Flip Flop Wines - Review

FlipFlop Wines

I was recently given the opportunity to try 2 versions of FlipFlop Wines. I spent some time reading about the company and I have to tell you how impressed I am. I think it is truly wonderful that FlipFlop wines donates a pair of flip flops for every bottle of wine sold up to 100,000 pairs. The flipflops are given to Soles4Soles who delivers them to children and individuals in need. The program really touched me when I read that there are children that can not attend school because they do not have a pair of shoes to wear.  I love that flipflop wines not only produces amazing wine but they help out others in need.

Here is some background information on the person behind FlipFlop Wines
David Georges, Vintner

While working at an organic vegetable farm in the Mt. Shasta region of California, David discovered the art of grape growing. After planting a small vineyard on the farm, he was fascinated with wine, from managing the vineyard to tasting the fruits of his labor. Inspired to learn more, David attended the University of California at Davis first to study viticulture, and then added wine making coursework as well. David honed his wine making skills at well-known California wineries including Artesa and Davis Bynum.
In 2009, David began working on the wines that would become the inaugural vintage of flip flop. His goal is to stay true to each wine’s varietal character, and to make great tasting wines that don’t break the bank.

If you are looking for a fun new wine to try this summer give flipflop wines a try. I personally love the labels that remind me of living in the tropics. The best part is the wine is pretty darn good also!
