Leslie SbroccoMy 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 the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show.

Wines of the Week: KQED Wine Club
Our guests enjoyed some of these delicious offerings from the KQED Wine Club.

2009 Loredona Riesling, Monterey California
Hailing from the cooler climate of California’s Monterey peninsula, this aromatic, delicate white is an ideal match for everything from sushi to salads.

2008 Irony Pinot Noir, Monterey County, California
With elegance to spare, this berry-scented red sports a silky texture and ends with a kick of spice. Serve alongside grilled salmon, pork loin with mushrooms or soft cheeses.
