Wine Around the World is Retirement Boot Camp's monthly exploration of wines from various regions of the globe. We meet via Zoom on the third Thursday of the month. Local experts will recommend their favorite wines and lead the virtual “tastings.” Wine purchases are optional.
This month, Steve Wilson from City Wine Market (4821 W 6th St., Suite N) returns with two wines from South Africa's Western Cape. His selections are:
1.) Graham Beck Brut Sparkling wine. "I love this wine. It’s made using the same grapes and tradition technique as French Champagne." $19.99
2.) David Finlayson “The Pepper Pot” Red Blend. "Again, it's sort of a French knock-off, as it’s dead-ringer for the red blends of France’s southern Rhone Valley." $15.99
"Both wines do nicely on their own but would not turn down charcuterie board," Steve says.
The program is free, but registration is required.
