Welcoming Autumn with California Fruit Wine Co.

It was a warm but windy afternoon. The clouds looked like giant tufts of cotton candy slowly making their way across the azure skies. Fred played The Drums from his iPhone as I sat on a lawn chair overlooking the patio, leisurely chewing on an olive. It was the perfect balance — celebrating the end of summer while welcoming autumn.

We sat there casually sipping on our Pomegranate Wine from California Fruit Wine Co.* (CFWCO). I added a few blueberries into the glass to complement the color & flavor. If you recall from this post, I was excited about becoming a founding member for their new Online Wine Club, a seasonally curated wine box that comes once a month. Don't mind if I do.

Club members can choose between the two wine box ($27) or the four wine box ($45). I received the four wine box. Because wine not? Although that's the most overused wine joke in the entire universe, I'm sorry I had to say it.

CFWCO wines are 100% natural. No artificial flavors. No added colors. The flavor & color of each wine comes directly from the fruit itself, which is something I can wholeheartedly appreciate. Despite the fruitiness, these are not dessert wines.

The Pomegranate Wine is tart & fruity. It almost tastes like a muted fruit juice or a blend of actual genuine pomegranate juice mixed with wine. The flavors are smooth, made straight from pomegranates.

Pineapple Wine tasted just about as delightful as I anticipated. The pineapple is fragrant, very evident, & sweet. It basically tastes like pineapple juice, so this is something to keep in mind whilst drinking. This makes the perfect mixer for a cocktail, just saying.

As a seasonal treat, the Cranberry Wine is absolutely perfect for autumn. It has a bold zest & crisp bitterness. It tastes like a true cranberry juice & would make a wonderful addition to any holiday dinner.

Yum! This Pumpkin Spice Wine is one of the most authentic pumpkin tasting drinks I've ever had. It tastes like the actual fruit — pumpkin— not some pumpkin flavored, pumpkin-esque concoction. It had the mildest flavor of the four wines I tried.

I'd easily purchase the two wine box because these genuinely taste amazing. You can skip any month or cancel if you don't need new wine, but let's face it, you will. Become a founding member yourself & use promo code carmen to receive free shipping on your first 2-Bottle Wine Club purchase. Overall, I had a stellar experience with @cfwco & the #fruitwinenation

 Which wine flavor sounds best to you? Would you try a wine club like CFWCO? :]
