I recently joined a wine club and I'm digging it! Thank you Lori! Shopping online at my leisure in the comfort of my own home, discovering new and exclusive wines and having them shipped directly to my door = Happiness in Every Sip. I borrowed that line from WineShop at Home, the club I joined, it's a true statement.
WineShop At Home, founded in 2005, is headquartered in the legendary Napa Valley. The winery, owned by the Fredrick family of Dallas, Texas, produces award-winning, exclusive, artisan wines across 50 brands. Their wines have won over 200 awards in national and international wine competions! And they've got everything to please any wine preference, choose from sweet and bubbly to dry and crisp whites, smooth and supple to bold and intense reds. WineShop at Home features artisan wines for every occasion, palate and personality.
Included in my first order was an excellent red blend, Moderna Artist’s Palette Red Wine, here's the description from the WineShop at Home website:
Our Moderna Artist’s Palette Red Wine was grown in the Lodi area and is a blend of 45% Zinfandel, 25% Petit Verdot, 25% Tannat and 5% Muscat of Alexandria.
I really took a liking to this wine with the first swirl, sniff and sip. It's got great color and some fantastic fruit notes in the nose, delivering raspberry, wild strawberry, black currant and blueberry - it's profound. The sip starts with the sweetness of the fruit, followed by the boldness of white pepper and toasted oak. To sum, this wine is just flat out delicious, balanced and has an elegant finish.
Pairing well with dishes like lasagna, beef stew or meatloaf (Bachelor food!), the Moderna Artist's Palette Red Wine is a great add to your wine selection and I'm giving it 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. This is a repeat order for me and another nice little bonus you get with every shipment from WineShop at Home includes food pairing suggestions and recipes - like that aforementioned lasagna - for each wine ordered.
Currently offering some great discounts, I highly recommend WineShop at Home, they've got award winning wines at every price, exclusive wines delivered right to your door!
