Flip Flop Wines Review.

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.
If you know me well, you'll know I don't drink often and there are personal reasons behind that, but a glass of wine once in a while won't hurt, and I am sure glad I gave FlipFlop wines a try. I normally prefer a red wine if I'm trying wines, for many reasons, I have also  been a fan of dry wines.  

I got the chance to test out 2 of FlipFlop wines great variety of Wine, and was amazed at how much I liked then even though they were not  what I usually would drink I received:

I really like that each bottle comes with this little box that will tell you on sweet or how dry each wine is. This is the first wine I tried and was very happy with the taste is is just what the bottle said right in the middle a perfect blend of sweet and dry. I really enjoyed this bottle.Both bottles went down smooth, and easy and gave me a little daydream about being in a tropical place, which is great with the chilly weather we have had he in MI lately.

I really can't put my finger on what exactly is my favorite of FlipFlop Wine is, maybe it's the Labels full of tropical looking items, and flip flops, or the different colored labels for every different flavor. Could it be the $7.00 a bottle price tag on a bottle of wines that is just as good if not better then the more expensive boring labeled bottles?  Nope I think it has to be :

 

What a great company, I haven't seen then in stores by me just yet, but have heard it rumored they could be in a store near you very soon.
