Toast to Spring Wine Gift Basket
Spring is here (eventually,) so let’s celebrate with a Toast to Spring Wine Gift Basket! A bottle of Cantina Offida Marche Classico Italian wine sits with assorted chocolates, cookies, and biscottis in a rustic metal container. Marche Classico [Indcazione Geografica Protetta] is composed of 100% Passerina Grapes which gives if a delicate floral and spice flavor with fresh citrus aromas. It pairs wonderfully with rich risotto or fresh seafood. This gift basket is the perfect date night ingredient!
Italian wines are becoming quite popular with the wine connoisseurs. The rich and full-bodied wines are comparable to high-end French wines at a fraction of the cost. Majority of the whites go wonderful with some form of seafood and creamy dishes while the reds pair with heartier dishes like pasta or red meats. Cantina Offida Wines are imported by Brooklyn Spirits, LLC of New York. This company is also responsible for Brooklyn Republic Vodka – a high end vodka distillery, also located in NY, that specializes in flavored vodka. They are known for being distilled and produced in New York’s borough, Brooklyn. Their flavors are wild enough for the younger generations while the vodka is smoother enough for everyone. Blueberry Coconut is the most sold Flavor.
Cantina Offida is a privately owned estate in the quaint town of the same name, located in Le Marche, Italy. Founded in the 1970s, the estate was once a cooperative. In 2010, a partnership of growers took over the company and instantly began revamping the property and improving the equipment. Because of this, the winery was able to grow and produce high quality wines. Several grapes native to the Marche are grown here; passerina, trebbiano, sangiovese, pecorino, and montepulciano are the main vines.
