I can't say enough good things about the wine tasting, every wine was great, ended up buying two bottles of the Jessica 2017 Verdelho, has a bit of a passionfruit kick, like a tropical vacation in a wine glass. The reds were terrific there, too.

Hi Melissa We are glad you liked all the wines - the Jessica Verdelho is named after my mother who really liked that sort of wine. Enjoy with some Asian dishes. It is wonderful.
