This week is a special week in the wine world. It is the second annual Regional Wine Week.
What’s that you may say…well basicaly, you are asked to drink a local wine. For me that’s easy, I have been doing that since this blog started back in July.
By drinking locally you are helping on a number of fronts. First you are supporting the local wine shop. Second you are helping the regional vineyards that you purchase your wine from. And lastly, you are helping to stimulate the economy.
So this week, I urge all my readers to spread the word to their friends and family to participate in this annual event. Walk into your local wine shop, tell the person who works in the shop, ” I normally drink _________, I am looking for that wine, but from the North Fork, can you recommend something?” And if they cannot help you, ask why not, then go to another shop, until you find what you are looking for.
Or, if you love your Barefoot Merlot, put it down this week and try some Long Island Merlot, I bet you will not be disappointed.
And when you polish off that bottle, come back here and tell me about it. This could be a fun week.
Think, Drink and Enjoy….Localy!
