La Chiripada


The Dixon area has a few wineries, La Chiripada happens to be one of my favorites and I make it a point to visit every year. This year I came home with a new white wine, Embudo Blanco. It is an apple wine that is tart with a hint of sweetness made from locally grown apples.

Hello Randy.
Brazil produces a good wine in the south. I guess the wine to which you refer should be excellent.

I liked the picture.

Good weekend.

For one that lives in Tuscany I am not a great wine drinker, but I'd like a taste of this one!

Looks such a pretty building. I didn't know you could make wine out of apples, I thought it was only cider. I wonder what the difference in process is?

I can think of all kinds of cooking opportunities for a wine like that.

I would like to try that wine, I haven't tried one like that. I used to strongly dislike wine and now I find myself drinking it now and then.
Have a good weekend.

Looks like a cool place!

My grandfather loves to make his own wine and I think he tried making apple wine one year.

Hope it tastes well!
