Wine School - Session #6: Island White
There are a lot of great things to be said about the islands of the Mediterranean. Greece, Corsica, Sicily, Sardegna, and the Canary Islands are all bucket list spots to visit and for good reason. The water is crystal clear, full of yachts, stocked with the best seafood, and of course the beautiful people. However, unlike the other vacation spots you drool over on Instagram, these islands also have great wine. Unlike almost everything else you’ll encounter in this part of the world, there is also exceptional value with the wines. That means, you’re getting a deal while you’re drinking and we like everything about that. There are unique differences between the wines on each of the islands and that’s mostly attributed to there being different grapes which have been planted there long before humans were wearing bikinis. We think there are more commonalities or not so it’s safe to say that all of these wines are best when they are white, crisp, salty, never oaky, and should be served cold. Today, we think the best producers are coming out of Sicily, Greece, and Corsica.
