The California Wine Club – Pacific Northwest Review

 

The California Wine Club long ago expanded beyond offering just California wines. They have taken their hands-on approach of selecting wines from unique, boutique wineries and created the Pacific Northwest Series.

Two bottles of wine per shipment from artisinal wineries in Oregon and Washington.

Included with each shipment is the newsletter, Uncorked, which tells about the winery from which the wine came as well as information about the wine itself and other general wine facts. You can also find on the website each month recipes that pair with each wine. Between the newsletter and the information included specifically for the club you will get general wine tips and recipes plus tasting notes for the bottles in your shipment.

Unlike most other clubs, the Pacific Northwest Wine Club ships every other month. You can also choose to have it shipped quarterly. You will receive either 1 red and 1 white wine or 2 reds. If choose 2 reds, they will be the same wine.

I didn't know what to expect from Oregon and Washington wines but through this club have learned that they specialize in Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, two of my favorites. I've enjoyed the wines so much after my first 2 shipments that it is quickly becoming one of my favorite clubs from a quality standpoint. If you are a fan of those two varietals and others like them, this might become your favorite club as well!

The price of the club varies each month depending upon which wines are included but generally it will run $77-82 a shipment. If you order a gift of 3 or 6 months paid in advance, you will save $10-20.

PROS:
  • Hand-picked from Artisan Wineries
  • Includes Uncorked, Guide to Winery and Wines
  • Gift subscriptions available

CONS:
  • Not available monthly

As with their other clubs, The California Wine Club also includes some nice bonus items from time to time in your shipments including note cards, wine credits, and even gourmet items. It makes it a fun club to receive on a regular basis because each month is just a little bit different.

The Pacific Northwest Series from The California Wine Club makes a nice club for yourself if you like the varietals from that region of the United States and would also make a nice gift for people who appreciate good domestic wines. Watch my video for even more information and to see what you are getting in each shipment.
