5 Unique Wine Grapes to Focus on this Fall
Breaking out of the routine with some exciting options for Autumn.
Valdiguié is absolutely a fringe grape, one adored by geeks for both it’s rarity and unique character. Geeks, being notoriously fickle and easily bored tend to move on from wines year to year, which is a shame because it often takes several years of geek promotion before a wine truly hits the mainstream. Case in point Mencia; a wine of the moment several years ago and a wine that I see with decreasing frequency at geek get-togethers today. That is a terrible thing because fine Mencia makes for a brilliant wine; medium bodied and bright with a fine balance of crisp dark fruit and decisive minerality.
