There were 400 patrons that took part in this years stroll and Renee Rowe is hoping to raise close to $5,000 - as she did in 2010 for the charity. Final numbers are still a few weeks away! were on hand to offer entertainment, while sampling wine and food. The wine stroll provided 12 Tables offering between 4-6 wines, both red and white-we had plenty of options!
Below are our favorites of the afternoon. It was difficult to narrow down which of the top reds and whites we enjoyed. We have chosen one single word to describe the wine from our point of view. Below are the 3 Whites and 3 Reds we have chosen, with their descriptions, photo and our final "take" on the wine from our point of view.
Ricossa Antica Casa Gavi DOCG:
Produced from Cortese grape grown in SE Peidmont Hills, this pale straw yellow wine displays green apple aromas with vanilla flavors and a certain minerality. This a great summer white wine that should be served chilled for that refreshing and crisp taste! This can be paired with lots of different cheeses. Final Take: CRISP
Seis Circles Blanco: Grown on the Pyrenees, in high altitude, this white is a refreshing option for Chard and Sauv Blanc drinkers. Aromas of intense orange blossom, green pear and yellow apple. Flavors of white peach, lemon oil and slight apricot. A great wine to pair with seared fish and pesto dishes! Final Take: INVIGORATING
Ferraton Cotes du Rhone Samorens Rose: Grenache 75%, Syrah, Cinsault. This is a French Wine. Intense and bright rose color. Aromas of red berries, raspberry and red currant. Fresh and lively. Final Take: VITALIZING
