Sometimes when I head into a wine store, I just get overwhelmed with the options. There are so many different types of wines, colors, vineyards, and bottles to choose from. For someone who is still learning their “favorite” kind of wine, it can be too much. That’s one of the great benefits of The Premier Club offered at The California Wine Club.
The Premier Club features “…two bottles of award-winning wine from California’s best ‘mom & pop’ wineries. For just $36.45 per month (plus shipping and handling) you eliminate all of the guesswork and trial and error process that comes from selecting a wine. No membership fees, cancel anytime and all wines are 100% guaranteed.” Each wine included in the shipment is hand-selected by the club owners, Bruce and Pam. When you pop the cork, you can be assured that the bottle you’re about to enjoy has been sampled and recommended by “the pros.” Not to mention, since the wine is being delivered straight to your door, it is incredibly convenient.
When you receive your monthly shipment from The California Wine Club, an issue of Uncorked magazine is included. Inside you’ll find additional information about the vineyards and the wines in your monthly shipment. I love the “Story Behind The Wines” feature, which can provide a behind the scenes look at the vineyard producing the wines. You learn about the owners, the vines, and the wines. It’s the type of information you would normally only get by visiting the actual vineyard, without having to actually drive to the vineyard.
This month’s shipment was from Castoro Cellars and included the “Blind Faith” Pino Noir, Paso 2010 and a Gewurztraminer, Paso Roble 2010. As I sit here drinking the Gewurztraminer (one of my favorite wines to say and drink), I’m truly appreciating the benefits of having these wines hand-selected a shipped for me. I’m really looking forward to next month’s shipment, which will include special holiday wines that I know will be amazing.
Don’t forget, if you’re interested in receiving or gifting a membership to The California Wine Club, you can use code wicproject at checkout to receive 10% off any gifts ordered from the site. If you sign-up for yourself, you’ll receive a 10% discount on the first month of membership AND a free bottle of wine in your first shipment. Cheers!
