flipflop Wines Review

In the evening after the kids go to bed, my husband and I will often enjoy a glass of wine together and talk about our day. Recently, we discovered a wonderful California crafted collection of seven wines that are perfect for those leisurely moments.

From Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio and Moscato flipflop wines has a wonderful selection of high quality, affordable wines to suit virtually every taste. Since it was created to be “always delicious and never pretentious”, I knew that flipflop would be just our style and we recently enjoyed a sampling of their offerings. I prefer sweeter wines and my husband enjoys a balanced wine that is full of body so I was confident that we would both find a wine from flipflop that we would enjoy.

For dinner, I had made homemade eggplant parmesan from fresh vegetables gathered in our organic garden. I learned more about the wines that I had received from flipflop in order to choose a pairing that would work best with this dish. I decided on the Pinot Grigio based on recommendations from flipflop and it was the perfect accompaniment. This wine has a taste that is “light-bodied and refreshing with tropical citrus, ripe pear and a zesty, clean finish.” To be honest, it is the first bottle of Pinot Grigio that I have every tasted and really enjoyed. It had very nice fruit notes and was so light and sassy that even my husband who does not normally like Pinot Grigio commented that it had a very nice taste.

Do you prefer a medium, dry red wine? If so, flipflop Pinot Noir would be a great choice since it is medium-bodied with bright cherry, sweet spice and a supple, velvety finish. What I noticed immediately upon opening this bottle of wine to enjoy with our grilled trout dinner is the wonderful aroma permeating from the bottle….it was just wonderful!

My favorite personal choice from the three wines that I have enjoyed from flipflop is the Riesling. I could really savor the taste of juicy peaches, apricot and melon which makes this medium-bodied wine absolutely delicious. On those hot, steamy Florida nights, I enjoy adding just a splash of club soda to a glass of Riesling and sitting outside by the pool…..it is so refreshing on a sweltering night. This would be a perfect choice for a backyard barbecue to be enjoyed with friends and family too.

Overall, I am really impressed with taste and quality of flipflop wines and I was delighted to learn how very affordable it is to purchase your favorite wine at only $7.00 for a bottle. Even more exciting, flipflop also has my favorite wines Moscato and Chardonnay…..I can’t wait to try those wines as well!
