My Review of flipflop Wines!
What is it exactly?
From the website . . .
"...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..."
I’ve recently had the pleasure of reviewing flipflop Wine! Please read on . . .
Packaging & Presentation
For review, I received a bottle of Pinot Grigio (Vintage 2009) and a bottle of Riesling (Vintage 2010). I also received a few neat fact sheets about the wines!
Ease of Use
First, I decided to try flipflop’s Riesling! The wine was really sweet, and since it is my favorite, it will certainly be gone this week, as I drink it with dinner!
Here is some information about the Riesling:
- Tastes Like: Medium-bodied, Riesling with peach, apricot and melon which leads to a satisfying, smooth finish.
- Full Of: Tropical notes and sweet aromas.
- Serve: Chilled
- SRP: $7.00
Next, I had a glass of the Pinot Grigio. I have never tried Pinot Grigio until today, and I was delighted to take my first sip! It’s a sweet taste, but it is a bit more dry than the Riesling. I really enjoyed the Pinot Grigio, as did my husband!
Here is some information about the Pinot Grigio:
- Tastes Like: Light-bodied, refreshing Pinot Grigio with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty clean finish.
- Full Of: Balanced crisp acidity
- Serve: Chilled
- SRP: $7.00
Meet the Vintner, flipflop wines:
David Georges lives up to the motto of “recycle, reduce, reuse”. David discovered that he really wanted to study viticulture as he worked at an organic vegetable farm. He also took up enology at the University of California. David wanted to make wines that were well-balanced, and affordable for all people on all economic levels.
**flipflop wines is a company that gives back! Here is a fact sheet that I received with the wine:
The company partnered with Soles4Souls, allowing children to have the basic necessity of shoes. Flipflop wines want to achieve their goal of putting 11 million pairs of shoes on in 2011! For every bottle of wine sold, flipflop wines will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need!
