I had the great pleasure of visiting France last week for a week of mostly family reunion. Spring was in full bloom and temperatures were in the 70’s. A day trip to the region of Vouvray gave us a chance to enjoy that great weather and taste some fine white wine from the region.
The weather last night was threatening enough that I wasn’t sure I would make it to this event. Joselle and I, along with 18 other intrepid food and wine lovers, made our way to a wonderful wine dinner on Wednesday, January 26. At a cost of $65 per person and given the friendly nature of the group, the expertise of our wine rep Lori and the delicious creations of chef Jeff, this meal was clearly a bargain!
But it wasn’t until I actually tasted them – one then the other – that I appreciated what a superior scotch Famous Grouse is. If you want to kick it up a notch without breaking the bank, try the Black Grouse.
Getting over the fear of Pinot’s that cost less than $50 is easy with 3 Girls. Sometimes you just want to have something different than a cab or merlot or zin, and this one fits the bill rather nicely.
