""For the final girl left standing when the last drop of wine hits the floor."⠀ ⠀ Final Girl Wines are made by husband + wife team Anna + Peter, who came together over a love of horror + wine. They say the wine is "Serious + unique, yet fun + unpretentious. For wine + horror lovers." The horror genre doesn't really resonate with me, but when I found their label on Vinebase, the wines sounded so good, ship to IN, and had a cool vibe, so I decided to give them a shot.⠀ ⠀ I am SO glad I did!⠀ ⠀ Since I don't watch horror movies, I didn't have a frame of reference for who a "final girl" is...but after a little research, I am fascinated + in love with this branding. A Vox article begins: "You know her when you see her. You relate to her. You root for her. You want to see her do well. Well, you actually just want to see her live."⠀ ⠀ The Final Girl is a horror film trope referring to the last girl alive to confront a killer. While she is first presented through the male (killer) point of view, as movies progresses, the narrative turns + the audience begins to identify with the girl. There's typically a predetermined formula for how the final girl survives + what traits she has, but more modern day films have begun to flip that script + have given final girls more awareness + agency. Vox ends by saying: "Today's Final Girls tell their own stories and control their own destinies (even if it means dying). They're badass. And that's even more of a reason to root for them.”💪🏻 ⠀ I got the Petite Verdot and the Red Blend - can't wait to open up the next bottle!⠀"
"Peter and Anna are making some great wines that I love pairing with food. Below are some of my favorites."
"Final Girl Wines has some of my absolute favorite reds I’ve tried in the past year. Their Petit Verdot is out of this world, and the Tethered Red Blend is unforgettable. Also obsessed with the rosé and the Chenin Blanc too. Do yourself a favor and don’t miss out on these killer wines. [C1B92146-67A2-4ED8-9C31-2EFDFA2C9E83.jpeg]"
"Woman Owned | Female Wine Maker ✨ Those of you who know me, know that I love unique varietals and unexpected wines. I initially purchased wine from Final Girl because they have a strikingly beautiful orange Viognier and I haven't had one before. I ordered one of each of their wines because I have FOMO and am always worried that the wine I don't get might be the best one. The Petit Verdot was not for me, BUT their Chenin Blanc blew me away! It is SPECTACULAR and a MUST TRY. Absolutely delicious paired with sushi and would also be great with vegetarian meals like an herby salad. I haven't tried the orange Viognier yet, but I will update here when I do. "
"Making wine fun but still doing the work to create a beautiful end product!"
"Husband and wife team operating in Santa Barbara county with unique varietals for Central Coast including Chenin Blanc. Don't let the sharp knives or horror movie screams scare you off."
