Yay or Nay: 2010 Villa Cerrina Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Williamsburg Winery, July 2011
Like most food lovers, we also love our wine. We certainly are not experts, but it occurred to us the other night that we are getting a bit snobbier about the wine we inbibe. Long ago are the days of Charles Shaw (aka 2 buck Chuck), but we still count on Trader Joe's for our "value" wines. We always have a difficult time remembering which wines we liked and which ones we'd left the bottle almost full. Luckily, we have a food blog so we can document these sorts of things.

Going forward we will be posting wine we've drank and will give it a simple "yay" or "nay" rating. Ultimately the rating is based on whether or not we'd buy the wine again. We are probably not going to to talk about the way it tasted, but may include food pairing recommendations. Majority of the wine will be available at a large grocery chain (Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, etc.) and in the $5 to $20 range. Remember, we are the average wine drinker and that everyone's palettes are different. We'll track our wine opinions on this page and if you try a wine that you like, please send us your recommendation.

Vintage: 2010
Type: Red
Producer: Villa Cerrina
Variety: Montepulciano 
Store: Trader Joe's
Price: $4.99
Verdict: YAY!

Happy Drinking.
