Great Gift Idea: Tasting Room

NEW LOGO 1 Great Gift Idea: Tasting Room


I love wine.  There is nothing better than coming home from a long hard day at work and pouring myself a chilled glass of it.  I’m by no means a wine connoisseur; I don’t drink certain kinds warm (yuck…all alcohol needs to be cold), I don’t “let it breathe” before drinking it, etc.  I just pour and enjoy!  LOL  I’m easy to please. icon smile Great Gift Idea: Tasting Room

About Tasting Room

Tasting Room is a great place to indulge my love of wine online.  They offer wine samplers, wine gift packs, wine by the glass, and full bottles of wine from all over the world!  They also offer a wine club where you pick your sampler, try the samples and them choose 2 full bottles of wine to buy from your favorites in the sampler!   They are a cool and unique way to buy wine for yourself to gift wine to someone you care about!

Review of Tasting Room

First of all I just want to say how stellar their customer service is.  The person I worked with to facilitate this review was extremely helpful.  When I said I know nothing about wine I was being honest…all I know is that I like white and blush and that red wine never fails to remind me of the wine at Church.  I also know that I tend to like the sweeter wine and don’t like dry wine at all.  So when I was tasked with picking out one of their forty-one samplers to review I could not have been more confused.  Thankfully the person I’m working with was kind enough to give me a recommendation based on my taste preferences and I ended up with the wonderful Sweet Wine Sampler Germany to California.

To say I was excited to receive my wine sampler from Tasting Room would be the understatement of the year.  When the package finally came in the mail (take note that someone over the age of 21 must be there to sign for it as it is alcohol), I tore into the package and paused long enough to admire how beautifully put together it was.

Once I admired everything I quickly removed all of the bottles and waited impatiently for them to chill.  Once that insanely long wait was over (anything over 5 minutes is considered a long wait, when waiting for wine lol), I poured myself a bottle of one of the red wines.  Now if you remember earlier I said I didn’t like red wine…well this one was not too bad.  So that means if you’re a red wine drinker you’ll likely love it, because I find most red wine undrinkable.  Thus began my nightly journey from California to Germany via Sweet Wine and let me tell you, it was a very tasty one.  There were 2 red wines and 4 white wines and I enjoyed every last one of them!  If you like sweet wine I would definitely recommend this sampler to you!

My only real complaint is that each bottle only filled up about a 1/2 a glass of wine, which was just enough to leave you wanting more!  In their defense it’s just me greedy, because it is a SAMPLER and each bottle holds more than enough wine to sample. icon wink Great Gift Idea: Tasting Room

Give the Gift of Tasting Room

If you know someone that enjoys wine you can’t go wrong with a gift from Tasting Room.  Sampler’s always make a fun gift, because it gives the person a chance to try 6 different kinds of wine; which is something that I found to be really fun!  However you aren’t limited to just samplers, as I stated above, they have gift packs, full bottles of wine, and so much more! (Hint, hint this would make a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift for the special someone

It’s easy to keep up with Tasting Room!  Check them out on their website, their blog, on facebook, on Twitter, on Pinterest, and on YouTube!

  1. You’re seriously LUCKY!! I want some wine to review!!!! LOL, just kidding ya =)

    I’m a lot like you, I would have had NO idea what to order. I always think I need to learn more about wine, but I never do. I do know I enjoy sweet wine. I may have to get myself a sampler like yours.

    Great review, btw!

  2. Haha you sound like me I HATE red wine but I love white wine mostly pinot grigio and chardonnay and it always has to be COLD (if i cannot wait…I’ve been seen with ice cubes in my wine lol) this would be a great gift for someone ***cough**myself**cough** ;)

  3. Maddie K. says:

    I never know what to order either. I went to a wine tasting once with my hubby and after several small sips I was feeling very buzzed. I don’t normally drink so I have no tolerance at all. Now that my daughter is 21 and likes wine more than I do I would love to take her out to such an “adult” only place.

  4. Wow! lucky you, I love wine tasting ;)

  5. Micaela P says:

    I love this idea! For myself, and as a gift! I hate trying out wines, buying a whole bottle, and not liking it. Then it just sits in my fridge until I find a use for it, or someone who likes it. This would be a much better way to try out wines!

    • Exactly! It’s a great way to find some new wines. Speaking of, have you ever tried Mascato? It’s a sweeter, white wine that I highly recommend!

  6. I would be overjoyed to receive a gift from Tasting Room, unfortunately it is illegal to ship alcohol to the state of Utah :(

  7. There is nothing I enjoy more that a nice dance & desert with a ice cold glass of the finest wine. I don’t do wine that often but when I do i always seem to be in a mood to dance even though dancing is not my thing. I love the taste of Moscato myself. One of the best wine reviews online. This was a great read Lisa!

  8. I don’t drink, period. I just don’t like the taste.

    • Those words just don’t compute. ;) I have friend that doesn’t drink and I like to tease him about it all the time. However, in truth, you save money and calories that way; that’s not a bad deal. Lol

  9. Lucky you! You get to taste new kinds of wine and all that! love wine but I don’t know if I have to guts to review it.

    • Why wouldn’t you have the guts to review it? I’m no expert, but I simply tasted the wine and told all of you my thoughts! I’m sure you’d do a great job! :)
