A few years ago I realized that I enjoy to drink wine. I’m not sure when the change was or what caused the change, I just realized that wine is actually relaxing and now that I’m drinking it at the correct temperature it tastes just as good at home as it does in restaurants. In fact, I’ve had some very good wine from California Wine Company.
For the past few months, I’ve been receiving a monthly shipment of two different bottles of wine as part of their California Wine Premier Club membership. In April I was gone so much I didn’t have a chance to drink very much of my wine, but this month I’ve been home and it was my birthday and it was mother’s day so I indulged. On my birthday I had friends over and we drank two bottles of wine, one white and one red. It was such a true treat for me.
Plus, I have to admit that I get a huge kick out of a monthly shipment. I love opening the box and checking out the two new varieties I received. I would never have the opportunity to try so many different kinds of wine. Every month it’s a new variety. I have been keeping notes and plan to write about a few of my favorites very soon, but I just had to share with you how much I love getting wine every month and tell you that you should consider getting a membership too. You have to be 21, because you have to sign for wine deliveries. And you have to choose your membership type. You can be a member for free, but if you want to sign up for wine deliveries than you need to decide if you want Premier Club like me or they have three other memberships you can try. Signature Series, International Selections, and Aged Cabernet Series.
