EP 457 Vernaccia Wines From Italy, Another White Wine To Pay Attention To.

Vernaccia is another classic white wine that is overlooked by so many as they focus on the 1 or 2 white wines they drink from Italy. I hate to pick on Pinot Grigio but I want people to expand their palates.

Wines tasted in this episode:

Fontaleoni Vernaccia Di San GimignanoVernaccia di San Gimignano
2006 Sovestro Vernaccia Di San GimignanoVernaccia di San Gimignano

    and then I’d echo Thunderball’s sentiments about Japan and the lack of a visit from Mr. Vaynerchuk.

    Hmmm, probably “What are you drinking?” followed by “any good?” followed by “You want to get a bottle?”

    Gary, I would ask you “how does your wife deal with your busy schedule?” I’m active duty Air Force and I see on a daily basis how wives have a hard time dealing with their husbands busy schedule. You’re a very busy business man, how does your wife deal with it?

    QOTD: I’ve been having bad luck with a local liquor store. What should I look for in a liquor store? What kind of questions should I ask? Obviously if I lived in NJ I’d just head over to WineLibrary, but I don’t have that luxury.

    Hi Gary,

    I’m done lurking – here is my first post.

    Could you explain to me the difference between the words “variety” and “varietal”? I THOUGHT (and the dictionary seems to agree with me) that a grape “variety” was the type of grape, e.g. Cabernet Sauvignon or Vernaccia, and that “varietal” was the adjective referring to a variety. In other words, a varietal wine would be a wine made from a single variety. You guys seem to use varietal where I would use variety.
