Steve Billingsley and Warren Schutz combed through several distributors portfolios to select the unique wines for our Christmas party, many of which are varietals we have not had at previous tastings. All the wines hale from Europe.
Our evening will start off with a sparkling brut rose from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France. We will then venture to the Jurancom region of southwest France to taste a Gros Manseng. Then off to the Niederoesterreich region of Austria to taste a Gruner Veltliner. That will be followed by a Susumaniello from the Puglia region of Italy. Next up is a Ramitello from the Molise region of Italy. Our last wine will be a Bordeaux blend from the Lussac-St-Emilion region of France. We will end our evening with a surprise offering that is sure to please.
