I have been enjoying receiving wines from the California Wine company, because of the convenience and variety.Â Each month they find a small award winning limited production California vineyards to provide unique and carefully selected wines shipped directly to your house.
This month the selections were from the Daniel Gehrs Winery, and were a 2011 White HIlls Vineyard Chenin and a 2009 Central Coast Merlot.Â Merlot is one of my favorite wines, since it has a deep rich flavor that is fruity but not sweet.Â Merlot goes well with all beef dishes, and I paired it with Beef Shortribs in onion gravy.
The Chenin Blanc is a fruit crisp white wine, which will go perfectly with turkey â€“ which we are planning for Christmas dinner.Â Wine makes a wonderful Christmas present, either shipped to someone far away, or taken as a hostess gift to a Christmas event.
If you like wine but donâ€™t have the time or knowledge to always pick it out unique varieties a club like the California Wine Company is a great solution.Â They have four wine of the month clubs to choose from, so there is one to suit all tastes and all budgets. The Clubs are:
- Premier Club â€“ The most popular and what I received
- Signature Series – For collectors and connoisseurs
- International Selections – From small “mom & pop” wineries around the world.
- Aged Cabernet Series – Napa’s most prestigious Cabernets aged 8 – 12 years
You donâ€™t have to sign up for an every month membership either, if you only want your wine sent every other month or quarterly that is fine too!Â So check out www.cawineclub.com for more information on the various clubs or to place an order.Â Please note that the Christmas ground shipping deadline is December 12th, so order by then if you want wine for Christmas.
I also have a giveaway for my readers, one of you will win 2 bottles of wine from the California wine club!Â This giveaway is open to US only, you must be 21 and over, and the Club cannot ship wine to Utah.Â Enter in the Rafflecopter form below.
