JUNE 2022: PIEDMONT AND PAÍS
Sometimes the magic happens: we find rarities and gems, made in tiny minute quantities, that are available at scratch-your-head good prices. And sometimes those rarities and gems are also edgy, fun, and dare we say “natural” wines that will impress everyone (including natural wine skeptics like us).
This month’s selections are a blast: two whites, two reds, all amazing. The País wines in particular are super rare and special — you’ll hear all about it in the video. The two from Piedmont are distinctive and delicious wines for summer drinking.
(In the video, I mention an essay by Terry Theise on Wine Dogma. It’s one of my favorite wine essays of all time. Read and download it here.)
