Friday Fabulous Find- Flip Flop Wines

Recently I had the opportunity to review 3 wines a Pinot Noir, a Riesling and a Pinot Grigio from FlipFlop Wines. Before I tell you about the wines I want to tell you a little about what I like about the company.
Founded in 2009 by Vinter David Georges, Flip Flop Wines offers delicious wines for people of all economic levels. At $7.00 a bottle their wines are in-expensive not cheap. One of the things I like most about this company is their philosophy of giving back to the community. Currently Flip Flip Wines has partnered with Soles4Souls . For every bottle purchased a pair of flip flops will be donated to a person in need. How great is that?

The first bottle I tested was the Pinot Noir. 



Described as a medium-bodied with bright cherry, sweet spice and a supple, velvety finish, Full of hints of cola aroma and hints of vanilla.Between dry & medium dry.

Loved this wine! I'm a red wine gal so I was very eager to try one out. It was definitely dry but not too much. Subtle spice flavoring that I just could not put my finger on and a smooth lingering finish. I served this with chicken cacciatore and I actually used a cup of it in the recipe! Out of the 3 wines I received this was my favorite.

Next is The Pinot Grigio



 Describe as light-bodied, refreshing with tropical citrus, ripe pear, and a zesty clean finish .Between medium dry and medium sweet.

This description is just perfect for this wine. You can definitely taste the pear and this has a little kick on the way down. Just the right amount of sweetness with crisp finish.


Lastly was the Riesling.


Described as a medium bodied, complex with peach, apricot and melon which leads to a satisfying smooth finish.

I'm not a fan of sweet wines so this wine was the one I was least eager to try  but I can honestly say I really liked this wine.Sweet- definitely- but not so much that you couldn't enjoy the melody of flavors . Smooth finish with just the smallest aftertaste.

All in all I enjoyed these wines They are serious enough to be respected,  but in-expensive enough to never be pretentious.

In case you don't want to take my word for it, Wine Enthusiast Magazine just awarded 4 flipflop wines a "Best Buy" in the June issue, the FlipFlop Moscato received a "Double Gold"  at The San Francisco International Wine Competition & finally, "Real Simple" just selected flipflop Pinot Grigio as one of 10 summer whites and roses. 

How's that for accolades!
