A question from Kermit Lynch to you…
As regular readers of our newsletter know, Kermit spends a good chunk of his year in France and Italy. He works, he relaxes, he visits friends. One of his absolute favorite places to mix his work and pleasure is on the island of Corsica. He just returned to his Provençal home after spending a week in Corsica visiting our three producers there and enjoying life on the island.
We import a beautiful Vermentino from Domaine Maestracci called “E Prove Blanc” (the 2008 $16.95). Kermit loves this wine and in the 2009 January Newsletter it was described as “Kermit’s house wine.” While tasting at Domaine Maestracci, Kermit was offered the chance to buy a Vermentino similar to the “E Prove Blanc” but in a five-liter box. Five liters is equivalent to 6 and 2/3rds bottles of wine. We don’t have a price for the five-liter box at this time, but it would certainly be cheaper than a bottle of E Prove. Kermit thinks the wine is a nice tasty dry white and will be a great value.
Please consider the possibilities. You could keep the box in your fridge for a month or so, drinking through it one glass at a time. Or what about a big backyard party, buy a few of the boxes, and keep the wine flowing without opening a new bottle every five minutes?
So let us know, would you be interested in such a package? Leave your comments below!
