As you can tell from the name of my blog, good wine is something I take seriously. So when I discovered FlipFlop Wines - a fantastic wine company that also supports an amazing cause - I knew it was something I was going to have to check out for myself!
In their own words:
flipflop wines: to each, their own
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.
Being a Florida Beach Bunny puts me right in the line of thinking with FlipFlop Wines - relaxed, laid back, flirty wines for every occasion. Though these wines are not geared towards the "hoity toity wine connoisseurs," they still have the quality and flavors as the higher priced versions. From Chardonnay to Pinot Noir, FlipFlop Wines offer a great variety of whites and reds for all fellow Wine-os.
I was excited to receive not just one but THREE bottles of wine to review - the Riesling, the Pinot Grigio, and the Pinot Noir. Now, as a Moscato drinker, I like sweeter wines, so I was very glad to receive the Riesling - my second favorite kind of wine. It was very good actually - tasting better than some recent Moscatos I have tried.
The Pinot Grigio was a little more dry, but still sweet enough for me to enjoy. My first thought was how great this wine would be with a seafood dinner. It was light and crisp, with a great after taste.
The Pinot Noir was a bit too dry for me - but Mike loved it! He enjoys reds and thought it had a great flavor, and would compliment a steak or veal meal very well. (gosh, you would think one of us would learn to cook around here)
What impressed me as much as the wines though is their cause - Soles4Souls. With each bottle of FlipFlop Wines purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need. As someone who works for a company that is serious about "giving back" the Soles4Souls program has me 100% "sold" on FlipFlop Wines. I am excited to order more FlipFlop Wine for myself and of course my favorite gift to give is a great bottle of wine. Now I can feel good about my gift AND helping a terrific cause. It's a win-win.
