Thankfully, we all survived the Holidays! Lot’s of eating, drinking and fun. We had an opportunity to drink a lot more sparkling wine than usual.
I would like to mention one in particular that I think is very impressive. That would be the Blanc de Noir, by Gruet.
This is a bright, refreshing sparkler that has all the nuances of a good French champagne, but it is made right here in the USA in, of all places, New Mexico! For about $15 you can’t go wrong.
The past year has been a good one for FEWC. With our usual fun weekly get- togethers, interspersed with BYOB dinners, New York Times wine school dinners and, of course, a trip to France, we have been quite busy!
Now we look forward to a terrific 2018, with many good bottles of wine to discover. I ran across an article in the Chicago Tribune by their wine critic, Michael Austin. He made some suggestions that sounded like good advice. Here is the link to the article:
I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think.
So pour yourself a glass of wine, raise it high and let’s have a toast,
“To 2018, may we all have a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!”
