A half bottle of Brachetto d’Aqui (from Bologna). 5.5% frizzante so no problems with the booze buses (roadside alcohol testing) for him

Goes superbly with the cacciatore.

And the cheeses - a sheep’s milk caciovavallo from Sicily and an unpasteurised English cheddar

With Parmesan and sesame “bark”

Attended my 1st wine dinner in over six months due to family commitments and health issues
It was a great night.
Table of ten
It would be remiss not to mention that we had a new member to the group.
Not an uncommon occurence , except that she is the first FEMALE member in over 20 years
Stemmed the usually blokey jokes and comments.
All went well until she started an argument over use of gender and non-binary pronouns eg he, she, it, etc :rolleyes:

Hope she comes along to the next dinner
We need a breath of fresh air.
As long as it is not WOKE rotf

Evening, all. Having a little tasting this evening and getting things kicked off with 2XO The Innkeepers Blend. It is the second release by Dixon Dedman, of Kentucky Owl fame, and is what we should have experienced on the first release. Rich, oily, buttery and so balanced and well rounded. Hoping they just continue to get better with each release.

Cheers!
