Wine Wednesday: Flip Flop Pinot Grigio

Hey there, Wine Wednesday!  This week, we are featuring a wine that I have long avoided.  Flip Flop Pinot Grigio.  To be honest, the only reason I avoided this wine was because it was called Flip Flop.  I don't know why, it just rubbed me the wrong way.  But K suggested we try it, and I decided to put aside my name snobbery so that I could bring you all a new review.  Do you see the sacrifices I make for you readers?  And by "readers", I mean my mom and my cousin.  Oh hey, Mom!

Anyway, after purchasing this bottle, I realized that part of the reason this wine is called Flip Flop is because the proceeds benefit Soles 4 Souls, which is a shoe and clothing charity.  So, sort of like when you buy a pair of Toms, your purchase helps provide shoes to someone in need.  Ok, Flip Flop.  Bonus points for charity.  Now I feel bad about judging you for your name before.

Anyway, back to the task at hand, which is the wine.  To be honest, this wine was exactly what I expected.  It wasn't a bad bottle of wine, but it was pretty much exactly what you would expect to get for seven dollars.  It was light and refreshing, with balanced flavors.  Nothing really stood out to me about this wine.  Although it was fine, I don't think it will be replacing my fallback cheap wines anytime soon.
