It takes a village to overcome wine intimidation at Village Vino
by Gayle Falkenthal – Published at Community Digital News – 

The San Diego based wine bar keeps new wine drinkers coming back and knowledgeable wine drinkers intrigued.


“The idea is to get people to come in, find something they like, something they’ve never tried before,” adds Crisafulli. “It’s fun for us to extend people’s horizons a little bit. People tend to pigeonhole themselves when they don’t know wines to well. There is such a broad range of wines. A majority of wine drinkers are out there learning as they go. That’s the audience we cater to, people who want to be more adventurous and try new things.”

A rosé is a type of wine that incorporates some of the color from the grape skins, but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. It may be the oldest known type of wine, as it is the most straightforward to make with the skin contact method.
The most important question to ask when you buy rosé: Is it DRY? And that’s what you want: a wine that’s fresh and acidic, without extra sugar to bury its mineral/fruity/whatever flavors and aromas. Remember, it was super-sweet white zinfandel and its mass-produced brethren that gave rosé a bad name to begin with. You can read more about Rosé wine here.
