June 29 – Pietra Santra Wine Dinner

Posted on

PIETRA-SANTA-WINERYA few months ago, I selected a Pietra Santa Merlot from my cellar.  It had probably been a few years since I had tasted a Pietra Santa red wine.   I had frequently consumed their Pinot Grigio – an outstanding starter that goes so well with a summer afternoon cookout – but had not visited their reds in quite some time! I was pleasantly amazed at the flavor and balance that the wine exhibited.  It was technically a perfect Merlot. I reached out to the sales person (who also happens to be my son) with a text telling him how much I was enjoying this Merlot.  His response was that the whole line was drinking terrific and that we should taste through all of their offerings and plan a Pietra Santa Wine Dinner!  So here we are!
