Discovering wines of Spain, including tempranillo from Cigales and Osborne Pedro Ximenez sweet sherry
Introducing you to three great organic wines, and discussin organic, biodynamic, and sustainable winemaking practices.
My mission this year is to help you discover new and fun wines to try, as well as continuing to make wine less intimidating, more approachable, and ultimately, more enjoyable! You’ve given me some great feedback on the first post of 2010, where I introduced some of you to Albarino and Carmenere. Today, we take a trip to Clarksburg, CA and talk about a white wine from Lange Twins, their 2008 Viognier.
I started off the year visiting Kara Kostanich at CBS12 WPEC to talk about wine grapes you may not have experienced before. As part of my mission to make wine approachable, I want to help you feel comfortable ordering an Albarino, or some of the other grapes I discuss on the show. Cheers!
Today’s video review talks about two wines I enjoy very much, Albarino and Carmenere. I discussed both of these wines on Daybreak, the local CBS weekend morning show. They went over very well, and everyone in the studio agreed they NEVER would have tried the wines without my help.
Think you’ve got a great opportunity to taste a number of interesting wines at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival? Before you make the trip, read this blog post.
Starting my quest for 100, and membership to The Wine Century Club, I review a Verdejo from Rueda Spain made by Palma Real.
This evening’s wine was Sobon Estates 2006 Viognier. It’s a nice summer wine that rolls in at $15, and while I won’t say it’s the best viognier, it was worth giving it a try. The video review that follows gives a good summary, but I’ll fill that out as well.
