This Friday I will be personally conducting our tasting so I've put together a lineup that reflects my passion for wine and my appreciation for your continued support. In addition, we just heard that Serena Isabelli, our visiting vocalist/guitar player will be joined by the equally talented violinist Van Isaacson to play two sets of their beautiful music as we taste these wines:
I'll start with a "German Gilabert" Cava from Penedes, a wine region southwest of Barcelona, Spain. This crisp sparkling is packed with bubbles and citrus and is the drink of choice in the many tapas bars of that great city. Next I'll be pouring "Killka", a refreshing white with aromas of orange peel and jasmine made with Torrontes, Argentina's signature white grape. The first red will be a "3Cs Zinfandel" from Contra Costa County, California. This tasty wine is big in black fruit and pairs well with Indian, Mexican and spicy Asian food.
Our fourth wine is a "Pipoli" Aglianico del Vulture, a full bodied Italian red with aromas of cherry and vanilla that literally jump off the glass. This robust red pairs well with meat dishes and salty cheeses- delicious!!
See you all on Friday!
