Fortino Winery – Amazing Central Coast Wine From Gilroy California

As many of you know, I started the Wine Club Directory almost 10 years ago when I was living in the California Bay Area. Being so close to so many amazing wineries made every weekend excursion an excuse to drop by a local winery for a tasting or two. While almost everyone knows about Napa Valley, not many know of the great little wineries located South of the bay Area between San Jose and Monterey. I first discovered this area with my wife on one of our many camping trips to...

If you’re not already member, then you probably don’t get their email updates. Thus, here’s the latest news from the Celebrations Wine...

Fawnridge Winery In Auburn California

I recently spent 2 weeks out in California and was lucky enough to get up to the Sierra Foothills to check out some of the wineries there and the wine clubs they have to offer. One winery that I really enjoyed visiting was the Fawnridge Winery, which is a small, family owned winery in Auburn, California. The winery was started in 2000 by Stewart and Stephanie Perry who wanted to pursue their passion for wine. After realizing that the area’s excellent sun exposure and soil...

Wall Street Journal Wine Club Review

I had some friends over for dinner last night and we opened up two bottles of bliss that I had to share.

Two excellent choices for the night, let me tell you. These two wines were absolutely amazing and were gone within 30 minutes. Luckily the Wall Street Journal Wine Club sent me two...
