Italian Pinot Noir

I’ll admit Pinot Noir is not the first grape that comes to mind when I think of Italian wine, but I enjoyed two recently that were such an incredible value I had to share. I purchased both of the bottles at Costco for a ridiculously cheap price -one was $7.49 and the other was $12.69….

For the Love of Franciacorta

Franciacorta is the luxurious, beguiling, somewhat rare sparkling wine from Italy’s region of the same name. I’ve been fangirl-ing hard ever since my first sip and when I recently had an opportunity to attend a Franciaorta and caviar class, well, no one had to ask me to twice.
