Midwest Travel section on About.com, and keeping up with my other blog, Wine And Spirits Travel.
I’ve also been doing a lot of sampling on and off the road. It’s about time I shared some of these great items. * I expect to start updating this column again at least monthly.
My favorite of what I’ve received this summer:
2013 Mercer Yakima Valley Pinot Gris
A must try for those like me who really appreciate a good light and white.
An easy drinking bubbly which has a hint of strawberry:
Montalbera Bollicine Roseus Brut
A peachy Moscato-like wine you can take this along anywhere:
Naked Wines Wanderlust White
For the dry red drinker, who likes that cherry nose:
2009 Reserve Abacela Tempranillo
If you like a sparkle in your apple, you’ll love the strong green apple notes in this:
Kramer Vineyards 2013 Celebrate Pinot Gris
Though it’s not one of my favorite wines, this not too heavy, black cherry and white pepper taste took me in:
2010 Mckinley Springs Cabernet Sauvignon
Straight up cold, or on the rocks, this one’s super-refreshing:
A smooth taste distilled with corn and wheat from the heartland:
Salute America Vodka
I love this brand of zero calorie sparkling water that is sweetened with real fruit. My favorite is the Coconut Pineapple (add some rum and you have a super skinny piña colada), but I also enjoyed the Peach Mango and Coconut.
*As is always my policy, I only share what I like, regardless of what is given to me complimentary.
