"YUM! Usually we only get reds...but with the hot summer months...we got brave and you recommended a lovely Handley Chardonnay (Dry Creek Valley). Oh my....we think it's grand. It is already 4:00 here on the East Coast...and our Memorial Day weekend has already started. A hearty thank you for never steering us wrong. Gold Medal Wine Club is everything you promised. Cheers!"

"My wife and I buy lots of wines (too much, she tells me!!)… lots of French, in particular, and many premium CA wines.. we are wine geeks, with about 1700 bottles.. so we are serious collectors….but we have always enjoyed Gold Medal's selections as we discover great deals and interesting CA wines we would not likely ever try (though, I did see that our absolute favorite CA winery, Miner, was a selection of one of the premium clubs…) .. I don’t know who picks the wines or what the process is, but there are not many `misses’.. . great job!!! I like to give friends and family Gold Medal as a gift too.. So. .thanx to all of you for putting out a quality product that I am always happy to recommend to folks."

"Just a quick note to tell you how much I love your wine club! We have given this gift to my parents for about 3 or 4 years now and they truly love it. I think if we tried to give them something else they would be disappointed! Your web site is very user-friendly - it is a pleasure to order this gift each year! I have recommended the Gold Medal Wine Club to many of my friends. It is a perfect gift."— J. Helsten

"Thanks Susan, that's great customer service. I know, because that is what I do. We sometimes make mistakes, but it is how quickly we fix them that people remember. Raymond is 85 years old and not able to get around very much. These shipments are like receiving a Christmas present for him. He loves red wine and we are now his hero. Michele and I will definitely send more wine to our family members for special occasions." — Mike and Michele Howard
"I'm calling in reference to Lauren in customer service. She is personally responsible for the best customer service experience I ever encountered. I had a great concern over a delivery issue of a gift. She took it upon herself to call the recipient which was unprecedented in my experience with
customer service in general. She should be commended for her professionalism and concern for me the customer. She represents you and your company in a capacity many owners can only hope for."
— With appreciation, Scott Muir
Comments on Featured Wines
"First wine received as a member… first taste of a Cabernet Franc...home run! Loved it!!!"
— Dawson Creek Cabernet Franc - C. Nicolin
"I loved this wine! A friend of mine invited me to a wine-tasting event. We were told to bring our favorite bottle of wine. I brought the Inheritance. I also didn't know we would be scoring the wines as we tasted. I actually won 1st place! This wine got the highest score out of about 25 red/white wines. It was a wonderful way to meet new people and tell them about the Gold Medal Wine Club!!!"
- Inheritance Syrah — Jennifer Berry
"A great wine for good price... definitely one to have on hand in the wine cellar."- 2002 Lehrer Syrah — Tom Murch
"My first of your wines - a gift from my husband. A rich, beautiful lingering flavor and perfect compliment to our wedding anniversary home cooked meal. Looking forward to many more evenings with my husband and your wines." Adler Fels Chardonnay — J. Salt
Comments on Corporate Gift Giving
"Thank you very much for your time and patience and most importantly your EXCELLENT customer service. I have to tell you last year in 2009 I stumbled upon Gold Medal’s website just browsing around looking for a wine club gift. The quick processing and ease of the website and customer service was great, hence is what brought me back to Gold Medal. The wines my Father in law received were outstanding and he is a difficult man to shop for. The presentation, accuracy of delivery and the product that is offered receives 5 stars. After taking the time to email you after my once again last minute gift idea craziness , I have to say you once again exceeded what I expected to be the final outcome. Thank you very much , especially for not letting my correspondence just fall off, as I am sure most companies just would not have bothered to follow up and I would have been just a customer order number. I want to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and you can definitely know that for the next occasion once this expires next year, as a customer I will definitely be back!" — Sincerely, Danielle Melchiorre
