Trick or treat your way through our tasting this Halloween as we open bottles of four frightfully delicious wines for you to sample. And to make the event even more fun, wear your most outrageously creative costume and you might win a free bottle of wine - voting is at 7:30. Van and Tim will be providing musical entertainment.
I’ll open the tasting with a “Fuga Fuga Trebbianno", a new addition to our Italian whites inventory and a perfect wine for holiday food pairing. This rustic white from the Abruzzo region is dry, aromatic and richly flavored with notes of lemon and apple. Great with turkey, pan fried fish and veggies.
Our next white is“L’Arjolle”, a Sauvignon Blanc-Viognier blend from Southern France. This wine is bright and clean, showing aromas of apricots, apple, citrus and a floral note. An outstanding French white for all occasions.
Our first red is Lucchine, a light Italian classic from the famous Valpolicella appellation. This is a quintessentially Italian “go to” red, perfect with light meals, pasta, pizza and poultry. The Lucchine has notes of cherries and red currants, lively acidity and balanced structure.
The second red is the “star of the night” and one of the most remarkable wines in the store. From the Vacqueyras appellation in France’s Rhône regions comes the “Fruit Sauvage”, a 60% Grenache, 40% Syrah blend with a powerful, liquorice scent, abundant fruit and a weighty palate that carries the flavor for what seems like an eternity - a gem!
See you all on Friday!
