Our company wine director for all our restaurants, and head distiller of Wildwood Spirits, Erik Liedholm, was recently featured in an article in The Wall Street Journal!
The article, “Easy-Drinking Summer Wines: What the Experts Sip,” by Lettie Teague tries to find you the best selection of summer wines that anyone can enjoy without putting too much of a dent in your pocket.
For you, Liedholm suggests the 2016 Elio Perrone Bigaro Rosé Piedmont from Italy, which is only about $18 per bottle.
Lettie writes: “Mr. Liedholm calls this rosé ‘the wine cooler of your youth but more refined.’ That’s a pretty fair description of this low-alcohol (5%) sparkling rosé, a blend of Moscato and Brachetto produced in the Piedmont region of Italy. Mr. Liedholm suggests pairing the sweet, but not too sweet, fizzy, cherry-red wine with spicy food, although I’d drink it as dessert or perhaps freeze it into popsicles instead.”
