flipflop wines: Good Wine for a Good Cause

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I view wine as a symbol of an individual's personal taste. If you favor the finer things, you can buy wine in heavy glass labeled with gold-embossed letters and you can also buy it in a box with a spigot if you prefer no frills.

I was invited to try a new collection of wines called flipflop wines that promises outstanding quality at an affordable suggested retail price of $7 per bottle. I agreed to sample flipflop wines because the name conjured up an image of me strolling along a sandy beach carrying a pair of flip flops in one hand and a glass of wine in the other while foamy waves caressed my bare feet. That's exactly how I want to feel when drinking wine...relaxed and carefree.

I also said yes to flipflop wines because they are socially conscious. They have partnered with Soles4Souls Inc., the international shoe charity dedicated to providing free footwear to those in need. The program will raise funds to provide one pair of flip-flop sandals for each bottle of flipflop wine purchased (up to 100,000 pairs for the first 100,000 bottles sold, where promotion is legal).

So, flipflop wine is a good value and supports a good cause...but does it taste good? The answer is an unequivocal yes! I was sent bottles of Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio and Riesling and all three were charmingly delicious. I am partial to Riesling for its sweetness and the flipflop Riesling did not disappoint! It is fruity and silky and was a great match with our chicken quesadilla dinner. Damon's is a red wine man, so the Pinot Noir was right up his alley. His exact words were, "it tastes pretty good." That's a solid endorsement in my book because he's picky and doesn't gush.
I bet you are itching to try the brand that Wine Enthusiast magazine awarded the title of "Best Buy" in its June issue. To locate a retailer near you, connect with flipflop wines on Facebook and they will tell you where to find them in your area. You can also shop online!

Grab a bottle of flipflop wine in your favorite red or white this Memorial holiday, you will totally flip!

I love that picture of you two. I love wine in all packaging - bottles, boxes, whatever!

Thank you friend for your support. Also, I noticed your sponsor primrose. She contacted me recently and hasn't followed up.

I saw these wines at the grocery store the other day when I popped in to pick up a couple random things we needed. I'll have to go back and pick up a few bottles! :)

I'm not surprised it was good! Even the experts say that for the most part, the price tag on a bottle of wine doesn't have that much to do with what it tastes like!
