After I put my kids to bed at night I like to relax. Sometime I blog, sometimes I watch Netflix, and other times I enjoy a nice drink! At home I like to keep it simple: wine! I prefer white wines over reds. That being said, I know nothing about wine! I am familiar with some names, but other than that, I just look at color.
Not knowing anything, I enjoy when somebody recommends a specific bottle or when I am at a party and I get to sample different wines. I do like Moscato and sparkling wines, but I am always open to trying new white wines.
Uncorked Ventures offers an Explorations Wine Club which features two wines a month sent directly to your door. Most months, you will get one white and one red wine. For $40 a month, along with your two bottles of wine, you can get discounts on re-orders, a monthly newsletter, first dibs on last call wines, and 10% off all purchases from the Uncorked Ventures online store. Current wine club members can re-order wine at discounts up to 50% off retail pricing all while enjoying free shipping by adding your order to your next wine club shipment.
Uncorked Ventures is a family owned and operated business. Their wines come from California, Washington, and Oregon, specifically from small artisan producers whose wines are not widely available. By making frequent trips to wine country, the owners develop relationships with top winemakers, giving Uncorked Ventures access to the high quality, limited production wines.
For my shipment, I requested two whites. I was sent the Villa San Maurice Chardonnay and the Chatom Vineyards Semillon. Both wines come from California. The Chardonnay has a nice balance of acidity and fruits. Did you know that Chardonnay is the most planted grape in the world? The same grape makes Champagne and other sparkling wines. Here in California, 25% more Chardonnay is planted than the second most popular grape, Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Semillon has aromas of pear, green apple, and passion fruit, with a rich and sweet flavor filled with hints of shaved almonds and a kiss of vanilla. It is creamy and bright with fresh acidity, and soft oak tones with a kiss of citrus.
I loved the taste of both wines. I have enjoyed relaxing at night with my wine after working all day. I also love the idea of a wine club, getting wine sent directly to my door and getting to try new and different varieties. A wine club is a great way to find your new favorite wine.
Uncorked Ventures also offers wine gifts and gift baskets along with their three different wine club options. Connect with Uncorked Ventures on and .
