wines from unexpected places – from the wine virgin

Last Friday’s event was all about tasting wines from places where you normally wouldn’t expect to have wine. We had wines from all over the world, and even a delicious and very ‘unexpected’ boxed wine. We had wines from regions of the world where I wasn’t even sure if grapes grew. What made the event even more fun was that it was a blind tasting, so we had the chance to guess where the wines were from before they were revealed.

Some of the wines were incredible and it’s a shame that they are considered to be so unexpected. Everyone should have the opportunity to try some of the wines we sampled. What was interesting was that while I normally prefer red wines, there was a white that stood out last night above all the rest. Some of the areas we had wines from were Moldova, New Mexico, and Lebanon. Check back tomorrow as I start discussing some of the wines were discovered!
