    QOTD – I like dogs overall, but Patches the cat is quite the critter!

    QOTD: This week is one year since our four-legged friend died. Our yellow labrador retriever lived 14 1/2 years.

    I have enjoyed the Brunori Verdicchio. They sell it at Moore Brothers, Wilmington.

    Today I bought Fattoria Laila Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi at a Pennsylvania wine & spirits shop, Fine Wine and Good Spirits is the State Store’s new name!?!

    Verdicchio is a fantastic grape variety – you can get good wines from £5-6 in the UK – its crazy.
    QOTD: RIP Muffin (don’t laugh) – the cutest cat eveeeeeeerrrrr. She used to eat cereal – honestly. I know Gary can respect that.

    That’s the J-Mans job Pete!

  • Thanks much for the verdicchio…I am always game for them…right up my favorite part of the palate. These two seem like stunning deals, and are now on radar.

    QOTD: We have a few ‘dependents’, but it all started with one.
    When I first moved to VT I though I wanted a dog, but my cousin was a vet tech at the time, told me I needed a cat, and that she had one in mind already. Looney was a tiny tortoisehell that had been rescued from a bad pet store, near death from an eye infection. The vet got her back to health, she lived at the vet office, and went home with different employees each weekend. She was about 6 moths old when I got her, and she is still one of the best things that has ever happened to me. A wild free roamer, extremely social, intelligent, and great friend to many people…she taught me how to talk to animals.
    When she was about 10 she developed a heart issue that led to a stroke that paralyzed her back legs. Despite the handicap we found a way to take care of her, and she was clearly vibrant, loving, and appreciative. Even drove to Florida with us. That lasted for three years until a couple of days after Thanksgiving, just after she had seen the whole family, she chose to stop taking food and water and the vet said she was close to her time, so we let her go. I was not sure I could ever have a cat again…
    Time takes care of things.
    We now have two retired cats (Nutterby – the blind winery cat, and PeePo) that we adopted when we moved to this new house, the two dogs (Mitchel and Shandie), and we still have the two Donkeys, Mojo and Josie…hence BurroBoy.

    Be kind to animals, they help remind us that we are human.

  • I think i’d have to say my favorite pet is not having a pet. But having chickens or something would be cool, so you could actually eat the eggs, and then eat the chickens.

    Once again, you have given me a new wine to try. Will look for this.

    QOTD – Pretty much a cat person. Have both, love them all.

    Inspired by this episode, my husband and I opened a Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi this weekend (not Brunori but some other one). I thought it was crisp and delicious. It surprised me that my husband said it reminded him of a CA chardonnay. He likes CA chardonnay and he thought I wouldn’t like the Verdicchio because he thought it was creamy. I didn’t think it was creamy until he said it. The mouth feel was richer than expected and we both enjoyed it.

    My only issue was that it had a FAKE cork. I like real cork or screw tops/stelvin enclosures. I wish the bottle identified if it had a fake cork. I’d steer clear. They are difficult to open.

    Never had a Verdicchio, will definitely have to try very soon.

    QOTD: English Bulldog

  • I live in Jesi and I want to thank u Gary for this wonderful review!

    The one from Sardinia was probably a Vermentino, not a Verdicchio. I have never heard of Verdicchio being cultivated in Sardinia.
