About Me:
’m at the upper end of the so-called Millennial generation, old enough to have a decade of wine-drinking under my belt but young enough to know that wine is about three things: finding a great bottle at a good value, vicariously exploring the world, and having fun with friends.

In addition to Vinobite, I write for national magazines and websites like Wine Enthusiast and myrecipes.com, and I've passed the first level of sommelier certification and am studying for my certification in the fall.

Find me at www.vinobite.com, Twitter @vinobite, on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Vinobitecom/66837749423 and at www.gretchenroberts.net.

Most memorable experience around wine?
I've been at a lot of amazing wine events, but my favorite will always be the bottle of 2005 Fort Walla Walla Cellars Treaty, a red blend my dad picked up last summer. We sat out on the porch after the 90-degree day had cooled down to the 70s and sipped the wine and talked. That night proved to me that the company and the setting have everything to do with how good the experience is.

Hi Gretchen,

Portugal has many autochthones grape varieties, red and whites.
White varieties are very interesting, with very different characters, but SYRIA also called Códega do Larinho is fantastic, with citrons aromas of tangerine and orange.
Portugal Dão region has the most gastronomic wines: fresh, intense, elegant with very nice acidity, made with autochthonous grapes from very particularly varieties.
Just try.
I am a producer in Portuguese Dão region, and I suggest you to taste an old Dão.

Just see what Paul White Thinks about as:

“So far, Portugal has managed to remain true to its traditions, while at the same time offering up a huge range of distinctive grape varieties and unusual wine styles precisely when many of us are tiring of endless New World makeovers of French varietals.

Dao has a lot going for it in that respect: first rate grape varieties firmly rooted in granite-based ‘terroir’ that sparkles back like diamonds, all this shaped by a growing season that’s relatively gentler and longer than other Portuguese regions. Although relatively unknown and sometimes tricky to pronounce, Dao’s red wines offer consumers genuinely new and exciting tasting experiences.”

Visit please our web-site, for now it’s just in Portuguese, but to see photos you don’t need any translation: www.quintadaboavista.eu

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Gretchen! Thanks for connecting. Have you ever been to Wine Over Water in Chattanooga? I've heard it's an incredible event.

Kind regards,
Carine
