I'm Lena Chen, a writer, activist, and media producer who's been called a "skank" (by Bill O'Reilly) and "a small Asian woman" (by The New York Times). My favorite part of my workday is the hate mail.For the unlikely story that is my life, read on.
Red wine give you headaches? Can’t tell the difference between boxed or corked? Come to think of it, don’t actually like the taste of wine? Prefer juice or soda or even virgin cocktails?*
This is your kind of drink, kid: BRACHETTO.
Except for really sweet Rieslings (and 80% of Rieslings are not sweet enough), I generally do not like wine. I don’t drink red at all and maybe have white once a month. Brachetto, however, was made for people like me. It’s essentially sparkling fruit juice, which encompasses both my love of fruit and my love of sparkles, hurrah!
* Disclaimer: Since all these characteristics disqualify me from claiming any wine expertise, this is likely the only wine recommendation I’ll ever make.
