2015 Oso’s Blend and the Red Blend Tasting Event

2015 Oso’s Blend and the Red Blend Tasting Event

by Beth Heiserman

 

Coming February 2nd, I am doing the first “Red Blend Tasting Event”. I have done many wine pairing events, but not a blend event. I have chosen specific Reyes Winery Blends for this educational yet fun food and wine pairing. Every wine has a story, and I love sharing each one of them with you. Its $15 per person and it includes a Reyes Winery 12oz glass to take home. Please make your reservations in our tasting room or online at https://squareup.com/store/reyes-winery/.

I always have someone asking me can you drink red wine with fish…YES!  a red/pink fish can be paired with a red wine, like salmon or ahi tuna. I love having Zinfandel with salmon. Our 2013 Zinfandel has won silver medals in the 2016 Los Angeles International Wine Competition,   plus 87 points in the 2016 Toast of the Coast Wine Competition,  and in the 2017 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Plus a bronze in the 2016 San Francisco International Wine Competition.

I had gone to a wine and spirit tasting and they had a cinnamon vodka. So…me and my inquisitive nature asks, what kind of cinnamon did they use? I did ask before I tried it. The response I got was, uh…there are different types? Yes, there are many different types of cinnamon. Not all cinnamon is the same, just like grapes. There are so many varietals of grapes.

True cinnamon comes from India, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Sri…

Table Grapes vs Wine Grapes

Is there a difference?

By Beth Heiserman

Many people have asked me in the tasting room or during a tour the difference between wine grapes and table grapes…Is there a difference? I have even heard is there a chemical reaction that converts grapes into a varietal of wine. At first I didn’t understand the question. I actually had that question twice in one day. I asked them to elaborate; they thought all grapes were the same and that we add some chemicals to crate the varietal of wine. No, we don’t….
