  • Back to the Classics

    Even a quick scan of the web may leave you with the impression that the sole job of the wine blogger is to highlight lesser–known grape varieties, unexpected vineyard locations and surprising food and wine matches.

    But sometimes we need bring it back to the classics, and for me, Easter Sunday lunch is definitely one of these times. The traditional choice for the lunch is roast leg...

    Many of them will also list a Sherry among their top ten “desert island” wines.
