how was your day? I tell you how I finished mine: with a wine-tasting experience! A good friend of mine, invited me to a wine cellar, or to a restaurant that organized a wine tasting experience, with different varieties from … Greece!
You might say, wait a second here, with all this French wine of excellent quality, why bother?
Because we always look for new experiences in life! Isn’t this enough?
So I accepted the invitation to the “cave Mavromatis“, at the 5th arrondissement, and found myself tasting red and white wine from different regions, as well as some interesting “petit fours salés”, or “meze” with cheese, olives and spinach 🙂
My favorite, wines from Nemea, from the Skouras wine house (http://www.wine-searcher.com/find/skouras+grand+cuvee+peloponnese+nemea+greece); why? because there was something I found original, compared to French wines and easy to drink; but I am far from being an expert; but there was an expert around who also liked it and could say everything about the way it was made and all the flavors you could find…
Probably the best wine is the one we drink in good company, reminding us of gathering around the table with dear ones 🙂
