JUNE PICKS OF THE MONTH FROM ALIGRA WINE & SPIRITS!

Each month, Alison Philips, co-owner of Aligra Wine & Spirits, and her team will provide us with some tasty suggestions!  Many of you will remember Alison as one of our, our Friends of WSAC partners and the wonderful host of our wine tasting events here at our centre that were held in 2020.

 

CO-OWNER ALISON’S PICK: Giusti Sparkling Wine, Italy

Tasting Notes: I love Bubbles! This Italian gem from Giusti vineyards is a delightful sparkler – not exactly a Prosecco as it’s made with the Glera grapes and a touch of Muscat. It’s lively, bright, refreshing with citrus and notes of peach and passionfruit. At the prices we’re offering right now, it’s one to keep by the case this summer!

 

STAFF MEMBER Devin’s Pick: A MAVAM MAGIC, Spain

Tasting Notes: With magic you create your wildest dreams, set your goals and then toast on them when you achieve them. MAVAM Magic is a soft, sweet wine with hints of mint and balsamic vinegar for the true connoisseur.

 

STAFF MEMBER Derek’s Pick: Chateau Ste Michelle Rose, USA

Tasting Notes: This patio sipper from Columbia Valley in Washington is a blend of Syrah and Merlot. Bubblegum aromas are out front, followed by cherry and strawberry notes that also fill the palate. Kiwi flavors persist on the finish. Can be enjoyed alone or paired with charcuterie, a simple garden salad topped with salmon, soft cheeses or lightly spiced chicken. Priced on sale now for a limited time but originally $23.99, this is a bonus buy for summer outings.
