    Umbria wine country – our adventures on the Umbria wine trail

    In Umbria wine country When we redesigned the WineCountryGetaways Website, this article I’d posted about our wine country trip to Umbria was misplaced and never made it to the blog. I am posting this and if you are considering a wine adventure in Italy, think about Umbria. It is next door to Tuscany, but much less crowded with tourists and it is just as beautiful.

      Wine of the Week 17 – a delicious & great value Cabernet

      Quentin Sadler's Wine Page - - 8 readers - My Wine of the Week is a favourite value wine of mine. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon from Greece, which is not exactly a place that is famous for Cabernet, but this wine really is delicious and worth trying. I love Greek wines and think they are sadly neglected and underrated by the UK consumer.

      Pazdar Aspen's Bite Grapefruit Wine (NY)

      East Coast Wineries - - 7 readers - According to David Pazdar, Aspen, the family dog, may look like a cute little dog but she has quite a bite. And so the newest wine was named - Aspen's Bite. What is Aspen's Bite - its a white wine made with grapefruit in it. It's got a wickedly fantastic nose of fresh squeezed grapefruit. And the taste is incredibly palate pleasing ...

      Underrated Spain: Meseta Central Wine Region

      Wine Folly - - 7 readers - In the land of Don Quixote, wine plays a very important role both economically and culturally. The Meseta Central, a.k.a. Central Plateau, produces nearly half of the wine in all of Spain. It’s also home to over a dozen top wine Spanish bodegas (wineries). Super Value! If you like wines with intensity and European personality, Spain has you covered.

      A Different Chardonnay

      …The experience of Sauvignon Blanc is so entrenched in our expectations from NZ whites that it’s hard to imagine other experiences. Which is not a bad thing when looking for Chardonnay with a brisk, zingy, refreshing bite. And moderate alcohol. Sileni is not non-oaked, but it feels that way, and is perfect for aperitif, and for seafood appetizers. SILENI 12 Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand 358994 $15.95…

      Classy White

      …NYARAI is the virtual winery of Steve Byfield, who’s very skilled at creating small batch wines at rented spaces – in this case at Coffin Ridge (near Owen Sound). All his wines have a clarity of expression that I love and this Viognier is wonderfully understated, and classy. A true and true local. Aperitif or seafood partner.

      1/2 Price ‘Sancerre’!

      …The general take on South African wines is they combine New World ripe flavours with the dry character of French wines. A best of both worlds. This new arrival fits the description perfectly, but may be leaning more towards the leaner spirit of French Sauvignon such as Sancerre. But AT HALF THE PRICE! Splurge on the seafood instead. Certainly a candidate for wine buy of the year. And, it might be your first wine from the 2014 vintage! JUNO 14 Sauvignon Blanc, Paarl, South Africa 370312 $11.85…
