Hey y’all! This New York City girl is getting used to being below the Mason-Dixon line! It’s day three in the shop and we’re having a blast learning the ins and outs. Here we are opening up the shop. It’s a grey day outside, but things in the shop are sunny and bright.
We’ve been meeting with distributors and tastings new wines. The customers and I are learning to understand each other’s accents and I have to say, the people of Lexington are so nice! Folks have been dropping by to say hello and join us for tastings.
Did you notice our name is TASTINGS!?!?!
Here’s what’s popping on the Tasting Table Today:
A 2008 Biscardo
This intense ruby colored wine is persistent and full-bodied and goes well with red meat and game. It’s a delicious wine all by its self and the consensus at the tasting table has been that this wine could be a favorite.
2010 La Quercia
According to the bottle this wine means “a beautiful oak tree that grows nobly on the small and intimate estate in Ambruzzo”. It sounds like a dream location to me! This is a medium bodied wine that is fruity and perfect for everyday. They recommend pasta, white meat and fresh cheese. If you’re in the area stop by and have a taste – this bottle opens at 5 PM today!
See you soon!
