The holiday season is all around us. With Halloween and Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas soon ahead there`s a lot of craziness going on! I always like to try and begin my holiday shopping early so I donâ€™t have to worry about trying to find last minute gifts. Unfortunately now is what I would consider "almost too late" since it is the last day of November - 26 days until Christmas! One place I was really impressed with was California Wine Club (www.cawineclub.com)Â
who offers up excellent wine for either yourself or a friend! Not only did they send me a few wines to try for myself, but they are offering up 2 bottles to one lucky reader (must be 18+ for this one!)
Who is California Wine Club? Well basically theyâ€™re a wine company that sends out a couple bottles of wine each month to itâ€™s club members. Members have the options of 1 red and 1 white wine, 2 white wines, or 2 red wines. The choice is yours. Â
They started a club in 1990 and over the years have grown simply by word or mouth. They recommend great wines to friends every day and thatâ€™s what their hope is with their company: to recommend great wines to you!
You may remember back in October I did a previous post on California Wine Club
and this time I received 2 more wines to try along with the go ahead to share the experience with one special reader. Since my husband and I are still considering ourselves new to the wine world we are still trying to discover the wines that we like that impress our taste buds, which is why I wanted to take part in this review. So far the one wine I found I enjoy is Moscoto. I like the really sweet wines. Surprisingly though I sort of liked both the wines we had received once again. I`m starting to question whether if wine is right for us or not though?
Last time we tried both of the wines at room temperature. This time we decided to chill the wines before hand to see if that impacted our opinion on it. The white wine was once again a bit more favorable to me than the red. It has a bit more of a flavor that I liked, a bit more sweet I guess is the accurate description. The red wine, on the other hand, had a bit more of a dry flavor, which wasnâ€™t very favorable to us. In fact, we are discovering red wines just may not be our thing through all these trial and error wine tasting periods. While neither was a favorite, I did find the white wine was the next wine closer to my flavor taste buds. Remember, I like mine really sweet, Iâ€™m still learning wines and I donâ€™t even know which foods are best to eat with wines! Sad, but very true. Although I do hear that cheese is a great side factor!
All in all my experience with California Wine Club in itself was excellent. The customer service was great, the shipping was quick each time and everything was very well packaged each time to ensure a safe delivery. The wines they do send are of high quality and would be great for any wine lover. If you`re new to wine they are also a great way to get introduced to new wines so you can discover what your favorite wine taste is. As we are discovering wine is not for everyone, but even in that case you can always find at least ONE that will work out for you! I know I plan to still keep my taste buds open to new opportunities as should you!
