Heck yeah! This wine of the month club from Gold Medal Wine Clubs is a rock star.
Out of all of the different Wine of the Month Clubs that are available from this excellent company, Gold Medal Wine Club, this wine club, The Gold Medal Series is their most popular (by far), because of its affordability, amazing value, accolade-driven wine selections that are delivered with the most comprehensive and impressive supplemental / educational information available!
What the heck is “accolade-driven”? It means that they only consider wines that wine awards and score big.

But, if you want to know more about this specific club, the Gold Medal Series from Gold Medal Wine Club, then read on!
Garagiste (pronounced gar-uh-zheest‘) used to be an insult by French winemakers, who mocked US wines which were carefully produced in small batches, often in the garage of the winemaker. But those winemakers, who focused on creating high-quality wines, are getting the last laugh.
Garagiste wines most often call California's Paso Robles (central coast) region home, but the movement has spread throughout California, Oregon and Washington as well. The production runs are small (the Pinot Noir that I received only had 169 cases made!)
Each wine club selection is handcrafted by skilled and passionate winemakers in very small quantities. Limited to small-lot winemakers who typically produce less than 1,500 cases annually, means these wines are virtually impossible to find in the marketplace. If you or your gift recipients love the thought of finding rare and fascinating wines before they are discovered, this wine of the month club is the perfect choice and gift.
