At my hacienda there seems to be loads of entertaining going on this summer. An abundance of lighter foods going on my grill. So on the hunt for a terrific value Pinot Noir. I come across the Vina San Pedro 2012 Leyda Reserva Pinot Noir from Chile.
Coming from the Leyda Valley appellation which has quite the reputation for incredible value wines. This Pinot Noir delivers big time. On the nose bold red fruit and a hint of tobacco, while on the palate fresh berries and good acidity and gentle tannins everyone seems to love this everyday wine. All for $12.50 here locally, you can’t go wrong.
On this show The Wine Ladies explore the country of Peru and its capital Lima, regarded as one of the gastronomic capitals of the world. From the huge bio diversity of the landscape including the coastal region, the Andean region and the Amazon comes an incredible fusion cuisine. You’ll also discover Pisco, Peru’s national drink, a grape spirit, a wonderful elixir that is made with grapes from vast, green vineyards that flourish in the heart of the arid deserts of Peru. This traditional spirit dates back hundreds of years and is the new rising star at the bar! Pisco Sour anyone? Peru a land of gastronomy, spectacular landscape, incredible people and of course Machu Picchu!
