This week I got the chance to review Flip Flop Wines:
flipflop wines: to each, their own
With flipflop wines, we have embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion.
I really enjoyed doing this review. I love to have a glass of wine with a homemade dinner or at the end of a hard day. My favorites are whites but the more I try reds, the more I like them. My absolute favorite is Ice Wine and Moscato and I wish I could have tried theirs! I got to try Pinot Grigio, Pino Noir and Riesling.
This was my favorite wine. I tend to lean towards the sweet wines. (That’s probably why I LOVE ice wines!) We had this wine with broiled steak, twice baked potatoes and steamed broccoli.
We had ours with crockpot chicken, green beans and roasted red potatoes. I really enjoyed this wine. I could have gone for a second glass while I was drinking it but I’m finding I’m a real lightweight lately and I’m on Weight Watchers so I don’t want to use the points.
Soles4Souls has a simple concept: we procure shoes and get them to those in need.
In the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that hit Southeast Asia, Wayne Elsey, the Founder and CEO of Soles4Souls® Inc., felt compelled to do something. Like many of us, he did not know what to do. He was at home one night, watching TV and he saw a picture of a single shoe washing up on the beach. That triggered a few calls to some other executives in the footwear industry and the subsequent donation of a quarter of a million shoes to victims in the devastated countries.
A year later when Katrina hit, Wayne called the same group of friends, and they sent over a million pairs of shoes down to the gulf coast communities affected by the hurricane. In all honesty, he admits that he did not expect such an immediate and successful turnout. This left him wondering, why not start a non-profit and do this all the time? One year later, Soles4Souls was formally created.
It has been that simple: changing the world one pair at a time.
Soles4Souls receives large donations from footwear companies, retailers, churches, nonprofit ministries, civic groups, schools, and individuals and saw that this could become a full time organization. That’s why Soles4Souls was created – to facilitate the donations from these groups to the people who desperately need footwear.
You can visit Flip Flop Wines and purchase any of their wines for $7 a bottle.
I was given this wine for review in exchange for my opinions. All opinions are my own. Thank you to Flip Flop Wines for allowing this review. Photo credit to Rob Krueger Photography.
I’ll have to be on the lookout for these wines. Thanks!
Oh YUM!!! I really enjoyed their Pinot Grigio, but I really, really want to try their Moscato. Surprisingly, I have been enjoying more Reds as well and their Pinot Noir did not disappoint. (Btw, Ice Wines are my fave as well….so good!)
Thanks for sharing.
I haven’t seen these yet… I will keep an eye out for them.
