What did you do during the hailstorm this weekend?
I paired the apocalyptic storm with a vibrant Cava – Juvé Y Camps Cinta Púrpura Reserva 2011. It’s citrusy, light, and full of bubbles [which a good cava is]. I put some hailstones in it to bring it down a degree in temperature – actually just because it was freakin’ cool to do.
This is my second attempt to get the Weather Network to pay attention to pairing wine and weather. I first tried with Tornado Watch in 2011. I guess they’re only interested in Storm Chasers, Global Warming, and Force of Nature highlights. I think they’re missing out on the next ” blue ocean” – and i’m here to help.
