...MOVE AWAY FROM CHARDONNAY, PINOT & SYRAH...
We can all get stuck in the familiarity of grapes that we know. Broaden your horizons.
Starting with the crazies: Bibi Graetz Casamatta Bianco is made as a blend from Vermentino, Trebbiano and a little known, near extinct variety called Ansonica. Quinta de Muradella Candea Bianco is made of varieties you have never heard of from Galicia (Dona Blanca, Verdello & Treixadura) Spain made by one of Spain's most revered winemakers.
In the reds Scala Ciro Rosso is an Italian wine from Calabria made from Gaglioppo with packaging that makes it look like a formula 1 race car. Flor de Maoi Alentejano is a meaty Portugese red made from Touriga Nacional & Trincadeira. From Spain, the super-popular Celler del Roure Vermell is made from Mando and aged in clay amphorae, a red wine with the spirit of a white according to the wine maker. Finishing with an appellation you ain't never heard of before: Lo Sang Del Pais Marcillac (the blood of the soil) is a spicy little number from a grape and an appellation NEVER seen banging about!
