Holiday Gift Guide- California Wine Club Review

Since 1990, club owners Bruce and Pam Boring have traveled California's wine country searching for limited-production wines from small, family-owned wineries dedicated to the art of making fine wine. Whether for yourself or a gift, CWC membership is an adventure in wine tasting that will not be experienced anywhere else.

They journey not only to Napa and Sonoma, but to less-explored wine regions like Santa Barbara, Monterey, the Sierra Foothills and beyond.

Membership costs nothing, you can cancel anytime, and every wine is 100% guaranteed.

More than three-quarters of California's 3,500+ wineries are small, boutique, mom-and-pop operations whose wines never travel beyond their local markets and private customer lists. Come discover them with us!

My Sister, Mother in Law, and Aunt in Law (that sounds weird!!) love wine.  Ashley has been to every winery in New England, and my Mother in law and Aunt in law, have been to many themselves.  So when I was given the chance to review wine from The California Wine Club, I thought of them!!

The first shipment I received was of two bottles from the Robledo Family Winery.  We received a 2008 Sauvignon Blanc and a 2009 Tempranillo.

Now I will never claim to be a wine connoisseur, but my years working at the Olive Garden and pairing wines with food gave me some knowledge!!

The Sauvignon Blanc is a dry citrus tasting wine with a hint of lemongrass.  It is a great wine to pair with a fish dish like oysters or we drank it with grilled shrimp and scampi.  Yum!!

The Tempranillo is a heavier red wine with a cranberry and spice taste to it.  To me this is more a dessert wine.  I would pair this with a nice Filet Mignon and/or a chocolate desert.

Both wines were very tasty.  We enjoyed sipping them with our meals.  It was a nice treat.
