Tonight I had to show my ID to the UPS man.
No, our town is not saving money on police officers by splitting the jobs with the package delivery people. It is just what happens to you when you get wine shipped to your house, right to your door!
But this was a first for me. When I was asked to show ID, I honestly didnt know if I should show him or not. Was this a weird way of hitting on me? A new way to verify they are delivering to the right house? Its my house sir, I answered the door didnt I? Believe me, I am not lounging around someone elses house in my sweatpants.
Oh, right then it dawned on me, of course! It was because I was expecting my first shipment of the California Wine Club wines! I then quickly grabbed my ID, took the package out of his hand (with the utmost excitement) and ran for a box cutter to open up the box of world renown wines.
California Wine Club
For my very first shipment ever, I enjoyed two wines that I had never tried before. One was a red blend called a Tempranillo and the other a Sauvignon Blanc. Both were from the same winery, The Robelo Family Winery. This winery was new to me and I loved trying it out for the first time! The wines are from California and the story began in 1968 with Reynaldo, a Mexican migrant vineyard worker who now has his own winery and is living the American dream.
We enjoyed our glasses of wine over some superb home cooked meals. The white wine was light and refreshing while the red was full of cranberry, blackberry, cinnamon and spice aromas. It was flavorful and strong. We prefer red wine, but we were pleasantly surprised by the delicious crisp flavors of this white.
It is such a great idea having wine delivered right to your door. It saves a trip to the grocery or liquor store (depending on where you live) and allows to you try new wines that you may have never heard of before. With the California Wine club you get the Uncorked magazine plus your 2 wines a month with the Premier Club membership ($49.95 +sh). The convenience of the process is worth the membership.
Now that the UPS IDing me mystery is solved, it is proven, there isnt anything better than opening your door to a home delivery of wines. No liquor store. No lines. Just immediate wine at the door and in my hand!
