Vina Borgia - Ahead of the Curve… & Wine List Awards

July 15, 2010

Having dinner, enjoying a nice quality, inexpensive wine that I found at a tasting of Spanish wines back in March.  Lo and behold…checking out the issue of the Wine Spectator, that just arrived, and there it is among the “Best-Buys”.  Nothing like a little palate validation…I had already ordered a case.  At about $7/bottle who could complain.
Also, this issue covers the wine list awards…given our small population VT did very well with 30 restaurants getting the thumbs up.

Of Note:   our friends at The Turtle Island Cafe in Willsboro, NY are a first time winner this year.  Dave Martin has a great, affordable, and continually updated wine list, with a much deeper cellar behind it.  If you find yourself in upstate NY on the Cote d’Ouest of Lake Champlain, I highly recommend you plan to enjoy a meal there.
