Salute to International Wine Day!

Salute to International wine day!

Wine has been around for as many years as one can count and it’s that time of year again to raise your glass to International Wine Day. Salute!

Here’s some even better news. There are a number of health benefits to drinking a glass or two of wine. For example, moderate wine drinkers will lower their chance of liver disease, type two diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, and various forms of cancer. A wine or two has also been known to reduce bad cholesterol or LDL and increases good cholesterol  known as HDL.

Plus a glass of wine won’t add much to your waist line either with approximately 100 calories only, plus wine is fat and cholesterol free.

So what kind of wine should you choose to drink? Well if you are new to drinking wine, here are some tips to make you look like you know what you are talking about, including what to drink and eat to to increase your overall experience.

Note: There are many varieties of wine to choose from and here are eight of the main varieties.

Riesling

Riesling is a white grape from Germany. Bet you didn’t know that!? Pair a glass of riesling with turkey or hot food and dance the night away.

Pinot Gris

Pinot Gris is also another white wine you will enjoy. It comes from France and has a semi sweet taste which makes it very easy to drink for most people. Enjoy a Pinot Gris with a salad or mild cheese.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc is a very popular variety of white wine. It’s a white wine with a bit of honeydew and melon flavors mixed with a hint of mint, if you want to sound cool of course. Drink a Sauvignon Blanc wine with fish and white meat. For example, a sauvignon blanc goes great  with fish and chips!

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a dry white variety as well. The lemon flavor compliments seafood varieties like crab and shrimp and soft cheeses like triple cream brie. And is one of Australia’s most popular wine varieties.

Pinot Noir

Now to the red wines, and let’s start with a little berry picking shall we. Pinot Noir, a light-to-medium red wine, often tastes like cherry and cranberry, but it can have a hint of black raspberry cola depending on the region. Enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir with veal, duck and cheese like gruyere cheese.

Zinfandel

Feeling fruity? Zinfandel is a wine full of exotic fruit flavors. This medium-red wine goes well with chicken, Thai food and cheddar cheese. Try it some day, you wont be disappointed.

Syrah

Syrah tastes of blueberry, plum, tobacco, black pepper and more and has been selected in the Wine Of The Month Club, but don’t let the complexity of the flavour scare you, Syrah is a red wine that plays well with lamb, beef, and white cheddar. A great winter wine or enjoy it any time of the year.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied red wine variety. It tastes of black cherry, baking spices, black currant and cedar. Pair this drink with some smoked meats and aged cheddar to properly enjoy. A great colder weather wine, but you can enjoy it at any time of the year.

Now that you know a few tips on pairing your wines, have a great  National Wine Day!

What Is The Secret To Happiness?

I was reading a blog about happiness and was moved by some of the quotes. And so my gift today is to share. Enjoy..

Smile and be happy

Smile and be happy

“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” H.  Jackson Brown, Jr.

“Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it.” – Bernard Meltzer

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” – Dalai Lama

So the secret to happiness is there is no secret. We just have to make ourselves aware of it mentally, how we program our minds, embrace happiness and give more than we take because we’re all connected.

Kind regards,
Anne from Gift Of The Month Clubs

Wine Of The Month Scores 96 Points! Great Fathers Day Gift

Wine Of The Month Club members are in for another treat this month when they receive a wonderful bottle of red wine delivered to their home or office from the Mclaren Valley wine region of South Australia – that just happened to score 96 points from James Halliday!

James Halliday (famous Australian wine writer and critic) in his 2014 Australian Wine Companion gave this months Wine Of The Month Club selection an amazing  96 Points! And placed it in his “Best of Other Reds and Blends.”

“The colour is deep, the bouquet with strong black fruit aromas, and the seemingly inevitable touch of dark chocolate; a strong spice character runs through the palate, originally with red pepper, ageing into green pepper; outstanding tannin management is the key to an exceptionally good wine, one of the magic touches being a late decision to include the mataro in the blend, making it a complete wine.”

DUCKS IN a ROW Red Wine

DUCKS IN a ROW Red Wine

QUOTE from Glen James-Pritchard
DUCKS IN a ROW Winemaker

“All grapes were hand picked; small batch fermented and basket pressed before being blended and matured in old hogsheads. The vibrancy of Graciano is integral to balance the low acidity of Tempranillo and the Mataro adds further depth, structure and savoury qualities. It’s a hedonistic glimpse of McLaren Vale.”

Wine Of The Month Club Adds Value

The Wine Of The Month Club Australia has lowered prices and increased the average recommended retail price range per bottle of wine members receive.

First change:
“We’ve finally been able to drop Australia Posts shipping charges from $9.95 per month to a low $6.95,” said Anne from Gift Of The Month Clubs.

Second change:
The Wine Of The Month Club frequently asked questions page previously stated the average recommended retail price range per bottle of wine members could expect to receive was between $15 and $25. But things have changed since the first wine club of its kind started in 2013.

We have been able to increase the average recommended retail price  (per bottle of wine members receive) from $15 to $25 to $25 to $35.said Anne.

So for a monthly membership cost of $29.95 per month plus postage and handling the Wine Of The Month Club offers gift givers, gift recipients and corporate gift members a terrific deal.

“We’re buying more wine than when we started so we can negotiate better deals with vineyards and suppliers and pass the value on to members”, said Max, Head Wine Selector - Wine Of The Month Club.

Salute!

“Off The Menu” Rye Ale Selected For The Beer Of The Month Club

Every month we select a new beer for the Beer Of The Month Club

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

Cracking Open an Artic Fox Rye Ale

“We always try to surprise and delight our members with a wide selection of new and hard to find craft beers.” said Rob from Gift Of The Month Clubs“So we searched for and found the “off the menu” Rye Ale beer from the Arctic Fox micro brewery for this months Beer Of The Month Club.”

The Arctic Fox micro brewery has been operating for around a decade and could mainly be found promoting their craft beer at local markets and festivals. But this is a hard way to keep a micro brewery going in terms of sales and investment dollars needed to progress in an ever growing craft beer market so the partners decided to sell. However they encountered a few failed sale attempts with various buyers pulling out but was eventually bought by the Blood Brothers Brewery.

Dave Kepper took over as the manager of the Arctic Fox with years of brewing and liquor retailing experience behind him. “I’ve been managing the Arctic Fox since about 2008 but was involved in brewing and liquor sales for years before that”, said Dave.

Arctic Fox is an independent and authentic micro brewery located in the outer Melbourne suburb of Dandenong and are extremely passionate about making full flavored naturally brewed beer without preservatives. “We’re doing some great things at Arctic Fox and having a lot of fun making sure they’re all award winning standard”, said Dave with a smile while talking about their brewing process for the Rye Ale.

“Our Rye Ale uses up to 30% Rye which is pretty high and the grain gives a bitterness and spice we have to be careful with. Plus it’s got a citras nose and front pallet from sitting on Mandarin and Orange rinds which makes it a refreshing easy beer to drink.”

The Rye Ale isn’t on the Arctic Fox product list which makes it even more special for the Beer Of The Month Club members. “We’re like the television show where the guy finds off the menu specialty meals only the locals know about, except we do it with beer,” said Rob.

The Wine Of The Month Club Moves Up to the Number 4 Spot at Google

Wine of the month clubs originally started in the United States as a new type of corporate gift to reward clients, staff and associates. It quickly became a popular corporate gift and evolved in to consumer markets as a new way of giving where members receive a different “gift of the month” within the club’s genre each month for the duration of their membership.

“We’re the founder of the first Wine of the month club in Australia using the United States model, and considering Google didn’t even rank us in the top ten until recently it’s wonderful to be recognised,” said Alison from Gift Of The Month Clubs.

Google has elevated the Wine Of The Month Club to number 4 in the organic search results for the term “wine of the month” after spending months on the second and third results pages. “It’s a wonderful gift so to speak from Google and we’ll try to reach number one.”

Have you been looking for a personal or corporate gift? Try the Wine Of The Month Club, where members receive a different bottle of premium wine every month from boutique wineries around Australia and the world.
