July 13, 2022 Refreshing White Wines from the New World
Our summertime white wines are from the ‘New World’ – “home” wines that can be easily found in our local liquor stores and are a bit different than the hordes of Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs with whom we tend to be overly familiar.

It’s summertime. It’s hot. And, it’s time to fire up the grill! But what type of wine is best to pair with those foods you’re cooking on the barbie?
Austrian wine is for those who like delicately perfumed aromatics and mouth-watering acidity. It makes sense that Austria would grow wines with great elegance and acidity, because the country is on the same parallel as northern France and Canada

Here's what some of our consistent wine tasters recently told us:
"I can recommend wines to strangers in the liquor store"
I was standing in front of the wine section at the grocery store when the man next to me said, "Hey, do you know anything about wine?" After a moment's hesitation, I thought - yes, yes I do! So I said it. "Yes, I do. What are you looking for?"
I was able to send him on his way with a yummy cab sav for less than $10 -- and I realized how much I have learned at Joie de Vin's Virtual Wine Tastings! Then I grabbed the New York State Riesling and went on my merry way. Good wines to be found in lots of places!
"Never before have I received so much value from one website!"
I signed up for the monthly membership thinking, 'what have I got to lose?'. And what I discovered was a wine lover's paradise!
I love the online courses, and can't wait to join the next virtual wine tasting. I learn something new every day from this membership!
