Review: Bridlewood Estates Wine

5/01/2012 09:06:00 PM
Bloggery media rep DanDan swung by harvest last week to attend a Bridlewood Estates wine dinner.  I'd have to say, he's come a long way since the days of drinking boxed wine with me.  MmmMMm ... Franzia......

Here's what he had to say:

I recently had the opportunity to learn about the excellent wines made at Bridlewood Estates from the head winemaker himself, David Hopkins, at an event at Harvest in Harvard Square. Hopkins guided us through the history of Bridlewood, as well as how the unique climate and environment of California's central coast guided him in choosing the ideal grapes and styles for the estate.

I was particularly impressed by how well each wine paired with Chef Mary Dumont's meal. When asked, Hopkins attributed this to the fact that he first started work as a sous chef and, as a result, sees wine as something meant to be enjoyed with food; this focus is apparent as no wine overpowered any course, while certainly never taking a back seat either. With most wines between $10 and $20 a bottle, this very reasonably priced wine makes for an excellent addition to any meal. I personally highly recommend the Blend 175 as a well balanced wine that is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
