flipflop wines Review

"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."

It's finally springtime, which to me means the start of BBQ's and dinners out on the the deck at our home. It also means having a nice cool glass of wine with my husband or with friends on occasion.

I received two bottles of flipflop wines for review purposes. I usually stick with the same brand of wine, so I was excited to have a chance to try something new. I received a bottle of Riesling and Pinot Grigio. I have never tried Pinot Grigio before, so that was the first bottle that we opened. I really loved it! The Pinot Grigio is light-bodied and refreshing with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty, clean finish. We also loved the Riesling just as much! The Riesling is medium-bodied with peach, apricot and melon, which leads to a satisfying, smooth finish.

A really cool fact about flipflop wines is that they have partnered with Soles4Souls to help them achieve their goal of 11 million pairs of shoes in 2011. For every bottle of flipflop wines, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need! What a great cause!
