Meet Logan, Paul‘s grandson. How can you say “no” to that face?
Clearly, it is a Chardonnay kind of night… Morgan ‘Metallico’ @BankBourbonPHL. Love the wine and the ambiance here.
Hey it’s Courtney! A newbie wine rep who is having a blast tasting through the Vintage Imports portfolio. I came across a wine that I found has soul, ‘chops’ and just a powerful palate! @PeiranoWinery‘sThe Unknown!!! Mysterious, complex and just a yummy yummy wine! I blind tasted friends this past weekend at a BBQ and they could not believe this was not that other wine called…. Shhhh! (Conundrum).
The Unknown is rich, full bodied with jammy notes and a plummy richness. A definite ‘must have’ for the holiday weekend BBQs. Let your guests guess what varietals are in this beauty and have fun drinking it! It will be a conversation starter for sure…. (Wink)
Delicious dinner @SampanPhilly, drinking some Trefethen Double T chard….

Temperatures are in the 90’s for the past five days in a row. The extended forecast looks like the heat wave will continue. I’m eating lighter, with more salads and seafood listed on my “home” menu. Of course, wine is expected with every meal, so I turn to an old friend – Sancerre, in particular, Jean-Marc et Mathieu Crochet Sancerre 2014. Simply stated, this wine is light, invigorating, and charming.
To me, Sancerre has a striking balance between a fuller-bodied Pouilly Fume and a lighter-bodied Muscadet from the Loire Valley. Sancerre is made with Sauvignon Blanc grapes, and has a pale yellow color with slightly grey overtones. It’s bouquet is undeniably expressive of its region, with interesting notes of boxwood, brush, and almonds. This wine is thirst-quenching on a hot day, with pleasant citrus fruits that add the perfect match to my field greens with sauted shrimp overtop. When I’m thinking wines for the summer, I’m always thinking Sancerre.
Cheers, Mike Conti
