flipflop wines Review

Description of Product:With flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion. While 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.”

Review of Product: I received samples of flipflop wines in Riesling, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.  I enjoy red wine but really love a nice white wine.  I always forget how much I like the sweetness of a Riesling until I drink one and it all comes back to me quickly! These bottles were just adorable.  They are simple but fun and I like the design – I am admittedly a girl who sometimes selects a wine based on the bottle though! I liked the Riesling the most and then the Pinot Grigio.  I found the Pinot Grigio to be fairly dry but it had a nice full flavor with a citrusy pear finish that was awesome in warmer weather.  The Pinot Noir was medium-bodied and was a beautiful deep cherry red.  The tasting notes say it tastes of cola with vanilla.  I didn’t get these notes but I did  enjoy the wine nevertheless.  I will definitely look for and buy these wines – they were crisp and delicious – and the bottle being so cute is an added bonus!

I received a sample of these products to review at no charge but my opinions remain my own.

I host ladies night out each month and we try wines. How can I get on a sample for us ladies to try. I usually have 10-12 girls who attend. Thanks.
