Year Round Wine

Posted on

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.

A Stainless Christmas In July

Posted on

Is that all stainless…?  I get that question a lot about my wines.  Passaggio Unoaked Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Rosé are all fermented and aged in stainless tanks.  They do not go through malolactic fermentation which gives these wines a nice crispness that pairs well with food.  I also love to ferment the wines in different vessels, with different yeasts. They are left on the lees and stirred often.  I feel this adds a nice complexity to the wines.  The wines are then blended and cold/heat stabilized.

I was very excited to unwrap my new stainless drums and my new stainless tank.  It felt like Christmas in July.  If you would like a tour and tasting of Passaggio Wines just send an email to passaggiowines@comcast.net – it’s a pretty cool place – check it out Dogpatch Wine Works

Hope to see you there!
