I have long been fascinated with Spain. Not just the wines but the country and the culture. I am fortunate now to embark on a journey through La Rioja and beyond with the incomparable Jorge Ordonez Selections and you're invited!
Jorge Ordonez is truly a pioneer of the Spanish wine industry. In 2007 he said, "When nobody cared about Spanish wines, I was there." It's the truth.
So here's where we start. Three remarkable wines and a board of meat and cheese that served as Friday night dinner. Over the weeks to come we will go deeper... this is just a tease. Will you come with me?
Three price points, three styles, three stories. Separate posts on each coming this week!
Sierra Cantabria Unica 2016 | Vinedos Sierra Cantabria - D.O.Ca. Rioja
Codice 2018 | Dominio De Eguren - Vino de la Tierra de Castilla
El Puntido Gran Reserva 2007 | Vinedos de Paganos - D.O.Ca. Rioja
A gorgeous piece from one of my favorite food and beverage companies: Mixologist World. It is the perfect size and even has a drawer with four very sharp utensils. The entire piece is well-made and attractive. Use this link to order yours on Amazon for $40.
THE CHARCUTERIE & CHEESE:
From Frank's Bodega, a small, premium grocery store that opened in my neighborhood when the owner's original business of catering for performers visiting Red Rocks Amphiteater was decimated by COVID-related show cancelations. I love their selection of premium deliciousness!
Stay tuned for more! Until we can travel again, let's continue to discover the world through wine!
The best days are spent with happy people, drinking wine, and smiling even when the year has been a tough one. Sean and Nicole Minor GET IT!!!
