My husband and I are not big drinkers but we do enjoy a nice glass of wine every once in awhile. Recently we were introduced to a new brand of wine and you are all going to love the name of this company as it's so fitting for summer...
So let me introduce you to flipflop wines - flipflop wines was created when Vintner, David Georges was working at an organic vegetable farm in the Mt. Shasta region of California, David discovered the art of grape growing. After planting a small vineyard on the farm, he was fascinated with wine, from managing the vineyard to tasting the fruits of his labor. Inspired to learn more, David attended the University of California at Davis first to study viticulture, and then added winemaking coursework as well. David honed his winemaking skills at well-known California wineries including Artesa and Davis Bynum.
In 2009, David began working on the wines that would become the inaugural vintage of flipflop. His goal is to stay true to each wine’s varietal character, and to make great tasting wines that don’t break the bank.
We were able to review 3 bottles of flipflop so let me tell you about each one...
First let me tell you about my favorite the Riesling. Oh my was this wine good! We had a pool party a few weeks ago with some family and of course I shared flipflop with them. The Riesling has hints of peach, apricot and melon which lead to a satisfying, smooth finish. This tropical, sweet wine was so good on a hot summer day and the name is so fitting!
The 2nd wine I just had to share with my brother Josh and his wife Sara because they love Pinot Grigio. Pino Grigio is a light-bodied, refreshing wine with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty, clean finish. They very much enjoyed this wine and loved it when I told them that it is only $7 a bottle and were even more excited when I told them that they sold this at our local grocery store!
The last bottle is their Pinot Noir. I wasn't sure about this wine because I like very sweet wine and it is medium-dry wine. I read on the website that this is great paired with grilled mahi mahi, baconwrapped shrimp or chocolate chip cookies so we paired it with just that, chocolate chip cookies and oh my it went very well! Pinot Noir has cola aromas with hints of vanilla and is best served at room temperature.
Over all we were all very pleased with flipflop wines! I was most excited that it is very affordable and found at our local grocery store ( and we live in a rather small town!). I love having a good bottle of wine in the house just in case we have unexpected visitors or friends over and I don't mind these setting out on my wine rack because the labeling is so cute too!
There is one more awesome thing about this company - they have paired with Soles4Souls and for every bottle of flipflop wine purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need! LOVE THAT!!
