It’s here, one of our favorite days of the year at PLANET GRAPE WINE REVIEW, Sauvignon Blanc Day! To kick off the celebration, New Zealand’s US Brand Ambassador extraordinaire, David Strada, personally delivered a meal box of baby shrimp, iceberg wedge salad with green goddess dressing, Hake chowder and Salmon with black lentils and carrots from Chef Parke Ulrich of Waterbar, Epic Steak, and Mersea on Treasure Island. In non-pandemic times we would meet on the isle at Mersea to share this meal and taste wines together. Our plating skills are not like those of a chef so there are no images of the delicious meal, but we do have lots of wine reviews to share. Here are our top picks for #SauvBlancDay 2020!
