Fall Tastings Beginning: A Time for New Wines

I'm always excited when I get the opportunity to try a new wine, whether it's trying a new grape varietal, or wines from a producer that I haven't experienced before. Although it's always a little bittersweet to see summertime slip into fall, I comfort myself each year with the reminder that ski season is coming, and that fall is wine tasting season. Starting in August, producers generally begin to release new vintages of their wines, and tasting events run aplenty as distributors and wine retailers look for opportunities to showcase these new wines.

I'm excited to be kicking off my fall tasting season tonight, as Burlington Wine Shop is hosting a tasting featuring the wines of Peju, along with small selection of close out wines. I haven't tasted Peju's wines before, as the wines only recently began to be distributed in Vermont. However, I'm looking forward to making a new discovery, and hopefully finding a wine or two among the selection of close out wines that I can enjoy as an everyday drinking wine for the fall.

I'll report back soon with tasting notes. Enjoy the weekend!
