Wine and Chocolate – A Gift My Mom Would Love.

Valentines Day.  Mother's Day.  Mom's Birthday.  Christmas.  When it's time to give your mom a gift, we thought we'd take a moment to share a delicious gift suggestion in order to make your mom a super happy mom.

In short:  It's Wine and Chocolate!

As Forrest Gump says, they go together like peas and carrots.  (But I prefer wine and chocolate.)

Just a couple months ago, as I was shopping at Target for Valentines Day gifts, I saw this “Wine Pairing Kit” from Ghirardelli that I had to purchase for myself!  I took this picture of my find.

I neglected to get my mom Wine and Chocolate on Valentines Day.

I neglected to get my mom Wine and Chocolate on Valentines Day.

I ran across this picture recently, and it reminded me that (1) Chocolate and Wine make a great gift and (2) I didn't get my mom a valentine.  Now, I can make up for it on Mother's Day!

If your mom, like mine, would love wine and chocolate, I have two suggested Wine Club Companies that can accommodate.  There are a few choices to fit your budget and tastes.  (My mom likes both red and white, so I'm getting her choice number 1 below, this one.)

Wine Club #1 –  Gold Medal Wine Club.

Gold Medal Wine Club consistently delivers high quality wines with high-production value “tasting notes” (that's more like a mini-magazine about the wine you get than simple “tasting notes”.)

NOTE:  Don't let their confusing order form scare you.  You're ordering a set-period wine delivery at a set price of either the Gold Series (your choice of Red Only or Red & White) or the Platinum Series.  In addition, they're including the gourmet chocolates and the fancy gift box.  (They just show those as additional line items in the cart, with a $0 cost.)

For Mother's Day, Gold Medal offers 3 Choices.

WCG - Gold Medal Wine Club Wine and Chocolate PackageChocolate and Wine, So Devine!

Starting at $111.00, including three shipments of the Gold Series Wine Club.   Each shipment features two hard-to-find, medal-winning wines (one Red and one White) from boutique Californian wineries with their fun and informative color publication, The Wine Press. In the first shipment, this special Gold Series Wine Club gift includes eight delectable hand-made gourmet truffles by Jessica’s Foster’s Confections. The wines are wrapped in organza cloth gift bags tied with bows plus your personalized Gift Card. All delivered in the artist-commissioned Wine Country Gift Box. Give a gift she will love to open again and again.

WCG - Gold Medal Wine Club Wine and Chocolate Package2 Reds and 8 Truffles — a perfect 10!

Starting at $117, including three shipments of Gold Series Wine Club. Each shipment features two hard-to-find, medal-winning Red wines from boutique Californian wineries with their fun and informative color publication, The Wine Press. In the first shipment, this special Gold Series Wine Club gift includes eight delectable hand-made gourmet truffles by Jessica’s Foster’s Confections. The wines are wrapped in organza cloth gift bags tied with bows plus your personalized Gift Card. All delivered in the artist-commissioned Wine Country Gift Box.

WCG - Gold Medal Wine Club Wine and Chocolate PackagePremium Wines for Premium Moms!

Starting at $89.00, including 1 shipment of the Platinum Series Wine Club.  Each shipment features two premium 90+ rated, award-winning Red wines from two different boutique Californian wineries with their informative Platinum publication.

Each wine is wrapped in organza cloth gift bags tied with bows plus your personalized Gift Card. Delivered to their door in the artist-commissioned Wine Country Gift Box. Choose from 1 to 12 months. Give a gift she will love to open again and again

Wine Club #2:  Monthly Clubs 

Another excellent source of delicious, gourmet chocolates paired with top-notch wines is Monthly Clubs.  However, you don't have to wait for Mother's day (they don't have a specific “Mothers Day Promotion” like Gold Medal does).  With Monthly Clubs, you simply select their Chocolate of the Month Club to accompany any of their Wine of the Month Clubs that you prefer. (Click here to “build your own” gift with Monthly Clubs.)

Although the shipping costs are relatively high, when compared to the wine or chocolate prices — the ordering process is really cool!  You have complete control over everything.  You can select the specific months to deliver your gift and within each month's delivery, you can select the specific club selections you want delivered!  Very slick.

So, I'll be getting my mom wine and chocolate this as a gift.  Will you?

One last thing, in my valentines day gift box from Ghiradalli, they included some cool little tasting cards.  I thought I'd scan the front and back of them in here, for you.  Maybe it can come in handy when you're tasting wine with Mom this Mother's day!
