While white production is more dominant in the north, the reds begin to take over moving farther south. I tasted blends of local grapes and European “stalwarts” for both red and white varietals. I tasted Pinot Gris, Traminer, Chardonnay, Fetasca Alba and Aligote for the whites and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Rara Neagra for the reds. I also tasted an interesting Rose or two and an ice wine.
Albastrele Wines Company stood out as far as my taste buds were concerned. Their Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot Rose were all excellent.
All in all…a good day!
