My husband and I are wine drinkers. No I don’t mean we are whinoes, but we do enjoy a good glass of wine with our meals or sometimes as a way to relax after a stressful day. I even use wine to cook with and always have a few bottles around the house to use in recipes such as Chicken Marsala and my tasty secret barbecue sauce. Not to mention, it’s ideal to have some bottles on hand for entertaining purposes and drinking a glass has some health benefits too.
Recently Underdog Wine Merchants launched flipflop wines, a brand new collection of affordable wines that are a fantastic fit with today‟s more casual lifestyles. The hip collection consists of seven varieties including Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Grigio, Moscato, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Noir wines. Priced at only $7.00 a bottle the wine gives exceptional value yet still delivers the extraordinary aroma and flavor that wine lovers crave. Trust me your taste buds will not be disappointed and your pocket book will thank you!

I found all three wines to be fantastic. I’m looking forward to trying the other varieties. What I love about flipflop wines is the look and overall taste of the wine. The label gives the wine a young and relaxed feel while the taste is not lacking in robust flavor. I’m not a professional wine taster, but I can spot the general characteristics of a good wine and these wines are well balanced along with being delicious. My favorite of the three was the Pinot Grigio. It had wonderful crisp flavor and was very refreshing. The wine is perfect for serving on a warm summer day as cool me down treat. LOVED IT! Would I recommend flipflop wines? YES I would!
Tip A Glass For A Good Cause!
As part of the launch, flipflop wines have also partnered with Soles4Souls to give away one pair of flip-flop sandals for every bottle of wine purchased (up to 100,000 pairs for the first 100,000 bottles sold, where promotion is legal)! I love a company that gives back and every time you purchase a bottle of flipflop wines you’re helping put shoes on the feet of needy people around the world. The unique partnership allows you to enjoy a glass of affordable wine plus at the same time you will be tipping your glass to a good cause and making a personal positive difference in someone’s life. Frugal and smart is a winning combination!
