Review of Flipflop Wines

Hey Sasaki Time fans! I have another product review for you! This time it is from the fine folks at flipflop wines! If you have never heard of them, you will! They were started on the belief that, "great tasting wines do not need to break the bank"!

They also reached out to help Soles4Souls.For every bottle of flipflop wine purchased, Soles4Souls will distribute a pair of shoes to someone in need.

I was fortunate enough to receive three bottles of their wines to review. I invited my good friend Anthony over to taste them with me. He is an accomplished cook, baker and really knows his wines. I figured his expertise would help me immensely in this review.

The bottles came in this box.

Upon opening the box, this is what was inside. I immediately loved the bottles! The bright colors and the flipflops are very eye catching! I also loved that they included the tasting notes with the bottles. The bottle labels also have the same information on them and even give you suggestions on what to serve with each wine! This is an added plus for those of us that are not wine connoisseurs.

The first bottle we tried was the Pinot Noir. It was a nice bodied wine with a nice smooth taste. You could really pick up on the spices. My friend Anthony made pumpkin and chocolate whoopie pies to go with this wine and they were perfect. The spices in the pumpkin whoopie pies went incredibly well with the Pinot Noir as did the chocolate ones! Anthony suggested that he wanted to cook with this wine and was tempted to make a beef bourguignon.
The second bottle was tried was the Reisling. This was our favorite by far. One whiff and you could pick up the tropical aroma from the different fruits. It was nice and sweet with a smooth finish. Anthony suggested that the next bottle we make into a Sangria. That would be perfect after brunch or any Spring or Summer day.
Last but not least, we tried the Pinot Grigio. It was really nice and crisp. It had a nice dry aftertaste. You could really taste the pear. My friend Anthony said that he would want to add this into his marinara sauce.
So after a fantastic night of wine tasting, we are now both big fans of flipflop wines! Not only do they give back to those less fortunate but they really do make an exceptional variety of wines! Perhaps in our next review for flipflop wines, it will include the recipes and the dishes that my friend Anthony is thinking of making! Until next time Sasaki Time Fans, pick up a bottle of flipflop wine and enjoy your evening!
