2017 Château de Trinquevedel Traditional Reserve Rosé, Tavel AOC, France Wine of the Week with Annette Tomei I read recently about the importance of the color of a rosé to its shelf appeal in the American market. It seems that Americans now prefer a much paler, almost salmony pink hue to the deeper shades of […]
2017 Domaine Dupeuble, Beaujolais AC, Burgundy, France Wine of the Week with Annette Tomei Beaujolais may be most widely known for its Nouveau. Those juicy fruity young wines appear each November to be enjoyed for a brief, fun time, and then disappear as quickly as they arrived. However, Beaujolais also has a more serious side […]
2017 Sauvignon Republic, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand Wine of the Week with Annette Tomei I lived in the Napa Valley in the early 2000s.

2017 Frescobaldi, Pian di Rèmole Bianco, Toscana IGT, Italy Wine of the Week with Annette Tomei Gone are the days when Tuscan wine on a budget meant Chianti in a raffia-wrapped jug. The wine cost about the same as the candle that would eventually drip down its neck! Since then, Tuscan wines have developed an opulent […]
