By now you should know from reading my posts that I have a great relationship with an amazing company Flip Flop Wines. I am hooked on the brand since not only are Flip Flop Wines inexpensive so that the average person can enjoy them but they are made by a company that gives back to the community. Everyone who knows me knows I believe we need to do everything we can to protect our children and planet today so that there can be a tomorrow for everyone. Flip Flop Wines is partnered with Soles4Souls, a non profit organization that helps put shoes on over 100,000 feet of children who aren't fortunate to have the most basic protection. They have also supported several other charities such as Friends of the Forest, Netting Nations, and Habitat for Humanity. Amazing. This time around I received six bottle of three different kinds of wines for a group review - Moscato, Reisling, Pinot Noir.
Because I have decided to work with such a great company I am also participating in their Flippin Good Deeds Challenge. The Flippin Good Deeds Challenge is a program for communities to clean out their closets and donate gently worn footwear. Sign up, collect as many shoes as you can and share your “flippin’ good deeds” and experiences from September 6, 2011 to November 15, 2011 for a chance to win! All you need to do is share with me so I can blog about it for you (if you are not a blogger). They will send you the boxes and materials as you log your amounts weekly. The top 5 blogger's will be entered into the final. I would love to win and reward one or all of my generous readers with a fantastic prize.
As you all know my sister is getting married this weekend so when we started the party planning for her bachelorette, I wanted to incorporate the Flip Flop Wines AND the Flippin Good Deeds Challenge. I asked each of the attendees to bring a pair of shoes (or more) to donate to my challenge. In return we took some time out to sample the wines that were generously given to us to review. I also purchased several other Flip Flop Wines to support this wonderful company and the Soles4Souls charity.
I was able to actually enjoy the pinot noir a little more than the last time I sampled it. Although it was still a very dry wine, I mixed this with a fruit juice to balance it with a more sweet flavor. Several did complain that they expected more of a spiced flavor in a Pinot Noir but my red wine lovers enjoyed this one even though it had a mild taste to it. This was to my surprise the first wine opened AND finished!
Of course the Reisling was a hit since it is my favorite. I talked it up so much every lady who had a chance to try it thought it was great. The group opinion was this was a pleasantly fruity wine perfect with our finger foods such as the cheese and meat chunks. I still think it has a nice peachy taste that isn't too overwhelming if you want more than one glass (which we went through more than a few glasses - I mean bottles that night).
Cost: $7/bottleAvailable to purchase: Flop Flop Wine Shop. You can also find them in my area at Kroger stores for 2/$10
Recommendation: I love Flip Flop Wines since I don't have to break the bank to sit and enjoy myself at the end of the day. I also know that my money isn't going to a company where some ONE person is reaping the benefits of my pampering night. Its going to a company that helps out equally all around the world. I said it in the last review but I'll say it again - I honestly can't tell you enough great things about Flip Flop Wines. This is truly a company I believe in and enjoy.
