Thankfully, spring quarter is drawing to a close.
I meant to participate in Wine Blogging Wednesday #34 this month, but wine tasting got short shrift when finals rolled around! Instead, another wine tasting has taken precedence. My fellow grad student has assigned regions of Bordeaux and mine is Pessac-Leognan which turns out to be tough homework. The salesperson at Corti Brothers recommended changing to something like St. Julien or Pauillac. I didn’t find a wine, but investigated what else Corti Brothers had to offer and found items from the wish list I’ve been keeping track of in the back of my mind — chestnut honey from Italy and Clear Creek eau-de-vie from Portland. I’m a very happy girl now. By the way, Kettle Chips has a Tuscan Three Cheese flavor as well! And did you know that Bumblebee has a Thai spice version of their tuna and crackers product? Yeah, Corti Brothers is going to be on the regular shopping circuit now.
