Wine intake is usually what you hide from your nutritionist. But, what happens when the nutritionist decides to start making wine with your overall health in mind? Well, it turns out to be pretty great for everyone.
Born with a passion for fitness, Christine spent her childhood as an award-winning competitive gymnast. As an athlete, she quickly discovered the connection between healthy eating and healthy body and mind. She also knew that most people, while not trained professional athletes, want to be healthy and look and feel their best.
Christine wanted to help her clients reach their goals in ways that were attainable, rewarding, and (gasp!) even fun. She loved how her clients became so invested in their health, not just to look good, but to truly support their communities and families. She obtained a Master’s degree in Nutrition and became a certified nutritionist.
For the past 20 years, nutritionist Christine Fitzgerald heard the question,“Why do I have to give up wine in order to lose weight?”
She knew there were a lot of chemicals and sugars added to wine, causing excess bloat, weight gain, and feelings of sluggishness. She told her clients to ditch the wine, but that wasn’t the right answer.
Christine dove into creating a healthy wine that her clients could drink on any diet, from keto to vegan!
SmartVine begins with lab-tested, hand-picked California grapes, and enhances the experience by infusing it with four organic key nutrients, Christine’s “day after remedy” to help rid of the side effects of typical wine; weight gain, feelings of headaches, sluggishness, and bloating.
SmartVine follows the principles of a natural and sustainable winemaking process; free of added sugar and chemicals.
In fact, SmartVine is certified 100% Glyphosate free ( it is the ONLY wine in the world to hold that distinction). Beyond being free of Glyphosate (and the 72+ other chemicals currently allowed and found in wines) SmartVine is certified vegan, gluten-free, and Keto friendly.
When she is not making wine, or supporting her clients in their health journeys, you can find Christine water skiing in the summer, snow skiing in the winter, or taking a road trip with her husband, daughter and dog Sugar.
