Wine quiver. Five non-ordinary, non-boring wines for everyday drinking.

September 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

Writers love to wax, and wine writers are some of the worst. But it’s mostly onanism. Much as I want my writing to be about the poetry, readers want it to be about the wine: Tell me what to buy and drink, dammit! That’s probably why last week’s wine column was one I heard a lot about, from customers and readers. No fancy stuff, just five wines under $15 that you wouldn’t ordinarily pick up:  labels are weird, varietals aren’t named, the wines aren’t just “fresh, dry white” or “luscious, fruit-forward red”.

Picpoul, an uncategorizably nutty/floral southwest-France white from Grenache and Macabeu, an unoaked Italian Chardonnay that tastes like a Vouvray, a great Piemonte red blend, and a Ventoux table red oozing Provençe. All under $15!
