Many of my friends wouldn’t know that this is a thing- but it is; and I have not had a bad glass out of the five that I have tried.
I just want to encourage yall- to try an Eastern European wine, next time you see one. If you tell me it sucked, I will personally take you out for a glass that doesn’t.
In Portland, I have found wines from Eastern Europe and even Israel on the lists at both Kachka and Nicholas’.
Today, I attended a portfolio tasting for Small Importers, sold thru Mitchell Wines; who have brought a few Eastern European wines to Portland. Again, they were the stars of the show.
Please let me know if you find a restaurant or bar that sells wine from these regions. I can’t wait to try more wines from there, and see how they progress as they make their way.
