I come back to this wine with great pleasure. For the first time, I tasted it in Douro region. This is my third bottle. Ramos Pinto is famous for his port wines, but dry ones shouldn't be missed too. Grapes for Duas Quintas, as name suggests, come from two different estates. It is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and other local grape varieties. Ripe, dark fruits (blackberry, blueberry, dark cherry), flowers, spices, some wood, earthy notes. Quite full body, but at the same time elegant, balanced with soft texture. Recommended example of red Douro 👍
This is an amazing shot of a vineyard in Santa Maria, located in California's Central Coast. "Over the course of the next 300 miles, the weather transitions from moody to mild, which makes for excellent diversity in both wine and surf. Grapes here are among the oldest in the state, planted by Franciscan monks as they made their way north on El Camino Real (“the royal road”, now Highway 101) in the late 1700s." - DiscoverCaliforniaWine.com
With such great history and award winning Chardonnays, Pinot Noirs and Rhônes, the Central Coast of California should be on every wine enthusiasts list!

Grüner Veltliner, dry Vidal Blanc, Cabernet Franc Blanc de Noir...in North Carolina? Yep. That’s exactly what I had in my white wine flight at @plebavl in Asheville this weekend, along with finally getting to taste a Petit Manseng. I was looking forward to trying out Plēb overall...I loved the idea of a winery with an artsy, laid-back, dog-friendly, brewery vibe, but I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect from the wine itself. I was pleasantly surprised with it all, and the space does not disappoint! Next time you’re in Asheville and you want a little break in the killer beer scene, bring your growler 🍺 and pupper 🐶 to @plebavl and check it out!

So che quando si parla di abbinamenti territoriali il richiamo é al binomio cibo-vino, ma un bicchiere di #pigato con veduta sul #levante ligure per me è un abbinamento territoriale perfetto ❤️ Cheers 🥂
Solaris is an early ripening grape. Probably most of the polish growers are picking those yellow-greenish berries now 🤔
Weather is fine for harcesting and on this warm sunny day I really enjoyed the 2018 vintage by @agroturystykalipowiec
It has straw colour, clear. Aromas of pear, golden apple, apricot, eldelflower-intense.
Juicy, fresh, light... precisely the thing you need on tuesday afternoon.
Cancel the rest of the work week, my brain is still on vacation. 🤷🏻♀️ .
For all my Sauvignon Blanc lovers, ever heard of Semillon? If you haven’t it’s a MUST try! Slightly heavier than Sauv with less acidity, it’s definitely a new favorite for me!

@vinipiemontesi si regala un aperitivo con vista alla Tenuta La Scolca di Gavi, con il Cortese in tutte le sue migliori espressioni!
Viña Guitian Blanco Fermentado En Barrica 2016, fantástico godello de bodegas A Tapada, me gusto mucho su sabor a frutos de hueso y cítricos, todo ello aromatizado con la madera de roble. Con el marisco estupendo 😊 👍🏻👍🏻
🌊 Sea view room - always the right choice! ☀️ We were welcomed with a lovely bottle of prosecco at @villagabrisa. Perfect way to celebrate our arrival (and this view) in Positano! 🥂🇮🇹

The story of Mascarello family goes back to the 1800s. Since then, they have been involved in viticulture, first by cultivating the vineyards of the noble Marchesa Giulia Colbert Faletti di Barolo. But in the late 1800s, they established their own winery and started producing their wines.
Acquiring Monprivato, a vineyard located in Castiglione Falletto, was crucial to their success. In this exceptional site, the vines enjoy a southwest exposure, and are planted at around 288 metres above sea-level in white and grey marl soils rich in limestone.
Today the winery is run by Mauro Mascarello, the fourth generation of the family. And like his grandfather, Mauro is a traditionalist who works with long fermentations and aging in large old casks.
But Mauro has also made an important contribution to the family’s estate.
In 1979, he started to vinify the grapes grown on each single vineyard separately in order to offer the unique expression of every single vineyard. He started from Monprivato, the 6.25 ha vineyard his visionary grandfather Maurizio acquired in 1904. #drinkstories

First time at @louismmartiniwinery this past weekend in Napa! They can accommodate anything from large groups to more intimate experiences. The wine train stops here too! I experienced their food and wine pairing tasting and it was so good! Their chef is SO talented and makes some killer bites that pair so well with their wines!
If you’ve ever driven through a landscape covered with vineyards, you probably noticed that not all vines look the same. What goes into all those different vine training styles? Visit today's IG story and the link in our bio for a complete run-down on the many varied ways to train your vine!
