A Virtual Tasting on American Wines (ONLINE)
"California dominates the US with approximately 90% of the wine production, which is turn is dominated by the large multinationals such as Ernest & Julio Gallo and making cheap and nasty bulk wine. However, at the other end of the spectrum, some of the world’s finest Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and especially Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are found here." Cecile
YES ... BUT, tonight is not about the infamous. No, tonight is about discovering what is a little more unusual, but worth trying ... how exciting!
I love introducing you to wine regions and grape varieties you might have never heard of, but which have become my very own favourites and may become yours too after this tasting! So step aside California, as Washington State is stepping up and leading the way now in terms of quality, with Chateau Ste-Michelle voted THE BEST winery in the World ... quite an accolade indeed! We shall try an American-style of Chardonnay from one region and a stunning Old World-style of Merlot from the other region, both worth exploring, trust us ;-)
Here are the 2 wines I would like you to purchase from Waitrose and taste with me on the night:
- Chateau Souverain, Chardonnay, California £9.79
- Chateau Sainte-Michelle, Merlot, Washington State £12.99
