We love it when we’re lucky enough to find a great tasting wine at a similarly great price. Last week, the UK-based newspaper The Guardian ran an article by wine expert Fiona Beckett on how to improve your chances of doing that with one of our favorite varietals, pinot noir.
And now, even if the specific wines mentioned in the newspaper story are not available where you shop, another thought might be is to look for other pinot noirs or burgundies from these same regions that might be of good value. Hopefully, you’ll find success.

Recently, the noted British wine writer for The Guardian newspaper, Fiona Beckett extolled the pleasures of migrating to bigger, richer reds as the nights grow longer and the temperatures begin to drop. Beckett shares her love for some of her favorite values from local UK supermarket stores.
As the clocks change and the leaves fall from the trees, we have to agree with that sentiment of seeking out great value reds to add to the cooler, crispier evenings. Lately, our favorites are coming more and more from Spain and seem to be primarily Tempranillo or Tempranillo blends.

With the New Year almost here, we remain excited and optimistic about the year ahead and, hopefully, you do as well.
It will be good to finally have this past year in our rear-view mirror. And, while our New Year's Eve celebrations may be a bit different this year, this year's celebrations may be our most important in quite some time. Certainly we all have much to be grateful for despite all the challenges we all have endured since the pandemic arrived at everyone's doorstep early in 2020. Let's all hope that 2021 brings good health and postive vibes in all areas to each of us.
To kick off all those positive vibes, amNY.com has a variety of suggestions for bringing in the New Year in style. We only have one major point of disagreement with their several great suggestions. Where is part ways with an otherwise solid list of suggestions is on the glassware for our bubbly chosen for the evening. May we kindly suggest you forego the $4 stems from Target and treat yourself well with one of the many fine Stolzle flute options.
So, we wish everyone a joyous and fantastic New Year's Eve celebration. But, let us also all remember to be grateful and very thankful for all the many blessings we have.
From all of us at Stolzle, may 2021 bring you more happiness, good health and many more smiles!
Cheers to all!
