New Experience: My First Wine Club Shipment ❤

20180710_203144_0001

I am so excited to officially be in the Wine Business! I posted last month that I joined Wine Shop At Home® as an Independent Wine Consultant and I must say after only 1 month it’s been the best business decision yet. So far, I’ve met some really amazing people, introduced my business to my co-workers and have gotten a ton of positive feedback, and potential customers. I’ve gotten a few Personal Wine Tastings on the Books and a few Sales. I’m super excited with growing momentum every day. Any whoo, Last Wednesday, I received my first Wine Club Shipment and I’m a happy camper. I couldn’t wait to open my little Blue Box. I was supposed to do my first unboxing video however, I haven’t been feeling all that well and decided to do a blog unboxing with pictures.

I signed up for the Artisan Collection® Club Select Membership which is a Monthly 2 Bottle Subscription. For only $39.95/month I will receive my choice of 1 Red Wine (Personal) and 1 White Wine (for my BF, Friends & Family) every single month ❤. You can choose (All Reds, All Whites, or Mixed.. which is what I chose). In addition to the Club Select Membership, they offer a Club Elite Membership 4 Bottles for $64.95 and a Pre-paid Club Option for people who enjoy gifting wine 🙂 3, 6, and 12 months.

I received a 2016 Halcyon Pinot Noir (Red), and a 2017 Halcyon Chardonnay (White). I love the fact that both Wines came with product card that tells you all about the Wine and Pairing Ideas and on the back of the card is a Recipe Pairing.

The Pinot Noir “Red Wine”: came with a Chicken Alfredo and Rice Casserole Recipe in which I will definitely make soon.. minus the Chicken or maybe I’ll use Vegetarian Chickn from Kroger or Whole Foods and for the “White Wine” Chardonnay: they provided a Cauliflower Macaroni and Cheese Recipe ❤ I can’t wait to try this one! Thinking of making it this week.

Overall, the Pinot Noir was Amazing! It was a strong and powerful wine with strong fruity aromas of red fruit such as strawberry and raspberry as indicated on the info card. It was delicious and totally has me eager to order more wines (individually) whilst I await next next monthly shipment. In all honesty, I think that I may upgrade my membership this fall (4 Bottles) 1 bottle every week 🙂 totally makes sense!

Until next time.. .

Dinner with my Baby Sister 🍷

Last night my son and I went to spend a little “QT” with my baby sister who is a great home cook that treated our pallets to her wonderfully delicious Chicken Alfredo and Cheesy Garlic Bread.

In addition to the amazing pasta, she introduced me to what I think may actually be one of my new favorite wines 😍! It was a glass of Santero Moscato & Peach.. Yummm!

I typically don’t care for Moscato however, this one tastes like a fresh, crisp, sparkling, Chardonnay infused with Champagne and Peaches. This was such a delightful wine that I definitely plan to add this to my list of favorites!

We had an Amazing visit, the food was incredible and as always I can’t wait until our next visit!

XOXO
