This weekend’s tasting is truly a treat. Mac has selected two delightful summer wines, from unusual regions, and made from unusual grapes.
The first is Kloppitsch Rét, a blend of Zweigelt and St. Laurent, which are two Austrian varietals that lend to a light, fruity, slightly savory wine that is perfect for summertime.
The other wine is a Savoie from Apremont. Savoie (“Sah-VWAH”) is a region in the French Alps where Jacquère (“Zhah-KEER”) grapes are grown—which is the same grape used to make Armagnac. Meanwhile, Apremont is a sub-region in Savoie where a massive rockslide completely changed the soil in the 1500’s, ultimately making this area a wonderfully unique wine-growing subregion.
Come in and give ‘em a swirl!
