Flip Flop Wines Review

You may remember last month that my family and friends enjoyed sampling some Merlot, Chardonay, and Cabernet Sauvignon courtesy of Flip Flop Wines.  The wines were a huge hit and I was even asked where they could be purchased.  When Flip Flop Wines sent me another new wine to try, I decided to share with a few close friends that hadn't yet been introduced to the Flip Flop Family.  They took it a step further and brought the bottle of Flip Flop Moscato to their Bunco game to have a small wine tasting. They really enjoyed it and finished the bottle.  One of my friends said it was "light and crisp", while another said that it had just the right amount of sweetness.   And we were all happy to find out that our local grocery store is now carrying Flip Flop Wines.
For those of you who don't remember, David Georges, the vintner of Flip Flop Wines, grew up in Southern California where the laid-back lifestyle included wearing flip flops most of the time.  He combined this laid-back style with his love for wines to create a "well-balanced wine that everyone can afford".  Unlike many inexpensive wines, Flip Flop Wines are top-notch.  For only $7 a bottle, you definitely aren't expecting the high quality that Flip Flop Wines deliver.

Now if it wasn't amazing enough that David Georges produced such a wonderful collection of wines at an affordable price, he has also teamed up with an amazing non-profit group, Soles4Souls.  Soles4Souls is a hard working organization that works on collecting used and new shoes for those in need.  "Shoes help prevent the spread of parasitic diseases that plague over 1.4 billion people worldwide, and they are basic human necessity".  For every bottle of wine purchased, Flip Flop Wines will donate one pair of shoes to someone in need.   Their goal is to donate 11 million shoes in 2011!   And they are hoping to get our help!  Just out this video below about their new "flippin' good deeds challenge".

And you can help them out by trying out a bottle today!  Also feel free to join them on Facebook.   They are a friendly group and always have some great discussions going on.

Disclosure:  I received 1 bottle of wine in exchange for my honest review.  I was under no obligation to write a positive review.  All opinions are honest and my own.
