You know I like my wine! Most of the time I cook with it but I do enjoy drinking wine from time to time! I recently received a shipment of wine from The California Wine Club. I have to tell you, I am pretty impressed with the selections that I received. Not just the selections though, I am impressed with the whole package.
I received a shipment that was beautifully packaged. The wine was in a secure styrofoam container and included with the wine was a magazine called Uncorked. The wine came from The Robledo Family Winery and Uncorked has all kinds of interesting information about the wine, the winery, recipes that pair well with the wine, how best to enjoy the wine. You get the picture. Interesting stuff. Educational too! I like wine but know very little about it.
I received a 2009 Seven Brothers Napa Valley Tempranillo and a 2008 Seven Brothers Lake County Sauvignon Blanc. I learned that the grapes for the Tempranillo were handpicked on October 20, 2009 and delivered to the Robledo Family Winery where they were sorted and gently crushed. Fermentation lasted 8 days. Pretty cool info! The Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with Ahi Tuna, Oysters, Ceviche and light salads. These are good things to know!
I also learned that every time you receive a shipment from The California Wine Club you have a chance to win an entire case of your favorite CWC wines! Each shipment of wine includes a judging card, just mail it in and you have another entry for the drawing. How cool is that?
The California Wine Club also has a Signature Series Wine Club. This club is for Wine Collectors and Connoisseurs. Members of the Signature Series receive monthly shipments of highly rated wines from some of California's best small artisan wineries.

I can't wait to tell you about the next shipment!
