Wedding Wine Tasting: Freakout
Yum! Am sampling the most delicious white wine, Freakout, courtesy of my Uncle of Vintage Point, the Napa Valley based independently owned boutique marketing partner for luxury wine producers in the US, Canada and the Carribbean, so that we may pick the finest wines for the wedding.
What I forgot about is the fact that David is in the prime of his shooting schedule for remake of The Taking of Pelham 123, which means that although he is working in the City, he is really never home! Except to sleep. It's funny how people want to throw you a party, to meet the fiance (David), but the finance can't attend!
And so, I have cracked open the bottle of Freakout by myself (Freakout is one of many brands that was shipped to us), and it's really quite a happy wine. I'm pacing it, though, because we may have a little party on a Sunday in mid June, when David would be able to come, so it would be most fun to have the rest of the wine then. Stay tuned.
Meanwhile, Freakout is delicious. Here's a list of all of the brands that Vintage Point represents. Here's how Freakout is described:
"freakout, n: an experience of unrestrained excitement.
"Looking to challenge the traditional ways of Friuli winemaking on the Italian-Slovenian border, maverick Italian winemakers began experimenting with new styles of winemaking, creating unique and exciting white wine blends. When Mike Drash, Winemaker for Luna Vineyards in Napa Valley, tasted these exotic white wines, you could say he freaked out. The secret of "freakout" is in the innovative winemaking. Each varietal is treated individually and then married together two months before bottling to create the ultimate blend."

Yum is all I can say. I think this one will be served at the wedding. Will go nicely with lobster.
