{California Wine Club + Giveaway}

DSC_3337

I have to preface this with a disclaimer- I said I would try out the California Wine Club service (sent to me to review for this post) last week- before giving up sweets and cleaning up my act in the food department. I do truly believe that treats like wine, champagne, and cake can be enjoyed in moderation and they really don’t need to be cut out of your diet forever (that would just be sad).

For these two weeks I’m not indulging in drinks, sweets, or otherwise- however, that doesn’t mean that you guys have to give these things up, and so I have a great giveaway for you! I’m always intrigued by subscription services, mostly because I find them to be really amazing gifts and I have written a lot about them before. I think that it really shows that you took the time to get to know the person that you picked out the gift for. Having several wine lovers in my life I was eager to try out the California Wine Club to see if it would be the perfect gift for them. Husband and wife team Bruce and Pam travel around tasting and finding some of the best wine to send out to their club members- and this is my favorite part, it’s from smaller family owned wineries. 

California is home to thousands of small family wineries handcrafting extraordinary wine in quantities too limited to be found in local stores or shops. In 1990, wine club founders Bruce and Pam Boring discovered that these winemaking families were the most passionate in the wine world and that their wines were the hidden gems of wine country. The wine club has since distinguished itself by taking great care in selecting only the finest wineries as partners and by featuring only the best wine from each.

For my subscription tasting I’m going to  bring over some friends who are much more skilled in the wine department than myself, and will be sharing recipes that will go hand in hand with the different types of wine. Thank you to Cooking with Caitlin for setting up these fun wine times! I think that this would be the perfect gift for the wine lover in your life.
