Hello, my name is Murphy, and I really love wine. Whether it's a glass of Pinot Nior, Sauvignon Blanc, or even a little Rosé in the Summer months, there's no doubt that wine's one of my favorite ways to kick back and relax after a long week. The only issue with my hobby? As I get older, the headaches that come with a glass or two of red have really started to set me back the following morning. To sum up: I get tired. I get cranky. I need Advil.
On the heels of one such occasion, I got a blowout with my friend Emily who works in public relations, and after hearing me complain about how my body has begun to fail me at the ripe age of 26, she offered me a unique opportunity: to try out The Wand by PureWine ($20 for 8 wands). According to the packaging, it's a nifty little invention that takes the histamines and sulfite preservatives — aka the substances that make you feel crummy in the morning — out of your glass of vino.
After getting a sample from Emily, I gave the Wine Wands a whirl (literally) while hanging out at home on a Saturday night. I had Precana — when you go to your Catholic church and talk about getting married for eight hours — the following morning, so this product really needed to work. After all, there's nothing that takes the wind out of your sails quite like being hungover in church.
