    Hey Sean,
    I work at the restaurant Winberie’s in Summit. You came in with some samples for Doreen, and I asked for your blog. Finally checked it out today, there’s some interesting stuff in here! I’m interested in trying the octavin big house white, given that boxed wine is usually not my favorite. But hey, if it’s good, why not give it a try? Your discussion about corks vs. synthetic corks and twist offs caught my eye because of the highly accepted idea that synthetics and caps are a no-no.
    I’m also interested in trying the carpineto dogajolo white, because I don’t know many good whites besides pinot grigio. In fact, I didn’t even know what tannins were until I read your blog- I’m clearly a noob!
    Anyway I’ll be trying a few of your selections- just wanted to say thanks for the insight!

      Christy, Thank you for your feedback! It makes me very happy to know that I am actually teaching something… that’s kinda why I started doing this in the first place… I don’t know much about the Carpentino, but I can say that if you are interested in trying other styles, I’d be happy to help ease you into some good whites, check out the Maslow 6 Part 1 video on Italian White wines… there were some good ones there… and of course, if we can get my Semillon into Winberies, you’ll have that to try too 😉 Cheers! Keep commenting and asking questions!!!
