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. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.

Check, Please! Bay Area guests drank the following wines on the set of episode 705:

2007 Trione Chardonnay, Russian River Valley, California $30
From third generation grape growers in Sonoma County, this beautifully aged Chard meshes the core brightness of Russian River fruit with the lushness of the vintage. It's a wine to sip poolside with nothing but your suit, or table side with everything from fish to fowl.

2009 Lasseter Family Winery "Chemin de Fer," Sonoma Valley, California $40
You know the name, John Lasseter of Cars and Toy Story fame. Add one more credit to John's resume — vintner -- as he and his wife Nancy are the proprietors of Lasseter Family Winery. In a nod to their Francophile passions, they focus on French-style wines including this Rhone blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes. It's succulent, spicy and simply superb.
