California Wine Club for the Holidays + Giveaway

For the holidays, California Wine Club is treating members to a Double Gold Medal Winner and a Classy White Wine from Daniel Gehrs Wines. Our holiday shipment included two of the finest and most delicious wines I have ever tasted: Daniel Gehrs 2009 Central Coast Merlot and 2011 Santa Barbara Country White Hills Vineyard Chenin Blanc.

California Wine Club for the Holidays

We do so much for the kids during the holiday season, but enjoying a good bottle of wine is something that I can do to treat myself. I’m not someone who drinks wine with every meal, but when gathering with friends and family I enjoy sharing a bottle of wine. In rural Georgia you could say that our wine selection is pretty limited… a wine club membership is such an obvious solution for someone like me. Not only do I get to try wines that I would otherwise never get to experience, but I know it is going to be good.

The California Wine Club ships only the best of the best to it’s members, and this months holiday wines are just that. I’ve always been a Merlot drinker. It’s pretty much a sure bet for me, but still I was impressed by the fabulous Daniel Gehrs 2009 Central Coast Merlot. Even someone like my sister-in-law, who typically doesn’t drink red wine, truly enjoyed a glass of this wine.

For me the real shining star of this wine shipment was the Chenin Blanc. I had never even heard of this wine, and was so impressed by the heavy notes of citrus and mild sweetness. I will surely be ordering another bottle of this crisp, zesty wine.

Are you looking for that perfect holiday gift? California Wine Club offers a variety of different membership options, including a one time shipment for the holidays. But don’t wait too long to place your order… the Ground Shipping deadline is December 12th! Any orders placed after Dec 12 incur expedited air charges for Christmas deliveries.
