amorosa bella.

October 27, 2009

Amorosa Bella is an online luxury marketplace that just launched.  A sensual shop in the online world…. And before you get your mind in the gutter, it is a different kind of sensual shop.

According to their website, the word “sensual” literally means “of the senses” – the unseen energy that permeates all things.

Their unique store sells lifestyle products for all of your senses: sight, sound, smell, touch, taste and intuition, which includes eBooks, soy candles, sensual art, music, lingerie and, of course, wine.  This is where I come along.  The woman in charge of the three original featured wines is none-other than Ziggy the Wine Gal, a legend in the wine world, fellow pinot noir lover and the only other person I know that attends Happy Hour more than I do.  She custom blended the 2008 Russian River Pinot Noir andChardonnay and the 2008 Mendocino County Sparkling Wine.  All with less than 100 cases each.  Check out the blog post about how Ziggy got involved and how she makes people’s wine wishes come true (I know she has made some of mine come true).

This past Monday I had the pleasure of being invited to a kick off party at the house of Charlyn Belluzzo, the owner of the online site, where we were pampered with wine, cocktails, conversation, private pleasures and hand massages with oil dripped from exclusive Amorosa Bella candles made from 100% pure soy oil.   Yeah, candles that drip into massage oil!  Needless to say, the party was amazing.

I haven’t even gotten to the food…. Cheese, cauliflower spread and some meat concoction from Christopher Greenwald, owner of  Bay Laurel Culinary, a local chef, instructor and the guy who will bring back to the food cart in Sonoma County.  Oh, and now The Sensual Chef, according to Ziggy.  And for dessert, mini Sift Cupcakery cupcakes which made Liza from Brix Chicks and me giggle!

The three wines were everything I had hoped for and more.  The bubbles were not too overpowering, the chardonnay was an amazing strawberry flavor with a creamy mouth feel that still managed to be light and the pinot noir had the characteristics that a good Russian River Valley pinot should. These three amazing blends definitely live up to their sensual reputation.

When ordering a bottle or three online make sure to purchase the silk gift bag because it comes with these adorable wine charms in the shape of their logo or for those not “in-the-know” as a heart.

This kick-off party was just the start for Amorosa Bella and they will be doing many more events just like this one all over the country…. Make sure not to miss it, and if you are told to visit the most sensual room in the house, make sure you do so!

    I love soy massage candles, they work so well. It creates the perfect amount of warmth for the massage oil without being sticky or anything.
