So this past week we were celebrating my other sister Barb's birthday and I was looking for something super special to serve at our family celebration.My sister is extraordinary and so she deserved a wine that is extraordinary made by an extraordinary winemaker, Laurie Hook.
Extraordinary women of wine. Laurie has headed up the wine making team at Beringer for the past 13 years, one of the first wineries in Napa Valley, dating back to 1875. My wine pick is the Beringer Knights Vally Cabernet Sauvignon 2011.
Please listen to our radio show all about Beringer WL11-30-2015
From Sonoma’s Knights Valley full bodied, seductive nose of ripe blue and black berry, full intense fruit flavor, good acidity and lasting finish… hmm hmm good!
Yes, the Chinese New year is just around the corner, it is celebrated on February 8th…and so we thought it would be fun and really interesting to do a show on the celebration of the holiday and also explore a little about the Chinese culture, cuisine and wine .
Pillitteri Estates Winery Icewine the perfect pairing for celebrating!
It just so happens that one of the most coveted and prestigious beverages enjoyed on this holiday and other days throughout the year in China happens to be Canadian!
Often referred to as liquid gold, it is our iconic Icewine! And Pillitteri Estates Winery is one of the most prestigious and largest producers and exporters of Icewine to China, so naturally we spoke with them all about it.
