This Week In Wine 101: Online Wine Club Benefits
Is your schedule so busy that you rarely have enough time to visit your local wine shop or wine store? Why not join a (online) wine club? It’s the perfect solution for any wine enthusiast! Whether you’re new to the wine scene and want to learn about and find new wines; or an experienced wine aficionado who’s already established a list of varietals you love but are looking to explore and experiment with more exotic styles. It’s convenient, simple, and requires very little effort on your part but to enjoy the perks of having wine brought right to your doorstep while you discover delicious local, national and international wines! This week we explore the benefits of joining an online wine club.
The highly regraded 2014 Barnard Griffin Chardonnay offers captivating aromas. This Grape Certified Gold white wine is terrific as an aperitif this and pairs well with a variety of foods. Wine Spectator described the Barnard Griffin Chardonnay as, “A strong floral streak runs through pear and grapefruit flavors on a light, lime-tinged chassis. Shows refinement.” While, Wine Enthusiast left the following review, “Another jazzy, Best Buy winner from Barnard Griffin, this 2014 Chardonnay should be sipped to the tune of Harry Nilsson’s “Put The Lime In The Coconut,” which neatly captures the flavors.”
Food & Wine Friday
This Week In Food & Wine: Global Wines & Healthy Chicken Fajitas And Wines
Sometimes you just want to, as Emeril Lagasse would say, “Kick it up a notch!” With the Summer in full swing and the holiday season coming in hot, for a brief moment we’d like to give you a quick, healthy recipe that’ll take you no time to make. Whether you’re back from a long day at the beach, lake or river or you’re planning for a day of shopping in crowded malls, this is the quick and delicious meal you needed. How might we do this? We’d like to pair a favorite Mexican dish, Chicken Fajitas with wine from south of the equator. So, if you love Mexican food, wine and the holidays, then you need to add this pairing to your hot list of “Must Try Recipes & Pairings”. Ok, so we just made this list up but we think it’s a pretty good list idea. Besides we’re confident it will have you and your guests singing “Feliz Navidad!”
