Picpoul de Pinet should be in everyone’s fridge. Learn more about the Picpoul grape and this amazing region.

Very few wine consumers have heard of Pecorino (the wine, anyway, for the cheese is very popular), which is often grown in the area of Abruzzo in east-central Italy. Here’s a great article on VinePair about the Pecorino wine.

Angela and I are on a Greek wine kick right now, and we’ve found Assyrtiko to be fantastic at pairing with a wide variety of dishes. How they grow these vines in the dry climate of Greece is fascinating.

We have two wines in the kit from the La Rioja Alta folks. The first is the Lagar de Cevera Albariño, which is easily one of the top two or three Albariños available, and one of our favorite white wines in general. The area where this is from, Rias Baixas, is fascinating especially in terms of their farming methods. The second is the legendary La Rioja Alta “Vina Alberdi” Rioja Reserva, a wine that Chuck and I have consistently enjoyed for over 20 years. Simply one of the best.

Lastly, there is nothing better than a great Barolo. This one is showing well now, but will age gracefully for the next ten to fifteen years. Learn more about Barolo and about the producer, Grimaldi.

Thanks everyone! Enjoy your Somm Kit!
