On Saturday, August 4, Vine 2 Wine will be hosting a complimentary wine and cheese tasting event from 3 until 6pm. This tasting will feature Riff Alois Legeder Pinot Grigio 2010 as well as La Posta Bonarda 2010. The Pinot Grigio is made from select long-term contracted grape growers with their vineyard sites in the Trentino, Veneto, and Alto Adige winegrowing regions, on the foothills of the Dolomites. This pinot grigio features a brilliant straw-yellow color with a green tint. Fruity notes of apples and peach as well as mineral notes are detected on the nose. This medium-bodied pinot has a very grapey flavor with a crisp and well balanced aftertaste and good length. The Bonarda has intense ruby color with bright aromas of fresh red & black raspberries and subtle smoky oak notes. The flavor of freshly-crushed raspberries is echoed on the palate, along with notes of white pepper, dark chocolate, and a touch of sandalwood and mint on the finish. It will pair well with just about any foods with which you would drink Zinfandel or other fruit-driven reds.
