I initially sampled this wonderful wine in 1995 during the fall Furniture Market in High Point! It was served with various types of cheese and fruit! I fell in love with it and it has been my favorite wine every since! When I go to the beach (Myrtle Beach, S.C. of course!) I like to take a few bottles along. Having a glass (or two!) of this beautiful wine while sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean is such a marvelous experience! Vernay is a wonderful with my Chicken Tetrazzini, a fresh salad, and rolls! It's also great with seafood broiled in butter & olive oil sprinkled lightly with various herbs and seasonings!(tilapia,scallops,shrimp.) Magnificent!
