At the end of the day I love letting the stress melt away by relaxing with a glass of wine. I don't have a wine store nearby, so I often have to plan out whether or not I'm going to be able to enjoy a little vino. A new wine delivery service called Wine by Wives is making enjoying a glass of wine even easier with their celebrity wine club. Not only about the wine, the club is also focused on giving back where 10% of the profit of each club registration goes to the chosen charities. Currently, there is a Breast Cancer charity and a Battered Women'??s shelter.
Developed by Christopher Gravagna and Reality TV stars Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney, the club works by allowing enjoy a selection of wine recommended by a celebrity. Each month, the celebrities will sample, select and recommend their preference for both a red and white wine. Once you join, you will receive two bottles from their chosen celebrity'??s wine club; either two white, two red or one of each. Additionally, members will be automatically get access to exclusive content including: behind the scenes photos and videos, fun blogs, celebrity themed merchandise, discounts on premium wines and much, much more. Membership starts at $34.90 and you can also cancel at any time without a penalty.
I had a chance to sample a bottle of 2008 Gabriella Merlot and a bottle of 2009 Gabriella Chianti. First of all I loved that it was delivered right to my door - I didn't have to search out the wine and take time out of my day to locate the bottles. I tested out the Chianti first and loved its deep purple rich hue that I loved with some cheese and crackers. It was mellow and smooth and perfect after a long day. A few weeks later I tested out the Merlot that was created with 100% varietal Merlot grape from the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in northeast Italy. I loved that the wine had a pleasant fullness and finish and wasn't too dry.
In addition to the wine my delivery came with a wine basics guide that listed how to understand the aroma, taste, and how to pair food with wine.
The convenience of having wine delivered to my door was pretty incredible and loved that the company also focuses on giving back.
