
In dog wines I only had one
Everything happens for a riesling
I’ll be there in a prosecco!
Go chard or go home
Sauvignon blanc out
Today I’m going to be as useless as the “T” in Pinot Grigio
It’s ok to drink white wine after Labor Day
White wine all the time
Slay all day then cabernet
Red, wine and booze
You had me at merlot
How merlot can you go?
Exercise makes you more attractive. So does Pinot Noir. Your choice.
Roses are red, so is my wine. Refill my glass and I’ll be just fine.
Rosé all day
Will you accept this rosé?
Rosé can you see?
Rosé > Roses
Stop and drink the rosé
On Wednesdays we drink pink
Partner in wine
Tonight’s forecast… 99% chance of wine
Cheers to pour decisions
Any friend of wine is a friend of mine
Wine flies when you are having fun
Our book club only reads wine labels
My wine or die
Roses are red. Violets are fine. Let’s order pizza and i’ll bring the wine.
Wine a little, laugh a lot
The bottle says “four servings” but my heart says one
Sip me baby one more time
Hardest decision today: glass or bottle
#WCW stands for wine couch Wednesday right?
We’re on an all grape diet
If you do use any of these captions for Instagram I’d love it if you tag me so I can share in all of the wine shenanigans that I wish I was partaking in with you! I so wish I could have a glass of wine and chat about all of the things will ALL of you! Maybe one day we will figure out how to make that happen but until then cheers to it always being wine o’clock ladies!
The wine pictured in today’s post is my favorite bottle of rosé, the Llano Estacado Signature Rosé. It is my go to for girl’s nights and honestly all year round. I did a post here sharing how I use it to make Watermelon Frosé Margaritas (HOLY YUM!) during the warmer months. I might be bias because it’s a Texas wine and I’m a proud Texan, but then again i’ve tried a lot of Texas wines and Llano Estacado wines win my heart over every time. Not going to lie the price tag does too. Your girl is balling on a budget over here! If you’d like to try out any of their wines they are offering my followers 20% off with code CHICTOME20 on their wines. All are available on http://www.llanowine.com.
*Thank you Llano Estacado Winery for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.*
If you are wondering what happened to day 6, it got away from me on vacation! Don’t worry there is still a new giveaway but I am still working on catching up on gift guides! The day 6 giveaway is for a T3 curling wand trio! This is the curling wand that I use every day and get tons of questions about. I recently did a tutorial on how to curl your hair in less than 5 minutes using this wand! Find it here. It is a splurge item so I am excited to be giving one away. Enter the giveaway HERE.
The day 7 giveaway is for the wine lover. I am giving away a 3 month subscription to Winc wine club as well as a $75 gift card to The Daily Tay’s graphic tee shop. Enter the giveaway HERE.
Theres no hiding what a huge wino I am on my little corner of the internet. I’m not one to shy away from a glass (er, bottle) of cab any given night of the week. So when my college girlfriends talked about getting together for a reunion, Fredericksburg (aka Texas wine country) was at the top of our list. I’ve been to the “real” wine country, but this was my first time to experience Texas wine country and all of it’s glory. By the end of the trip, we all agreed that it would become an annual trip as we fell in love with the little city and of course, the endless amounts of wine and girl talk.
Where to Stay
I highly suggest renting a house for the weekend. If you are heading up for a girls weekend or wanting to go in on a place with multiple people, a house is the way to go. Fredericksburg offers many cute options that make the trip so much more enjoyable than staying in a hotel. We stayed at “The Aqua Door“ which proved to be everything we hoped for and more! We were able to spread out comfortably and truly felt like we were at home. Most places are between $4-$600 a night (cheaper during the week) so split between multiple people, it is well worth it! Our house came equipped with boardgames, a hot tub, outdoor games, cable, a piano, and several other amenities that made it a home away from home and a real treat. The owner has several other properties (found here), all with different colored front doors, that are perfect for your next girls weekend, bachelorette party, or couples retreat. I cannot say enough great things about the owner, all of her recommendations, attention to little details, and the overall house aesthetic. Just look what I mean 🙂
There are several tasting rooms on the main strip but if you are wanting to go to some of the wineries a little bit further out, I suggest taking the Wine Shuttle that runs to all of the wineries and picks up every 15 minutes. It is just $24.99 and well worth the money to not drink and drive. Our shuttle driver cranked up the music and we had a grand old time!
Grape Creek Vineyard– Our personal favorite! A tasting is $18 and you get to pick out 6 wines. The majority of us are red wine lovers, and enjoyed the Viognier and Bellissimo wines. We also stayed for lunch in their dining room and split a bottle of wine. We were given several free glasses of wine which might have been why it was our favorite 🙂
Becker Vineyards– A beautiful vineyard that also has lavender fields. Perfect for that vineyard Instagram picture (see below). There is normally live music on the weekends with a gorgeous area that overlooks the vineyard. Perfect area to split a bottle of wine. My personal favorite was the Reserve Malbec.
4.0 Cellars– Calling all wine and cheese lovers. This winery offers a wine and cheese pairing tasting for just $25. If you want to cut the cheese (hehe), a wine tasting is just $15. Friday evenings offer live music and you are welcome to pack snacks to enjoy on the patio.
Where to Eat
Fredericksburg has a lot of German history and heritage, which makes for great dining! Several of our meals were German because who can pass up a schnitzel and beer to combat all of the wine? Not us!
Otto’s– If you are looking for a really good German inspired meal, all 6 of us LOVED this place. Each one of us got something different and ended up sharing everything because every dish was out of this world! Some of our favorites included the Ricotta Gnochi, Wurst Platte, and Pork Shank. The prices are reasonable for a nice dinner. They are also open for Sunday Brunch. I do suggest arriving early or making a reservation as the place is very small.
The Auslander-If you are wanting a cheap, authentic German meal, this is the place! If the weather is nice enough, there is usually a pretty good sized crowd enjoying live music and throwing back oversized beers.
Sozial Haus– A quaint spot that has great pizza. Monday nights they have half price pizzas and bottles of wine.
Hondos– An old spot where you will find many locals. The food is nothing extraordinary but the atmosphere is fun!
Vaudeville– This is a nicer place and reservations are recommended. Even if you don’t get a chance to eat here, I suggest checking out the courtyard and little shop that is attached to it. Both are amazing! I have heard the restaurant is a must do if you have the time (and money!) to do so.
August E’s– Another great fine dining experience. We were there during the week and attended “Thai Tuesday” night. While the price is a little high for thai, the portions are HUGE and easy to share. They also have sushi and steaks.
What to Do
Besides the obvious, there are plenty of other things to do in Fredericksburg! It is such a cute town to explore and small enough to walk most places if you are staying at a house that is close to the main strip.
Walk/shop the main strip- There are over 100 small shops, tasting rooms, markets, and restaurants along the main strip. Be aware that almost everything closes down early in Fredericksburg so to do this earlier in the day. Most place close by 6.
Tasting rooms- If you are just wanting to grab a drink before dinner or do not want to drive out to the wineries, several of the vineyards have tasting rooms on the main strip.
Lincoln St.- A cute indoor/outdoor bar that is perfect for drinks before or after dinner and one of the only places that stays open later.
Yellow Door Studio– If you have already done a wine and painting class, then you know how fun they are. If you have not, now is your time! The art class is BYOB and is so much fun! These classes run about $45/person and are a great keepsake for a girls or bachelorette weekend!

I have had a major crush on graphic tees as of recently. Pretty much anything that has to do with wine is most likely already in my closet or is sitting in an online shopping cart somewhere. The latter is a habit I’m trying to break because after a couple of glasses of wine, those online shopping carts tend to empty themselves…
Speaking of wine, I have some exciting news concerning this topic that you will most certainly want to be following me on Instagram for. Let’s just say it’s going to be a wine-filled week! For all of my Houston people, Wine and Food Week kicks off Monday June 5th and runs through the 11th. If you are looking for a good time, make sure to check this out. You can purchase tickets here.
Love this trend but don’t want to splurge? Target has a GREAT selection and they are always under $15! Here are some more options at different price points.
Happy Friday friends! I’d like to make a toast to the weekend and that your glass doesn’t run dry. I’m pretty sure it’s no secret by now that it’s almost always wine o’clock around my house, it’s called priorities people!! These make awesome gifts to friends or yourself 😉 I have 4 and 6 and I think 2 would make an excellent “just because it’s Friday” present to myself!
