It looks like we are in for a beautiful weekend and what better way to enjoy it than over some good wine in a relaxing setting. For this weekend's simple indulgence I am looking to head over to one of my favorite local wineries for a wine tasting. If you typically drink only one type of wine going to a winery is a great way to expand your palette. I prefer to drink red wine, so I use trips to the winery as a way to expand my knowledge of whites.
While traveling in Italy a few years back, I took this photograph of a beautiful wine vineyard we visited. While on this trip, I tasted a white wine that could rival any red in my mind. The white was a Vernaccia, which is a produced in and around the town of San Gimignano in Tuscany. If you ever find it on your wine list I highly recommend giving it a try! It would surely replace rose for me if it was readily available. Heres to hoping your weekend is filled with good friends and great wine!
