Recently I decided to try Club W, a monthly wine club. Basically you sign up, take a quiz on things you like and they suggest wine for you to order. The bottles range between $13-26, and you get to select what is shipped to you. Oddly after I did my quiz they suggested only Red wines. I haven’t found a red that I like, so this surprised me. I went through the site and selected 3 whites I typically enjoy. I ordered a sparkling white, Gewurztraminer, and White blend. The wines were shipped quickly once I completed my order. I was notified the day before delivery because someone who is over 21 has to sign for the package (I shipped to my work because of this).
The first wine I tried was the Gewurztraminer. It was nothing like other’s I have tried. It was bland with an odd after taste. Typical Gewurztraminer are a crisp fruit filled flavor. If you haven’t tried Gewurztraminer I highly recommend Fetzer (check your local grocery).
Next I poped the sparkling white for Mimosas. It was very good. The best part was I didn’t get a terrible migraine after a glass, which normally happens to me with sparking wine.
The blended white was nice, smooth taste, and what I expected. Defiantly a bottle I will order again. I will order another month from Club W, however I am not sure if it is something I will do all year long. I have certain wines I enjoy and spending money on wine’s I haven’t tried is like Russian Roulette to me.
Here are some fun tips to get you through a wine tasting.
