Last Monday I held a Sparkling Wines of the World seminar over Zoom. It seems to be the thing these days for get-togethers. I wasn’t sure how many people, if any would even show up. When I go in front of people, I tend to get a little nervous. Nervous I am going to leave something out, but if you run into me on the street, I’ll vomit at the mouth with information. I guess the more I do these the more I won’t get nervous. Here are the video and audio of the seminar. It is an introductory seminar discussing many of the different sparkling wines around the world and how they are made....

This month of February on Winephabet Street Lori and I explored Egri Bikaver, better known as Bulls Blood. Egri Bikaver is from Hungary and better known as Bulls Blood. It is not a grape but a blend of 50% Kekfrankos (which we know as Blaufrankish or Lemberger) and the rest can be Kadarka, Syrah, Merlot, Portugieser, Minoir, Blauburger, Pinot Noir, Zweigelt or Turan.

Welcome to Winephabet Street Season 2 Episode 7 - G is for Glera. Winephabet Street is a monthly series where Lori Budd of Draceana Wines and I work our way through the alphabet exploring wine and wine regions one letter at a time. The show is live on the third Monday at 8pm and is free, but you must register to attend. Put it on your calendar, pour yourself a glass of wine and hang out with us.

 

The month of April we talked about the Glera grape. Glera is the grape in Prosecco. It is thought to have originated in Slovenia’s Karst region and brought to the village of Prosecco.

Prosecco was used to indicate a wine as well as both a production area and grape variety. In 2009 to identify Prosecco as a designation of origin the name couldn’t represent the grape and region. Glera was chosen as the grape of Prosecco.

This month's wine selection was Jeio Bisol 1542 Prosecco. Jeio is a love story. Jeio is the name Giovanna Bisol called her husband.

The vineyards are on top of steep hills in the Veneto region. The wine was fermented in stainless steel for 15 days. Made in the Charmat method.

The Prosecco is very elegant. Aromas of green apple and wisteria. The palate is soft and elegant with a slight creaminess to it. Flavors of green apple, pear with a citrus peel finish. The price point on the Prosecco is $20.

 

Hope you enjoy the podcast!
