    Give It A Shot - Trader Joe's Espiral Vinho Rosé

    This episode brings us the latest installment in Keith’s attempt to find a rose wine that Andrew will truly enjoy. It was actually recommended by a Trader Joe’s regular who really knows what he is talking about when he is talking about wine. Another cool thing about this wine is that we have already had something from this winery that we enjoyed. The beverage we will be trying is the Espiral Vinho Rose, from Portugal. Like the Vinho Verde which we referenced before, it has a slight effervescence when you first pour it that quickly dissipates. What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch. 

    If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    Give It A Shot - 2017 Espiral Vinho Verde

    You may have noticed that we did not put out any podcasts last week. At least we hope you noticed. That means that you are following us and that hopefully you are enjoying what we are doing. We took a one week hiatus so that we could cull together some great ideas for future shows and we came up with several! After much discussion, we settled on a winner. As for the other ideas, don’t worry, they will make an appearance in future weeks. The topic we decided on for this weeks shows was “Wines Andrew Has Not Heard Of.” The title doesn’t exactly roll off of the tongue but it is pretty straight forward. The wine featured on this show is the Espiral Vinho Verde. Literally translated as “Green Wine,” the title actually refers to a specific area in Portugal where several types of grape varietals are grown to make this wine.  What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch. 

    (Full Disclosure: We realized while editing the video that we actually have done this wine on a podcast before, but that was in 2009 and it is only available on audio so that doesn’t count.)

    If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.

    AboutBeverages.com Podcast: Give It A Shot - Summer White Wines Part 2

    It is time once again for our "Give It A Shot" podcast where we share with you, our valued listener, something we discovered that needs to be shared immediately.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" please don't hesitate to contact us.  If you want to bend our ear you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com  or have a seat at The Round Table and start a discussion in our forums.  Summer White Wine Week comes to a close here on the podcast today and in an effort to keep everything in balance we will be trying two white wines once again.  The first will be the Espiral Vinho Verde which is a low-alcohol, slightly sparkling wine from the northwestern part of Portugal.  The second, is the 2009 Coppola Diamond Collection Chardonnay.  We were two for two with our wines on Monday so hopefully today will be more of the same.
