Tuesday, April 14th Pinot VIEW MENU
It all started with Burgundy. As chance would have it, the climate and conditions were perfect producing Pinot Noir, which would become the drink of kings. Largely thanks to its great, complex taste (and also some genetic mutation), the grape has spread all over the world in other varieties. Although France still produces great Pinot noirs, other parts of the world, Old and New, produce terrific tasting Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc.
Tuesday, April 21st Australia/New Zealand VIEW MENU
Only behind Italy, Spain, and France, Australia is the world’s fourth largest wine producer – not bad for a country founded by a bunch of cast off convicts! In fact, the original settlers of Australia and New Zealand brought their grapevines with them on the journey, so even if the land was unfamiliar, at least they’d have some good wine to drink there. While the region is mostly known for Shiraz, Australia and New Zealand also produce plenty of other varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Merlot, just to name a few.
Tuesday, April 28th Chablis VIEW MENU
Just as Chablis stays isolated from the rest of her Burgundy neighbors to the south, the Chardonnay that region produces is widely thought of as superior to the rest of the winemaking world. The Kimmeridgian soil, a mix of gray limestone and focalized oyster shells, gives the wine its distinct ocean-like minerality.
Tuesday, May 5th Mediterranean VIEW MENU
Grape growing has existed in the Mediterranean since farming became a thing in the Neolithic age more than 6,500 years ago. In some ways, not much has changed in the Mediterranean. The region is still dominated by small wine producers who grow grapes without any goal of taking over markets or economies; they simply grow grapes and make wine because that’s what their ancestors did thousands of years before them.
Tuesday, May 12th Portugal VIEW MENU
When one thinks of Portuguese winemaking, Port often comes to mind (and for good reason too). While the sweet fortified wine might be the country’s poster child, Portugal produces of hundreds of red varieties, and also their signature white, Vinho Verde. Many of Portugal’s wines were exported across the Roman Empire to be enjoyed by everyone, and the demand is still present today.
