fine wine


wine glasses by TrilliumArtisans ~ via Pinotblogger ~ swedish birch sap wine ~ Trinity Hill vineyard

last night was a wine night. i started by opening a bottle of trinity hill montepulciano and i was very pleasantly surprised at how much i enjoyed it. next mission was to use up all the remnants of a few bottles of white wine in the fridge, so i decided to poach some apples. i added a little vanilla extract, cinnamon, honey and sugar and 20 minutes later it smelled like hot apple cider! after i scooped out the apples, i sipped on a bit of the hot wine concoction and it was also very delish - what an excellent way to use the last bits of leftover wine. lastly, i added a little bit of leftover merlot to the pasta sauce i was making for my penne dinner.

reuben and i have been discovering some great inexpensive wines lately. gotta love a wine country!
