What wine goes with cheesecake? Summer?
Alicia Wilbur is pretty much the only female, Jewish enologist or wine scientist from Herzog Wineries (that we know of). Jay Buchsbaum is a well-known Wine Educator from the Royal Wine Company. Together they taste four late harvest wines from California: Late Harvest Clarksburg Chenin Blanc, Late Harvest Monterey County White Riesling, Late Harvest Orange Muscat, and Late Harvest Lodi Zinfandel. Watch this clip and you will learn a lot of cool-wine facts. But mostly you’ll be inspired to find the right wine to pair with your Shavuot cheese cake or, even better, sip all summer long. As I watched this clip, it was hot and sunny outside and now I want to get my hands on one of these Herzog babes! What can I say – my visit to Herzog’s wineries in Oxnard was an experience I will never forget, so I am admittedly biased. But with good reason. Everything that comes out of Herzog is just so yum.
Happy Shavuot – and have a great summer too!
