Just because I think it will be fun, I've planned three comparitive wine tastings for the trip(which means we're also taking our own glasses...can't rely on the condo to have anything beyond tumblers!).
First, we'll be comparing a dry Rose from Wolffer Estate with one from Comtesse Therese. These are, honestly, two of only three or four Roses I've ever had that I actually liked...probably because they are dry, crisp and anything but White Zinfandel.
I've also set up two tastings of Long Island reds, the first comparing Wolffer's newly released Cabernet Franc with one of my favorite Cab Francs, from Broadfields Wine Cellars.
The second is a battle of two Pinot Noirs...one, again, from Wolffer and the other made by Broadfields under The Tasting Room label.
You'll notice that Wolffer is prominent...that's because I'm doing a column on their wines that's due right when we get back from the Cape!
