The answer? Wine contains chemicals and sugar that ruin dietary goals. She knew that symptoms of bloat, weight gain, headaches, and feelings of sluggishness were the result. Eventually, she became dissatisfied with her “no pain no gain” approach to wine and its relationship to fitness and nutrition.
She felt that her clients shouldn’t have to experience the guilt surrounding excess calories or the horrible "day after" symptoms that came along after enjoying wine the night before.
There needed to be a healthy solution. She thought, "how could clients enjoy wine without it destroying all the hard work they put into a healthy and active lifestyle?"
She dove into researching which wines fit her standards for a ‘healthy and clean wine’ and realized she needed to create her own because it just didn’t exist! Christine partnered with award-winning winemaker Steve Clifton to create Smartvine Wine in a rosé, white, and Malbec red. Together they dove into creating a wine that is certified 100% Glyphosate free (aka the pesticide RoundUp)—and it is the ONLY wine in the world to hold that distinction.
