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!
