It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Can you believe it??? We are at that time of year when we visit family and friends for the holidays. This year has gone by so fast…what did I do all year? Well…since you asked, here is a list of some of the things Passaggio Wines accomplished in the year 2014. I couldn’t have done it without the help of some wonderful friends!!!
* We teamed up with The Sassy Kitchen to have small intimate wine maker dinners and introduce recipes that pair with Passaggio Wines.
* Introduced new clubs to the Passaggio Wines Clubs
* Visited the Finger Lakes area and found some wonderful wines
* Opened a tasting room on the Historic Sonoma Square
* We tripled our production this year and added a few new varietals to the Passaggio Line up!!
* Joined Vin65 and revamped the Passaggio Website
* Got a puppy!!!
* We met a lot of wonderful new friends!!!
Thank you for a wonderful year…
Have a safe and joyous holiday!!!
Guess what I did while in Virginia for the holidays…? Virtual sled riding!!! This is the only time you will see me on a sled…LOL The characters in this short film are my brother, sister-in-law, nephew, and my 15 month old grandson…oh and I’m the one in green. We had a blast!!! Winemakers love to have fun 😉
There is one wine that comes to mind when I think of wine I could drink year round, and that is Chardonnay. Whether you like it clean, crisp and unoaked (like Passaggio, for instance!) or the big, buttery, and oaky chardonnay, this grape makes some of the most versatile wines…wines you can pour in a glass for any occasion, anytime.
Chardonnay pairs well with so many dishes. An unoaked Chardonnay goes great with Lobster, Braised Pork or stews…all great dishes for the winter months. An oaky, buttery Chardonnay pairs well with Salmon or Lobster and Veal. Who does’t like Salmon or Lobster in the winter?
So, depending on the style of Chardonnay you prefer, you can still enjoy it all year round. I urge you to try Passaggio’s Unoaked Chardonnay during the winter months and pair it with some of your favorite winter dishes. Have fun with it…you never know what new pairings you might come up with. Sharing them with friends and family makes it even better.
Passaggio Wines would like to wish everyone a wonderful holiday. I want to thank those who made my journey this year an exciting one. I am looking forward to 2011…sit back, relax with family and friends, dream big, and “Follow Your Passion”
