Four Iconic Wines
As legend has it - there are four ionic wines you should focus on finding when you are in England.
"This week we’re going to check in on some of the classics. There are those wineries that are so synonymous with a grape variety or blend that casual wine fans could be forgiven for thinking that the wine style is part of the winery’s actual name—“Antinori Chianti” and such.
Over the years, these wines become the stuff of legend and so consistent that it can become easy for many of us, myself included, to neglect them in favour of whatever is new and exciting. Let’s take a look at the most current vintage of four icons, practically catching up with old friends, to see how they’re doing."
