Tasting Moscato

Hi loves! Another week and another wine tasting, but sadly this is my very last one for my Geography of Wine course! I have learned so much over this semester, and I’m basically a wine professional (well, maybe not quite but I like to think so). My final tasting is a Barefoot Moscato… are we surprised? Variety: Muscat Region: California Country: United States…

It was a great learning experience to see how different wines pair with different cheeses. I expanded my horizons this week and tried three different reds (a Cabernet from Chile, Syrah and a Cabernet from California) and three kinds…

Tasting Rosé

Hi loves! Let’s be honest, I picked out this bottle of Rosé because the label is so pretty. Pink and it says Rosé all day? A dream for this Gen Z basic white girl. It looked so pretty sitting on my bar cart that I almost didn’t want to drink it, but of course, I did. Variety: Grenache Region: Pays d’Oc Country: Italy…

Tasting Moscato Sangria

Hi loves! This week I had some friends over, so I thought why not try a big boxed wine that holds 34 glasses? I got a Moscato Sangria from Peter Vella Vineyards. I was surprised that the wine was white because Sangria automatically makes me think red, but it was still yummy. Variety: Muscat Region: California Country: United States of America Year: Not Specified…
