What do we love? We love wine, of course! But we also love viticulture. We love the stories that develop over a bottle of wine. We love visiting wineries. We love food and wine. We love the living, breathing qualities of wine. We love that feeling we get after a frazzling day of work and finally having the chance to plop down on the couch with a glass of wine. But what we really love, what truly makes our hearts sing, is sharing these experiences with others! Its why we do what we do – because sharing wine with others can be one of the most rewarding experiences out there, especially when what we’re sharing is a truly fabulous bottle. We’re in the business of bringing high quality wines to your door; this much is obvious from our website. But what’s not so obvious is the amount we’re willing to bend our memberships to make them something that suits your needs. Which brings us to our last love, giving you what you really want.
I’ll use the Gold Series to set an example of the kind of tweaking we can do to your membership. The Gold Series is the most popular of our five wine club memberships. It is the least expensive of the selections, but the wines are high quality and very versatile. The website explains that the standard membership consists of two highly sought after small production, California wines, sent out on a monthly basis. Generally, it is one red and one white, but sometimes two different reds. The website also offers a Red only or White only option. But, what’s not advertised are alterations to this: if it is your preference, we can make sure that we always send you one red and one white, even in the months when “two reds” is the standard mix. Or, maybe you like red wine, but only Cabernet and Merlot, and in terms of white, you want to avoid Chardonnay and Viognier? (This is all hypothetical, of course. I can’t imagine why anyone would limit himself or herself in this way, but I do understand people have their preferences, and sometimes you just know what you like!) Well, to sum it up, we can accommodate these requests as well. Perhaps location is your thing. We can send you a shipment only when we feature wines from a particular area like Napa Valley. We’ll work with you to find out your particular preferences. In months that we feature something you’d rather not receive, we can send you something from a previous month’s selection, or we can skip that month entirely, or maybe there’s something else you want to do. Fine by us!
And what if two bottles each month just isn’t enough for you? (Now, we’re speaking my language…) The website offers a four bottle membership, which is essentially two of each of the featured wines from the month. But, believe me, by no means does it have to stop there. If you’d like to have four bottles each month but want three reds and one white, we can do that. Or three whites and one red? Yes! Like to try six wines each shipment? Yep, we can do that too. There is virtually no limit to the number of bottles we send you in a month.
And here’s another thing. Moving from the topic of wine selection to frequency of shipments, the website offers monthly, every-other, or quarterly shipments. But we actually can send shipments any time and as often as you like. If you want to have shipments only in months ending in “y”, we can do that. Or, only with the months with a major holiday, we can do that, too. As often as you would like a shipment, we’ll send one your way.
Want to save a few bucks on shipping costs? How about joining a club membership on a quarterly basis, but receiving all the wines from that quarter at once? Keeping to the example of the Gold Series, you could receive the wines we featured in January, February and March all together in March (totaling 6 different wines in March), then continue on a quarterly basis from there. It will save you money on shipping, but the only downside is that you’ll have to wait two months in between shipments…
Like the look of two of our Series, but can’t decide which one to choose and joining both is going to be too much wine? How about alternating? You could join the Gold Series every other month of the year, and in the alternate months, receive one of our premium clubs, like the Platinum or Diamond Series. You could even receive the Platinum Series on a monthly basis, but in your and your partner’s birthday months, treat yourselves to our highest rated wines club membership, the Diamond Series. Don’t let us stop you…Go wild! Get creative!
What I’m trying to make obvious for you is that this is YOUR membership. Don’t let the website fool you – we are YES people and we want you to have a great experience with the wine club. If that means you want only 92+ rated wines from Monterey and Napa Valley and you want them only in the months of the year when you visit your Aunt Sadie at her home in Boulder, Colorado, well, that’s just peachy with us. We’ll send ‘em your way. Just tell Aunt Sadie to share!

Remember when you were little, and you spent all day working so hard at making that perfect gift for mom for Mother’s Day? It took hours of preparation and focused energy, which was, let’s be honest here, a bonus gift for mom that you were so happily–and quietly– working on your masterpiece… You poured your little heart and soul into it- a painting, a new ruler made from a stick, a sculpture of her favorite pet made from clay - Sometimes the end product resulted in that fateful question that helped decipher its meaning, “Oh..honey…it’s delightful! Tell me more about this ‘creation’!” But regardless of what you were making, it was always going to be awesome because it was from the heart.
I remember one Mother’s Day, my little sister and I had the brilliant idea to create a photo album full of pictures of none other than her darling little angels. We were probably 7 & 5 years old at the time. I remember thinking that we couldn’t use mere paper for the album, because that was too flimsy. We needed something sturdier that would withstand the true test of time, as we were sure this was going to be kept for centuries to come. We always had an abundance of leather around the house, as mom designed leather wallets at that time. Perfect. For hours on end we locked ourselves in the back rooms and searched through endless family photo albums, pulling out pictures that we thought she would like. After making our selections, we glued them onto the leather “sheets” of the album pages, cut from her leather inventory. We bound the pages with small strips of leather from the same source. This present was going to be the end-all of amazing gifts.
As an adult looking back, I can just about imagine the absolute shock in her eyes as she unwrapped her homemade gift to find that her most favorite family pictures and portraits had been ripped from their resting places and glued, yes glued, onto soft leather album pages, captioned with our names in silver permanent marker, just in case anyone forgot. And as a bonus, this was done in the 80′s, before the age of digital cameras, and I’m certain those were the only copies of the prints. Just for you, Mom, and we did it all by ourselves.
Now, I’m sure that like all homemade gifts that children make for their parents, she did treasure it in the special way that only mothers can. To us, her smiling face and hugs in return were satisfaction enough that we had yet again brilliantly displayed how much we loved her on Mother’s Day (even though I never saw that album ever again…)
For the safety of household family portraits everywhere, kids grow up. As an adult, my ability to put gifts together has changed with my upgrade from the “50 cents-per-household-chore” budget. But that same feeling remains – the desire to WOW mom with perfect gift that shows her that her little angel still loves her dearly. Because of this, I was delighted to see the selections that Gold Medal Wine Club is offering for Mother’s Day this year. Check them out! Choose from gift baskets, gift packs or FREE items with purchase of a membership. My favorites are the gift baskets — such attention to detail. Plus, what mom can resist a basket that’s full of goodies designed especially for her?!
Mother’s Day is May 9, just around the corner…. Give the gift of award-winning, hard-to-find wines this year, and show her how much you love her without spending six hours terrorizing the family portraits with a gluestick!

Gold Medal Wine Club offers a Platinum Series Plus! selection each month. Last month’s Respite 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is, in a word, stellar. If there’s any reason at all to join the Plus! program, this bottle might be it, and might be worth it simply for the potential bragging rights.
I attended a party over the weekend and was asked to bring a bottle of wine for all to enjoy. Normally I’m not fazed by this type of request, however, I became worried as the realization kicked in that I’d be in attendance with some really knowledgeable wine folks.
<Insert panic here.>
Now, don’t get me wrong, I always find joy in trying a new bottle. The living, breathing qualities of the life of wine intrigue me, and I’m always excited at the prospect of opening a highly rated bottle. But when it comes to bringing an offering to a party of well-versed wine enthusiasts, my excitement quickly melts away to apprehension. I think to myself, “Don’t appear pretentious by bringing an overly expensive wine, but don’t underachieve either. Above all, don’t let on that I’m nervous about it.” Anyone been here before?
After checking my wine cellar, I decided on Respite 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, a brave choice because I had no idea what food was to be served. With such a hearty Cabernet in hand, I could really hit or miss the food pairing. Also, I’d never tried this particular bottle before. I knew it would be good, Wine Enthusiast recently awarded it 91 Points, but they also pointed out that it might want a few more years in the cellar.
As I walked into the party, I was greeted by eye contact, then bottle contact as my selection was scrutinized. “I’ve never heard of that winery, we must open it up,” my host offered. I smiled and glanced around the room to the tables of hour d’ourves – so many tables of food that a formal dinner had to be out of the question. A selection of various antipasto-type finger foods including cheeses, marinated veggies, breads, tapenades and fruit plates were meticulously displayed, and then I saw, jackpot, tapas portion sized steaks, fish, and meaty lasagna. Hurdle number one, pairing, conquered.
We opened the bottle and without decanting or aerating, the wine was quickly dispersed into wine glasses that seemed to appear out of every corner of the room. Swirl, sniff, “ooh’s” and “ah’s” at the aromas of fruit and red currants, followed by the ever fateful first sips. As each person took a mouthful, the reaction was priceless as eyes lit up around the kitchen island and met my gaze with delighted squints and smiles. And let me say, I also thoroughly enjoyed those few seconds, as the wine filtered through my senses. Delectable. The structure and balance were exactly on par with the high standards of this group, and might I say as well that the Wine Enthusiast must have rated this wine a couple of years ago, because it is outstanding right now.
The rest of the night was highly enjoyable, but it was extra sweet because I had officially stamped a great impression upon the group, achieving credibility and bragging rights on having such great taste in wine. The best part? I didn’t have to find this bottle, it came to my doorstep and all I had to do was add the Plus! bottle to my regular shipment. Plus! wines really are “all that” and more!
If you haven’t done so already, you might consider adding a Plus Bottle to your wine club membership. The wines featured with that program are rare, exquisite, and downright tasty! There’s simply not enough quantity to feature the bottles to everyone, which is why it is offered as an add-on. This extra bottle is available for Gold, Platinum or Diamond Series memberships , and may be included in every shipment or as often as you like. It simply adds that something extra and special to an already great thing. Try it out, even just once in your next shipment. I know you won’t be disappointed, and maybe, just maybe, it will bring you bragging rights at your next party.

Since their establishment in 1981, White Oak Vineyards of Sonoma County, California has enjoyed a reputation as one of Sonoma’s best wineries. Not because they spent marketing dollars to get the word out, but because the quality of their wines speak for themselves. Their wines have won the “Sweepstakes” at the Sonoma County Wine Festival twice. (In ’90 and ’06) This award is regarded as the most important wine award not only in Sonoma, but throughout California.
Recently, with the help of investors, Bill Myers (White Oak winery owner) acquired a unique parcel of land in Alexander Valley to expand the operation. The property contained some sixteen acres of old vine Zinfandel that had been planted sometime during the 1920s and now houses White Oak’s new winery and tasting room, a splendid Mediterranean-inspired villa that Bill Myers designed and built almost by hand.
The new acquisition adds to White Oak’s 325-acre ranch in Sonoma’s Russian River Region that is planted entirely in Chardonnay and that produces unusually high-caliber fruit, and 420 acres in Napa Valley that is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Malbec and Syrah.
Myer’s goal has been to do well even in a down economy. He has accomplished his goal and attributes this to to the fact that White Oak’s wines are perceived as exceptional values in that national and international marketplace.
Gold Medal features the White Oak Vineyards & Winery’s 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and 2005 Syrah for the most recent Gold Series wine club selection. We consider both of these wines excellent values.
Connoisseurs’ Guide awarded this Cabernet vintage 90 points and names it a ‘best buy’. Wine & Spirits awarded the 2005 Napa Valley Syrah 90 Points. The Syrah also received a Gold Medal from the Orange County Wine Society Commercial Wine Competition and an 88 from Connoisseurs’ Guide.
Gold Medal Wine Club is also offering the 2008 Chardonnay as a special selection wine. As a brand new release, when the 2008 Russian River Valley Chardonnay is sent out for review in the coming months, we are confident it will garner both the attention and accolades to match those of its popular predecessors.
“When we started in Healdsburg, there wasn’t any money for marketing or anything. It was simply word of mouth and most of our customers were from the local area. I realized that if I could make wines that impressed these people who had a whole assortment of wines and wineries to choose from, I might just be able to make it. Over the years I have made some incredible friends and they have enjoyed some remarkable wines.”
We hope our Gold Medal Wine Club members will enjoy these wines as much as we have. As always, we have a limited amount of these wines available for sale in our wine store . Whether you are a member or not, you can order White Oak wines at discount prices (deeper discounts are available for wine club members).
Enjoy and Cheers!

It’s not too late to get your wine gifts delivered by Christmas. Gold Medal is offering a free shipping upgrade to ensure that your gift gets there on time.
We have five exciting wine clubs to choose from. They all make a great gift for that special someone in your life.

Back in 1992, when the Gallup Poll first started asking consumers about their alcohol drinking habits just 27% of consumers preferred wine over beer. This trend has been steadily reversing. Beer drinking has been more or less steadily declining, while wine consumption continues to grow.
>Learning about wine can be an intimidating process and unlike beer, wine consumption requires that you know a bit about what you are drinking. Wine is a complex beverage which can enhance any dining experience if the wine/food pairing is correct. For novice wine drinkers, the task of learning about grapes, vintages, regions, wineries and pairings can be overwhelming. It doesn’t help that the choices are seemingly endless, there is an entire vocabulary that needs to be acquired. Historically there has been a bit of ‘snobbery’ associated with the knowledge of wine making the acquisition of knowledge sometimes uncomfortable.
Here at Gold Medal Wine Club, we love new wine drinkers, and we work hard to provide interesting, informative facts, tasting notes and musings with each wine shipment. In the comfort of your own home, you can taste our selections while reading about the wine, the winery, the wine region, and the grapes. Additionally, most of our wines now have video tasting notes that you can view on our website. Our staff collectively reviews each and every selection and provides to you notes on aromas and flavors to look for in each bottle. Each one of our newsletters contains enough information for you to get a sense of time, place and work that goes into the art of winemaking. After actively participating in tasting and reading for a few consecutive months, you will see trends emerge, start making connections and be on your way to becoming knowledgeable about wine.
Gold Medal Wine Club offers only the best of small-production, California wines from family-owned wineries whose passion is to produce award-winning bottles. What a better way to learn about wine than to drink a great bottle? A wine doesn’t win awards, or accolades without possessing superior qualities that most wine connoisseurs covet. Unlike mass produced wines that you might find in nearly every grocery or market, the wines we select are complex, and embody the exact qualities that experts expect from those particular varietals. You are learning with the best possible tools.
Gold Medal Wine Club has five different wine clubs. Our Gold Series is perfect for the new wine drinker or anyone looking for great boutique, hard-to-find wines. This series offers award-winning wines at an affordable price point and includes a rich and informative newsletter with each shipment.
Our Pinot Noir Series and Platinum Series offer award-winning, highly-sought after wines at a slightly higher price point. For any wine drinker, these clubs will offer some of California’s most outstanding wines also accompanied by a detailed information and tasting notes.
The International Series features the world’s best boutique wines. For this wine club, our newsletters include extensive information about the featured country and region for each selection.
And finally, our Diamond Series are upper-echelon wines all with 93+ ratings. This club has limited membership and is typically a great club for the wine collector.
If you or someone you know is becoming increasingly drawn to wine as your beverage of choice, we invite you to consider a Gold Medal Wine Club membership as a great way to enjoy award-winning wines while learning about wine. A wine club makes a great gift. Consider giving the gift of wine and wine knowledge to someone you love this holiday season.

This month’s Platinum Series features Round Pond Estate 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon and Crane Brothers’ 2005 Napa Valley Merlot, both from California’s Napa Valley.
Round Pond, named for a small pond in West Point, New York, was a favorite childhood spot for Robert MacDonnell, the owner of the Napa vineyards that produce Round Pond wines. His children, Miles and Ryan MacDonnell are responsible for bringing Round Pond Estate into the ranks of upper-echelon Napa Valley wine producers.
The MacDonnell family began acquiring Napa acreage in 1980 and sold their fruit to nearby wineries including Robert Mondavi, Beaulieu and Sterling Vineyards. In the 1990′s the family began producing a small amount of wine for themselves and as gifts for friends and family. In 2001, Miles decided to enter the family into the wine making business in earnest. Learning from the customers who had bought their grapes over the years, they honed their skills in choosing specific grapes to make each wine unique. Their first release in 2002 was well received by both the industry press and consumers alike.
The Round Pond Estate winery aims to remain small, producing just 4,500 cases this year. They pride themselves with keeping it ‘all in the family’. Miles manages the winery, his sister Ryan does marketing and sales, their mother Jannine runs the tasting facility and Robert consults on all decisions regarding the winery. Round Pond Winery was recently named One of the Top 20 to Watch: Exciting Cabernet Labels in Wine Spectator magazine.
The Round Pond Estate 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted sustainably from vineyard blocks of the winery’s finest fruit. The soil and climate in Rutherford region are known as the best possible for the production of California Cabernet’s. This wine was awarded 91 points from Wine Enthusiast, named one of the Top Ten Wines of 2008 by the San Francisco Chronicle and received a Double Gold Medal at the American Fine Wine Competition.
The Crane Family of Crane Ranch Vineyard are third generation Napa Valley residents and the first generation of their family to enter into the wine industry. Thirteen years ago they acquired nine acres in the Oak Knoll appellation in West Napa Valley and contracted their spectacular fruit to Stags Leap Winery. Like the MacDonnell family, they began producing wine for themselves, friends and family to rave reviews and much encouragement. Their first production for the general public appeared in 2001 receiving similar accolades.
Michael Crane believes that the success of his wines relies on the specificity with which he handles his vineyards, deliberately producing low yields for better fruit. He personally tends to his vineyards making sure the work is done correctly. “I treat our vines the very best way possible and they reward me by delivering spectacular fruit”, says Crane. He works with winemaker Al Perry, a 25 year veteran of Napa Valley wine making. Additionally, Crane Brothers’ wines are single-vineyard, estate-bottled allowing the Cranes to hit excellent price values that consumers are looking for.
The Crane Brothers plan to stay small in order to maintain attention to detail and control over quality. There were only 140 cases produced of this month’s wine of the month club offering: Crane Brothers 2005 Napa Valley Merlot. The wine received 91 points from Connoisseur’s Guide and 90 points from Wine Enthusiast. It is described as big, rich, complex and well balanced.
Gold Medal Wine Club hopes you enjoy these Platinum Series selections. The Platinum Series is our upper-level, ultra-premium wine club featuring wines rated 90 or higher.The Platinum Series also includes some pre-releases and exclusives made available to only our members.
As always, these wines are available for re-order in our wine store- with significant discounts for all members of each of our five wine clubs.
Please let us know what we thought of these wonderful Napa Valley wine selections.

The Tiera 2008 Dry Creek Valley Estate Grown Sauvignon Blanc, and Tiera 2006 Sonoma County Zinfandel are two excellent wines that have been named ‘best value’ by several wine publications. Gold Medal Wine Club is pleased to offer Tiera wines as this month’s wine of the month club selection.
Tiera Winery, located in the Dry Creek Valley area of Sonoma County, was started in 2001 by husband and wife team Dan Donahoe and Alexis Woods. Alexis is the daughter of Frank Woods, founder of Clos du Bois Winery. Woods saved one 120 acre parcel of land upon selling Clos du Bois which now produces the fruit for Tiera wines. Their intention is to remain small, with a goal of producing just 10,000 cases per year. This year they will probably peak at about 6000. They produce all the wine themselves.
Dan fell in love with wine and food as a freshman in college after having dinner with his grandmother’s closest childhood friend-non other than Julia Child. They were of course, treated like royalty and offered the best dishes with exquisite wines. He had an epiphany at that meal and vowed never to take food or wine for granted again! After a successful career in business, with the help of Alexis, he finally became part of the wine producing business. He and Alexis love raising their girls on the vineyard and turning people on to wines. Their mission is to produce really good wines at an accessible price point. Given that previous vintages have received 90 points and the 2007 Sauvignon Blanc earned the distinction of ‘The Top Ten Values of the Year’ , they seem to have achieved their goal.
The 2008 Sauvigon Blanc comes from Woods Vineyards grapes that are farmed sustainably and organically and was named “A Top Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc by the San Francisco Chronicle. The 2006 Zinfandel has been nominated in the American Wine Awards for Food and Wine Magazine for it’s balance and elegance.
We hope you enjoy this month’s wine club selections. Remember, you can always reorder the Tiera Sauvignon Blanc, Tiera Zinfandel, or many of our previous wine club selections from our wine store.
As always, let us know what you think. Leave a comment here, or go to ‘Judge the Wines’ and let us know what you though of this wine of the month club selection.

The Mission Trail 2006 Syrah, (our Gold Series wine of the month club selection from a few months back) contributed this recipe for pairing with their award-winning wine. This Syrah earned a Gold Medal from the Beverage Tasting Institute’s World Wine Championships and a Gold Medal from the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition, and is an excellent portrayal of the big and robust Syrahs this vineyard is capable of. This wine also garnered a Silver Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition as well as a Silver Medal at the Florida State Fair International Wine Competition.
The Mission Trail 2006 Syrah and other Syrah wines are available for re-order in our wine store.
Ken’s Salinas Valley Cowboy Tri Tip
One well marbled, Tri-Tip
3 tablespoons Garlic Powder
3 tablespoons Fresh Ground Pepper
3 tablespoons Kosher Salt
1/2 Cup Red Wine
1/2 Cup Beef Broth
Smoke Chips/Chunks, oak (preferred) or fruit wood
Apply rub generously over both sides of the Tri-Tip. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the meat to assume room temp. Prepare your fire. The cowboys ofMonterey County would cook this meat slowly over an open fire fueled by oak logs. The smoke kisses the meat during its cooking and imparts a unique flavor. If cooking with charcoal, use indirect heat method and place wood chunks on the coals. For gas grills, use the indirect method and add wood chips to the smoke box or make a couple of tin foil packets of chips. Let the Tri-Tip cook on its side for approximately 40 minutes or until the meat appears to be cooked about half the way through and baste the meat a couple of times during that time and once right before you flip the meat to the other side. Let cook on this side for about 20 minutes or until the meat feels slightly firm or until the meat reaches an eternal temperature of 135?. Allow the meat to rest, covered for 15 minutes. One of Tri-Tip’s greatest features is that there is a piece for everyone; the ends will be more done and the midsection will be rarer. Tri-Tip tip: It is very important to cut the meat cross grain into thin slices (1/4 to 1/2 inch thick).
This is a robust dish packed full of flavor and is needs a big full flavored wine. I found that the 2006 Syrah cozies up nicely next to this typical California Coastal dish. Enjoy! -Ken Rauh
Here at Gold Medal Wine Club, we tested this recipe and would also recommend this wonderful Tri Tip with a Petit Sirah, a Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, or Tempranillo.
Did you know that our website has an extensive library of recipes with suggested wine pairings? Visit our recipe page for the perfect food pairing with our wine club’s award-winning wines.

Yes, yes we know. Everyone is sick of hearing stories that begin with “In these tough economic times…..”. It has been a tough year for nearly everyone we know.

“I work at The DiCarlo Group in Atlanta with Laura Cegala. I’ve worked with
the owner of the agency–Tim DiCarlo–for almost 10 years. We have
represented Food & Wine magazine for about five years. As a surprise gift,
Tim signed me up for the two bottles of wine a month program.
My husband and I love all the wines we have had so far! Just the idea of
knowing we will get a new delivery every month is fun. We enjoy reading
about and sharing the wine with our friends. My husband was so impressed,
he has asked me for your website and plans to give the same gift to business
clients of his.
Just wanted to share with you how much we are enjoying Gold Medal Wine Club.”
