We’ve never met a wine from Morgan Lee that we didn’t like. Or love. From Two Vintners Wines to Covington Cellars to his Full Pull partnership with Block Wines, Morgan Lee makes amazing wine. His array of wines is so large that we decided to focus on just a few that we have enjoyed recently – a Grenache Blanc, two Syrahs and a Syrah-Cab Sauvignon blend from Two Vintners, and a value red from Covington. Read on for details.
Summer time means it’s grilling season! So bring out the glasses and fire up the BBQ. To complement ribs, juicy hamburgers or steaks, here are some rich reds that we’ve tasted recently from Washington, Oregon and California. In addition, don’t forget the reds that pair so well with salmon, halibut or swordfish barbecued on cedar planks.
With the warm days easing into summer heat, an array of white wines have caught our attention. Overall, these are super summer sippers to pair with your patio or deck, poolside or lakeside. They also complement fish, crab, scallops, oysters, shrimp, prawns, sushi or a tasty summer salad.
Until recently, our palates preferred Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris/Grigio. However, this year we discovered beautiful wines ranging from the unusual white Cabernet Franc (Blanc Franc) to the wallet-friendly Turbiana grape from Lugana, Italy.
Most importantly, there are so many wonderful wines to explore this summer. For example, here are some that we have tasted from Washington state, Oregon, British Columbia, Italy, France, Iberia and New Zealand.
Many people we know are enjoying wine from the safety and comfort of home by ordering bottles online, utilizing curbside pickup services and participating in creative winery promotions during COVID-19.
We too are supporting wineries during these tough times. Here are some bottles we have poured (so far) in April.
What’s in Our Glasses Lately?
In April, our wine picks included whites, rosé and reds from Washington State and Spain. Some were wallet-friendly, while some were for special occasions – for example, our wedding anniversary and my birthday. And we enjoyed every single pour.
