The thing about moms and wine? Totally true. There are some days when there is just nothing better than a warm bath and a glass of wine. We love our children, but they sure are exhausting. And so it is with sadness that I say this is my last review of the California Wine Club. I sure have enjoyed having wine delivered to. my. door. for the past two months. And I have learned a lot!
For instance, I always thought I was a tried and true red wine lady. White just wasn’t for me. I even sipped on red wine at my wedding! Can you imagine if someone had bumped into me? After tasting 4 different wines (2 red, 2 white) in the past few weeks, I realized that I don’t hate white wine at all! I just didn’t know how to choose it! This month’s Chenin Blanc from Daniel Gehrs is definitely getting an encore performance in this house. I am still no expert, but it was just delightful! I had never heard of Chenin Blanc before and I am really excited to have found a white wine I can enjoy. I did enjoy last month’s Sauvignon Blanc, but I definitely have a new favorite.
I also realized that I prefer Merlot over Tempranillo when it comes to reds. And I am making a note of it. Do you ever find yourself at the store wondering what that wine was you loved so much only to end up with the pretty bottle that didn’t taste good? Happens. all. the. time. If you are a club member, your selections are saved so you can reorder the wines you love!
One more place you will see California Wine Club is in my upcoming gift guide for moms! It’s a little pricey, but even just one month would bring a smile to any wine lover’s face! It’s really fun to try new wines and get outside of the grocery store routine.
