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, beer and spirits tips with each episode. This week I discuss: Grenache.
Domaine Bousquet, sparkling Rosé Brut, Mendoza, Argentina $18
No better way to ring in fall than with the pop of a bottle of bubbly. When the Southern French winemaking family, the Bousquets, moved to Argentina in 1990 they planted vineyards dedicated to organic farming. This deliciously-crisp, lightly-pink sparkling wine is made with organically-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from high in the Andes mountains. It’s a refreshing sparkler sporting a price tag to allow for everyday drinking.
