Ascending Butterfly's Annual Dads N Grads Buying Guide Giveaway, brought to you by:

Dads N Grads Month has been a whirlwind this time around and seems to be moving along so quickly! Today is the first day of summer, the summer equinox, the longest day of sun of the year! A perfect day to be outdoors enjoying the sunlight and a perfect day to chill a nice bottle of wine!

Is your Dad a 'Oenophile'? (No folks it is NOT spelled 'Wino-Phile')

Are you celebrating an adult Grad, either College, Grad School, Med School or Law School and looking for a unique way to say 'Congratulations' and wish them well on their road ahead?

Not that the California Wine Club is exclusive to Dads or Grads, it's a great anytime gift for the wine connoisseur, wine novice, or someone like me who is somewhere in between the two!

The California Wine Club

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - World's BEST Job Ever!  - Since 1990, club owners Bruce and Pam Boring have traveled California’s wine country searching for limited-production wines from small, family-owned wineries dedicated to the art of making fine wine. Whether for yourself or a gift, California Wine Club membership is an adventure in wine tasting that will not be experienced anywhere else. They journey not only to Napa and Sonoma, but to less-explored wine regions like Santa Barbara, Monterey, the Sierra Foothills and beyond. When I visited the New York Wine Festival, this is one of the things I loved, getting the chance to sample wines that weren't always readily available everywhere, but when I went to try to find some of them I couldn't. Now with the California Wine Club I get the best of that experience right to my door! And I don't know about you but I want to be Pam when I grow up. (Whenever that is!) That has to be the best job ever! (or maybe I should marry a Vintner?)

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Be The Show Off In Your Circle - More than three-quarters of California’s 2,100+ wineries are small, boutique, mom-and-pop operations whose wines never travel beyond their local markets and private customer lists. You will definitely be the one in the know in your wine circle with California Wine Club. Let your friends think you just came back from a Vineyard trip without the price of the airfare (and sans the airport pat down or loss of privacy scanner!)

 Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Membership costs nothing, you can cancel anytime, and every wine is 100% guaranteed. - Like a good mobile carrier, there is nothing better than no contracts and no commitments!

Here's what I tried:

I tried: I had the chance to try out the 2007 Bixler Union Island Red Table Wine which is a blend of Merlot, Syrah and Petite. This versatile wine shows very rich, ripe, forward fruit, with flavors of ripe plums, cherries, blackberries and a hint of toasty oak.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Crafted to be both approachable and versatile, pairing nicely with most any grilled red meat, sausages, stews, hearty soups, pizza, pasta and hamburgers. Being nicely balanced and silky smooth, this wine also works well as a cocktail - by the fireplace, at picnics or at your next party!


I tried: I had the chance to try out the 2008 Bixler Vineyards Union Island White Table Wine shows of citrus, with rich, ripe fruit and flavors of grapefruit and a hint of banana. No oak was used during aging, allowing the ripe fruit to be fully expressed in the finished wine.

Food Pairing Suggestions: Created to be very approachable and will compliment grilled chicken, pasta with pesto or white sauce, many fish dishes and will also make a great patio sipper or cocktail wine out on the boat or at the beach. (Please follow all local beach regulations, and be sure to drink responsibly, a drunk butterfly is NOT cute! :-)

My Take

I have a very weird palate and in terms of preference it's (extra dry) Champagne first, then White Wine with Reds coming in third. I have a taste for dry champagne and my favorite is actually one that is not the  most expensive, but I find it the superior choice for MY palate. When I collaborated with California Wine Club they took the time to get a sense of my tastes and what I like and don't like flavor wise. And when the Bixler wines arrived at my door, I approached them with a sense of adventure, I had no idea what I was in for. I will admit I went straight for my comfort zone and tried out the white first.

It almost didn't make it as a pairing with the meal I was making, it was THAT good. I like to make Beurre Blanc sauce with my fish, and so I opened it to use in my sauce, before cooking with it, I knew I should taste it and make sure I was happy with the flavor, I was literally blown away when I took my first sip and found that it tasted exactly like my favorite brut cava extra dry champagne! It tasted just like it without the bubbles. I had to remind myself that some was going into my beurre blanc and the rest was supposed to be for dinner! I'll share my personal pics of it with the meal I prepared very soon. It is recommended to use this wine within a year of shipment, and I see why, it's bursting with flavor, and I'd be surprised if anyone could let this just sit for even a year nevertheless going past the year mark!

I was so astonished with how much I sincerely enjoyed the white that I couldn't wait to crack open the red! The red was a surprise also! I've tried less red than white, so I'm not going to pretend I have the biggest base of comparison, but I found it refreshing, and what I don't like about many reds is this strong tang that comes after the sip, I don't particularly find that strong tang pleasing to my palate. When I've gone to restaurants I've fallen in love with a few House reds, but they are never for sale (ahem, cough cough Cipriani's), at least now I can have my own 'House' Red! Delivered right to my door, does it get better? So there, Cipriani's with your delicious House Red that I cannot have, TAKE THAT! :)

I'm not going to say that I'll ever reach Sommelier level of expertise, but I really do enjoy Bixler Wines and very highly recommend them, and very highly recommend California Wine Club, their personalized service made this at home 'tasting' an absolute pleasant surprise and a total pleasure.

DEAL FOR YOU: Try out a shipment with no obligation to continue, you can choose the standard shipment of one red and one white or you can choose 2 bottles red or white. Enter promo code: ascending

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - WIN IT! - Ascending Butterfly and our new friends at California Wine Club have a very special surprise for 1 lucky winner! 1 winner will get to try out the California Wine Club and experience at home delivery of one red wine and one white wine. (Winner will receive the vineyard being featured at the time of the win, they may or may not receive the same wines I tried).

  177. I think the best advice I've given a high school grad is, "You don't have to go to college the day after you graduate high school. Get some experience under your belt. Travel. Meet people. Try new foods! Explore!" I was forced into college immediately after high school graduation and wasnt mature enough to take it all in yet. I traveled the world, went back to college at 30 and earned 2 bachelor's degrees in 4 years. It's all about timing. Life is a journey and we should each take it in our own way.
