Kendall-Jackson Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay  is one hundred percent barrel-fermented Chardonnay with the richness one wants from California. Plenty of sunny fruit and lively freshness. Creamy and round with notes of buttered toast and tropical fruits. Try with char-grilled corn on the cob, or with grilled chicken.

Dear Wine Ladies

What is a wine thief?

Jason, Dallas, Texas

Watch The Wine Ladies TV and our adventure at Kendall-Jackson where we experienced wine thieving first hand!

 

Dear Jason,

It is a “pipette” a slim tube-like product made with glass or food-safe material, about between 12-24 inches long, used to draw a small amount of wine from a cask or other fermentation container.

Ask The Wine Ladies…

Dear Wine Ladies

Over the last little while it seems that Spanish wines seem to be popping up at various dinner parties and get together more and more. We really enjoyed one of our most recent white wine discoveries called  Viura (we think) which we were told was a Spanish wine that cost less than $15.00. Neither my boyfriend or I can remember where it came from in Spain and was wondering if this is the name of an area, a brand name or a town. Any additional info on this wine would be appreciated.
