Why is donating your shoes so important? There are over 300 million children in the world without shoes and flipflop is dedicated to helping put shoes on more than 100,000 feet! Shoes are so important and in reality many individuals have to grow up without owning a pair of shoes. Shoes help prevent the spread of diseases and serious health conditions. Together we can help… all you have to do is clean out your closet and donate those shoes you no longer wear. I know I have a few that I haven’t worn in years. Why am I keeping them? It’s time to donate!
flipflop wines are award-wining wines (all under $10)! Whether you like reds or whites, flipflop has something for everyone ~ Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, and Moscato.
We started off with the Pinot Grigio ($7) ~ light-bodied, refreshing taste with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty, clean finish. Perfect to pair with bruschetta, spaghetti carbonara or eggplant parmesan. This is what my friends has to say (rating on a 1-10 scale):
- Christy ~ 8; “Not overly sweet…but it does have a wonderful sweetness to it and a little bite.”
- Chas ~ 8; “I would buy this wine!”
- David ~ 6; “Not bad for a white.”
- Crissy ~ 6; “Not a wine I would normally drink, but not bad.”
- Doris ~ 10; “LOVE IT! Wanted more.”
- Carolyn ~ 6; “I like sweeter, but matched with the right dinner I would enjoy.”
Next we tried the Riesling ($7) ~ medium-bodied, peach, apricot and melon flavors leading to a smooth & satisfying finish. Excellent wine to drink with tofu stir-fry, shredded pork tacos or sushi.
- Christy ~ 8; “Sweet and smooth…a wonderful wine for the summertime.”
- Chas ~ 9; “Sweeter.”
- David ~ 1; “Way too sweet.”
- Crissy ~ 7; “Pretty good for a white.”
- Doris ~ 9; “Enjoyed a lot.”
- Carolyn ~ 7; “Still like sweeter wines, but I enjoyed it.”
My favorite was the Moscato ($7) ~ light-bodied with floral aromas, semi-sweet. Delicious dessert wine, but you can also pair with Pad Thai, Chinese chicken salad or vegetable curry.
- Christy ~ 10; “Skip the chocolate…gimme the WINE! I could drink an entire bottle on my own… oh wait, I have!”
- Chas ~ 10; “My favorite! I love Moscato!”
- David ~ 1; “Way too sweet.”
- Crissy ~ 8; “Yummy dessert wine.”
- Doris ~ 6; “Too sweet for me.”
- Carolyn ~ 10; “LOVED IT! 3 glasses later, this is the way I like wine.”
On to the reds… Pinot Noir ($7) ~ medium-bodied, with a bright cherry, sweet spice and velvety finish. Wonderful wine to pair with grilled mahi mahi, bacon-wrapped shrimp…or even chocolate chip cookies.
- Christy ~ 7; “Not a huge red wine drinker, but I liked the warm sensation while sipping this wine.”
- Chas ~ 8; “Pretty good.”
- David ~ 4; “Little sweet.”
- Crissy ~ 9; “Good from start to finish!”
- Doris ~ 9; “Grew on me…I would buy it.”
- Carolyn…refused to try it because she didn’t want to give up her glass of Moscato!
We finished the review with the Cabernet Sauvignon ($7) ~ full-bodied, with blackberry fruit, dark cherries and a long lingering finish and hints of black pepper and berries. Paired with a steak would make your meal beyond perfect!
- Christy ~ 7; “I did like the fruity finish and ease of the wine going down my throat. This is a dry wine.”
- Chas ~ 8; “Easy to drink.”
- David ~ 8; “Yummy, I would like to have another glass.”
- Crissy ~ 8; “I’m a Cabernet drinker. This was not as smooth as I am used to.”
- Doris ~ 10; “I love Cab!”
- Carolyn…again, she wouldn’t give up the Moscato.
After a night of great wine, delicious food and good friends I was able to fill up the donation box over half way full. But I am not stopping… I still have friends that couldn’t make it to the group review. I encourage all my friends, family and readers to clean our their closets and donate today!
