WHITNEY’S MONTHLY WINE PICK: ALWAYS UNDER $15, AND ALWAYS DELICIOUS
Choosing a wine can be an intimidating task for the uninitiated, but any seasoned wine drinker knows that good wine doesn’t always mean expensive wine. That’s where Whitney comes in. She’s here to help you pick a delicious bottle at an even more delicious price.
If you don’t already know her, I’d like to introduce all of you to my dear friend, Whitney Adams. A fabulous sommelier living in Los Angeles, she just launched her wine accessories brand and online shop, Bottle Stock, and blogs about wine and other drinking adventures at Brunellos Have More Fun. We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.
WHITNEY’S MARCH PICK:
2012 Etz Grüner Veltliner
$13, Domaine LA
This wine. Oh, this wine. It’s like a best friend that will never do you wrong. Grüner Veltliner is an Austrian grape variety that is almost always refreshing, verdant, lime-y, utterly drinkable, and in a liter bottle. Because, Austrians are geniuses like that and want to give us the gift of more wine per bottle. It’s an unspoken signal to drink it now and drink a lot of it. A perfect party or picnic wine that pairs with just about anything. Let’s pour a glass of this and toast to a Spring full of picnics just around the corner.
