So you might have heard me talk a time or two (or six) about the California Wine Club. It’s because I believe in their offering. Which just so happens to be, you know, wine.
Seriously, I mentioned before how the biggest thrill for me is the monthly shipment arriving from the California Wine Club. When the doorbell rings and the FedEx guy is still standing there instead of tossing a package on my porch and running back to his truck, then I know it must be my wine shipment. He hands me the box with a smile, mainly because it clearly states the box contains alcohol or because I always make some comment like “Oh, thank God.” Then he asks for my signature to ensure that I am 21 years of age or older.
Although he’s never asked for proof of age… what’s up with that?
My final shipment for the year arrived the day I was leaving on a roadtrip to Baltimore to spend Thanksgiving at my sister’s house. I couldn’t think of a better thing to bring than my precious shipment. And I couldn’t think of a better setting for my wine tasting.
Really, this was the best wine I think I’ve had all year. And that’s not just the third glass of wine talking this time. I’d definitely buy Tulip Hill again.
(Well, the Chardonnay anyway. Somebody drank the red again without me capturing it on camera. It might have been my husband. And I might not have even had a chance to try it.)
Anyway, you were able to see that I survived the holidays and actually had a good time and didn’t overeat. Until it was time for dessert, anyway.
You, too, can survive the holidays and in fact, all year round, with the gift of wine. California Wine Club makes an awesome Christmas present or anytime present. Might I suggest a wine club gift for the following recipients:
- Your boss
- Your parents
- Your grandparents
- Your children (assuming they are over 21)
- Your neighbor (and then invite yourself over every month)
- Your favorite blogger (just saying)
This is seriously a good gift for the grown-ups that have everything and insist you don’t buy them anything for Christmas. Buy them something anyway.
P.S. Gifts for yourself are totally allowed too!
California Wine Club provided me a complimentary membership to the club but all opinions of the wine and the club are entirely my own.
