A time to celebrate the joys that good wine brings to our lives, National Wine Day will occur on May 25, 2023. On this day, expert and amateur wine lovers will recognize their love for their favorite wines and possibly even sample some new ones.
If you are looking for great ways to celebrate NWD truly, Scott Harvey Wines, one of the premier Amador County wineries, offers some suggestions for making the day extra special.
INVITE FRIENDS FOR A WINE TASTING
A well-planned wine tasting is an entertaining and interesting way to bring together friends or business associates for a unique social occasion. To add professional insight to the experience, contact an experienced wine host or winery to moderate the event and conduct the wine tasting in person or virtually.
Choose a theme for your event by selecting wines from a specific region or specific varietals for comparison.
Select wines that offer notable sensory differences so the participants can learn to discover and identify the unique characteristics of each wine. These might be the same varietals sourced from different locations. Or you may try a vertical tasting of the same wines from different vintages to yield some interesting insights.
SAMPLE A WINE FROM ANOTHER REGION
National Wine Day offers an excellent opportunity to try something new, perhaps a wine from a different growing area. If you usually purchase Napa Valley or Sonoma wines, broaden your horizons with wines from California’s highly regarded Amador County wineries.
You might try one of Amador County’s Scott Harvey Wines’ excellent 90+-rated Zinfandels or 2020 Mountain Selection or J&S Reserve Barbera Red Wine produced from grapes of various high mountain vineyards in and around Amador County.
CREATE A WINE-INSPIRED MEAL
Whether as an accompaniment or an ingredient, wine served at your dinner celebration is always a hit. A delightful wine paired with a delicious stew or sauces highlighted by the rich flavorful attributes of a great wine will always please.
Complete the dining experience with a delicious dessert and an appropriate wine, a 2014 Scott Harvey Forte, a port-style after-dinner wine made from Portuguese grape varieties grown near the Amador County wineries.
TAKE A WINERY AND VINEYARD TOUR
No matter where you live, a vineyard and winery are likely within driving distance. Take the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of grape growing and winemaking by scheduling a tour. These occasions never fail to provide new insights and information to assist with future wine purchases and enjoyment.
