Notes from Henry’s Wine Cellar

Notes from the Cellar

Hello to you all,

Finally, it really feels like spring out there. I hope you all had nice holidays and I really think a whole lot of healing happened for Bostonians with the Marathon and all the great events that have gone on related to that tragic day, let’s move forward with joy in our hearts and Wine and Beer in our belly:)On to the Wine, Cristin Connors of Cafe Europa will be here to conduct our tasting on Saturday from 2:30-5:30pm. and though “Europa” is in the title of this company we will also be tasting somegood California and Washington state Wines as well.Thanks to Bob Huey from Cynthia Hurley Wine for this past Saturday’s tasting. The wines sold well and many of you had the chance to try wines you see in the C. Hurley newsletter every Thursday.

 Rose season is Upon us! I have 2013 Rose’s coming in all the time and some 2012’s that are good values and still very drinkable so don’t be afraid and jump in!
 
Don’t miss John’s Beer tasting this Thursday from 4-7pm featuringCape Ann Brewery from Gloucester; always a good time and great beer! Join us for dinner at the Wenham Tea House Friday & Saturday
Evenings from 5-9pm. Chef Peter Capalbo (Formerly of Tryst In Beverly) will be cooking up great food including his famous Rosemary Chicken entree and Lump Crab cake. With the bounty of ingredients from Henry’s Market along with fresh local fish this is by far the best thing happening for dinner north of Boston Friday Nights. It is a 3 course Prix Fix (Price Fixed) Dinner, with at least 5 choices on each course, plus a full liquor license and a custom wine list by you know who to make this a special experience. If you have joined us, come again, if you have not had the pleasure, do yourself a favor and come on down. Call the Wenham Tea House at 978-468-1398 and make a reservation now. 

Fun Wine Fact;

Sancerre is a French wine Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) for wine produced in the area of Sancerre in the eastern part of the Loire valley, southeast of Orléans. Almost all of the appellation lies on the left bank of the Loire, opposite Pouilly-Fumé. It is well regarded for and primarily associated with Sauvignon blanc. Some Pinot noir is also grown, accounting for around 20% of the region’s production, making mostly light red wines for quaffing under the designation of Sancerre Rouge. A rosé style from Pinot noir is also produced in a style similar to Beaujolais.

White Sancerre was one of the original AOCs awarded in 1936, with the same area being designated for red wines on 23 January 1959. The AOC area has expanded fourfold over the years, most recently on 18 March 1998. The town lies on an outcrop of the chalk that runs from the White cliffs of Dover down through the Champagne and Chablis. A series of small valleys cut through the chalk, each with their own soils and microclimate and terroir. In the east are the “flints” (also known as silex) that make minerally, long-lived wines. Between the town and Verdigny the soil consists of marl and gravel – “les caillottes” – producing fruity, well balanced wines. And in the southwest, away from the river towards Menetou-Salon, the chalky “terres blanches” (white ground) produce weightier wines. Most – but not all – of the Sauvignon Blanc’s are unoaked.

Salve a tutti!

As of right now I am in Italy eating and drinking in a professional manner:) I will arrive Friday Evening just in time for our annual Grand Spring Tasting this Saturday from 2:30 to 5:30pm. As is the usual case the wines will be reflective of the Easter/ Passover season and the launch of Spring then Summer and this tasting will be special because of who we have here. This will be the Smaller, Boutique Distributor/ Importers and will feature many small wineries, many that are Sustainable and Organic. We have almost50 wines to try along with 6 beers and a Sartori Cheese table. Below is a list of the featured wines/beers in the tasting this week section, hope to see you here!

John Strom has put together a solid pair of beer tastings for you this week! Thursday’s tasting will feature lagers from Jack’s Abby and on Saturday, Matt Hopkins will be sharing a selection of beers fromBerkshire Brewing Company . Unfortunately, John Strom will not be here on Saturday because of a family commitment.

And though it doesn’t feel like it Rose season is Upon us! I have 2013 Rose’s coming in all the time and some 2012’s that are good values and still very drinkable so don’t be afraid and jump in!

Fun Wine Fact;

Some farmers take additional steps beyond standard organic winemaking to apply sustainable farming practices. Examples include the use of composting and the cultivation of plants that attract insects that are beneficial to the health of the vines. Sustainable practices in these vineyards also extend to actions that have seemingly little or nothing to do with the production of grapes such as providing areas for wildlife to prevent animals from eating the grapes and allowing weeds and wildflowers to grow between the vines. Sustainable farmers may use bio-diesel for tractors in the vineyards to reduce emissions among the vines, or plough with horses.Wikipedia.com

Notes from the Cellar

Buogiorno!

I will be leaving for Italy this Friday for Vin Italy, the largest tasting of Italian Wine in the world but will be back in time for the following Saturday’s Grand Spring Tasting on April 12th. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it:)

Today is the April “Blind” Wine Club release and I know I’ve said this before but this bag is really fantastic. 2 whites and 2 reds that are very high quality. Some people buy it for the food pairing suggestions and many for the blind tasting to develop your palate and learn more about wine. Whatever the reason $50.00 for 4 bottles is a great deal not to be missed!

For this Saturday Nick Difazio will be here from Classic Wines and we’ve picked some great wines including Dow’s Tawny and Ruby Port.Check out what will be tasted below in the tasting this week section.

And though it doesn’t feel like it Rose season is Upon us! I have 2013 Rose’s coming in all the time and some 2012’s that are good values and still very drinkable so don’t be afraid and jump in!

John Strom will be conducting a Firestone-Walker Beer tasting onThursday from 4-7pm. Come on by for some Henry’s Pizza (available for take home purchase) and cheese to match.
 
Join us for dinner at the Wenham Tea House  Friday Evening from5-9pm.

Saturday Dinner will begin, same great menu and value as Friday night!

Fun Wine Fact;

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is a red wine with Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita status produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montepulciano, Tuscany, Italy. The wine is made primarily from the Sangiovese grape varietal (known locally as Prugnolo gentile) (minimum 70%), blended with Canaiolo Nero (10%-20%) and small amounts of other local varieties such as Mammolo. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 2 years; three years if it is a riserva. The wine should not be confused with Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, a red wine made from the Montepulciano grape in the Abruzzo region of east-central Italy.Wikipedia.com
