John takes us on a tour of Walla Walla, visiting some of his favourite spots and chatting about the Wine Industry’s huge effect on the town’s revival.
John took a trip to Washington and Northern Oregon last month to have a look at some interesting vineyards and wineries; this will be the first of a few videos showing his trip around the area.
John and Alessandro Lonardi, the Ambassador and Export Manager from Ornellaia sits down to taste some wines and have a chat! Apologies for the sound quality – it was extremely noisy in the store and we had to make some tweaks to quieten David’s booming voice down!
John chats to Filippo Antonelli, head winemaker at Antonelli San Marco, and tastes some of their amazing wines that we’re going to be getting in soon at Marquis Wine Cellars.
John cracks open the School House Mescolanza Zinfandel. This venerable (some of the vines are well over 100 years old) mixed black field-blend derives its character from mountain-grown varieties: Zinfandel (76%), Petite Sirah (17%) and Carignan (7%).
John tastes some amazing Palacia de Fefiñanes Albariño and talks a bit about some great new Burgundy from Domaine Guillemot Michel, their 2012 Vire-Clesse.
