A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"


Wine of the Month: Messapicus Salice Salentino Riserva 1999 ($13)

May 18th, 2004

Salice Salentino is a wine produced in Apulia, a very southern region of Italy, and although sometimes uninspiring or poorly made, Messapicus delivers a homerun. It is a blend of Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera, grapes that date back to the early Greek civilizations. This is a medium bodied wine with ripe lush berries blended with spices. This wine is rich, earthy and smooth; perfect for the summer months.
