Covid Sucks! I think that is something on which we can all agree. It took a collective crap on the Holiday season, changing everyone’s plans to some degree or another but that doesn’t mean that you have to let it ruin everything. Assuming you are stuck at home with just one other wine drinker, we’ve offered up some wine and food pairings for a whole meal that will work for just a single bottle of wine.
Rome…if it’s not on your bucket list, it should be. Of course, we were hitting it at the end of our trip which meant we had been travelling for the better part of three weeks out of just a couple of carry-ons, and walking 15 to 20 thousand steps per day on uneven cobblestone streets. Couple that with drinking aperitifs before dinner, Italian wine with almost every meal and of course enjoying the hell out of most meals, so we were getting pretty tired.
We’ve had our place near Bass Lake for about 14 years and we thought we had tasted at most of the wineries in the mountains. Several weeks ago, we ran across a group in our favorite little Mexican Restaurant in North Fork that had a wine we hadn’t tasted, from a local winery that we had forgotten about called Karine.
