74. Episode #20 Part 2 – Rose – Chilean

In part 2 we move to a more full bodied and drier Rose in Part from Chile. John Felt that the Rose we tasted in Part 1 of this episode wine would only be suitable for nibbles, he felt this Rose could be matched with seafood.

68. Episode #19 Introduction – Italian Red Wines

In this introduction we change the format slightly as we start our world tour of wines. Put another way we start to talk about wines from different countries and we start with some Red wines from Italy.
Chianti, Valpolicella Classico and the lesser known Nerello Masalese from Sicily are the first wines we taste on our tour around the colourful world of wine. Let us know your thoughts on the new direction.
