Did you miss our Wine 101 class at Bekah Kate’s last week? Our class participants and staff tried ten wine varietals and learned the basics of wine vocabulary and tasting. If you couldn’t be there, you can still enjoy the wines we tried by stopping by the store and picking up a bottle from those suggested by Greg Huber of General Beverage Co., or one of our many other wine offerings!
Wine 101 Participants tasted the following:
Barone Fini Pinot Grigio – This light, crisp Pinot Grigio pairs well with delicate seafood, salads, chicken and pasta.
The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc – The New Zealand wine has a bit of a tart grapefruit flavor and was the favorite of some of our staff.
Wollersheim Winery’s Dry Riesling – An award-winning, local wine, Wollersheim’s Dry Riesling is a food friendly riesling that pairs well with chicken, sweet and sour foods and stir-fry.
Pacific Rim Chenin Blanc – This Washington wine is not available in any other local stores. It has peach and nectarine flavors and is ideal with shellfish, grilled fish, soft cheeses and middle eastern food.
William Hill Central Coast Chardonnay – This Chardonnay will pair nicely with salmon or a rich, creamy poultry dish.
