What We’ve Been Drinking: May 2016

What We’ve Been Drinking: May 2016

Summer is almost upon us and the North Carolina wine has never tasted better! May was warm and our selections were a bit heavier on the whites and rosés. But still, each bottle showed what NC can produce and how it really is an exciting place to be for new wines.

What We’ve Been Drinking: April 2016

What We’ve Been Drinking: April 2016

Where has the time gone! As we were preparing the What We’ve Been Drinking for May, we realized we never posted April’s recap.  April was quite the month. We had a good sampling from around the state. Also worth mentioning, we had the opportunity to travel out to the Upper Hiwassee Highlands AVA out near Murphy, NC.

What We’ve Been Drinking: March 2016

What We’ve Been Drinking: March 2016

It’s hard to believe how fast the months go by. March brought with it warmer weather and the beginning of spring. Many of the grapes in the vineyards have already seen bud break and are well on their way to getting ready for their prime growing season.

During March we drank a bit of North Carolina Wine (26 bottles according to our Instagram).  Some notable wines included our first wine of the 2015 vintage, the Barrel Chardonnay from Hanover Park, and the new 2014 Grenache from Junius Lindsay.  Both were exceptional when we tasted them.  We know that these will only improve over time and can’t wait for more!

Check out our feed below for more details on what we had.  Cheers!

What We’ve Been Drinking: February 2016

What We’ve Been Drinking: February 2016

Another month has come and gone. Even though we got a late start to the month, we still ended up with 11 North Carolina wines! This February marked the first time we participated in Open That Bottle Night! We also had the opportunity to pour three wines for Hanover Park at the Shoppes at Home, Heart and Soul.

We look forward to March and hope it brings with it more NC Wine. Click on the pictures below for more details on our month in wine.

What We’ve Been Drinking: January 2016

What We’ve Been Drinking: January 2016

It’s hard to believe that we’re already one month in to 2016!  So far this month, we’ve posted about 16 wines from across the state.  Also worth noting was the North Carolina Winegrowers Conference that took place January 22, 23, and 24.  This annual meeting of wineries, vineyards, and wine fans  in Winston-Salem is a great opportunity to talk wine with the experts. This year we actually had the opportunity to lead a session on how wineries can make the most of their social media outlets. It was a lot of fun and we can’t wait until next year.

Back to the wine. Our January wine summaries are found below. Click on a picture to expand and read more about the wine.

A quick note: We have taken a short break this past week that will continue into the early part of next week. Never fear, we’ll get to posting soon and will have a great recap when the month is over.
