Experience and inherited craft are essential for great food.
Again, Wine too! Good to be open minded to change
but hold onto the handed down, the tradition, the why fix it if it ain't broken!
I asked Brett Watson of The Asheville School of Wine
for a Bottle that would pair, generally speaking, with family recipes.
He said: "Ryme Las Brisas 2018 Vermentino, Carneros"
"Since 07 Megan and Ryan Glaab have been organically producing
Italian inspired Vermentino out of the coveted Las Brisas site on the western
Edge of Carneros, CA. The “Hers” bottling is pure, polished and sexy bringing you
to a fresh, seaside, cliffs edge cafe on the Ligurian coastline as mush as ANY white wine I’ve ever tasted from the states. Perfect viscosity and fresh minerality from
the foggy mornings on Las Brisas and just enough salty backend to wrap
the whole thing up into a linear bow. Serve with seafood risotto!
*** $22 on the shelf @MetroWines ***
$26.99 at wine.com and unavailable.
$25 at the winery. Not sold at Vivino. $29 at Drizly. $27 at Bergamot.
I could go on! Suffice it to say: Shop LocalLY and save!
ALSO, be sure to ask Brett about
the “His” bottling with extended skin-contact
...if you’re into that sorta thing.
