wine list wednesday

April 20, 2011

all of the fresh spring vegetable are bursting from the farmer’s market – snow peas, mint, pea tendrils and lots of lemons – and so a crisp bright wines was most certainly the only option – 

Terra Robles made by the Robert Hall vineyard. 
its bright on the tongue – perhaps just a hair too acidic, but has nice citrus, grapefruit and pairs nicely with food. what i particularly liked about the terra robles is the lovely mouthful of orange blossom and honey – quite unexpected but very welcome – 
delightfully priced at 9$
pair with fresh pea and mint risotto. 

inspired by white

I first saw this space in the pages of housebeautiful – i find everything about this light, airy and bright space to be inspiring! love the way all of the white plays off the honey colored floors!
