STOCK-UP ON THIS PAIR FOR FAMILY EVENTS
‘Picking-up the wine’ is usually a last minute chore, but why not get it ahead – so there’s one less thing on the to-do list. I just tasted a red and white that would produce a wow at the big family events such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. So get it done.
Many wineries are crafting show-off, multiple grape blends to appeal to non wine drinkers. Versions of fruit cocktails. Instantly appealing, and of course with a sweet kiss. However a good winemaker can craft a crowd-pleaser while keeping the pretty grapes in check, and letting the vibrant ones carry the show. So while the experience is glam, it is also refreshing, and uplifting. Such is Henry’s wine. Get some and you’ll be the star in the family.
Produced from a blend of Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon and Gewurztraminer.
Ch. Treviac has the lush, smooth, cuddly characteristics that most want in red wine. Think Merlot style, even though this is not Merlot. Treviac also delivers a snazzy, something-special feeling. The old French trick! You simply cannot go wrong opening this at festive family dinners.
