Try These Three Trendy New Wines For National Wine Day
Even if you're not a wine drinker, these three wines will give you plenty of reasons to celebrate.
Casey and Christine from Di'Vine Wine Bar in Wappingers Falls stopped by to introduce us to some of the more popular wines they have been serving to their customers. DiVine opened last year, and since then they've been getting rave reviews from both wine aficionados and newbies looking to explore the world of wine.
The duo first showed us a bottle of Martinsancho Verdejo, a white wine that's similar to a Sauvignon Blanc. The Spanish wine has aromas of honeysuckle and has a slightly salty finish, which comes from the minerals used to grow the Spanish grapes.
According to the Di'Vine Wine Bar crew, rosé wines are very trendy right now. One good example of popular rosé is Spätburgunder. This German wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes and has a slight effervescence to it. Christine described it as fruity up front and dry on the finish, something to sip on a hot day.
Finally, we sampled a blended wine called Conundrum. It's a big, California blend from the Wagner family in Napa Valley. Conundrum is made from what they believe are probably eight different grapes, but the actual number and types of grapes are a closely kept vineyard secret. The wine was our favorite of the bunch. It's full, structured and has some great "legs" as you can see in the video below.
