Not another ordinary white wine – Sobon Estate Viognier 2008

Viognier is a very versatile wine, great to sip on, or pair with a wide range of foods. When you get a Viognier that not only tastes good, but is reasonably priced, that makes it pair well with ANYTHING. I’d like to introduce you to that Viognier, it comes from Sobon Estate, and I really enjoyed tasting and reviewing this wine.

Undurraga T.H. Sauvignon Blanc 2008

There is no doubt that when the weather heats up, we reach for white wine more frequently than red. As luck would have it, the PR folks of Wine Of Chile sent me some samples of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc wines to try and talk about. This week we got to try the 2008 Undurraga T.H. Sauvignon Blanc from San Antonio, Chile.

WBW 56 – Kosher Wine review

It’s time for another Wine Blogging Wednesday installment. This month’s topic comes from The Cork Dork, and he’s picked Kosher Wines, to coincide with month’s celebration of the Jewish holiday of Passover. For those of you who aren’t Jewish, please don’t turn away. Aside from the possible relation of Jesus’ Last Supper as a Passover Seder (dinner), these wines are not just Kosher, they’re pretty darned good.

Chillin with Chile – Caliterra Reserva Sauvignon Blanc

There is no doubt that I feel wines from Chile offer tremendous value. While many of you probably cut your “Red Wine Teeth” on Merlot or Zinfandel as first red wines, I was purchasing Chilean Carmenere two or three times a week when I first started drinking red wine. I always felt that for the money, you got a great wine with complex flavors while being very approachable. That’s why I am very excited that I’ve got a shipment of 12 different wines from Chile to drink and discuss with you. The first wine I had was Caliterra’s Reserva Sauvignon Blanc 2008, and I’m excited to talk about it!
