It seems that whenever I go away on these FABULOUS trips that I want to bring a piece of that life back to my day-to-day life. For example, I always dress well when I travel, but when I’m back home there are days that I spend half of the day in either PJ’s or workout clothes because I’m “in the house…so, why bother.” I drink GREAT wine when I travel or go out to dinner and I know that I should make more of an effort to enjoy the same at home each day.
While I found myself sitting here at noon in my jammies a couple of times since returning, I HAVE been enjoying great wine. It’s so EASY. Especially since I’m a member of The California Wine Club’s Premier Membership program (totally beats the bridge club in my book). It’s such a simple thing having great wine delivered each month.
I returned from Paris and tore into the box the next morning (things happen quickly around here). Just knowing that I’ll be getting two bottles of fabulous wine delivered to my house each month (for 3 months), and getting to try different varieties is JUST the experience that I was looking for. I don’t have to walk into the wine store and be faced with hundreds or thousands of bottles. No more choosing wine based on the CUTE LABEL or playing it safe and buying the same ones over and over again. My monthly wine is chosen FOR me and I love the adventure of uncorking a wine that I’m not familiar with.
I know my way around a champagne, but for some reason I’d never had a Zinfandel before, so when I uncorked the 2008 “ZinMan” Zinfandel by Perry Creek Winery I was pleasantly surprised. For some reason I never thought that a Zin would be smooth and this wine proved me WRONG. I had popped a white pizza into the oven for the family and a Nutrisystem into the microwave for myself and enjoyed a glass for dinner (as did B and Mr. S). Why had I always thought that zinfandel was sweet???? I’m so happy that they sent me a wine that I’d never tried. I’m already expanding my horizons and I LIKE IT!
The second wine that I received was a 2009 El Dorado Chardonnay. Chardonnay’s I know, and this one had a crisp clean flavor. It’s no wonder that it’s a Silver Medal winner. Interestingly, I learned that my son (don’t worry, he’s 28 years old) enjoys a nice Chardonnay as well and it’s nice having someone to enjoy a glass with as we watch a movie or just chat.
