In the lead up to our move to Rio de Janeiro for Hub's job with Street Child World Cup, we decided to have a few friends round for food and wine. Inspired by my WSET wine course and Erin's successful cheese night, Hub and I decided to throw a wine night. We wanted it to be very informal and more about enjoying the wine than critiquing it. We asked friends to bring a bottle of wine of their choice, selected from a wine shop instead of the local off-license.
And of course wine night wouldn't be complete without some munchies. We started off with dips, chips, crudite and cheese. After the third tasting, I busted out my homemade pizzas, but by then things got a little hazy. I forgot to take photos. Oops!
We had a good selection of both red and white wines and made sure everyone tried a glass (or two) of each. All the wines we tried were fantastic and here are the labels if you want to read up/buy them in the future.
