Good day from sunny Southern California (The OC, to be specific)!
I’m out here visiting my parents for the weekend, but took some time yesterday afternoon to sit down with Brian and Jay from Grape Radio and Michael Geoghegan from Reel Reviews. It was great to finally meet them in person and continue our discussions on podcasting, movies and, of course, wine. One of my questions was where they buy their wines here and they suggested I check out The Wine Club and Wine Exchange. Both stores have great selections of domestic (particularly California) and imported wines with very knowledgeable staff. They are a wine lover’s dream and are hightly recommended; I just wish I brought a larger bag 😉 I was shocked to see wines I pay $30 in Minneapolis for $19, but that’s another story…
So I used this opportunity to pickup the three wines for my next show on Sicilian Red Wines as part of Wine Blogging Wednesday #8.
– Firriato, “Chiaramonte”, Nero d’Avola 2002 ($12)
– Morgante, Nero d’Avola 2003 ($11)
– Colosi, “Dry Red Wine” 2002 ($7)
I will be recording the show Tuesday night and will once again feature a virtual tasting.
