A little while ago I hosted wine club and chose “bring your favorite bottle of wine” to be the theme. Wine club meets each month and with each month we choose a region of the world to try wine from. I thought I would mix it up a bit and let everyone try people’s favorites. It was a fun experiment and as always it was fun to taste new wine. But let’s face it…I can be pretty happy with almost any wine!
Wine Club Favorites
Let me start by saying that everyone admitted to bringing their favorite wine that they had on hand. This wasn’t the assignment, but what can you do?
Here are the contenders!
- Wolffer Estate– Brut Blanc de Blanc 2007
- La Florinda- Torrontes 2010
- Martha Clara– Rose’
- Cupcake Vinyard– Pino Noir
- Bogle Vineyard– Petite Sirah
- Bertani Due Uve-Syrah Merlot
Some runners up from those that could not attend.
I have to vouch for Vineyard 48 myself….Not cheap, but oh so yummy!!!
After tasting them all we crowned the winner… MY PICK Cupcake Vinyard Pino Noir! ($10.99) I recently have been obsessed with this brand. They even have one called Red Velvet…just the name sounds so smooth and tasty!
I love wine club, I love meeting and chatting with the girls each month. It takes two of my favorite things and puts them together…talking and wine. Who could ask for more!?
What’s your favorite wine?? I am always looking to add to the “must try” list!
