      WINE Explorers January 6, 2015 Thinking outside the box… That was our goal before starting our tour of the American vineyards. Many have taken us for oddballs when we decided not to go to California, the State super star of the country which accounts for 90% of the country’s wine production(1). Except that here… each of the 51 states of the United States produces wine, includi ...

Most of the wines mentioned said the grapes came from places like Lodi, California, or New Mexico. We were told three wines came from Texas grapes from the Hill Country and High Plains…

  • Three wines from New Mexico, Mexico, and Greece

    … One really should be curious when it comes to trying wines. We bought the 2009 Gruet Winery, Pinot Noir, New Mexico several years ago after trying an even older, well-preserved example. It may seem surprising at first to find Pinot Noir in New Mexico but do remember that Gruet is famous for their sparkling wines, of which Pinot Noir plays a part…

    … a questionable bottle of wine, and smooth the tannins in a strident one. We first tried it on a bottle of wine from New Mexico that we picked up on sale. It was a blend, and had a rather ashy finish — we ran it through the TRIbella and poof! the ash taste was gone. We also tried it on a very good Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that needed more cellar time…

  • An American Wine That Sparkles

    …, and a clean finish. Shockingly this wine hails from the (great wine state??) of New Mexico!?! Well, they must be doing something right there because Gruet Winery’s Domaine St. Vincent is made of 80% Chardonnay a grape I have a tumultuous relationship with at best, and 20% Pinot Noir mixed together into something I can’t seem to stop buying or drinking! (I’m on my 3rd bottle already). I highly recommend this wine! Pair with a creamy cheese, pasta with a creamy sauce, or a buttery salmon steak. Cheers! …

Their apple brandy is a dry, Calvados-style brandy made from tart (but edible), mountain west apples. I love sipping it alongside nuts and cheese and have stirred it into plenty of spiritus cocktails. photo…
