Wednesday's Wine Picks


 For several years I worked at and or have attended the Aspen Food and Wine event. My interest in drinking wine dates back to my late teens where in Canada the legal age is 19. Winemakers are a creative and enthusiastic bunch, so my interest in discovering new varietals has been influenced by visits to vineyards, wine-maker meals and the general excitement about trying something new, and just loving it. As a visual learner, the keeping of a wine journal has helped me recall my favorites by the art on the labels. Sometimes I purchase a wine because I like the art, and even that has worked out pretty well for me. By now you're probably thinking I haven't met a  wine I didn't like. Just to clarify, my most current preference in whites is pinot gris from Oregon, and gruner veltliner from Austria - the cute label with the upside-down deer in the top photo shows one we ordered recently at a wonderful restaurant in Naples called Seasons 52.     Cheers dears!
