Mama Nibbles: FlipFlop Wines - Review

FlipFlop Wines - Review




Flipflop wines embraced the movement toward individualistic expression, instead of manufacturing wines into some cookie-cutter style that’s all the rage. Our goal is to craft expressive, well-balanced wines that evoke just what the grapes inside intended, without being over-wrought or over-explained, and that can be enjoyed at any occasion.

I have always kind of just tip-toed around wine.  I absolutely love it don't get me wrong but I seem to always pick out the worst tasting ones, pair them with the wrong foods, find myself frowning at the expensive price tag or I lose my corkscrew.  I recently was awarded the opportunity to take a few FlipFlop wines out for a test drive.  I received Pinot Noir, Riesling and Pinot Grigio.  First of all the wines arrived very safely packaged, there was no way the bottles could get damaged during shipping and it made me feel special to know that they took such care in their packaging.  Secondly the wines come in neatly designed bottles, the graphics on the labels are very welcoming and they made me excited to try them.  Here is the best part...on the back of each bottle there is a label that tells you exactly what temperature your wine should be served, what foods it would compliment best plus what it smells and tastes like.  FlipFlop has taken wine and made it easy to be enjoyed by anyone, even the novice wine enthusiast.  You want to know, could it possibly get any better?  YES! no corkscrew will ever be needed to enjoy your FlipFlop wines!  I breathed a sigh of relief when I discovered this because I have had my fair share of losing the corkscrew and in a desperate need for a nightcap I ended up hacking the cork out of a bottle of wine with a paring knife.  The knife method took me about half an hour and then I had to strain the bits of cork out of my wine, by then I was so worked up I could not even enjoy it.  FlipFlop Wines are simple and affordable with amazing flavor, check them out below.  I can hardly wait to try the rest!









FlipFlop Riesling SRP $7- I loved this one!  This is a very food friendly wine because it could lend itself to a very large variety of cuisine.  We paired ours with spicy pork ribs and it was UH-mazing!  I also had a few sips with a ginger snap cookie, this was equally as delicious.









FlipFlop Pinot Noir SRP $7 - I made ice cream with this one and sipped on a glass while I was preparing it.  I made a plain ice cream base with a bit of extra sugar and let it cool.  Once the base was cooled I chilled it in my chiller machine and then added chocolate bits and smoked bacon, the end result was phenomenal and every bite was a bit of heaven.  I could taste the wine's spiciness, the hints of cherry and vanilla.  I absolutely enjoyed this.








FlipFlop Pinot Grigio SRP $7 - We had this one along with some homemade creamy, white chicken lasagna.  On the bottle this wine's description is "zesty" and it is just that, perfectly zesty and crisp.  The wine seemed to take on a whole new level of flavor as we sipped it along with our meal. I noted hints of almond and honeydew melon.  "Real Simple" magazine just selected flipflop Pinot Grigio as one of 10 summer whites and roses!




FlipFlop Gives Back:
FlipFlop Wines does something amazing, for every bottle you purchase they donate a pair of shoes to someone in need.  For many people in developing areas of the world, a pair of shoes is a rarity.  For children, some schools require shoes as a part of the uniform so some children cannot attend simply because they cannot afford shoes. 

Different kinds of flipflop wines you should try:
White wines:
Chardonnay
Riesling
Pinot Grigio
Moscato -

Red wines:
Cabernet Sauvignon
