I love neighborhood wine bars! Of course, the other half of B & B would say that I just love wine anywhere. That being said,, a wine bar becomes a neighborhood wine bar and one of my favorites because the staff treats you like family each time you visit. Of course, they need to have good food, wine and atmosphere. Since I split my time between the south suburbs of Denver, Colorado and Austin Texas, I have favorites in both cities.
I’ll admit it. On a hot afternoon out on the B&B patio, sometimes nothing hits the spot like a very dry rosé. In the past, my favorites have been exclusively Pinot Noirs. This summer’s rosé tastings included a few Cabernet and Malbecs but nothing lit my fire. However, I did find a Spanish Rioja (Tempranillo blend) I really enjoyed and I think you might like it, too.
So gentlemen, roll up the sleeves on your pink button down, grab your golf shorts and slip on your Topsiders (sans socks). Let’s drink some rosé on the patio before Fall is upon us and show the girls we ARE real men!
