Truluck’s Hosts Poggio Al Tesoro

marissa-allegriniby Charles Duran

Truluck’s and Poggio Al Tesoro of Allegrini Estates hosted an intimate luncheon Thursday featuring wines from Tuscany’s Bolgheri region.  Until the production of Sassicaia, Bolgheri was a relatively anonymous wine producing community that focused primarily on white wines and rosés.  Prior to seating the guests enjoyed a 2014 Solosole, a crisp and mineral dense white made of 100% Vermentio grapes.  

Chef Eric Ho served some of Truluck’s classics including a chilled Shellfish Platter, Hothouse Tomato Salad, and choice of Hawaiian Ahi Tuna or Filet Mignon.  Dishes were accompanied by Poggio La Grola 2012, Poggio al Tesoro Sondraia 2011, and  Allegrini Palazzo del Torre 2013, which were served as a flight.  The grand finale was the chocolate cake paired with Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella 2012.   Continue reading

Meet Webster Cellars Winemaker Keith Webster

webster-with-wine-2photos and interview by Joey Stewart

We had an occasion to do a tasting with Keith Webster of Webster Cellars. As is often the case with great wine makers the man behind the wine is ever bit as interesting as the wine itself.

Webster grew up in Germany (his father was a spy) and often found himself visiting neighboring countries such as Spain, Italy and France and recalls his first wine as a Spanish Madeira. This was his foray into wines, and was hooked on Old World vintages that were lower in alcohol, high in acidity and extremely well-balanced.   Continue reading
