Flipflop wine is more than just wine…so before I tell you about my thoughts, I’d like to tell you about their company. David Georges, vintner of Flipflop wines, began working on wines in 2009 that would soon become the inaugural vintage for Flipflop wines. They crafted seven different wines to tempt the taste buds of the every day casual lifestyles. The collection consists of Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir. Flipflop wines has partnered up with Soles4Souls. With over 300 million children all over the world without shoes, Flipflop is dedicated to putting shoes on more than 100,000 feet! For every bottle of Flipflop wine purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need*
I haven’t had a Pinot Grigio in a long time…so this was a pleasant surprise. This is a 2010 California wine delicious with bruschetta, spaghetti carbonara or eggplant parmesan…or if you are like me, it’s great alone! Pinot Grigio is not overly sweet…but it does have a wonderful sweetness to it and a little bite (not harsh at all…just a little kick…my husband didn’t think it had a bite, so I may be using the wrong word to describe…just know it’s yummy). Refreshing, clean, crisp taste will appeal to many wine drinkers. With a hint of citrus & pear, your glass will need a refill soon. I was surprised when my husband told me he enjoyed the Pinot Grigio over the Riesling. This was his first time trying Pinot Grigio.
The 2010 Washington Riesling is a sweeter wine…filled with peach, apricot and melon. Perfect wine to pair with Tofu stir-fry, shredded pork tacos and sake sashimi. By far, this is one of my new favorites! Sweet and smooth…a wonderful wine for the summertime. If you want something sweet…but not sticky sweet, then try the Riesling!
Flipflop wines…to each, their own! We all have a preference to what type of wine we like. Flipflop wines retail for $7 a bottle. It’s not the 2 buck chuck…or the extremely expensive wine that normal people can’t buy…it’s priced for the everyday person…allowing people to have quality wine at an affordable price.
