There’s an Asian twist to the Cal-Ital dishes at our first stop, Jason’s Restaurant in Greenbrae. Then, it’s all about locally-sourced, responsibly-raised meat in Oakland at Clove & Hoof Butchery and Restaurant. Finally, a spacious eatery serving steaming dim sum at lunch and sizzling hot pot at dinner, in San Francisco at Dragon Beaux.

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: Sparkling Wines
2015 Trinchero “Mary’s Vineyard” Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley, California $24
This single-vineyard sauvignon shows the heights the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety can reach in California. More on the melon and tropical fruit scale than citrus/herbal side, it sports a deep minerality that intrigues. Its complexity will appeal to SB fans, while the lack of overt green notes will appeal to Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio drinkers looking to enjoy a great bottle of white. Pair alongside steamed fish in lemon beurre blanc sauce served over jasmine rice.
