Since I was at a professional (read: non-wine) conference last week, I’m spending this week catching up with all sorts of things. Turns out, I was in a couple of our local weekly online publications. So yes, this blog post is all about me, but I hope it sends you to two new fun online magazines you need to be reading.
Cincy Chic: What’s the biggest misconception about wine?
Lentz: I think people are
often intimidated by wine. People forget that wine is a grape, and a
vineyard is a farm. Also, I think people need to trust their instincts
more. If you like it, then it is a good wine for you.
The residual sweetness of port
tends to balance better with chocolate than your average wine. The
chocolate’s sugar subdues the sweetness in the port, showcasing
flowers, fruit, and spice. Instead of giving you a sugar overload, the
port will taste drier in comparison to the chocolate. You’ll find
different types of port on the retail shelves this holiday season,
including ruby and tawny. Ruby ports are made in a classic style and
pair best with dark bittersweet chocolate. A tawny port is more blonde
in color and pairs better with milk chocolate, nutty chocolates, or
chocolates with a hint of spice.
So, a big thanks to all the fun and friendly female press out there! I had a great week and I wasn’t even here to appreciate it. Belated thanks! If you’re not reading Girlfriendology or Cincy Chic, it’s time to start. They’re both girl-oriented weekly magazines – free and online.
