I absolutely love a good bottle of wine.  I love to open a fresh bottle, smell the cork, let it breath a little and savor every sip.  But with three kids and not a whole lot of time to stroll up and down the aisles of a wine shop, I am lacking in what is new.  So I am super excited to learn about the California Wine Club!

California Wine ClubThe California Wine Club is a great “inner circle” that you can join that will send you wines monthly. Unlike the rows and rows of wines at a store, you get the expertise and hand picked wines of the mom and pop wineries that actually exist in California.  Instead of bulk wine that is mass produced, you get the wines where the actual winery was traveled to, the wines tasted and then selected for excellence.  So you really are supporting California Wineries and not a mass distributor.  They even give you a map of the Wineries for which they choose the wines so that you can visit the same ones when you travel wine country!

For more than 20 years, the California Wine Club has succeeded with word of mouth and a reputation for choosing the best wines offered.  Joining is easy and right now, you can get $1 shipping, 10 wines under $10 AND over 200 other wines on sale!  What a great gift to hand out for the Holidays!

I was the lucky recipient of some really good wines from wineries I had not heard of.  In fact, I received a bottle of a wine blend I had never even heard of!  From Robledo Family Winery in Napa Valley, I enjoyed the robust and clean flavor of the 2009 Tempranillo and the 2008 Lake County Sauvignon Blanc.

The Sauvignon Blanc is a 3 time Gold Medal winner for a reason.  This refreshing, crisp wine has an easy to drink flavor that leaves the pallet feeling cool and satisfied.  I am not a huge white wine drinker and I loved this wine.  It has a hint of elegance with the comfort of a Friday night on the couch.  It is definitely going to be a fixture in my wine selection.
The Tempranillo is a blend I have never heard of.  Created from black grapes, this unique wine has hints of cinnamon and a flavor I could not pick up immediately.  I had to look it up to realize that it was the rich flavor of blackberry that sent my taste buds into wine heaven.  I just love it.  It is an easy drink perfect for that medium rare steak or a chat with your gal pals over dessert.  I can not wait to order more of this from California Wine Club.
