Trust your importer: European Cellars

Dear Feastlings,

It happens in our shop every day: the creased brow, the rolling of the bottle in one’s hands, the internal debate: “I have no idea what this wine tastes like, but it looks interesting.  Should I spend my hard-earned cash on it?”

While there’s no way to be familiar with every bottle you pick up, there’s a chance that you can glean a clue from the front label- you know what the general vibe is in the Rhône, for example, or Paso Robles.  But we like to periodically remind you that you can also learn a little something from the back label.  As you broaden your wine horizons, a glance at the back label can tell you that you’ve got a bottle from an importer you trust, who’s provided you in the past with quality for the price, and whom you can feel comfortable trusting again.

This Saturday, we’ll taste four wines imported by European Cellars with our buddy Lee Moffitt, all of which, it happens, hail from Roussillon, that toasty spot shoehorned in between Languedoc and the Spanish border.  If you’re a Rhône fan or a Languedoc fan, it’s more than likely you’ll be a Roussillon fan as well.  We’ll taste them this Saturday, February 25, at 2:00, it’ll cost a mere $15 plus tax and tip, and you’re bound to get some good information out of it as well as a couple of new favorite wines.
