For whatever reason that wineries and wine companies keep finding me, I am forever grateful. Maybe being an empty nester they feel that I am a good candidate: semi-retired, lots of free time, with a need to unwind and relax. When Seeker Wines contacted me, I was intrigued by their variety of wines and packaging. The 9 offerings by The Seeker Wines are:
- Cabernet Sauvignon (Chile)
- Malbec (Argentina)
- Pinot Grigio (Italy)
- Chardonnay (USA)
- Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand)
- Riesling (Germany
- Pinot Noir and Rosé (France)
- Red Blend (world variety mix)
The Bachelor Party Takes on The Seeker Wines
My soon to be son-in-law was throwing a bachelor party at my house and I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to try out these wines. Several of the guys are crazy for wine and I knew they would be the experts. The first thing the men did after arriving was light up the grill to barbecue and make a salad and veggies to go with it. They snacked on artichoke and spinach dips, which ended up accompanying their meals.
The Seeker Wine’s Pinot Noir: A Delicious and Smooth Red
Pinot Nior was the first The Seeker Wine that the guys tried. This wine is made by a 10th generation family winery in New Zealand. The guys loved it paired with the barbecue meats and agreed that it went nicely with the artichoke dip as well. Thoughts about the Pinot: it had a sweet/fruity/spicy taste, good flavor, a long smooth finish, and that it would be a good wine for beginners.
The Seeker’s Crisp White Wine Option
Another night, the guys snacked on an assorted cheese plate complete with crackers, Italian meats, marinated veggies, and grapes. They chose the white Sauvignon Blanc to drink with it and felt that it was very smooth and flavorful, had tons of lime and grapefruit, and that it was a good wine to choose when feeling indecisive on what to drink.
The guys had saved me a glass of each wine to try when I returned. I found the Pinot Noir to be incredibly light and tasty. It paired very well with my Parmesan cheese and rye crisps, plus it had no after taste. I liked the Sauvignon Blanc best as it was super crisp. I found it refreshing on a hot and muggy Florida day.
How is it Shipped?
My Seeker Wines came in a sturdy and efficient plastic wrapper, tucked in a typical cardboard mailer. Upon delivery, an adult must sign for the wines due to the US’ liquor laws. Best of all, a corkscrew is unnecessary; Seeker wine bottles use screw caps, an environmentally friendly method, and I am loving the convenience. The packaging is smart and attractive, with the labels featuring ancient flying machines, symbolizing the thrill of discovery. I found them a bit nostalgic and steampunk, which I loved.
Overall Conclusion of The Seeker Wines
After trying both of my wines, I believe that The Seeker Wines will do well in the market place. Looking online, I found that The Seeker Wines are currently sold at the Publix grocery store in Lakeland, not far from my Florida residence. I definitely recommend trying them!
