Wine Stories Worth Sharing – February 1, 2018

February 1st, 2018

Kristen Bell asks kids how much their mothers like wine and we ask whether there’s a new movement among Zinfandel producers. Also, unsung heroes in Italy and unexpected rosé in the Middle East.


Might be time to reconsider what Zins you’re stocking, if any. Is there a move afoot away from the high-alcohol, highly extracted wines of recent memory?

Or there’s Italy, where we have great values from Italian cooperatives as well as a dozen unsung heroes of Italian wine.

If that’s not far enough off the beaten path, there are these monks making rosé in Lebanon.

Finally, and just for fun, we have the irrepressibly upbeat Kristen Bell talking to kids about how much their mothers like wine, among other things.
