Wine – Gazela Vinho Verde NV

07302007.jpgOK, so I was in the Alberni LDB store with my friend Ryan when he told me I had to pick up a bottle of this… for $10 he said he’d give me the money if I didn’t like it.

Well, Ryan can keep his money. I can’t believe I like a $10 bottle of wine, but this is a great summer sipper. Despite its regularly-shaped white wine style bottle, it’s a lot like a Prosecco – effervescent, light and lightly citrus-fruity. I’m sitting here on a patio sipping it right now and I’m thinking that when it’s warm, this is almost the perfect aperitif (or liquid appetizer as I like to call it).

It’s not going to blow you away, but it more than delivers for the price. It would even pair pretty darned well with light fish or Thai dishes.

Seriously, I’m telling you – you can’t go wrong. Grab a bottle, go outside and sip it while relaxing. You’ll be glad you did.

$9.99 at BC LDB stores.
