Tuscany has a wonderfully diverse variety of wines with Chianti, Brunello, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and the famous Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGTs) which work outside the classification system by including non-Italian varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon. Tuscany is also home to the dessert wine, Vin Santo, and white wines made from the Vernaccia grape. In contrast to Tuscany, Chile is seen as an up and coming region with good wines at reasonable prices. So long as there are enough recommended wines, we’ll do our best to feature a number of wines from both Tuscany and Chile with a few other interesting wines from the release thrown in to keep it interesting.
We encourage you to register early as all members signed up by Saturday, October 18, 2014, will be invited to suggest a few of their choices from the release. We will consider the requests as we make the final selection, particularly looking at popular items based on multiple responses along with any intriguing thematic suggestions.
The VPR is an opportunity to “try before you buy” a number of wines to be released by Vintages on the following Saturday. Taste some selected, expensive, highly reputed wines that might not cross your palate otherwise and also have the chance to discover wines offering exceptional price/quality ratios and affordable lesser-known premium quality products that are well-made bargains.
