wine wednesday: pronunciation

PICK OF THE WEEK: 2014 “Acra Nova Vihno Verde” @ $10. Available in store at Silver Lake Wine or online via various outlets

Perfect for:

  • hot weather
  • grilled fish/seafood
  • people who like dry, light whites
  • those who like white wine spritzers
  • folks who are willing to give sparkling another go (I know, you might have had a night of celebrating that swore you off bubbly, this is only “slightly bubbly”)
  • porches, beaches, lounging by the pool (give me a big floppy hat and a straw please!!)
