If you've got Valentine's Day locked and loaded with plan after plan for you and your sweetheart, then we can't help much. Except, perhaps, with the finishing touch after a day of romance. That we can help you with.
Many of our wine guests have been aware over the past couple of years of the amazing quality and sheer drinkability of the wines from Casas del Bosque.
This French appellation is known for its white wines--specifically Sauvignon Blanc. But that's no surprise because Sauvignon Blanc is the only grape grown in Pouilly-Fumé. Brightly flavored, though more subtle than New Zealand's recently popular version, Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly-Fumé shows well with lemon chicken, grilled fish and creamy cheeses. Try this delicious bottle from Jonathan Didier Pabiot!
It's Friday and while a lot of you have weekend plans, most of you--if you're like me at least--probably don't. But we still have something in common. I'd venture to guess that the one activity those who have plans and those who don't have in common is this: scrounging around your kitchen for cheese, preferably with a glass of wine in hand.
But scrounge not, fam. Cheese is not for scrounging. Cheese is for creative planning and nibbling. Delicately topping with fig and fruit, marmalade and herbs. Matching with wine and sharing with friends.
