Everyone knows a Sharon.
The iconic wine mom, Sharon is the queen of sass, gossip, and going the extra mile in everything she does — sometimes even taking it a bit too far. It’s easy to hate Sharon, but in reality that’s because we’re all jealous of her “sipping through life” mentality. She’s strong. She’s blunt. She can double fist a California red and a glue gun as she finishes Timmy’s science fair poster (because you better believe Sharon’s going for the blue ribbon).
We all know a Sharon.

Maybe she’s behind you in the grocery store, filling her cart to the brim with magnums of Pinot Grigio while managing a screaming three year old. Or maybe Sharon’s the PTA president who rolls into the meeting after happy hour, armed to fight over who gets to direct the school play.
But above all, maybe there is a Sharon inside all of us — waiting for the perfect sip of Malbec to break free from the confines of her shell.
