Oh what a tasty bubbly!

I recently had the pleasure of attending a dinner with a winemaker from the Santa Giustina winery in Italy. She was a wonderful young lady with a true passion for the work her family does and the art of winemaking.

The first wine that was brought out was the Ortrugo. This is a sparkling white that is somewhere between dry and sweet with a bouquet and flavor of green apples. We tend to drink this anytime we want a change from the Shiraz we normally drink.

A real treat with this wine was a cheddar with lemon zest in it. Imagine eating a slice of lemon zest cheesecake and drinking this wonderful wine. Ohh, so good.

If you can get a bottle of this wine then do yourself a favor and pick up a couple, it will be well worth your time.
