Winesday Wednesday: 4/10

Hey guys and welcome to the first installment of Winesday Wednesday!!!!



I’m so excited about this post and can’t wait to see how future Winesday Wednesday posts turn out! This is a chance for anyone to submit wines (or other drinks!) each week so that I can assemble them in one neat little space. Submissions may include what foods were paired with each drink, how it tastes, where it can be purchased, price point…you name it! Let’s jump right to it!!!

Mary @mkc7946 (Instagram) enjoyed this lovely wine


Keith sent this in:

…He also sent me a pic of an Italian Nebbiolo that he has in the works!

Ja @ja_ontherun (Instagram) had some Choco Noir that she said was a sweet and smooth creamy chocolate drink with an alcohol bite

This weekend I stopped by a wine tasting at a local wine and cheese shop called The Spirited Gourmet, and I thought it would be fun to share my three favorites!  For a white, I really enjoyed the Durnberg.  It smelled delicious, almost like a granny smith apple, but then had more of a subtle grapefruit taste.  Very light and refreshing!  For red, a dry and crisp Greek wine (obviously) called Boutari.  Finally, we also sampled one beer from Dogfish Head, the Positive Contact.  This was an ale brewed with apple cider.  Right up my alley!

She said: I had it w/ my stuffed peppers Sunday nite…it’s a crisp white wine from Argentina. $15 from Whole Foods!

Sara @Turner_SR (twitter) sent me a pic that made me very jealous (since there is SNOW still here in Calgary) She said: …not actually wine, it’s a very large mug of pina colada in Cuba this past week

4.10 WW8

MY MAMA sent me this pic on Saturday. She has some white wine with Chicken Masala & Garlic Pasta.

Katie from KatieEnPursuit send in two awesome pics, saying:

Looking to join the Wednesday wine par-tay!  Super cool idea.  Now that the temps are warmer, it’s often called for to sit outside after a long day & enjoy some crisp white, the Seccola label from Trader Joe’s is $4.99 a bottle, hello bargain!

(So jealous that I can no longer hop over to Trader Joe’s some some super inexpensive, but AWESOME wine! And probably $50 in unintended groceries 😉 )
And to round off the first installment of Winesday Wednesday, here’s what I have to bring to the table:
