Home for the Holidays 2021

Happy Holidays from all of us at Gismondi on Wine. If you haven't noticed, the GOW team has posted a lot of new tasting notes in the last 60 days. We will slow down over the next two weeks, but there will always be new notes and lots of content, including the wrap up to our Year in a Life of a BC Winegrower series, released on Christmas Day, with a look at late Fall and early Winter tasks at the wineries.  A few days after Christmas, we release a list of bubbles for NYE, and some cheese finds from Allison to pair with them.  If you missed it, we have two important features up, our annual Champagne and Sparkling Wine lists, Top Ten lists for Collectors, and Allison's tips on making the Perfect Cheese Platter.  As always, we thank everyone who supports us and allows us to do what we do best: putting the wines first. Stay safe, and we will catch up with you again in the New Year.

Perhaps folks are combatting Covid troubles with bubbles, and Champagne's price point certainly makes it a challenging regular consumption. But, more telling than that, we continually see new regions, grapes, and winemakers, pushing the trend forward, and as such, quality has risen on par with consumer interest...
