Wine For Christmas

What is the one gift that you can get the person that has everything? Wine! Of Course! I received two bottles of wine from Gold Medal wine clubs today. What a thoughtful gift… a rarity in my family. As a matter of fact, I don’t know of anyone who has ever got a bottle of wine for Christmas.

Have a look at these gorgeous bottles of wine in the photos below.

Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous! Immediately after opening the box they arrived in, I was surprised at how well they were packed, and how nice they looked. I received two bottles. One bottle of Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon, and one bottle of Estate Grown Merlot.

I couldn’t resist the temptation and I rushed to get my corkscrew. I opened the bottle of Cabernet, poured a small amount into my glass, and AAHHH!.. what a taste! I put the bottle of Merlot up, I will be saving it for the Christmas Holiday.

The Gold Medal Wine Club is located in California, and gives you access to some of the rarest, hard to get wine you will ever drink. Their Gold Series sign up gives you two bottles of wine for only $32 a month. You can cancel it at any time, but it is unlikely that you will. 🙂

This particular wine club scours the California vineyards, and brings you wine from the local, small production, family owned businesses. Wines that you simply can’t find unless you live in the area. I’ll say it again, if your looking for that certain gift for someone, the person who has everything, give them some wine. And when you sign up for the club, you can keep a bottle for yourself.

Another Award For Me.. Yay!

Jos from NoDirectOn (not: NoDirction) has awarded me with a Be The Blogger Award. 🙂 The drug treatment must really be working, because I seem to be getting quite a few of these lately. This award was created for bloggers who stick to their guns, and blog because they like to. They interact with their readers, and reply to comments that their readers leave.

Well, thanks! I try. 🙂

Be The Blog award

I chose the Midnight Oil version of the badge. I like the colors.

I’m going to try and tag a few people that haven’t received this award yet, but it may be a bit hard to do.

Kermit, Kathy, Canucklehead, and Elena.
