Busy day getting in touch with area wineries
I spent the majority of my day researching wines and spirits as well as getting in touch with area wineries. I briefly explained to them my new assignment and its over all objective as well as giving them a breakdown of my taste.
I then asked them to suggest three of their bottles which they thought would best suit someone new to wines and spirits, as well as my taste.
There are three wineries nearby. I don't plan on going to any wine tastings just yet. Before all is said and done I will do that, but for right now it's more of a learning experience and I don't want anyone's opinion to affect my reviews.
There are a few local stores as well I want to visit... it will be great for getting to know the owners and taking photos for my articles.
People are already sending me suggestion to try and I'm writing them all down. Decided to take it another step with matching the suggested bottle with the right crackers and cheese. I think I'm really going to like this assignment as I'm even diving into the health benefits of wines and spirits.
