It was a pleasure to take footage at this awesome Italian Wine Tasting Event. What a great deal!! Not only was the tasting very reasonable, but there was so much information given by very knowledgeable people, and some great deals on wine too! If you are ever in Tribeca, I definitely recommend checking this store out… they have some really interesting wines!

    Hey man, speaking of wine tastigns, Adrienne and I are going to a wine tasting while we’re on vacation in Mexico! I’ll definitely let you know how we – the novices – do!

    Sorry I haven’t brought my findings back lol.

    Anyway, we tried 2 wines, the first being Vionta from Spain (2008). It’s made with Albarino grapes…it was kind of sweet, not bad a t all. The second was Pomodolce from Italy (2004); have you ever heard of it? I don’t remember what grapes were used, but it was a red wine. It wasn’t as dry as I usually find red wines, but I wasn’t a huge fan.

    One question I always wanted to ask was the deal with the cork. I’ve seen people just look at the cork while others smell it; the guy doing the wine tasting explained it, but he had a very heavy accent. Do you look at and smell the cork, or do people not know what they’re doing? As said in sports radio, thanks; I’ll hang up and listen to your answer.

    Thanks Darrin, good question! First, I haven’t had either of those wines, so I’m not sure, but I think the Pomodolce may be Sangiovese, or it could be a blend. I like Albarino, never had one that was sweet, but that’s cool.

    About the cork, people smell it to see if the wine is “corked” which is a bacterial fault in the wine caused by bad cork. Sometimes it can be strong, and sometimes it can be subtle. If it is really “corked” then you will smell a musty wet basement kind of smell… that’s not good, and you should send it back. Sometimes you can tell by smelling the cork, but sometimes you have to pour a glass to smell it.

    I hope that helps! Thanks for your questions! Keep them coming…
