As they say, it’s the happiest time of the year. All the running around, in and out of stores, trying to find that perfect someone the perfect gift. Not to mention trying to keep everything hidden, getting the house and tree decorated, writing out Christmas cards and don’t forget the wrapping and shipping!
So what else could be better than to have a chance to relax and review some wines.
I was fortunate enough to review three different wines from Flipflop, but even before tasting any of them, I need to comment on the labels. They are fun, colorful and very catchy to the eye. Each label is full of information.
Cabernet Sauvignon – Full-bodied, Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry fruit, dark cherries and a long, lingering finish. This was my husband’s favorite, served with great steaks. It was a dry red wine which complimented our dinner very well.
Chardonnay – Medium-bodied, Chardonnay with pineapple, soft vanilla and a long lingering finish. This was my favorite, a medium dry white wine which I recommend serving it chilled.
Merlot – Medium-bodied, silky Merlot with plum and mocha notes, soft tannins and a balanced, luscious finish. Also another favorite of mine, a red merlot goes well with any hearty meal like chili.
What makes buying Flipflop Wines even better, is knowing that with each wine bottle purchased someone in need is
receiving a pair of flip flops through the Soles4Souls international shoe charity. Through the partnership between Soles4Souls and Flip Flop Wines over $100,000 from Flip Flop Wines proceeds has helped to distribute shoes to millions of people in need.

David Georges, creator of Flip Flop Wines, became fascinated with wine after planting a small vineyard of his own. He then went off to college to study viticulture and wine-making to create a “well-balanced wine that everyone can afford”. Mr. George has become not only a great wine maker but also loves to give back. That is why he has teamed up with Soles4Souls and donates shoes to those in need! Working with companies that give back is one of our passions here at Just Trying To Save Money!
