If you have friends or relatives who love wine, you MUST give them a California Wine Club Premier Club membership. The Premier Club is California Wine Club’s most popular wine gift, probably because it’s so flexible. For example, you can give someone a one, two, three or up to a 12 month membership. You can also pick what type of wines (a mix of reds and whites or just red or just white) your gift recipient likes. You can even choose how often they get the wine shipped to them – every month, every other month, or quarterly.
And they don’t only get two bottles of award-winning wine from California’s best “mom and pop” wineries. Your gift recipient will receive The California Wine Club’s 12-page, full-color newsletter, Uncorked®, which contains a lot of wonderful information about that month’s selection and winery.
Premier Club gifts start at just $49.95 including shipping and handling, plus any applicable sales tax. Members can even reorder their favorites and save up to 50% off normal retail!
December’s wine pick
As part of my two-month membership, I received two bottles of wine this month – one red, one white – from the Daniel Gehrs Wines in Santa Barbara County. We drank both with our Thanksgiving dinner.
Central Coast Merlot (2009) – My mom and husband both drank this. My mom, who’s French and knows a thing or two about wine, really enjoyed it. This wine goes well with prime rib and steak.
Santa Barbara County White Hills Vineyard Chenin Blanc (2011) – I rarely drink chenin blancs and enjoyed this wine immensely. It pairs well with seasoned chicken dishes, turkey, spicy Asian foods, seafood and mild white fish. In 2010, this wine earned a Top 10 White Wine award from the World Wine Championship competition.
As a nice touch, my December wine bottles were wrapped in shiny Mylar bags, making them a perfect last minute hostess gift, if needed in emergency!
