Wine Blogging Wednesdays! I’ve never participated! Not because I didn’t want to, but mostly because I am not really a wine drinker. I think that might have changed.
Megan came over on Monday night to help me move some furniture. I bribed her with talk of home cooking, wine and gossip. Who can resist that?
I whipped up a quick pasta dish using linguine, fresh diced zuchinni and yellow squash, some of the Fetzer Gewuiztraminer white wine, garlic, olive oil, lemon and butter.
I had roasted some peppers over the weekend steamed some green beans and sliced a couple of tomatoes, popped a loaf of garlic bread in the oven and 30 minutes later, we were enjoying a fresh spring meal with a bottle of sweet white wine.
Now here’s the part where you discover I have no idea what I am talking about when discussing wine. I hear people talk about white wine being dry. I couldn’t tell if this wine was dry. It was sweet and refreshing and a little fruity. It seemed to be a little more carbonated than other wines I have tasted, but not as much as champagne. I quite enjoyed it and even had another glass last night with my leftovers. (OK, I actually killed the bottle.) I would definitely buy this wine. (This particular bottle was given to me by 2 friends who stayed a weekend at my place.)
So hopefully now I will happily participate in future Wine Blogging Wednesdays!
