Chatt Wine News Nov 14th

The Wine Shop is offering 10% off their selection of Cotes du Rhone wines this week. They are also doing a few tasting today featuring Orin Swift “Locations” wines: E-3, F-2, and I-1. These are delightful blends from Spain, France, & Italy. David Swift Phinney, the winery’s namesake, founded the winery in 1998. Since, he’s taken the wine market by storm with provocative, eye-catching labels and distinct, full-throttle flavor profiles.

I love this video of Somm Dustin Wilson “Tonging” a bottle of Port. I love good port in the winter and around the holiday.

An interesting article from the Wall St Journal on dark horse wines and trying varietals from wine regions that are aren’t particularly known for them.
