Beer and Wine Weekly Update, April 13, 2015
By Joey Bowling, Beer and Wine Manager
I wanted to spend a little page space this week on French and Italian wine classifications. Have you ever picked up a bottle and wondered what all that abbreviated gobbledegook meant? D.O.C., I.G.T., A.O.C., V.D.P....(head explodes)! I hate when that happens.
Let’s see if I can help a little bit.
May Wines Under $10
This month, we are featuring two wines from Smoking Loon.
The Smoking Loon Chardonnay is wonderfully buttery and has notes of apple. It would pair well with chicken kebabs or a soft cheese.
The Smoking Loon Merlot is medium bodied with notes of leather, tobacco, and blackberries. It would also pair well with kebabs, but ones made instead with early summer vegetables or red meat.
