Do you remember our shipment from California wine club last month? If you don’t, you can read all about it here. This was our second shipment so I had great expectations. California wine club sure didn’t let me down when this shipment arrived. Everything you needed for holiday gifting was already done. There was no need to wrap these or buy gift bags. It even came with a carrying tote to transport the wines to the recipient it was being gifted to.
Just like last month, my package came with Uncorked which is a magazine that has info behind the company and their wine plus other great articles. It is always great to know what you are drinking but even better to learn about the winery.
Our two wines we were able to review this month were Merlot and Chenin Blanc. The Chenin Blanc was my favorite. It has a light taste that is different from what I am used to but I still enjoyed it. The Merlot on the other hand was much more bitter than I would prefer but will be great for recipes that I can use on nights I want to mix it up (I watch a lot of food network).
This two month subscription review for the California Wine Club was a great opportunity to try new and different wines outside of my comfort zone. I will no longer limit myself to what I am used to. I would definitely gift this to my family and friends for the holiday and think is something you should all consider.
