Cameron Hughes Wine Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed! The winners selected via are commenters #43- Skinny Fat Kid, #107- Aimee @ Shugary Sweets, and #310- Kimiko. Congrats! And thanks to all for entering.

Cameron Hughes is a wine  that I first spotted at Costco a few years back.  They’re also featured at Sam’s Club, World Market, Kroger, Harris Teeter, Vons, Safeway or online.  Have you seen them?  Have you tried them?

Cameron Hughes is able to provide luxury wines for a discount since they don’t own a vineyard or a winery.  Instead, they partner with high-end, international wineries to create wine that they love at affordable prices.  So technically, they could very well be offering $75 bottles of wine for $20.  Kind of a bargain.  They create 100 different wines a year and sell them as “lot” sizes, so when each lot is sold out, there will never be another like it.

If you read my blog often, and if especially if you follow me on Twitter, or if you’re anyone that I hang out with… you know that I love my wine. I’m not a super duper big fan of drinky drinks like margaritas or pina coladas, but I do love a glass or three of *good* wine. I had the opportunity to try some samples of Cameron Hughes last summer on vacation, and I currently have a few of their just-released wines that I’m in the midst of trying. I have to say, that I like them all.

I’m never sure what sort of wine to put on my table at Thanksgiving.
Wondering what to pair with turkey?
CH suggests a WHITE: Lot 259 2010 Columbia Valley Riesling/Chenin Blanc

But they also tell me that a RED works with turkey too! Lot 303 2009 Stag’s Leap Cabernet.
I can verify that this is good stuff, even without turkey 😉

    A fullbodied red wine is what usually fills my glass. Though I do find Reisling to be a good match with turkey — dry with a touch of fruitiness. Enjoy!

    I’m generally an equal opportunity boozer, when it comes to varietals. It’s like music – there are no bad genres, only bad songs in those genres, and genres I tend to like the songs in over others. I tend to prefer reds, Pinots and Cabernets. And I tend to stay away from the sweet whites. Though if I had to choose a fav, nothing beats a big, spicy Zin. 🙂
