Tonight was a beautiful evening to enjoy one of our favorite wines on the patio. Granda is a blend of Chambourcin, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from our great friends Charles and Ann at @BakerBuffaloCreek. The mellow reds blend wonderfully, and are accented by the acidity of the Chambourcin.
Since we are impatient and can’t wait to decant the wine, we really like our Vinturi aerator. It instantly aerates wines and opens them up, revealing their bouquet and complexity. Its amazing how much air it incorporates so quickly! This is a must have for any red wine lover. 🍷
One of our traditions is after opening a bottle of wine, you can’t deposit the cork in the cork cage without a kiss ♥️. Needless to say, we have LOTS of corks, and I get LOTS of kisses 😊💋
It’s well worth your time to visit Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard at 3521 Fallston-Waco Road Lawndale, NC 28090. http://www.bakerbuffalocreek.com. They are offering curbside pickup during the Covid-19 crisis. Granda is $18 per bottle and is a wonderful choice for red wine lovers. Their Chambourcin is also one of our favorites. If you’re not familiar with this varietal, you need to give it a try. It is a NC signature as it grows well in this region. While you are there, you will have a great time listening to Charles, the winemaker. He and his wife Ann are delightful! Listen to his story about “from shine to wine” telling the history of the farm where the vineyard is located. We will feature a story on this vineyard in a later post.
I hope you are weathering the stay in place order ok, and hope to see you on the other side of this crisis. We can’t wait to get back to our great friends and winery travels. Until than , Cheers! #ncwine #ncwino #wyntrvlr ✌🏻❤️😊🍷
