MUSINGS & TASTINGS
We’re blessed to live in a region with an abundance of seafood. From locally caught salmon, halibut, or tuna, to freshly caught Dungeoness crab, spot prawns, oysters, or clams, we seem to have it all. Okay, so maybe we don’t have fresh lobster, but we can buy them. And what’s better than fresh seafood? Fresh seafood with the right wine pairing!
There is a still-growing interest (and frequent misconception) regarding wines that are called “natural”. I put this in quotations because there is still no agreed upon definition of “natural wines”, though France recently came up with an initial qualification, and many agencies that promote or govern the certifications have their own constitutional definition.
Taking on the task of building a new website and a first ever Tacoma Wine Merchants online store led to many late nights. I will not complain about spending the extra time with my partner (and husband), however, neither Rob nor I knew what we were getting ourselves into….we soon found out!
The Piedmont region in Northwest Italy is known for its incredible cuisine, and some of the world’s best wines. We had a chance to travel to the region in October 2019, and had an unforgettable time with producers of some of our favorite wines, who kindly spent time with us during harvest!
