November 2008 Wine Recommendations; Great Values From Regions Off The Beaten Path!
The November 2008 wine recommendations have arrived. Wonderful flavors at great prices. This month I am looking at wines from countries that are a bit off the beaten path. these countries have a long tradition of winemaking; but they have been overlooked, while all the attention goes to more prominent producing countries. I believe that these wines are worth the hunt.
