    Elevated Porch Pounders: Caruso & Minini Catarratto & Mary Taylor Cabrerisse

    Elevated Porch Pounders: Caruso & Minini Catarratto & Mary Taylor Cabrerisse

    Lainie and Chip check out two "elevated" porch pounders: Light bodied, quaffable wines that are just a wee bit more elegant than what comes out of boxes and (most) jugs. 



    Mary Taylor Cabrerisse 2020



    and



    Caruso & Minini Catarratto 2020



    Both wines were purchased at the suggestion of Tristain, wine buyer for Augusta Food & Wine in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood.

    USA Vs. France: Muscadet

    USA Vs. France: Muscadet

    Chip & Lainie decide that it is time to check out Muscadet (aka "Melon de Bourgogne" or just "Melon"). Lainie LOVES to compare so-called "New World" vs. "Old World" wines, so this week it was Bow & Arrow Johan Vineyard Melon 2020 and Jo Landron La Louvetrie Muscadet-Sèvre et Maine 2019. Both were purchased from The Noble Grape here in Chicago.

    Note: Yes, we continue to have some audio issues that we are working to resolve. Thank you for your patience!



    This week Lainie introduced Chip to two very tasty, reasonably priced white wines. They couldn't be more different from each other, but they are both delicious, great on their own or with food, and reasonably priced!



    Es Okay Pinot Gris 2018 from Rootdown 

    and

    Domaine Cavalier Saint-Guilhem-le-Desert Blanc 2019



    Both wines were purchased from Independent Spirits in Chicago.

Chicago Adrian ,

Relaxed and enjoyable content

Two wine enthusiasts try some less mainstream wines and share their reflections, advice, and various diversions.

Cheers!!

This is a great wine podcast for both those who really appreciate wine and all its nuances, as well as those who just like to drink it! You get great background on the wine, information on the vineyards and wine makers, excellent wine tasting descriptions, and even a joke! Enjoy!!
