High Coo – August 4 – National White Wine Day

Today is white wine day. I’m not a wine connoisseur or sommelier but I know someone who is. This is a gentle callout to Dr Brian Metters aka Dr B, the author of a very fine book It’s Not About the Wine! (c) 2020. I haven’t finished his book yet but he’s already mentioned many fine white wines. I wonder what his recommendation might be for today.

Today’s haiku is based on a quote from Dr B’s book and, more specifically, Olivier Magny, (p.10 and 305).

National White Wine Day

Many wines to taste

but the people, the moment,

make the difference.

Here’s to you Dr B.

    Wow Patrick that’s a heck of a post for me to live up to! I begin by raising my glass of Moschofilero-Roditis to you. (A white wine blend of two grapes from Greece, aromatic and citrusy) perfect for my lunchtime glass here in England at 12 noon. Your haiku today is brilliant and …. A real honour for me. Thank you so much for the space you have given to my book too, rather Eurocentric but there are key lessons in it to engage with wine completely across USA. Cheers Patrick🍷🕉

    Raise your glass and think,
    The soil, the people, the toil,
    Everlasting memories recalled

    Here’s to YOU Patrick, what’s yours today?

    Thank you, Dr B. I have a bottle of Pinot Grigio from Josh Cellars in Ripon, California that I haven’t had before. In addition to the reputation of the geography and the bottler, I like the quote on the label, “I created my wines as a tribute to my dad, Josh. He’s always on my mind.” Joseph Carr, Founder and Son. 🙂
