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: Don't Waste Wine - Make Vinegar!
2013 Stemmari ‘Dalila’ Bianco Terre Siciliane, Italy $15
Sicily is an exotic yet classic place and this wine expresses the island’s traditional-marries-modern bent beautifully. A combination of the native white variety, Grillo, with a portion of the international star, Viognier, Stemmari’s unique blend is explosively aromatic. Tropical fruit mingles with citrusy freshness in a white that over-delivers in quality. Pour alongside sweet potato and turkey chili for a mouth-watering match.
