I love to enjoy a great glass of wine with a meal or when out with friends; however, I tend to stick with a brand of wine I’m familiar with unless a different one is recommended to me by someone I know. Since I’m hesitant to step out of my “wine comfort zone,” I was thrilled to hear about The California Wine Club.
Since 1990, California Wine Club owners Bruce and Pam Boring have traveled in search of limited-production wines from small, family-owned wineries. When they add a winery and variety of wine to their club, it’s like a friend suggesting a great, award-winning bottle to try. They’ve done all the legwork and as a member, I get to enjoy the fruits of their labor!!
They offer four different wine clubs to join:
- The Premier Club – Their most popular club which includes two bottles of wine a month and a 12-page issue of the publication, Uncorked, which contains information about the wine, tasting notes, recipes and interviews. This club costs $49.95 per month plus shipping and handling.
- The Signature Series – For collectors and connoisseurs which includes two to four bottles and runs from $150 to $275.
- International Selections – Members receive two bottles from small, boutique “mom & pop” wineries around the world. Membership costs $65 to $80 a month.
- Aged Cabernet Series – Members receive two bottles of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa’s most prestigious wineries aged eight to 12 years. This level costs from $150 to $235 a month.
