My Week with Jim Clendenen

The wine world has lost a true legend. Jim Clendenen, a pioneer in his industry is gone but will never be forgotten, for he has left a lasting impression for generations of winemakers and wine professionals. In the wine industry, being considered "old school" in Italy, France or Greece is considered cool and hip, yet old school in California is considered passé or dated. This may have to do with how young the California wine scene is in comparison to some countries that date back to 6000 B.C. Either way, Jim was considered "old school", well at least in the time that I knew him. He championed the notion of being able to enjoy a glass of wine for lunch "without getting drunk".

What's MetroWines Drinking with Brett Watson

"These are current staff favorites," says Brett Watson, Wine Buyer @MetroWines. "We are tasting wines that reflect the changing season, drifting into warmer days while nights remain cool."

"Things are Getting Green Tasting"
Kofererhof Alto Adige Pinot Grigio 2016

"Extremely cold climate and high elevation Pinot Grigio with the quality to put a teeny tiny bit of age on it from an Italian area that used to be considered Germany. Pinot Grigio in a hand-made couture wedding dress and stiletto pumps."

Louis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado Branco 2019
"Field blend of 6 different Douro Portugal varietals made by a legend Louis Seabra. Close your eyes and imagine Portugese Burgundy at half the cost."

Domaine Suavette Les Gravouilles Gamay 2019
"What "not from Beaujolais" 100% Gamay should taste like. Made as true to the land as possible and 8 days of Carbonic makes this as fresh and energetic as a new puppy playing in the backyard!"

 

The Zoom is "on the house" but, if you want to taste along with Brett, the three wines will be available for purchase at a discounted price @MetroWines for $59.68 (including tax) Call (828) 575-9525 for purchase and curbside pickup!
