Boy, what a week we have just had! Last Saturday my backyard had perhaps the most snow as the whole winter, and this weekend I have a tee time for golf. Crazy, huh? I know we all should be used to it, but a little consistency would be nice. Speaking of, “consistency” is something we strive to do at Fratello’s, be it with our food, or our service, or our wine program. Take this weekend, when we will be featuring Certified Angus Beef Bone-in Cowboy Rib Eye Steaks, Blue Marlin, and Arctic Char. I have my fingers crossed that any snow will stay away and be nothing but a distant memory, so it looks like great temps to head out for some fine food & wine. We’d love to see ya’!
I have made a few minor changes to our wine program. The Rhone blend from California, Juicy Rebound, has now joined the wine board, and the lighter style of Tempranillo from Palacio del Burgo from Spain, a Rioja, is still with us. As I mentioned last week, this Rioja is a different style of Tempranillo from what you might have experienced, and I find that it pairs very well with our menu. I also have received several different wines from Portugal that I plan to add to the board when space is available, and although they are not yet on our wine list we can make them available to you. These wines are inexpensive and are mostly made with grapes native to Portugal. Most of us know Portugal for their Port wines, which are wonderful and which we also have several on hand, but they also make excellent red and white wines as well. We already have an amazing red from Portugal on our list, and I plan in the coming months to introduce other wines from this area to our program. As I have
often said – and will probably say again – there is a lot of amazing juice out there for us to enjoy, which is among the many reasons I enjoy wine so much. Just a thought.
I hope the sun brings smiles to your faces and perhaps adds a little more skip to your hop (?), and most importantly that you are well. Thanks for your continued support and friendship, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
