While the Borings profession may sound luxurious, enjoying the fruits of their labor doesn’t need to be costly. In fact, The California wine clubs slogan is you "don't have to drink expensively to drink well." According to Bruce there’s “no question that $40 to $80 wines can be very good. But, we have featured hundreds of $15 to $25 wines that in a blind tasting would come out ahead of those pricier wines. Campus Oaks 2010 Zinfandel is a prime example…or Milla Handley's $25, 2007 Anderson Valley Pinot Noir with 10 Gold Medals in 10 different wine competitions.”
In the coming year, the couple reveals consumers will start to see some excellent 2010 Chardonnays available, as well as 2009 Cabernets. If you like alternative whites, they suggest opting for fresh young Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc or Viogner (2011 or 2012 vintages).
“At The California Wine Club, we treat wine like an adventure,” says Bruce. But unlike most crusades, this one comes with little risk. “You will love the wine, and if you don’t we will replace it. That’s our 100% guarantee.”
