T.G.I.F. ~ Thank God It's FRIULI
Today, while still on the Left Coast, we’ve just been to Wine Expo in Santa Monica, where the latest wines from Josko Gravner of Friuli have just been released to the public.
We have been lucky to secure a bottle of the Breg, which was my choice several days ago, to go with shark.
Gravner has been written about in so many places lately, suffice it to say, the wine was exceptional. We had it with a Williams-Selyem Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard , which was a treat for this Sangiovese head.
Over a meal in the Hollywood Hills, we sampled these wines with a wonderful plate of duck. My vacation is nearly finished. Today is Friday and it has been surrounded by Saturdays on both sides, part of the vacation space. A little more body surfing sans sharks.
