Sola Chardonnay from Uncorked Ventures

The fun thing about being a food blogger is that I get to sample all kinds of stuff. This time around, it's wine from a company called Uncorked Adventures, and they sent me two bottles of their wines.

Uncorked Ventures is a wine club - you know how it works, right? You sign up and get a monthly shipment of different wines to try. I've joined wine clubs before, and it's a nice way to sample a bunch of different wines. And since they're selecting them and they want you to keep buying, they're not going to send you anything that's weird and funky.

Uncorked has three different levels of wine club selections at different price ranges, so you can choose more affordable wines or more exclusive ones.

The other nice thing about the wines that Uncorked sells is that they're from actual wineries and they've been rated by people who rate wines. Long ago, I belonged to a wine club that only sold their own wines, so it's not like you could go to a wine shop and find anything from that same winery.

Uncorked also sells gift baskets, so if you're thinking about the holidays, you can buy someone a nice bottle (or two) of wine along with some extras.

The white wine I received was Sola Chardonnay. It wasn't a deep, okay chardonnay - instead it was a little lighter and crisp and fruity. Very balanced and drinkable. It would be a good wine for summer or for lighter meals, salads, or, just for a nice "watchin' TV" evening treat.

Along with the wine, I got a description of the winery and some information about the North Coast area of California. The company's website also has a whole lot of fun wine information in the blog section. Check it out, if you have a chance. Even if you don't buy any wine from them, you might find some information that could come in handy.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
