Drama, Drama, Drama

Posted in Uncategorized on 1 August 2018 by stephen wayne

Winemaking in Drama (yes, it’s an appellation in Macedonia, Greece) dates back to antiquity. We’ve been looking for a sensational white from the region and finally found this one. Refreshing with intense aromas of exotic fruits and citrus. Clean minerality, a touch of spice, a hint of white pepper, and waves of what we professionally call “deliciousness”. $22.50 and in stock today. Perfect pairing: page 26 in Blue Water Cafe (great Vancouver restaurant): Halibut Cheeks Poached in Olive Oil with Bouillabaisse and Saffron Potatoes. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805 #thatwinenerd
