For years Pam and I were frustrated trying to find truly great wine. Selecting a decent bottle of wine from thousands of pretty labels with prices ranging from $5-$35 was difficult at the best of times. We were always happiest with wine recommendations from friends.
So, that's what we wanted to do with The California Wine Club, start a wine of the month club that was just like "one friend recommending a great bottle of wine to another friend".
We are now celebrating 20 years of business and the wine adventures keep getting better! Pam and I knew that there were hundreds of small, family-owned wineries dedicated to producing exceptional wine ... and it was this wine that we wanted to share with our monthly wine club members. Each month we travel California's wine country searching out the wineries, meeting the families and tasting the wines that never make it to local stores or wine shops.
This is why it was so easy to guarantee that our wine of the month club members and gift recipients will never receive any bulk, closeout or private label wines...ever. Each and every wine we select comes from a real working winery and is backed by our 100% guarantee.
One day, a few weeks ago, after a particularly terrible commute home from work... side note: What's so hard about drive right, pass left??? Stop cruising at 10 below the speed limit when I'm trying to pass! Anyway, where was I? Oh yea... so after a rough commute home, I was just craving a delicious glass of wine to relax me. Boy oh boy wasn't I excited to see that California Wine Club had delivered my first shipment of their wine of the month!! I received two fantastic bottles of wine; chardonnay and zinfandel. I wouldn't call myself a wine connoisseur by any means, but I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the zinfandel. I'm not particularly fond of any chardonnay I've tried so of course I wouldn't blame this on the winery. 100% wacky crazy me!
So lets talk about receiving wine at your house! It should be noted that someone above the age of 21 needs to be present at delivery to present id and sign for the package. This is the one and only inconvenience, but is 100% understandable. Otherwise California Wine Club is all about convenience and "taking the stuffy out of wine"! I mean what could be more convenient then receiving a couple of bottles of wine at your door once a month? Convenience aside, it was pretty exciting too! I had nearly forgot that I was supposed to receive it! Now imagine someone had purchased this gift for you and suddenly the FedEx man appeared at your door with some wine for you. You'd be just as ecstatic as me! Well you're in luck, you have the chance to gift some wine at a discount to your friend or even yourself at a discount!
Use coupon code peachesreview to receive 10% off of every gift order you purchase. In addition, if you decide to purchase this for yourself you'll receive 10% off of your first month by using the same coupon code. PLUS, California Wine Club will throw in an additional bottle of wine in your first months shipment, just for being one of my lovely readers! Of course there is no obligation to continue your membership beyond the first month.
