Wine of the Week is straight from Italy! Notes include citrus and peach. For about $11 a bottle, this was an outstanding deal. We purchased it from a local wine shop in Queen Anne, Washington but after doing some research online I see that it can be bought at other places as well. Pair this wine with fish or poultry this summer for those perfect hot weather days ahead.
This weeks Wine of the Week is a 2014 Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon. Oregon (my home state!) is known for their Pinots so this was bound to be delicious. The notes in this wine include cranberry, black cherry, strawberry and vanilla. The finishing notes consist of raspberry and a “bit of pie spice”. (www.sozo.com) Sozo recommends pairing this wine with either pork, salmon, poultry, veal, or vegetarian dishes.

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! This week I’m switching it up for Wine of the Week and blogging about spiked sparking water. Only 100 calories and all natural, this makes for the perfect weekend drink as we BBQ and celebrate. Flavors vary from Natural Lime to Ruby Grapefruit, Raspberry and even Black Cherry. I also tried the Ruby Grapefruit flavor which was delicious!
