When life gets crazy, we get wine. But we swear there’s a magic quality to this Massachusetts grape. If you need a moment of peace to cut through the noise of the day, Running Brook Vineyard’s Dry Vidal Blanc can help.
This grape comes in two vintages from this Southeastern MA winery: 2013 and 2015. We are fans of the earlier vintage. It’s smooth and classic with just the right amount of acidity, whereas the 2015 was a bit on the sweeter side with more intense tastes and aromas than it’s well-balanced older brother.
Offering a balance of sweet floral notes, a full body and gentle acidity, this wine provides the balance and ease you need at the end of a mind-boggling, hectic day. Just a few sips can transport you to the grape’s origin landscape: a quiet expanse of lush, green land in the farm-friendly suburbs of North Dartmouth, MA. A glass of this is the perfect way to refresh and restart.
If you’re local to New England, check out the vineyard! All of their grapes are locally grown, and they offer some experimental blends you won’t find elsewhere: https://www.runningbrookwine.com/winelist
