I stepped out last night to pass out some fliers for the Nous Non Plus (my band) show next Saturday in Austin.
My first and only stop was our favorite wine bar in town, Vino Vino (where I curate the website).
I was geeked to taste this fresh, clean, bright, zipping Lambrusco di Modena (Grasparossa) Opera by Ca’ Montanari.
But I was even more stoked to see the importer’s label on the back.
Yes, the dudes at Acid Inc. have made it to Texas, folks.
That’s music to my ears: I buy a lot of wine from these guys for Sotto in LA (where I curate the wine list) and their palates align nearly seamlessly with mine.
Thanks, Vincent, for bringing them here!
It’s great to see small groovy importers and distributors making headway in a town otherwise suffocated by the big guys.
Keep it coming, yall!
Did you by chance have that Lambrusco with a little Texas BBQ? I think that would be a pretty fantastic pairing!
