Winemaking in Anatolia was started 7000 years ago and Turkey is one of the world’s oldest wine countries. However, people don’t know much about Turkish wines. There are magnificent grape varieties and blends you’d be glad to know. So I want to give you an insight about Turkish winemaking through a special wine route in the Aegean part that I periodically visit.
Alsace, a French wine region famous for its delicious whites, is so inviting and fascinating that you can suddenly find yourself planning a trip there only to drink wine, as I did last year.
We love getting to know the people who make the wine we taste! As we all stay safe in our homes and exercise social distancing, we spent some time learning a bit about the winemaker at Charles R Winery, Lisa Lee.
Our series of “virtual interviews” with local winemakers continues during our Shelter in Place. Tonight we had a chance to talk about wine and winemaking with Jim Cargill, winemaker at House Family Vineyards.
Our “socially distant” interview series with local winemakers seems to have struck a chord with many of you! This week we get to know more about Dante Robere Vineyards with a conversation with Bob Bossi.
With the days of “shelter in place” dragging on, our thoughts go to a better time, when fun afternoons were spent in tasting rooms exploring new and favorite wines. Recently, though, we found out about the next best thing: a To-Go Tasting Box from Mitchella Winery!
As “sheltering in place” drags on, we like to think of happier times. Those memories include numerous visits to family-owned Omega Road Winery. So it only made sense to spend some time (electronically) with one of the owner/winemakers Alexandra Henkelman!
With the declaration of “Shelter at Home” keeping us all away from wineries and tasting rooms, we thought that the next best thing would be an interview with a local winemaker. So pour yourself a glass of Enoteca Five wine and join us as we get to know Michael Chalkley, owner and winemaker at Enoteca Five.
What a day! It was time to sip and learn, or learn and sip actually, as we toured and tasted at the amazing Schramsberg Vineyards.
As the vineyards start to show bits of green along their vines, our yearning for new winetasting experiences grows. What new wines are being poured in the tasting room? What have we missed? That was our motivation for our recent visit to the Omega Road Winery.
