Happy Friday! Congrats to Sarah Parker in St. Helena, CA for correctly guessing Checkerboard Kings Row Red was the wine in my glass last week! Just when I thought I was going to have to toss out another hint, she came through with the winning guess. This Friday brings a glass of Red and a glass of White to the table. Check out the hints below – first one to guess correctly will win a bottle of each of the wines in my glass! Happy Friday and good luck! - Kerrin Laz, Wine Director
Hint 1 – The wines in my glass are a White Blend and a Merlot from Napa Valley.
Hint 2 – These wines are produced by the vintner, who also consults with other wineries.
Hint 3 – While they are currently producing other wines, it was the White wine in my glass that first garnered them attention in the press.
Hint 4 – Every year during the holiday season, the vintners stop by my office to give me a jar of their delicious Fig jam that they also produce. I've heard they make a great Apple Butter as well.
Hint 5 – The White wine in my glass is one of my favorite go-to summertime wines and pairs perfectly with a few dozen Hog Island Oysters.
