LOVE this wine! A grape (Arneis) I was not at all familiar with until a recent trip into NYC. I met up with one of my dearest friends for a glass of wine in Rockefeller Center at Morrell Wine Bar and amongst the many fabulous pages of interesting wines I picked out this one (I love trying new varietals from various regions all over the world). It is perfect for sipping on the deck or with food fresh off the grill you will love it. A must try!
winemaker's tasting notes:
This 100% Arneis blend is aged for 6 months and has a pale gold color with a tropical fruit, pear and apple aroma. A crisp and slightly effervescent palate with good body and ripe tropical, apple and pear fruit concentration.
This wine is made solely from the Arneis grape, which is indigenous to Piemonte. The grape is notoriously difficult to grow, hence the name, which means "the difficult one" in Piemontese dialect. It had fallen out of favor, and was nearly extinct when the Ceretto family began its renaissance in the mid eighties with the development of the Blange estate in the Langhe. This is composed of holdings near Vezza d'Alba and Castellinaldo facing south, southeast and southwest.

I have been searching and searching for the perfect yellow shoe to wear when working events. Last year my patent leather ones from J.Crew took a real beating. I still refuse to retire them but they are starting to look a little sad. This year I have set out to find a pair that is fabulously cute, not a flat (cause I just feel too frumpy), but comfortable enough to wear for 10 hours straight of being on my feet. I have yet to test out the 10 hour requirement but so far these are at the top of my list for a summer must have. And even better for every pair of Toms shoes purchased they will give a pair of new shoes to a child in need.
p.s. If you are thinking of getting a pair don't wait. They are already sold out on the Toms website in the most popular sizes, I luckily discovered Adrenalinesurfandskate.com
