Our wildly popular wine tasting program is back! Each month, we’ll take a virtual tour of one of the world’s wine regions with Steve Wilson of City Wine Market. Wine purchases are optional.
Steve Wilson from City Wine Market, 4821 W. 6th St., Suite N, has chosen wines from Chile this month, specifically the Colchagua and San Antonio Valleys, for our next Wine Around the World program. Chile has been producing wine for centuries but a focus on quality over quantity is something that is only a few decades old, and still not the dominant paradigm. He says Vina Polkura is doing some excellent work in this area. High-quality, small production. Their belief is that when the land is matched to the right grape varietal, and nature is allowed to do its job, the resulting wines really stand out.
Vina Polkura ‘Aylin’ Sauvignon Blanc, 2020 $14.99
Vina Polkura Syrah, 2017 $19.99
(You need not purchase wine to participate in this program.)
Steve recommends the following cheeses as accompaniments:
Goat cheese of all sorts with the Sauvignon Blanc and Gouda, Blue-Veined cheeses, and aged cheddar with the Syrah.
