Having wine delivered right to your door is so convenient and easy!Â I recently received my second shipment of wine from the California Wine Club, and my husband and I have been enjoying trying a glass of new wine with dinner this week.Â Last month we enjoyed wine from Perry Creek Vineyard, and this month we received two selections from Castoro Cellars, 2010 Paso Robles Pinot Noir and 2010 Paso Robles Gewurztraminer.
I love having someone else select wine for me, because frankly I donâ€™t know much about how to select a good wine.Â When I go in a liquor store it is overwhelming to see all the choices!Â I also like that with the California Wine club I get wine from all different vineyards, so hopefully I can develop more of a taste for good wine.Â I probably never would have picked out a wine called Gewurztaraminer, but my husband and I loved the bottle we received.Â It is a nice light white wine, that is just a little sweet and tastes fruity.Â I donâ€™t like white wine if it is too sweet, but the Gewurztarminer gets the sweetness just right for me.Â I served this with shrimp and pasta, and it was an excellent combination.
We served the Pinot Noir with steak and potatoes, which is always a winner for red wine.Â This Pinot Noir had a nice intense smoky flavor, and was an excellent addition to our meal.Â I also appreciate that the newsletter that comes from the club gives so much information about the wine and winery.Â Uncorked isnâ€™t just a newsletter, it is a 12 page color magazine that tells you all about the wine you are receiving.Â In this edition it even included a recipe for Cedar Planked Salmon (to go along with the Pinot Noir) and information about how Castoro Vineyards was founded.Â It is great to read about the small family run wineries that California is famous for.
Next month is the Holiday wine shipment, and I canâ€™t wait!Â Even better one of my readers is going to win a one month subscription to the California Wine Club for themselves, so they can try out the Holiday wines too!Â If youâ€™d like to order from the site you can use the code ramblings at checkout for a 10% discount on any gifts you order from the site.Â If you sign up for a Wine Club Membership you will receive a 10% discount on your first month and a FREE bottle of wine with your first shipment.
