This week, Thomas Hadis, wine-pro-Xtraordianry, came over and we popped a few corks on new and old friends. We discuss the brand new DOC in Prosecco, now officially available as a Rose and including a good dollop of Pinot Noir.
We also had a run through of a few of our favorite wines from the Loire Valley - all made from Cabernet Franc - something we feel everyone should get to know a bit more often. Especially since these are gorgeous wines with great fruit, great balance and very food friendly. Plus, most of the wines we encounter are very eco-consciously farmed and produced.
Then we did our version of stump the wine geek with a blind taste of a couple of wines. Spoiler alert - we were both waaaay off the mark. But it was fun and of course we learned something just by doing. Enjoy the show...
