Time 4 Wine @Brooklyn Mall - Unusual Varieties

Our theme for this tasting was "Unusual Varieties" at the stunning Con Amore Home Brooklyn Mall.

Junel discussed wines made from unusual varieties or varieties you don't often get to taste. Some the unusual varieties we introduced were the Italian varieties Barbera & Sangiovese. 

Wine maker, Christa from Huis van Chevalleriel, was there in person to introduce her very special Chevallerie Filia Brut Nature made from Chenin Blanc grapes. This is unusual because chardonnay or/and pinot noir grapes are usually used to make this style of sparkling wine.
