I made a new friend not too long ago, and that connection lead to a package in the mail over the holidays and a bit of a treat for me with some samples to try. One of the samples from a winery I am quite familiar with and one from a new (to me) producer. Check out my video as I pop the corks on these wines in my sexy cellar (it's a working cellar so no frills attached, but very functional), and then the info below to see the actual links to the producers/wines.
Hopefully that was not too painful...and yes, the cat decided to make himself present during the shoot, so I apologize for the interruption. Meow

Thank you to the producers for sending the samples.
