For review, I was sent two bottles of wine, one month’s shipment from Uncorked Ventures Wine Club. Uncorked Ventures offers you the chance to sample different wines every month! Choose from white wine, red wine, or pick one of each as I did. Continue on to read my review and see the delicious sangria I made using one of these wines…
Uncorked Ventures Wine Club offers three different monthly choices which are…

Sola – Chardonnay, 2013
Produced and Bottled by Ledgewood Creek Winery in Suisun Valley, California | SolaWinery.com
“Initial impression of rich floral and apple notes that translates into a lightly toasted almond, slightly creamy citrus finish. Delicious, balanced and elegant.”
Mercy Vineyards – Pinot Noir, 2010
Produced and Bottled by Mercy Vineyards in Buellton, California | MercyWines.com
“Monterey’s Arroyo Seco AVA is many things: windblown, numbingly cold, god laden, semi-arid, rock strewn, austerely beautiful. In essence, the perfect grape source for Mercy Vineyards.”
I’m not the biggest wine drinker, but I do enjoy a good wine. I was excited to review these two bottles of wine, because I’ve been wanting to review something like this since I turned 21. I haven’t had the chance to review the white wine yet (but doesn’t it sound delicious!?).
I thought I would used and try out the red wine by making a sangria! I’d never made a sangria before, and I kind of made up my own recipe. And if I do say so myself, it turned out rather well! I’ve been quite enjoying eating it like a fruit bowl and having a little glass of wine to go with it.
Overall, I like the wine I have tried and I look forward to trying the next once we’ve worked through what we already have open. I really like this service, the wine club. I think it’s a wonderful way to treat yourself to a monthly variety of wine you may not have tried. This would also make a great gift to the wine lover on your list, buy them a subscription!
