The soulful voice of Ella Fitzgerald sang “Summertime and the livin’ is easy” and The Isley Brothers noted that “Summer breeze makes me feel fine.” Put on some summertime tunes, kick back, and enjoy the “Summer Breeze” (Seals & Crofts) along with a glass of wine.
We are family, I got all my Pinots with me, we are family, Get up everybody and sip!
Happy Spring and Happy Easter to those who celebrate. This weekend, in honor of Easter, we will feature wines that would make a great addition to your holiday table, or your Springtime table!
“Pét-Nat,” or “pétillant naturel,” is the term given to sparkling wines made with a single fermentation. Fermentation is started in-tank, then the wine is put into a bottle and topped with a crown cap, like those on beer or glass soda bottles. The yeast in the bottle will continue to ferment the sugar in the grape juice, and the carbon dioxide that is a byproduct of fermentation has nowhere to go, except into the wine itself, yielding a sparkling wine.
Join City Vino on Thursday night, June 25th, at 7 PM, as we virtually hit the highway with a tasting of wines from Highway 12 Winery. Jon Yeager, of International Cellars, and Paul Giusto and Jeff Lubin, of Highway 12, will be steering us on this trip along the highway. The tasting will feature the Highway 12 Carneros Highway Chardonnay 2018 , Highway 12 Sauvignon Blanc 2019, and the Highway 12 Pinot Noir 2017.
