We’ve been talking with Jay Buchsbaum, a wine educator from Royal Wine Corporation, who has taught us a great deal about serving wine with our meal. Today we discuss the Pink, White and Red wines by W.
Q: Pink by W – I love it.
A: Thanks, GET IN LINE ...me too
Q: What makes it so special?
A: It’s meant to be fun and accessible and not a wine to ponder so it includes a variety of grape blends that give it an off dry lower acidity that's just plain fun to drink. The line is, "we've done all the heavy technical work, you do the fun part and enjoy."
Q: When would you serve this?
A: Serve well chilled and with just about anything, but because of its "accessible nature and taste" it’s even a great quaffing wine all by itself.
Q: What is “quaffing”?
A: To drink with hearty enjoyment.
Q: What does it pair well with?
A: See above, but it’s not meant for a complex or very rich dish... bbq's, pool parties, finger foods, desserts ...fun, easy eating for easy drinking.
Q: Is it the best hostess gift out there?
A: That's a matter of opinion and ONLY YOURS (I.E. THE PERSON GIVING IT) COUNTS............
Q: Is it a girly wine? After all it is pink!
A: Not at all! It’s a very fun everyday wine for all people who simply want to chill – girl, boy and in between.
Q: What made you decide to put it in this fab bag, it’s like a gift all wrapped and ready to go?
A: Great idea huh? Just seemed so excellent.
Q: Red by W – how does it differ from other reds on the market?
A: It too is off dry and accessible, just like the pink. In fact all three have the same 'raison d'être' .
Q: What does each wine in this line retail for?
A: About ten bucks or less ...again in an effort to make them accessible to all comers.
Q: If you can only buy one as a gift which one do you recommend?
A: I like the White by W best. Also if your host is nervous about staining her carpet furniture etc this white won’t...
