The California Wine Club


I’m not a huge wine drinker, but I do like a glass once and awhile. My parents both drink wine and I’ve tasted many different ones from them.

My favorite wine would be a Merlot. I like it at room temperature. I remember my brother introduced me to Merlot….

I was able to review two bottle from The California Wine Club. One red and one white. They are from the Robledo Family Winery.

The red is Tempranillo, 2009. My father and stepmom were down to visit when we opened the red wine. They buy wine by the cases and have belonged to several wine clubs. They really enjoyed the Tempranillo. I enjoyed it with my Italian dinner. They had a bottle they brought along and said they liked mine better.


The white wine was a Sauvignan Blanc, 2008. I tried it and was not pleased with it. However white wine is not my favorite. I did take it along to my mother’s house and she and my uncle did enjoy the Sauvignan Blanc. They said is was slightly dry, not too tart and smooth.

I think I will stick with reds!


So wine choose a wine club? It’s really a great way to try new wines and if you find one you like you can re-order!  The California Wine Club lets you choose red or white or both! You can order as gift for someone or yourself!

What makes different than all the other clubs? They hand-pick every wine featured. Each winery is visited in person and two bottles are selected of their very best! No bulk or discounted wines here!


I will be getting another shipment next month and look forward to sharing with you! There will be a giveaway as well!

Make sure to then out on Twitter and Facebook too.





This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I received a 2 month Membership to the California Wine Club for the purpose of this review.
