Fix.com Grilling and Grapes

With warmer weather finally upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, my latest for Fix.com (“Grilling and Grapes“) focuses on what wine grapes to keep in mind when you’re firing up the grill.

Wine-and-seasonal-food-stuff-pairing articles are nearly as annoyingly omnipresent as drink-rose-in-the-Springtime articles these days, but because this is my writing that we’re talking about here, you know that I snuck in some slightly off-the-well-trodden-path options.

As always, the Fix.com folks have provided appealing, immediately-digestible visual awesomeness that far exceeds what my words are able to achieve (see below for kick-ass evidence).

Get thee to the wine shop, and then get thee to thy grill!

Cheers!

Fix.com Italian Red Grapes

In what will come as a surprise to no one, Fix.com has published the companion piece to my Italian White Wine Grapes article, The Grapes Behind Italian Red Wines.

That one definitely fits right into the saw-it-coming-from-a-mile-away-bro category.

Having said that, I think that the geeky among you will be pleasantly surprised by my grape picks from central Italy on down. And can we get a major shout-out to the Fix.com graphics team here? I mean, they did a killer job of representing the different grapes and their flavors (check out what the did for minerality… just… awesome).

The full infographic is embedded below for your enjoyment, but you’ll need to head on over to Fix.com for the full text.

Cheers!…

I Have Hate, But I Still Love (Italian White Wine Grapes For Fix.com)

Vinted on May 12, 2016 binned in going pro, Italian Wine

As I’m recovering from mouth surgery, I am currently into my second consecutive week without a sip of vino. This scenario has created something angry and sinister very deep inside my psyche; the type of thing that is best left in its evil slumber and not forced upon the fragile, gossamer-like veil that separates what we know of as civilized society from its dark, savage underbelly.

Bronson

So, yeah, I have some hate happening.

As a result, I am waaaaaay behind on writing up my recent wine travels, finishing up my paying gigs, tasting through samples, and what-have-you.

Despite the angry railing against the heavens, I did manage to pen a little love letter to some of my favorite Italian white wine grapes for Fix.com, titled The Grapes Behind Italian White Wines. Long-time 1WD readers will not be surprised to find Fiano and Carricante on that list. The full-on infographic format of the article is embedded below after the jump, but the curious among you will want to head over to Fix.com for the Full Monty on the article, which contains some geek-tastic bits of history and trivia about the grapes, and about Italian wine in general.

Enjoy!…
