I'm not a wine expert, but just like the appreciation of good food, I too am still discovering something new everyday about wine. A couple of weeks ago, we had a wine tasting here at work and I learned a little more then. The wine guy, or if you want to get fancy, sommelier, who conducted the wine tasting brought some new wines that I hadn't tasted before and probably would have been too scared to try if it hadn't been offered to me. They were so good that my husband and I immediately went to their wine store and got a couple of bottles to enjoy at home.

A wine club would essentially serve the same purpose of introducing you to new types and makes of wine. For instance, a club like the CA Wine Club will introduce you to the best of California's artisan wineries. You can sample wines from award winning wineries that aren't usually found in your local wine store. There are three wine clubs to choose from, depending on your preference: The CA Wine Club, The Upper Level Club and the International Selections. In addition to sampling wines, you also benefit by receiving a subscription to the newsletter, Uncorked. You can get assistance from experienced wine consultants in choosing the right wines or just to answer your questions. As club member you will also get 50% off the retail price when you reorder a wine that you have sampled. The best thing is, there is no contract to join the club. You can cancel your membership at anytime and membership is free, no fees. All the wines sent to you are 100% guaranteed. That means there is no risk of getting a 'bad' bottle of wine. Can't beat a deal like that, can you?

If you're interested, you can also give as gift a wine club membership. If you sign up now, they will give your first month's shipment free. All you have to do is pay for the shipping which is $13 and you'll get two bottles of wine, a savings of $34.95. Check out their website and learn about the program.
