Le vin d’Algérie ? Mais de quoi qui’m’parle celui-là ? La Cuvée du Président, évidemment ! C’est un vin plein de légendes, qui amène forcément des clameurs !
Pourquoi ⁉️ Parce que c’est à peu près le seul vin algérien qui existe encore aujourd’hui.
Il accompagnera bien un couscous entre amis.
Les pays d’Afrique du Nord sont probablement le dernier endroit sur notre planète où on ne produit pas encore / plus de très grands vins. Pourtant tout y est : les sols, les conditions climatiques, les vignes... mais pas simple avec les contextes politico-religieux.
I had some Algerian wine last night! Yes you read that right. La Cuvée du Président. It’s a wine accompanied with legends, myths and clamor! Mostly because it’s one of the only Algerian wines left.
North Africa is probably the last region in the world not to produce top-notch wines, although every element is there: climate, soil, vines etc. But the political-religious context is not propitious.
Our new wine list has arrived ! Here is already some of our new little treasures 😍
We’ve been carefully selected our wines to showcase the quality and breadth of famous vineyards can offer.
However, we have also included a few interlopers from the more classical wine producing regions around the world to compare against. The majority of the wine on our list come from either organic or biodynamic farming principles which compliment the fresh and seasonal food on our menu.
Come in and enjoy the list and don’t be afraid to step outside the box with your selection. 🤗
Hey y’all! It’s #texaswinemonth and we have not been drinking Texas wine everyday 😏, sorry y’all! I’m (Cheramie) studying for WSET certification, so I’ve gotta learn the world o’wine.
P.S. I won’t let Texas Wine Month pass without giving y’all some good stuff!
Now that’s over, let’s talk about who we finally got to meet...Bruce and Rhonda Prothro of @prothro_family_wines! They are Texans who are making some killer California Wine. The Prothro’s have been making ultra premium wine for 25 years and I must say it shows in their delicious wine. Remember when I said I really hadn’t found a Chardonnay that I like? Welp, add @prothro_family_wines Chardonnay to the list of oh heck yes. You get to actually taste what the wine is doing, although oaked, it’s not over powering. With notes of citrus and green apple 🤤, this Chardonnay will make you change your mind in the best possible way!
Y’all I poured a South African Chardonnay from Hamilton Russell Vineyards and my eyes and taste buds have been open! My cards out on the table...I haven’t found a Chardonnay that’s I truly enjoy. But this Hamilton Russell Vineyards Chardonnay has changed that. You get pear and lime with the aroma and flavor and although aged in oak, this wine is not a butter bomb. •••
This is a great dinner party wine, when you want to be a little different. Looks like you can get it at Total Wine and More for $29.99.
