Flavorful, fresh, authentic ingredients combine to create traditional dishes at El Mono Fresh Flavors of Peru in El Cerrito. Attentive service and a modern vibe set the stage for the aromatic seasonings from Myanmar, India, China and Thailand that unite at Rangoon Ruby Burmese Cuisine in San Carlos. A menu reflecting the new cultures of American cooking, hand-crafted cocktails, and casual-considerate service all come together at The Table in San Jose.

My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine, beer, and spirits the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show. I will also share some wine tips with each episode. This week I discuss: How is champagne different from other sparkling wines?
2012 Livio Felluga “Terre Alte” Rosazzo, Italy $49
Hailed as one of Italy’s top white wines, this beauty is a world-class treat. Livio Felluga is a respected northern Italian producer based in the rolling hills of Collio and Colli Orientali del Friuli. Terre Alte is named for historic vineyards and is a trifecta of taste blending grapes Fruilano, Pinot Bianco and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s fine-boned structure laced with mineral complexity makes it an age-worthy white worth the splurge.
