(NAPSI)—Here’s an idea you might care to raise a glass to: You can give someone you care about—including yourself—the gift of easy access to handcrafted, award-winning, artisan wines not available anywhere else.
Membership in The California Wine Club—a wine purveyor with a difference—can delight anyone who likes wine; wants to learn more about wine in a fun, exciting way; or considers wine a part of his or her life.
The club was created to provide recommendations and selections, just as a friend would recommend a great bottle of wine to another. Members say The California Wine Club is like touring wine country from the comfort of home. There are no membership fees, and customers can stop or modify their preferences at any time.
Bruce and Pam Boring, who founded the club, discover small wineries and leverage their years of experience, exquisite taste and long-built relationships with craft winemakers to hand select and deliver award-winning wines right to your door. They know the wineries and vintners know them, so club members get introduced to wineries and wines they might never have found on their own.
In addition to discovering smaller, award-winning wineries, members get a fun and easy way to learn about wine in a vibrant, full-color travelogue, “Uncorked.” Also, experienced wine consultants to assist with wine choices and questions, and convenient, “to your door” delivery. Wines can be delivered monthly, every other month or quarterly.
Terms to Taste Wine By
Meanwhile, the next time you are wine tasting in person, here are two terms to help you sound like a pro:
1. Bouquet: The aroma that a wine develops after it has been bottled and aged; most appropriate for mature wines that have developed complex flavors beyond basic young fruit and oak aromas.
2. Legs: The viscous droplets that form and ease down the sides of the glass when the wine is swirled.
