Open up the wine fridge and crack out the Amex statement – I want to know what beer and wine have you been buying (and drinking) this October 2021?
The buying pace has slowed a little this month, but I did pick up some Domaine Collier Blanc this week, which I’ve been meaning to do for an age. Also, some Roger Coulon 2012, because Christmas is coming and Champagne is necessary, plus some Vina Somoza Godella (which comes with a must-buy tip. I’ll report back).
Also on my ‘buy’ list is some 2019 Clonakilla Syrah, plus the lure of 2017 Massolino Barolo.
Meanwhile, there is some of the new Capital Brewing x Mountain Culture West Coast NEIPA in the post popping up this week which looks promising. I’m super keen to hear of any West Coast IPA you’ve been enjoying to add to my list (the pictured Bracket Brewing WCIPA was a recent highlight).
What about you? What have you been getting into this month?
