Over here I thought I’d share with you the wines and beer I tasted because they were PHENOMENAL! Take whatever you think of reds, whites and ciders and just chuck ’em out the window (right in the humid, gross mess that is DC right now).
Ruche was a really delicious, light tasting red. It wasn’t heavy in your mouth or leave your tongue feeling velvety at all. It’s a red I could actually drink throughout a hot summer and not feel that blagh, gross feeling you sometimes get when drinking reds in the sun.
Les Rials was a super sweet smelling wine that turned out to be a not-so-sweet white with tropical notes (or so Dominique told me, to which I said, “mmhhhmm, oh yes! I can taste that!”). The name has a really cool meaning and story to go along with it. Ask Dominique, he’ll tell you and you’ll fall for the swoon-worthy French accent and his super approachable way of talking about wine.
Finally, I had a beer, that is, if you mean alcoholic apple juice :) This was tasty, but quite sweet and a far cry from your Hornsby or Woodchuck. But still, cider-lovers, you’ll delight in this refreshing and crisp libation.
Visit Cork and Fork this Saturday to give them a strong start and a hearty “Welcome!” to the neighborhood. I think you’ll fall for them as much as I did.
