Day 10 of focusing on my blessings brings me to wine. Specifically wine delivered to my door by California Wine Club.
Remember how much I loved receiving my monthly California Wine Club wine last year? Guess what? I have a two month Premier Club membership again!
I was like a kid at Christmas when my monthly shipment of California Wine Club came this month. Just ask the people I work with – I made them all envious when I showed them my surprise.
**By the way, you have to have someone 21 and older sign for the delivery, so choose a delivery address with 21+ year olds available to sign. For me that was work.
There’s the obvious reason I was excited. It’s wine after all. Delivered wine. To my door. Wine.
Plus it’s good wine. Great wine actually, but not break the budget expensive in order to get that level of quality. In fact it’s pretty darn reasonable.
This past month I received a Sauvignon Blanc and Tempranillo from Robledo family winery. As you know, I’m a pretty firm white wine fan, but this red Tempranillo blew me away. I loved it! I’m going to totally stalk CWC and see if I can buy a case of it. Smooth, tasty, not oaky (I am not an oaky or dry fan, personally). Incredible.
But beyond the convenience of having wine delivered to my door and the obvious benefit of having quality wine, I really enjoy the surprise of seeing what I’m getting each month and the motivation to expand my wine palate. I would never have known I liked this red if not for the Wine Club.
Plus, although I am a very happy wine drinker, I don’t really fit the image I have of wine connoisseurs. I couldn’t really tell you if a wine has legs or body or how the flavor is affected if it comes from the xyz region versus the abc one . All I really know is whether I like it or not and California Wine Club’s goal of taking the “stuffy” out of wine really works for me personally.
