What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Wine Time should be all of the time! And, we can help with that because we want to make sure that you’re sipping your Summer best.
Between trips to the cotty and patio vibes with your downtown crew, we know that summer in the city goes by in the blink of an eye. That’s why we definitely can’t have you drinking bad wine. Every week, we take the guess work out of what you should buy in the LCBO.
La Marca Prosecco 2014
Tasting Note:Here’s a bright, off-dry Prosecco with notions of crunchy apple, pear and lemon zest, and an intriguing saline quality. An almond/marzipan character emerges on the finish. Chill, and pair with pan-seared or lightly grilled seafood, or with sushi. (Vintages panel, June 2016) via LCBO
