California Wine Club Review and Giveaway

When Joe and I dated, instead of hitting a local chain restaurant on date night, we would prepare special dinners at his home on the weekends.  We would watch the cooking channel on TV, make a shopping list and head out to pick up what we needed to prepare our meal.

Since he didn't have a much in the way of cooking utensils, we would hit the mall first and pick up whatever kitchen gadget we needed.  Next up would be the grocery store always followed up by a trip to the liquor store (here in Pennsylvania, we can't buy alcohol at the grocery store) for a nice bottle of wine.

At the time, I preferred white or blush wines, so I usually played it safe with a White Zinfandel.  Now, I tend to prefer the bolder flavors of red wines.  I'm not going to pretend that I know what I'm talking about when it comes to wine and throw around a bunch of wine tasting terms.  I'll fully admit that I've purchased a bottle of wine based on the pretty label, rather than based on any research done beforehand.

As our schedules became busier, our weekend trips to the Wine & Spirits Shoppe were spaced further and further apart.  Instead of each weekend, it became more of a special occasion thing.  Not because we didn't enjoy a nice bottle of wine with dinner anymore.  Our schedules just didn't allow us to fit a special trip to buy wine into our weekly errands anymore.

Now, with a child, our time is even more limited.  Sadly, a nice bottle of wine is skipped even on special occasions because we just can't manage to find the time to make it to the liquor store before closing time.

Recently, I learned about California Wine Club.  When you're a member of California Wine Club, you can have your wine shipped directly to your home!  How convenient is that?  No matter your taste or budget, California Wine Club can accommodate your wine needs with four wine of the month clubs to choose from! Making it easy to stock your own wine collection or send a gift to a friend, relative or colleague.
