Charlie’s Weekly Wine-ings
The weather here on at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast continues to be very hot. The air-conditioning is running full time and it has been too hot to have "wine patio". Our guests have been enjoying afternoon wine tasting in the cool dinning room and living room. The guests have liked the refreshing red Spanish blend, Borsao, that I mentioned a few blogs back. The white I been offering in this heat is a nice crisp California Sauvignon Blanc, SeaGlass.
I am holding a wonderful Cava, Segura Viudas Aria, that Cellar 55 introduced me to last year. Cava is sparkling wine from Spain. By tradition in the world, and by law in France, sparkling wine can only be called Champagne if it is produced in the delimited Champagne AOC region of France. Many other countries make great sparkling wine by other names: in Spain it is Cava and in Italy it is often called Prosecco.
I’ll always drink to a special occasion. We thank our friends form Spain for sharing this picture and their special time with us at our Sandwich Massachusetts Bed and Breakfast.
