What To Sip During Your Paint And Sip Party"Artists and poets still find life’s meaning in a glass of wine." -Joy Sterling
For many people, the best part of a Paint N Sip Party, is being able to sip while painting. It tends to free the artist inside. But when I walk into a wine store, I will admit, I am often overwhelmed by the rows upon rows of beautiful glass bottles lined up on shelves, as if to say "pick me!"
So I asked "Stu The Wine Guru" for his recommendations. Stu Nudelman is the Concierge Specialist for Crown Wine & Spirits. His store located at 1030 NE 15th Avenue in Fort Lauderdale is just a few blocks from the Pinot's Palette art studio.
"California produce some of the best wines in the world so I selected three of my favorites. They are not only good for your painting party but also for date night and a girl's night out," said Nudelman.
Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc $13.99
Ferrari Carano Produces all of the most popular varietals made in California. They have an incredible reputation for producing outstanding Sauvignon Blanc such as Fume Blanc. This white wine is light, crisp, and perfect for a Florida lifestyle. Hints of citrus and tropical notes are found on the nose. On the palate you get some guava, Apple, and pear.
Smith and Hook Cabernet $19.99
Hahn is one of the most consistent wine producers in all of California. This incredible Cabernet has been made for the past 32 years from Hahn. It is made from grapes sourced from four different vineyards. This is a $20 Cabernet that drinks like a $40 Cabernet. Big and bold with a good amount of oak structure balanced with the right amount of fruit to satisfy the novice and the enthusiast at the same time.
Hahn SLH Pinot Noir $21.99
From The Santa Lucia Highlands, comes this well produced light, fruit forward, approachable, easy drinking Pinot Noir. On the nose, hints of cranberry, raspberry, baking spices, and a bit of oak. On the palate, many of the same fruit follow through from the nose but in addition, one tastes, cola, cassis and currant.
You can pick up these wines at your favorite wine store or at Crown Wine & Spirits. (Make sure to say hi to Stu!) And don't worry about glasses, corkscrews, ice buckets, or ice. Pinot's Palette - Fort Lauderdale provides everything you need to drink responsibly during your paint and sip painting party.
