Last month, I was introduced to the greatness of the California Wine Club. I have to say that the very idea of someone selecting quality wines for me and shipping them to my door is appealing on its own, but the folks at California Wine Club (see how I liked my first shipment) really know their business. They pay attention to detail and really seem to want us to know the who, the what, the when, the where and the why of the wines they include in club shipments. I’m becoming spoiled, having this wonderfulness brought to my door.
Each package arrives very carefully protected from breakage or the elements, and each includes a monthly newsletter giving information and history about not only the wines in the box but also the wineries they are from. Not sure you want to enjoy your wines immediately? Don’t worry- they’ll let you know how long you can keep your wine and still enjoy it. This is key information for those of us who are kind of (or completely) clueless about what wines to buy to go with which foods, occasions, etc., particularly with the holidays upon us and wine being such a great gift for a host or hostess. Don’t forget they have a free app you can get that helps with these decisions (I have it). [click to continue…]
