California Wine Club Review
Welcome to the California Wine Club Review and Giveaway – I’m thrilled to be able to provide you with this honest review.

As the holidays approach so do the holiday parties. And often times, holiday parties bring about the need for a gift for the host(ess).  And that’s when the dilemma begins – “Oh dear, what am I going to give the host(ess) for a gift?”  I have an idea for you – how about a membership to the California Wine Club?”

california wine club review
Wine is a perfect gift all around, all year round and the California Wine Club makes it easy for you by offering several different memberships:

  • Premier Club – Our most popular club!
  • 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.

Every order fulfilled is:

  • From a real working winery being backed with a 100% guarantee.
  • Each wine is guaranteed to not include private label wines, bulk, or closeout wines.
  • There’s no long-term commitment.
  • There’s no membership fee AND
  • Shipping and handling is included in each shipment.
  • *Holiday Gifts will include two bottles of wine and the magazine, “Uncorked.”

I’ve been blessed with trying out the club for myself to help with the facilitation of this review.  As of this writing, I’ve received one shipment consisting of a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white wine (I have another shipment arriving in Dec.)  🙂  FedEx delivered the package to my door.  The bottles were contained in compacted styrofoam packaging within a box.  Someone would have to really work hard – like run over the package – in order to break the contents.

In the fridge the bottles went until it was time to pop the cork!  I popped the cork to the red wine – a 2009 Napa Valley Tempranillo from the Robledo Family Winery.  Myself, I think I am a ‘white red winewine’ girl.  I found the red wine to be a bit bold for my liking; however, it was velvety smooth and lush.  My father-in-law had some with me – he loved it!  My mother-in-law surprised the crap out of me (she’s not much of a drinker) – she downed the glass she had in no time (like she was drinking water)…so I would say she really liked it!

The second bottle was a 2008 Lack county Sauvignon white wine from the Robledo Family Winery.  The white wine – was fabulous!  I would describe it as being velvety smooth, lush and refreshing.  I even added some to a sauce I was making to go over the chicken cordon bleu I was making for supper because I didn’t realize I was out of white dry cooking wine.  The flavor of that sauce was out of this world.

I’m now looking forward to my next shipment.  I will chill it and share it with company during the holiday season.
